Tupolev Honey?

According to recent reports Russian aircraft-makers plan to build 4,500 planes by 2025 as part of an ambitious plan to revive their ailing industry. Alexei Fyodorov, president of state-controlled United Aircraft Corporationsiad at a press conference "Russia must become one of the global leaders in aircraft-making." All this from the industry which survived thanks mostly to export orders for Sukhoi and MiG fighter jets. Makes you wonder what the airliner's will look like. (Just like those built in the USA and Europe - Ed)
