Blackburn Buccaneer S2. Using the more powerful Spey engines. The aircraft was designed to run at high subsonic speed at low level, but the lack of supersonic performance meant it was reluctantly accepted by the RAF after the cancellation of the TSR2. Always seen as a stopgap, the aircraft suffered from a lack of development of its radar and electronics.

Blackjack! The Tupolev Tu-160 is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber designed in the Soviet Union. Tu-160 is currently the world's largest combat aircraft, largest supersonic aircraft, and largest variable-sweep aircraft built. In addition, the Tu-160 has the heaviest takeoff weight of any military aircraft besides transports. Designed in 1981 and still in production. It was the last strategic bomber designed for the Soviet Union. It can carry 40.000 Kg at 2.220 Km/h.
