General Information[]

Tupolev Tu-160 is an event troop from Events, Chest or Sales that can be used as Troop Tactics.

The bombing route line is made from the nearest map edge. This is extremely relevant and often difficult to understand as you need to make sure that the flight path is safe without anti air towers.

Historical Description[]

The Tu-160 is a variable-geometry wing bomber giving it the ability to fly in an efficient "straight" wing configuration for bombing runs, but still achieve supersonic speeds in its "swept" wing configuration. The aircraft employs a fly-by-wire control system with a blended wing profile, and full-span slats are used on the leading edges, with double-slotted flaps on the trailling edges and cruciform tail. The Tu-160 has a crew of four.

Entering service in 1987, The Tu-160 was the last strategic bomber designed for the Soviet Union.
