Russia to build fifth-generation bombers
Moscow: Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Saturday reiterated plans to develop a fifth-generation strategic bomber aircraft.
"Alongside a fifth-generation fighter, there are also plans to develop an advanced long-range aviation complex. I am talking about a new strategic bomber," he said.
Maintenance and modernisation of the existing strategic bombers are not enough, he added.
His remarks come days after a senior cabinet member questioned the need for a new bomber.
