Russian Pak Da

The PAK DA is going to be heavily based on Russia’s current supersonic bomber Tupolev Tu-160 and is expected to have it’s maiden flight by 2015. However it was also speculated that the PAK DA would be similar to the stealthy design of the America B-2 Spirit bomber.The PAK DA concept relies on the ability to fly at stratospheric altitudes (50,000 meters) with stealth features to avoid enemy air defenses.

The United States next generation bomber is going to be based on B2 Spirit, F-22 and F35 and is affordable. Although, I wish Northrop Gruman drop the F35 technology, because the F-35 Lightning II doesn’t have any anti-gravity technology. B2 and F-22 have the anti-gravity technology.
