Description: The Russian Air Force PAK DA is a fifth-generation strategic bomber intended as the replacement of aging Tu-95MS, T-22M3 and Tu-160 long-range bombers by 2020. This new attack aircraft would be used in both conventional and nuclear conflicts using high-precision weapons. The PAK DA concept relies on the ability to fly at stratospheric altitudes (50,000 meters) with stealth features to avoid enemy air defenses. It remains unclear if this new airplane will be able to fly at hypersonic speeds. Besides, the PAK DA could be used as the basis for a stratospheric reconnaissance plane.
On August 19, 2009, at the Moscow Air Show the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced the selection of Tupolev to develop the new generation strategic bomber. The contract between Russian MoD and Tupolev is for research and development of technologies related to the new airplane. In April 2013, the Russian Air Force selected a subsonic flying wing aircraft design as the basis for the PAK DA project with extreme stealth characteristics. In 2016 it was revealed that the new bomber will first fly in 2023 and will be able to fire air-to-air missiles.
