great bird, hope we can get 10-12 of these...............
No way to do this.
1 - Tu-160 is a dooms day bomber for "special occasions" only. This will be never exported nowhere.
2 - Russians have too few of them untill 2020, when their Tu-160M2 modernized version production will be renewed.
3 - It's too expensive for export.

these are strategy aircrafts,

india got need for these ???

but before these india requires fighter jets,

cruise missiles and MIRV warheads serve better instead of these.

yeah but point is india requires amca and fgfa before buying or making these,

thats useful for russia,

but india must not spend any resources on these when there is need of fighter jet is yet to be fulfilled.
