Russia developing aircraft fleet that will deploy army, tanks anywhere on earth 'within hours'

According to a new design specification from the Military-Industrial Commission in Moscow, the aircraft, dubbed PAK TA, will fly at a speed of up to 2,000 km/h and carry impressively high payload of up to 200 tons. It will also have a range of at least 7,000 kilometers, reported.
