        The planes are great. But the phrase:
        The aircraft is capable of carrying up to 40 tons of bomb load at a speed of over 2,2 thousand km / h over a distance of about 14 thousand km.

        really touches. At a speed of 2,2 thousand km / h, the flight range will be in the region of 2000 km. Total. hi
        14 km is a subsonic. And 000 km / h is just to break away from fighters with suspended tanks. With tanks, they lag behind, and without tanks, the fighter jets lack the fuel to intercept.

          14 km is a subsonic.

          This is the maximum range, and practical without refueling is 12300 km.
          In 2010, a record was set for range and flight time, which amounted to 18000 km (about 50 tons of fuel were refueled) and the flight time was -24 hours 24 minutes. hi

    It is the largest and most powerful supersonic aircraft in the history of military aviation and an aircraft with a variable geometry of the wing, as well as the heaviest military aircraft in the world, which has the highest maximum take-off mass among bombers. It is also the fastest bomber in service.

    I heard somewhere that since the days of the USSR there were 3 buildings left ... nothing was heard about the production of new buildings?

    Krasava and at the same time murderous .... So much for the economy torn to shreds .... Such airplanes that even US airplanes cannot compare with in many respects.

    Guys, what are we shoving our elbows here. Let’s master space already. How much blood has been shed, how much money has been spent to prove who has more pipysk. It's not funny anymore. We will play out that we will blow up the world, and it will no longer be important for anyone who is thicker and more. We need to develop planets, build colonies. This is where the seething energy of passionate people direct. And Igilovtsev there too)
