    On a roll. Why stop at 2 aircraft?

    Slightly odd looking machines when viewed head on but rather better from that angle, nice shot.

    Make the most of your swing-wings Russia, you'll miss them when they're gone, just like how I still miss the Tornado!

    White Swan was the very appropriate name the Soviet/Russian pilots gave to the Tu-160.
    The Su-24 was dubbed the Suitcase or “Chemodan” for its versatility and impressive load-out.
    Back in the Cold War days both the Backfire and the Fencer struck fear into the hearts of the NATO war planners! Laughing

    Forgot about them, fair point.

    Going slightly off topic and maybe better for the warbird thread but I reckon the best looking soviet swing wing was the mig-23.

    Especially when they were 'playing' with the USS Donald Gook in the Baltic a couple of years back.
