The Tu-95 airplane is made according to a normal aerodynamic design with a high-positioned cantilever three-spar wing. Such aerodynamic design ensures high aerodynamic performance at high flight speeds. The improvement in performance has also been achieved through high wing aspect ratio, appropriate choice of the sweep angle, and the set of airfoils along the span. The Tu-95MC’s power generator is comprised of four NK-12M (MV) turboprop engines generating power at 4 x 15,000 h.p. with AV-6ON opposed four-blade airscrews.
Fuel is accommodated in the central fuselage tank, two centerwing tanks, and four integral wing tanks. Centralized refueling is used. Flight refueling probes are available.
