Gotta have high landing gear because of the propellers.The thing on the nose is a refueling probe.The rest, kind of a mish-mash between a B-36 and a B-29 and a B-52. Kind of. Still a very fugly aircraft.
Anhedral wings. I wonder what the roll rate is. More importantly, I wonder why high roll rate is important on a bomber. To escape the blast?I'd fly that in a heartbeat. Unless its anything like the AN-2. You need five hands to start that beast.
Worked on A-10s 2 years, aircraft kicked ass.Russian do build strange looking aircraft
The bear is a pretty remarkable aircraft.
The A-10 would like to see you in it's office for that remark, it won't be pretty.
1952 vs. 1976. Just saying. I loves me some brrrrrrrrrrrrtttt.
I understand they are loud.
The Tu-95 is one of the loudest military aircraft, particularly because the tips of the propeller blades move faster than the speed of sound.
Wonder why they couldn't knock-off whatever amount of tip it took to get that mach # below 1? BTW I understand the AT-6(WWII) has the same problem.
Nobody should make fun of an A-10 or Chuck Norris, stay safe my friends.
Brrrrrrt! Incoming in 3......2......
There is a legend that summerged submariners could hear them pass overhead.
