The Tupolev Tu (Russian: Туполев Ту; NATO reporting name: "Bear") is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in , the Tu entered service with the Soviet Union in and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least A development of the bomber for maritime patrol is designated Tu . Tu BLACKJACK (TUPOLEV) The Tu is a multi-mission strategic bomber designed for operations ranging from subsonic speeds and low altitudes to speeds over Mach 1 at high altitudes.

Squadron deployments to Long Range Aviation began that month, prior to the Tu was first publicly presented in a parade in However, if the pilot sees a flock of birds before landing, he has the opportunity to briefly turn on the lasers. Russia has yet to develop a fifth-generation fighter and has just started testing a prototype, known as the T, which is not expected to enter service until A new requirement was issued to both Tupolev and Myasishchev design bureaus in Combat Aircraft since It already has RAM coating and although the engine intakes are not S shaped to hide the front engine fan blades they have actually applied RAM material to the front fan blades to reduce their radar return. The Tu is a multi-mission strategic bomber designed for operations ranging from subsonic speeds and low altitudes to speeds over Mach 1 at high altitudes.
The TuM2 is a new upgraded variant of the late Soviet-era Blackjack, which was built in very small numbers before the collapse of the Soviet Union in The new date reflects a slight shift from previous Russian government statements, which had indicated the new production Blackjack would fly in with production starting in Many analysts, expect that the new Blackjack will become the backbone of the Russian strategic bomber force of the future assuming Moscow can find the funding for the project in the current economic climate.
The TuM2—though it more or less retains the same airframe—is practically a new aircraft under the hood. The new bomber will feature completely new mission systems and possibly be powered by upgraded versions of the existing Kuznetsov NK afterburning turbofan. The Russians plan to buy about fifty of the new Tu variant, however it is not clear if the 16 original model Tu airframes will be upgraded to the new standard. Moscow can make do with the upgraded TuM2 for its strategic bomber force because unlike the United States Air Force, the Russian Air Force does not expect the massive aircraft to penetrate into enemy airspace to deliver its payload.
Instead, the Tu—which is capable of speeds of over Mach 2. As such, stealth is not considered to be particularly important. Indeed, one of the advantages of a highly visible strategic bomber is that it enables nuclear signaling. But the TuM2 is not likely to replace the long-serving Tupolev Tu Bear—the two bombers will likely operate side-by-side for decades to come.
As such—like the B—the Tu likely has many years of service left before it is eventually replaced. It will likely remain the primary Russian strategic bomber for at least two more decades. The stealthy new Kh— which proved itself over Syria —and its Kh nuclear-tipped variant are both designed to penetrate into heavily defended enemy airspace—allowing the bomber to strike from afar.

The Tupolev Tu Russian: Bear is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in , the Tu entered service with the Soviet Union in and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least The aircraft has four Kuznetsov NK engines, developed by the Kuznetsov Design Bureau with participation of Ferdinand Brandner and other captured German engineers, each driving contra-rotating propellers.
An airliner variant, the Tu , holds the record as the world's fastest propeller-driven aircraft. Some experimental aircraft were designed for theoretically higher speeds, but none attained or registered them. It also remains the only turboprop-powered strategic bomber in operational use. Its blades, which rotate faster than the speed of sound, according to one media source, make it arguably the noisiest military aircraft on earth,  with only the experimental s era Republic XFH "Thunderscreech" turboprop powered American fighter design as a likely rival.

The design bureau led by Andrei Tupolev designed the Soviet Union's first intercontinental bomber, the Tu , a scaled up version of the Tu-4 , a Boeing B Superfortress copy. A new requirement was issued to both Tupolev and Myasishchev design bureaus in The big problem for Tupolev was the engine choice: Tupolev's proposal was selected and Tu development was officially approved by the government on 11 July Unlike the advanced engine design, the fuselage was conventional: Retractable tricycle landing gear was fitted, with all three gear strut units retracting rearwards, with the main gear units retracting rearwards into extensions of the inner engine nacelles.
After a successful flight testing phase, series production of the Tu started in January For a long time, the Tu was known to U. While this was the original Soviet Air Force designation for the aircraft, by the time it was being supplied to operational units it was already better known under the Tu designation used internally by Tupolev, and the Tu designation quickly fell out of use in the USSR. Like its American counterpart, the Boeing B Stratofortress , the Tu has continued to operate in the Russian Air Force while several subsequent iterations of bomber design have come and gone.
Part of the reason for this longevity was its suitability, like the B, for modification to different missions. Whereas the Tu was originally intended to drop free-falling nuclear weapons, it was subsequently modified to perform a wide range of roles, such as the deployment of cruise missiles, maritime patrol Tu , and even civilian airliner Tu An icon of the Cold War , the Tu has served not only as a weapons platform but as a symbol of Soviet and later Russian national prestige.
