Bear in the clouds

The Soviet Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bear, a large four engined turbo-prop with eight contra-rotating propellers, is the Russian B-52. Introduced in the 1950s, the swept wing 90-ton strategic bomber with 165-foot long wings, can cover over 8,000nm without refueling.

Russia maintains some 55 Tu-95MS strategic bombers and they see lots of service, often popping up the Alaska coat and overflying far-flung U.S. territories.
