Putin orders two more “Doomsday” planes that would allow him to control Russian forces – .


Vladimir Poutine will acquire two new ultramodern “Doomsday” planes to be used during a nuclear war.

The adapted Ilyushin 96-400M allow the Russian leader to control troops and missiles during an atomic disaster.

The first of the new airborne command and control planes is currently under construction, a military industry source said.

The planes are designed for the president and other senior military, security and government officials in the event of nuclear war.

The planes are accompanied by fighters and can be refueled in flight.

“Russian aerospace forces will receive two air command posts based on the Il-96-400M,” the source said.

“One is now in production. “

The project is called Zveno-3S and the aircraft is adapted from the new Il 96-400M at the Voronezh aviation plant.

“The aircraft’s radio complex will deliver commands to troops, strategic aviation, mobile and silo launchers and submarines carrying strategic nuclear weapons within a radius of 6000 km (3,728 miles) Moskovsky Komsomolets reported.
