Tu-95 Bear was built to carry the first Soviet Nuclear weapons after WW2. The design had to be huge to carry 20 tons and yet have a decent radius. What was created was the Bear (NATO Codename). This book is a fine history of the Tu-95 bear. It starts with a history of the evolution of the Bear from the Boeing B-29 to the Tu-4 (B-29ski), the Tu-80 and the Tu-90 to the Bear. Each variant is described and for the most part pictured in this well illustrated book. There are many plan views. There is a very short section on a Tu-95 model kit.

Tupolev Tu-95 Bear - Warbird Tech Vol. Yefim Gordon. Of course, the B-52H is a much more impressive strategic bomber vice the "Bear" since the counter-rotating props were always a problem while the B-52 has morphed into the best bomb delivering weapon and with over 60 years in the USAF inventory, that speaks volumes. The AF will keep the 87 "H" models in the inventory well beyond 2040. that means that the BUFF could well exceed 100 years with the Air Force.

Thus, the Tu-95 Bear and the Tu-142, its close relative, were born. The Tu-95 is a large, heavy strategic bomber with a slim fuselage, swept wings, and four powerful turboprop engines driving counter-rotating propellers. It remained in production as a maritime patrol aircraft and cruise missile carrier more than 30 years after it was first produced. The aircraft was revolutionary in the application of a swept wing and turbine powerplants

During the 1940s, the Soviet government, knowing of the American nuclear program, elected to begin work on its own nuclear weapon program. The goal was to create and test the first Soviet atomic bomb within a short time interval to counter a major postwar threat from the West. An important secondary concern became apparent: how to deliver that weapon to the target. Thus, the Tu-95 Bear and the Tu-142, its close relative, were born. The Tu-95 is a large, heavy strategic bomber with a slim fuselage, swept wings, and four powerful turboprop engines driving counter-rotating propellers. It remained in production as a maritime patrol aircraft and cruise missile carrier more than 30 years after it was first produced. The aircraft was revolutionary in the application of a swept wing and turbine powerplants. Yefim Gordon and Peter Davison are the authors of other Specialty Press titles such as Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-15 Fagot, Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-29 Fulcrum, and Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker. Together they use over 200 photos to illustrate the story of the Tu-95. Topics covered include design, development, structural detail, international production, trials, comparisons, and much more.

Tu-95 Bear was built to carry the first Soviet Nuclear weapons after WW2. The design had to be huge to carry 20 tons and yet have a decent radius. What was created was the Bear (NATO Codename). It was a development of the Tu-4 (the Soviets literally created a B-29 by reverse engineering it). The Tu-95 is a very interesting looking plane, swept wings and counter rotating turbo props with long landing gear.

If you've seen Cold War aviation photos, especially of Naval fighters like the F-4 Phantom, this is the plane being intercepted and escorted away. The Tu-95 had many versions - recon, carrying cruise missles, anti sub warfare.

Authors Yefim Gordon and Peter Davison give a very detailed account of the development of each varient of the plane. Lots of clear B&W photos, line drawings and 8 pages of color photos help the reader trace the history of this elegant looking bird. One really nice twist - a chapter reviewing the different plastic models of the Tu-95 that are available.

Small things I did not like - the line drawings are small - big plane, hard to make larger & keep book affordable. Some of the captions are identical to the text which is wasted space. It does get dry reading sometimes. The section on operational history is redundant with previous chapters. These are the reasons why I took away one star.

I'd recommend this book for hard core aviation fans, especially of the Cold War era. Also good for modelers, folks who like reading about Soviet Aviation. Say what you want about a propeller driven airplane - it has passed the test of time.

The books in the WarbirdTech series have been quite good. This book is a fine history of the Tu-95 bear. It starts with a history of the evolution of the Bear from the Boeing B-29 to the Tu-4 (B-29ski), the Tu-80 and the Tu-90 to the Bear. Each variant is described and for the most part pictured in this well illustrated book. There are many plan views.There is a very short section on a Tu-95 model kit. This is a great book for aviation history buffs and is most affordable.

I grew up in the mist of the cold war, and always there was the shadow of a big bad bear lurking in the horizon ready to strike any minute, times had changed fortunately, but I was always curious about this unique aicraft,and this excellent volume has given me a real deep insight at the nature of the Tu-95,a must have if you like red stars on wings¡¡

If you've wondered what it was like during the Cold War when the "Old Soviet Union" flew up and the around the USA and our carrier fleet, you've got the check out this book! It presents everything you wanted to know about the Tu-95 & Tu-142 Bear Bomber! What the B-52 Buff is to the USAF, the Bear is to Russia, with every make & model that was produced.

USAF & USN fighter pilots will enjoy reading about this beast of a aircraft from there days of intercepting this leviathan,and still do to this day. I highly recommend this book to the model builder to make sure they get there model looking good.

Excellent detailed history for an iconic cold war aircraft.
Brakora
Good information about an airplane that is still testing our defenses 50 years after it was first manufactured.The book can be critized for spending too much time on describing the individual models rather on the airplane as a whole.

Some Good Images. Lacks all the fantastic drawings, details and well thought out descriptive text that would be expected from Yefim Gordon's Red Star series. Come on Yefim put together a Red Star book on the Bear. The Warbird Tech books look cheap, lack quality detail, print quality and definately are not proudly shown on the coffee table.
very good
