The Tupolev Tu-160 is currently the largest and fastest supersonic bomber in service and leasing the Tu-160 will play a crucial role in understanding the concept of operating long-range bombers and will also allow India to study those platforms for the indigenous development of Next Generation Hypersonic and Air-Launched Ballistic Missiles for long range targets like Beijing and Shanghai for nuclear attack mission.
