OverviewEdit

KAPO currently produces Tu-214 passenger planes and Tu-160 strategic bombers. There are also plans to start producing Tu-334 regional airliners and Tu-330 freighters.[1][2]

The company was established in Moscow on 14 May 1927 and moved to Kazan in November 1941. It has built more than 18,000 aircraft of 34 types during its history.[1]

After KAPO has upgraded the current Russian bomber fleet (see Tupolev Tu-160) it will start production of a "new-generation strategic bomber", the PAK DA.[3]
