    I know the Tu-95MS, I hear about the Tu-95C for the first time. I thought a random typo in the title, but no, the Tu-95S goes throughout the article.

    If these strategists would hit Ploiesti. Then the Wehrmacht would be struck by a critical shortage of oil products, with all the ensuing from here
