    The Russian General Staff Gen. Nikolai Makarov said, "The patrol flights should not upset anyone. These flights adhere to all international agreements "

    Tu-160 , Blackjack /white swan
    Tu-95 , also known as Tu-20, Bear

    The question is why use a Tu-160 for maritime patrol rather than and Il-38 that would be a heck of a lot cheeper and wouldnt piss anyone off?

    First one is "Bear" second one is "Blackjack". Personally I think no AirForce is complete without bombers. You need bombers to really send your enemy shaking. And besides no country can call itself really powerful without those.

    God when will I see real bombers in the RSAF instead of using modified CASA/IPTN CN-235 for that role? Blackjacks would be awesome for the RSAF and it will give it extended reach and capabilities.

    Does this look like a proper bomber to you??

    The Tornados are excellent bombers but as you can see the CN-235 can carry bigger bombers and in more numbers so its sortie carries more destruction power which will save the Jets for pin-point hits somewhere else.

    Please be a little more appreciative of tornado.
    It is so much more than what you are prescribing.

    Lastly, missiles are a lot more effective than bombers.

    If that was the case, world's leading airforces are idiots for maintaining a huge fleet of advanced aircraft/bombers?
