They should really build some more Tu-160s. Right now only 15 are operational compared to about 100 B-1s. So unfair...

100 B-1Bs? Hardly. Try more like 80 at most. And even if Russia wanted them, how the heck do they expect to pay for them? They're still broker than I was in college. INCLUDING the days when I had to ration out the ramen!

Well....even 80 that's still alot compared to 15...if the US is all about "nuclear treaties and limitations" and all that then they should have 15 too. I had a thread bout these treaties earlier.

I suggest that you do some research about what is "fair" under the treaties that were negotiated between the U.S. and the then Soviet Union.

Here is a link to SALT II http://www.state.gov/www/global/arms/treaties/salt2-2.html

Makes for dry reading but it, along with the other treaties will show you that it was as "fair" as the two governments could make it for the time.

You seem to want to live in the USSR of twenty-five years ago....The fact is that Russia does not need that type of bomber as the threats it faces today are much more internal and from immediate neighbors. Russia is much better off today spending the money on internal development than on high priced power projection.

Isn't the Tu-160 supposed to be heavier and faster, though with less range, than the B-1?

The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
