Tupolev design bureau has completed the design of Prospective Aviation Complex for Long-Range Aviation (PAK DA), Lenta.ru reports.

Jane's reports with reference to a source close to military-industrial sector, that the president of United Aircraft Corporation, Mikhail Pogosyan, confirmed the information. The production of components of the first PAK DA prototype should be launched soon.

Pogosyan didn’t unveil any details related to the advanced bomber. At present Tupolev design bureau and Kazan Aviation Production Association named after S.P. Gorbunov are taking part in the project.

It was reported in mid-February 2014 that Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract with Tupolev Company for development of PAK DA in 2013. According to the Director of the Aviation Industry Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, Andrey Boginski, under this agreement Tupolev was responsible for completion of detailed design and full-scale development of the advanced bomber.

The flight testing of PAK DA is scheduled for 2019. According to the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian long-range aviation, Anatoly Zhikharev, the first serial bombers of the type will be delivered to Russian air forces in 2025.

Presumably, the Prospective Aviation Complex for Long-Range Aviation will be a subsonic bomber featuring a flying wing configuration. Special attention will be paid to adoption of stealth technologies. It was reported officially that the aircraft will be capable of carrying hypersonic weapons.Tupolev design bureau has completed the design of Prospective Aviation Complex for Long-Range Aviation (PAK DA), Lenta.ru reports.
