This was the first TU-95 of the 79th and 184th, the third bomber regiment that operates the strategic bomber. The 182nd Regiment is based at Ukrainka in the Amur Province in the far eastern part of Russia. The TU-95MS variant of the bomber was introduced in 1982 and originally developed in the 1950s. It has the capability to carry cruise missiles. This was demonstrated for the first time during Russia’s intervention in the Syrian Civil War in 2015.
The Tupolev Tu-95 is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 entered service with the Long-Range Aviation of the Soviet Air Forces in 1956 and was first used in combat in 2015. Four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines driving contra-rotating propellers make it the only propeller-powered strategic bomber still in operational use today. It is also one of the loudest military aircraft, particularly because the tips of the propeller blades move faster than the speed of sound. The Tu-95 is expected to serve the Russian Aerospace Forces until at least 2040.
