Photos of the day PAK DA Strategic Bomber Taking Shape

Russia’s plans to develop the new bomber for use in the next decade but some experts remain critical of Tupolev’s ability to undertake such a large project independently.

The development of the Russian Perspective Aviation Complex of Long-Range Aviation (PAK DA) which is to replace Tupolev-95MC and Tupolev-22M3 planes, except the latest Tupolev-160, in the 2020s-2030s is being discussed in the press again.

According to some reports, the Russian Air Force has already chosen the shape of the new plane. It is to be a small inconspicuous long-distance subsonic plane. The media reports that the development of the new plane is being carried out by the Tupolev Design Bureau.
