The Tu-160 Blackjack is a Russian strategic bomber used by the Consortium during the Day of the Consortium.[1]

OverviewEdit

The Tu-160 Blackjack bomber costs $3800 and is a fast and very powerful bomber. Its payload is almost as powerful as the B-2 Spirit’s, and covers a much larger area.

BackgroundEdit

The Tupolev Tu-160 is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber designed by the Tupolev Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. Although several civil and military transport aircraft are larger in overall dimensions, the Tu-160 is currently the world's largest combat aircraft, largest supersonic aircraft, and largest variable-sweep aircraft built. In addition, the Tu-160 has the heaviest takeoff weight of any military aircraft besides transports.

Entering service in 1987, the Tu-160 was the last strategic bomber designed for the Soviet Union. The aircraft remains in limited production, with at least 16 aircraft currently in service with the Russian Air Force.

TriviaEdit

  • The model of the Tu-160 appears to be a B-1B Lancer, not an actual Tu-160 bomber. This is likely an oversight by the developers.
