Tupolev Tu-95 "Bear Bomber"

I’ve decided to update the previous feature request on the Tu-95 as the older one posted by @Narroc_Wim was posted over a year ago and it didn’t have a picture.

Here are some reasons why it would be a great addition to Infinite Flight!

  • It’s a strategic long range bomber, ideal for global ;)
  • It’s the only propeller bomber still in use today!
  • It’s contra-rotating propellers would look amazing with engine on/off!
  • It’s the loudest military aircraft!! The tips of the props move faster than the speed of sound, you’ll here this thing coming from a mile away!
  • The sim is lacking Russian aircraft! I couldn’t think of any other Russian aircraft as iconic as the Bear Bomber!

Potential liveries: Russian Federation, Ukraine, USSR, and Soviet Naval Aviation

What are your thoughts?

It would be a good competitor against the American version of this. What’s it’s name?

Later it turned into the fastest passenger prop airplane as the Tu 114, although not in service anymore.
Would be a good plane.

I want to say the B-29 but I’m not 100% sure

Great! We can pretend we are Russians and fly close to other countries airspace for the fun of it so they have to dispatch fighters to intercept us 😂 Can’t want it more!

It must be fun for the Russians, knowing they can just roll up outside someones airspace and guarentee some fighter jets will come along to escort them.
I bet the bomber crews get some awesome pictures of the Eurofighters and F16s.
