Russia to create unmanned strategic bomber

Commander of Russian Long-Range Air Force Lieutenant General Sergey Kobylash said in an interview to the newspaper Moskovskij Komsomolets that Russia plans to create an unmanned sixth-generation strategic bomber by 2040.

According to Kobylash, in addition to the modernization of existing Tu-160, Tu-95MS and Tu-22MZ bombers, the Russian military is planning to create a new long-range aircraft. “We are also planning to develop a subsonic strategic bomber of the fifth generation,” said Kobylash. He did not mention the specific dates of its production.

In December last year, Kobylash said that the Russian Air Force received a modernized strategic missile-carrying Tu-160M2 bomber. According to him, “this aircraft will have no competitors in the years to come.” According to him, the speed of the missile carrier is 2230 km/h, which exceeds the speed of NATO fighters.

  1. Great idea . So many of their aircraft crash ,at least with these no crew will be harmed when they eventually crash.

  2. According to him, the speed of the missile carrier is 2230 km/h, which exceeds the speed of NATO fighters.

    Is it faster than a NATO missile?

  3. More bollocks and bullshit.

    If if can only do 2230KPH its still 200KPH blow the admitted top speed of an F-22.

    Typical of the Ivans, another announcement of a weapon that some dreamer has come up with, rather than researching if it is actually possible, let alone how to build or finance it.

    I’m sure if Ivan was asked whether he would like a figment of someones imagination or to have a shit indoors, would prefer the latter. Shame he’ll never get to take a shit indoors.

What is your opinion?
