A Tupolev Tu-160 “Blackjack” refuels from a Ilyushin Il-78 “Midas”.
The Tu-160 was introduced in 1987 in response to the American B-1 bomber.  the B-1, however, was considered by some in the U.S military to already be obsolete, due to the ineffectiveness of hi speed, low level tactics against Soviet air defense.  It’s swing-wing design and overall airframe layout has a striking resemblance to the B-1, although it is much larger.

F8U Crusader waving off.
This early model Crusader was classified under the 1922 Naval aircraft designation system.
It went by mission (F) - design number (8) - manufacturer (U - Vought).  In 1962 the Navy discontinued this system and aligned with the USAF, renaming the Crusader the F-8 Crusader.
