Cartoon brilliantly imagines Ireland’s response to those Russian bombers

There has been a lot of discussion in the news over recent days about the Russian aircraft that entered Irish-controlled airspace, and many have been wondering about the Air Corps’ ability to respond effectively.

After those Russian bombers flew a little too close to comfort on February 18th, cartoonist TwistedDoodle imagined what our response might be if it were to happen again.

Posted on February 20th, the cartoon resurfaced on Reddit's Europe section today. You can check out more of Twisted Doodles' amazing work here and here.
