(The Sun) Defense chiefs have rehearsed a huge cyber-strike to cripple Moscow if Vladimir Putin ever launches a military attack on the West. Senior security sources are reportedly concerned Britain’s military resources are ill-equipped to respond to Russia short of firing Trident nuclear missiles. Senior security sources say they are concerned Britain has a “capability gap” that has left commanders with not enough firepower to
take on Putin’s military might, reveals the Sunday Times. And reports claims exercises on the threat posed by Russia have left officials “ashen-faced” at how any confrontation with Russia could escalate out of control. Top level Whitehall officials have now vowed to step up Britain’s offensive cyber-attack capabilities in readiness for any future conflicts with the Kremlin. The news comes as 5,500 British troops take part in their biggest military exercise for a decade to improve their combat readiness.
