Russia To Design New Long-Range Strategic Bomber

The decision to start the development of a new strategic bomber for the Russian Air Force, the so-called perspective long-range aviation complex, has been made. Russia’s Vice Prime Minister Sergey Ivanov officially confirmed the rumors about it when he answered a question during a meeting with Russian reporters in Washington.

“It has been decided. I am saying this openly, clearly and loudly,” the official said.

The decision will be officially registered in the state arms program developed for the period of ten years, Itar-Tass said.

“The program has not been approved yet, it is currently being prepared,” Ivanov said.

The official added that he was speaking about the beginning of works only. “Research works and tests will come first, the industrial production will be launched afterwards,” he said.

Therefore, there is no information about technical specifications of the new aircraft – whether it is going to be a subsonic or an ultrasonic bomber.

“The information about it will appear in two or three years,” Ivanov said.

During his visit to the United States Sergey Ivanov visited the launch facilities on Cape Canaveral and NASA’s Space Center in Houston. The official also conducted talks with officials of the Pentagon, the State Department, the National Security Council and the Senate.
