Tupolev Tu-95 seen in The Hunt for Red October.

The Tupolev Tu-95 (NATO reporting name: Bear) is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 entered service with the former Soviet Union in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least 2040. A naval development of the bomber is designated Tu-142 (on the ground, the main difference are the main undercarriage bogies : four wheels for he Tu-95 and six for the Tu-142). Both aircraft has four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines, each driving contra-rotating propellers. Some experimental aircraft were designed for theoretically higher speeds, but none attained or registered them. As of 2019, it remains the only turboprop-powered strategic bomber in operational use.
An airliner variant Tu-114 holds the record as the world's fastest propeller-driven aircraft. For Tupolev Tu-114 and its derivative the airborne early warning and control aircraft Tu-126, please use the dedicated category.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Tupolev Tu-95 and Tu-142.
