Combat aircraft USSR always alarmed the West. Soviet designers managed to create a truly powerful and unique machine. Some models are so successful that they continued active operation in Russia. US experts have compiled a list of the most dangerous combat aircraft of the Soviet Union, by maneuvering fighters to strategic bombers.
MiG-3, a high-altitude fighter of the Great Patriotic War, was on the list for flexibility - the aircraft exceeds all existing at the time counterparts in this respect.
The MiG-21 has been recognized as the most popular third-generation fighter. Created back in 1950, he operated almost to the collapse of the USSR.
The legendary IL-2 with a monocoque hulls was a legend and without recognition of Western experts. No wonder the pilots called the aircraft "flying tank" - a fighter protection was unprecedented.

The first place in the ranking of the most dangerous aircraft took Soviet strategic bomber, the Tu-160. Quick (twice faster nearby US B-52), heavily armed (drum launchers with aeroballistic hypersonic missiles) and able to run from side nuclear missiles X-55MS, whose capacity is 200 kilotons. Flight range of such missiles - 3000 kilometers of Tu-160 is able to cover the desired goal anywhere in the world.
