    Get short URL

    The Russian Tu-160 is a supersonic variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber/missile carrier. Moscow decided to renew the production of the world's largest supersonic bomber jets.

    The bombers will be equipped with an advanced radio-electronic warfare system, which is highly effective against anti-aircraft missiles and will make the plane "invisible." The next version of the plane, dubbed Tu-160M2, will have new capabilities.
