According Guns Performance information, the ATN-51 is a promising fighter-bomber that is being developed to participate in a possible conflict in the Arctic. The aircraft will be able to carry a huge stock of fuel – 32 tons. Thus, ATN-51, taking off from an air base in Siberia, will be able to fly to US territory, complete the task and return back.

The fighter will be equipped with a thrust vectoring engine that will allow it to reach an incredible speed of about 4.5 Mach. So the flight to the United States will take less than two hours. The practical ceiling of the car is 35 thousand meters.

The aircraft’s armament will consist of ten heavy supersonic rockets in a drum set and a multitude of air-to-air missiles. If the designers succeed in embodying such characteristics in metal, then undoubtedly, ATN-51 will become a real breakthrough in aviation technology. The first experimental machine is planned to create in the early 2020s.
