Tu-160 vs. B-1. Can not compare?

Immediately worth noting - the American bomber appeared earlier. The first flight of the B-1 made in 1974 year. Tu-160 took off on 7 years later. Many believe that the people of Tupolev simply sketched the plane at the damned overseas capitalists. This is not quite true. But the fact that the Tupolev Design Bureau worked with a very noticeable eye on the American aircraft manufacturers is an indisputable fact.

    It is a holiday today! 1000 years of IAS. Engineering and Aviation Service. With what I congratulate myself! Regarding the video. Ours did not look back at the Americans. The principle of the glider was developed by another designer. But in the 50s there was no way to do it. After a little time, Tupolev, having done the same thing, stole Myasishchev’s idea. cars.

    It is unfortunate that today little is written about the Myasishchev battery, but we will be correct - the Tupolev battery is a world name.
