The Tupolev Tu-160 is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing nuclear strategic bomber. On 10 September 2008, two Russian Tu-160 landed in Venezuela as part of military manoeuvres and deployment to Russian allies in South America. Military manoeuvres were made to test nuclear support and protection of South America, Venezuela, Brazil of BRICS, Cuba and other Russian allies in America against an possible U.S invasion of South America at a time of increasingly tense relations between Venezuela, Brazil, Cuba, Russia and the United States. In those times Hugo Chavez said the famous words " Yes, para que les duela pitiyankees"
