Got this news from another certain forum to update this board.



“Russian enterprises have begun production of the promising missile carrier PAK DA.
- The Ministry of Defense approved all the technical requirements for the aircraft. Work on the creation of PAK YES has been deployed in a timely manner at Tupolev and at cooperative enterprises, Denis Manturov, head of the RF Ministry of Industry and Trade, told Interfax.
The new bomber-missile carrier will replace the current family of long-range aircraft in the troops: Tu-22M, Tu-95 and Tu-160. PAK DA is designed according to the “flying wing” scheme using stealth technologies. It will be subsonic, the main purpose of the aircraft will be delivery to the launch point of a rocket with artificial intelligence. Depending on the tactical situation, the ammunition will determine when, where, and on what route to fly.
The engine for PAK DA is created by the United Engine Corporation. According to open data, the power plant will provide traction 23 ton-force.
Tests of the missile carrier will be held at the Tupolev base near Moscow in Zhukovsky. Earlier, the head of PJSC "Tupolev" Alexander Konyukhov said that the rolling out of the prototype is scheduled for 2021-2022.”

Russia greenlights production of PAK-DA stealth bomber


Sorry that I cannot hide my reservations, but how likely is this schedule?

"Flight tests of the aircraft is scheduled for 2027" and in the same report "to commence production for a possible delivery by 2027" are vastly different issues and given the issues they already had and still have with the Su-57; I'm not holding my breath.

Its a give or take since they are going with the modernization of the Tu-160 and Su-34s. I cant see why the excessive need for more bombers.

Given the parallel time scales for new build Tu-160M production (first delivery planned for 2021?) the stated timescales stated for the PAK-DA service entry and supposed replacement of all other Russian strategic bombers are way out of whack, even assuming relatively smooth development.

Bullshit as usual. And as usual much more probable misinterpretation of one words plus talking heads giving other empty words. Kinda same as with T-14 (which was never supposed to be delivered in 2300 number) or T-50 (which never had any reasonable issues during development, just same talking heads giving "introduction date" at three years after first flight (???) and then shifting it again, again and again).
