XD, that is the same angle as the Wikipedia page of the TU-95... in fact, I know that was your reference, cause that is all the same

 

still, nice work!

Thx;) turboprops were (then) very difficult for me. Really nice that you like it. :)

Wasn't this the plane with the tandem prop set up?

The only aircraft so loud that the US subs can track it on sonar! Crazy, huh?

Well, when those turboprops turn above the speed of sound, of course they make so much noise.

I love the look of the thing, and the contra-rotating props were genius for it's time, The United States doesn't even do that.

A question; can a F-22 survive from electromagnetic (EMP) blast?

I heard that MiG-29 can. (lol)

Hmm... A very interesting concept... I suppose the MiG could if the electronics were not attached to the body with metal. EMP travels through a machine the same way electricity would. If the inner-workings of the MiG are insulated from electrical "Issues" like EMP, Lightning Strikes, Power Surges, the like, I suppose it could. Russia and the United States have been in competition with equipment for years, it really came to a head in the Cold War. (but hasn't stopped since) We have the F-22 Raptor because of the Su-47, The Russians have the Pak-Fa because of our F-22 Raptor. Anyway, if the Russians have came up with a way to negate EMPs effect, I'm sure we have too. Afterall, We've been dropping Nuclear Weapons in tests for many years, we can't have our aircraft go down every single test, now can we?

A nuclear bomb is like an hand grenade... So, if you're inside the blast radius, you better pray for your life. Aircraft, tank or something else, wouldn't able to survive inside this blast radius.

A tip for drawing propellors on turbo prop aircraft. Have a look at some of the youtube stuff. In real life the light catches the blades in a certain way, At idle RPM the blades are almost feathered, when you want to move forward you move the blades into a flying position which makes them more aligned like you see them in the aircraft kits. There is always great debate about redering props in a drawing, but you can improve your style by observing the occasional video. In photographs some cameras are set at a high shutter speed and freeze the prop blade in the image.

new variants are carrying RK-55 "Granat" missiles. Modern war is not for classic bombers.
