Andrei Nikolayevich Tupolev (November 10, 1888 – December 23, 1972) was a pioneering Soviet aircrat designer. During his career, he designed and oversaw the design of more than 100 types of aircraft, some of which set 78 world records. One of his greatest achievements is the design of the TU-95 bomber.
The Tupolev Tu-95 ( Bear) is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 entered service with the former Soviet Union in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least 2040.
The Tu-95 Bear is probably the most iconic Soviet bomber during the Cold War and is considered the natural counterpart to the B-52.
Both the U.S. B-52's and the Russian TU-95's have been upgraded and will continue to serve both countries air arsenals through the 2040's.
