The objective of this challenge is to design a Soviet bomber to accompany the Tupolev TU-16 "badger" (decade 1950s) in the USSR's primary medium bomber fleet.

Weapons must include: At least one piece of armament and at least 6 bombs. Would prefer if missiles are not used.
The aircraft can be powered by either turboprops or jets but musn't have more than four powerplants.
Mods are not allowed but XML modding is ok.
Must be below 700 parts.
Must also be a fictional design - no replicas of existing aircraft.

The rewards will be 15 upvotes for first, 10 upvotes for second, and 5 upvotes for third.
However, each entry will get on upvote.
If you are going to design an entry for the challenge, please let me know in the comments box.

Deadline is June 7.

Best of luck!

    @AircraftoftheRedStar that's is fine. It'll take me a few days to judge all of the aircraft.m anyway. I'll mark the challenge as closed though

    I possibly will need one more day, or either you can accept it tomorrow. I have to attend my older brother’s graduation which will most likely take up the rest of the day. The aircraft is finished, just need to edit some settings on the gyroscope and write a description.

    No thanks. I’m am so close to finishing it. It’s not that it has a TON of decorations, it just is an incredibly weird shape to reconstruct. And also this is my first time making double-bogie bicycle landing gear. I will work extremely hard this week and try and get it and just a regular forum teaser out by this weekend.

    @AircraftoftheRedStar I'm going to keep the extended deadline of June 7 as other people have already submitted theirs and are awaiting the answers. You could release a low part version for this challenge???

    @Mustang51 yes it counts. As long as an actual aircraft was never built

    I might need you to delay it another week because this double-bogie bicycle landing gear I'm doing is very hard, and I also am going to create a cinematic teaser.

    @captainhall does it count as a replica of its something that was designed but never built?

    Hello everyone. I have decided to delay the challenge due date to June 7 - an extra week to allow some participants to finish their aircraft without an extension.
    Happy building!
