  • The system allows striking any point of the globe from anywhere in our country.
  • The received radii of action provide an opportunity of a choice of a route of flight to the purpose from the most vulnerable and weakly protected directions, if necessary bypassing powerful sites of air defense of the opponent.
  • The use of a projectile as a main weapon and a projectile with a ballistic missile on the final site allows the aircraft to not enter the air defense zone of the enemy and ensures the concealment of the approach of the projectile to the target.
  • The speed and altitude of the flight of the carrier aircraft and its defensive armament greatly increase the invulnerability of the aircraft.
  • The layout and dimensions of the carrier aircraft allow the use of various types of jet and conventional weapons.
  • The composition of the equipment and flight-technical data ensure the use of the aircraft as a strategic intelligence agent (in the main version) and a reconnaissance target in the interests of combat operations of the Navy.
  • The ability of the aircraft to base on the ground, snow, ice and water makes it, in fact, a non-aerodrome airplane, providing a wide aerodrome maneuver and invulnerability of the bases.
  • Seaworthiness of the airplane allows to provide wide interaction with surface ships and submarines both for performing independent operations (refueling in the sea) and during actions together with the Navy.
  • the dimension and layout of the aircraft allow installing atomic engines on it without radical modifications. "
