    I like Bear. The plane may seem ugly and outdated, but still packs a punch with its nuclear cruise missiles and long range. Russians may have fitted EW systems on these planes to evade radar.

    The Tupolev-95 has a civilian cousin, called the Tupolev-114. Nikita Khrushchyov went to US on that. One major modification was that while the wings on the Tupolev-95 are at the centre of the fuselage, on the Tupolev-114, they are at the bottom of the fuselage. This raised the height of the Tupolev-114 and Khrushchyov had to use the emergency ladder to exit when he landed in the US.
