The term for creating the new Russian strategic bomber PAK DA is fully confirmed at the moment. This came in a statement by Air Force Commander Colonel General Viktor Bondarev.

“The work is underway in this direction. The development work is being performed. The funds have been allocated. Russia’s Tupolev Company has focused all its efforts on this plane. We have every opportunity to build this aircraft in time,” Mr. Bondarev said, noting that the first flight of the PAK DA should take place in 2019.

According to Long-Range Aviation Commander, Lieutenant General Anatoly Zhikharev, the Russian Army is due to adopt the PAK DA strategic bomber in 2023-2025. It is expected that the new bomber will be able to penetrate through modern air defences and suppress them. The PAK DA will be equipped with the newest complex of the radio electronic combat and high-precision weaponry.
