Description: The Tupolev Tu-160, Blackjack NATO-codename, is a long range, supersonic, variable geometry wings, strategic bomber designed to penetrate sophisticated air defense systems at low altitude and supersonic speed. It is the Soviet counterpart to the US Air Force B-1B Lancer strategic bomber. Armament, typically nuclear short range and long range cruise missiles, is carried inside two weapons bays located at the middle of the fuselage. The Tu-160 bomber is powered by four NK-231 (NK-32) engines rated at 55,100-lb each. The NK-231 engines provide supersonic flight capability and intercontinental range through fuel consumption optimization. The Tu-160 bomber features in-flight refueling capability for extended range and maximum payload operations.

The Russian Air Force Tu-160M strategic bomber is an upgraded version of the Tu-160 Blackjack aircraft. The new version features new weaponry, improved electronics and avionics, which double its combat effectiveness. In early 2012 the Russian Air Force released plans for the fielding more than 10 Tu-160M upgraded aircraft by 2020.
