    The grace and style of this aircraft is symbolic of the durable power of Russian designed aircraft.

    Perhaps Turkey and Israel will be visited it soon in a Heart and Minds tour :)

    Wonder if they will do a EW version and a long-range strategic bomber escort variant? (perhaps armed with 600km+ air-air missiles for downing tankers, AWACS, maritime patrol aircraft, ISTAR and SIGINT/ELINT platforms)
