I wish they bring in Tu-160 Blackjack, we need that aircraft.......
What are possibilities for deriving India's own strategic bombers from Tupelovs like Chinese did?

Currently, US, Russia & China mainly operate fleet of strategic bombers. Bombers also ensure India's long term precise nuclear delivery capability in case bombs on missile don't remain effective!

Don't have much knowledge of bombers but can we use our transport aircrafts as bombers? e.g. C17 globemasters?
