I would say PAK-DA is a rather very late answer to the B-2,

Well, I think, if you say it absolutely right, then “80” is the answer to all American stealth strategic bombers, including promising ones.
But closer not to the B-21, but to the NGB. And larger. This is judged by the model on the table.
As well as maintaining parity with growing China.
I think the B-21 will have the most advanced skin and coating.

This whole "answer" discussion is a bit absurd, especially the idea of PAK-DA barely matching a 1980s bomber that had to be modified for low-level flight for better chance against Soviet IADS.

Besides, Russians have different strategic force set up and their own way of doing things especially when it comes to design priority. This statement does pose an interesting but unlikely suggestion that PAK-DA might perhaps be a supercruiser.

We have very good developments, and on the basis of the UAC, which brought together the best designers and the best engineers who set the tone for the entire world aircraft industry, a new strategic bomber is being created, which will, in particular, be faster. Motor-building concerns are preparing an engine for him according to the latest developments, ”he told RIA Novosti.

Sytnik emphasized that modern technologies make it possible to use composite materials during construction, due to which aircraft become lighter and do not warm up so much at supersonic speeds.
Besides, all of these new strategic bombers are just warm-ups for future space-based strategic nuclear weapons. Note how B-21 is cheaper and smaller than B-2, or Russia's decision to reinstate an already produced supersonic strategic platform(Tu-160) and going with replacing Tu-95s with a structurally simpler and cheaper(in comparison with a supersonic bomber) flying wing stealth bomber.

Absolutely incredible. This is so, just chatter.

I like the look of the current design for the PAK-DA bomber, if this is indeed what the finished bomber will look like.

That tale arrangement seems unlikely unless they are de-prioritizing all aspect RCS.

Sorry, but that's a joke!
So I write that this is speculation. I just haven’t seen this before.
The second gambler, this is apparently a "creative reflection" of that old model from the transmission of twenty years ago.
