Modernization of the Tu-160 has reached a new level

47
Creation of a renewed strategic bomber Tu-160М2 is entering a new stage - specialists of PJSC “Kuznetsov” (part of the JDC) have started testing a new engine for this aircraft, reports NewInform.




The engine is already in the gland; on preliminary tests it showed the necessary parameters,
said the company's managing director, Sergey Pavlinich.

At the same time, he noted that now the plant is already preparing for the start of the mass production of new engines.

“Some nodes of NK-32 02 series underwent modernization - it became more economical. At the same time, the resource capabilities of the power plant have been significantly expanded. Thanks to the new “heart”, the Tu-160М2 missile carrier, the production of which will begin in the Russian Federation, will expand its capabilities and increase the flight range, ”the material says.

The publication reminds that the bomber developed in the USSR was originally conceived as a carrier of long-range cruise missiles with nuclear warheads. However, it was further substantially refined, having the opportunity to use bomb weapons and other strike weapons. In the future, the plane will be equipped with high-precision cruise missiles of a new generation to hit targets of almost all classes.

        Exactly:
        weaponry:
        Initially, the aircraft was built exclusively as a missile carrier - carrier of long-range cruise missiles with nuclear warheads.

        Armed with the Tu-160 strategic cruise missiles X-55СМ are designed to destroy stationary targets with predefined programmed coordinates, which are entered into the memory of the rocket before the bomber takes off. Missiles are placed on two MKU-6-5У drum launchers (similar ones are installed on the Tu-95MS), six each, in two cargo compartments of the aircraft. To destroy targets at a shorter range, the armament may include X-15С aeroballistic hypersonic missiles (24 missiles, 12 missiles on each MKU).

        After appropriate conversion, the aircraft can also be equipped with free-falling bombs (up to 40 000 kg) of various calibers, including nuclear, one-time bomb cartridges, naval mines and other weapons.

        In the future, the composition of the armament of the bomber is planned to be significantly enhanced by introducing into its composition high-precision cruise missiles of the new generation X-555 and X-101, which have an increased range and are intended to destroy both strategic and tactical ground and sea targets of almost all classes.

          The X-101 DOES NOT PLACE in a bomb bay ... It’s necessary to remake the plane ... Well, don’t convince me of delirium. Understand that I’m with this machine from the testing stage of the Chief Designer to Priluk (more than 30 sides went through ... well, say, my hands).

            The film says that this aircraft was originally developed by Myasischev, and then given to Tupolev for revision. You are aware of these "gossip", was it really so?

                The latest X-101 cruise missile was allegedly involved in airstrikes delivered on Tuesday by the Russian Aerospace Forces to the positions of the “Islamic State” in Syria, this was its first combat use in history; this conclusion can be drawn from the video published by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

                “A high-precision strike by the latest cruise missile from the Tu-160,” the description of the entry published by the Russian military department says.

                And by reference, just shooting the drum with x-101

          SSI, let me ask a question: do you really believe that resuscitation of the tu160 is possible? I really want to hear a positive answer, if these swans were walking through your hands, I think you know better than anyone how realistic the reproduction program is. What am I asking? We regularly visit KAPO; we drive triplets to modern. And in communicating with the factory workers, everything is bad with tu160, and on the news everything is super, I don’t already know whom to believe. I myself was in Kazan last time in September 16th, I talked with the military representative and with hard workers, they are pessimistic.

            I very weakly believe, very ... Judge for yourself, during the USSR, when KAPO was fully equipped with workers and all subcontractors were in order, TOTAL 4 cars were produced per year! True, the "45th" was produced, more than 30 cars a year, but ... And the current plant - I think% 30 of the previous one remains, and the allies who were in the republics ... Here is my opinion. Even the modernization of 4503 - per year per teaspoon ...

              Thank you for the answer, to be honest, I expected something like that, I can only hope that they will build at least one a year, at least something, our situation is not simple, By the way !!!!! Another question: being on retraining in Ryazan, for a long time, the SD teacher told me that one of the options for upgrading the Tu22m3 was installing hk32 instead of hk25, even the plane was built with these engines, it stands in Ryazan in the YES museum, the external difference is 12 wings recharge on the air intake instead of 9 on the triple with nk25. But something didn’t seem to go, have you heard anything about it? After all, in any case, collected (and possibly tested in Kazan)? What do you think, is it possible to resume work on this topic and in general, installing nk32 on a backfire is possible? We would then revive the park by 80%. I am sure that our probable friends would have combed themselves a lot more from this news than from any mythical YES PAKS.

                NK-32 was not enough ... Kuibyshev plant did not have time to release the 32nd for the Tu-160, and with these engines the fires would fly much better. But only now, it seems, they will begin to build engines, and several years ago Kuibyshevites could not even make major repairs ... By the way, I’ll ask a question, but how are things with ABSU-145? You drive from the parts of the car ...

                  And what exactly are you interested in? ABSU is sometimes harmful, but in general there are no complaints, on some sides the speed does not “hold” to Vstab. It even knocks it out, you hope it and jumped out of time for the restrictions. Personally, I don’t like to go into the landing in the director mode — the leaders lie, how late they give out the info, in a 50- 50 automatic machine, sometimes I’m full of pants to joy, and sometimes 20 ° turns on the PC, you switch to manual. The stabilization modes are ok (except for speed). ABSU from NK and ABSU from 015t are also different, there are already more questions to the rear cockpit. And of course, directly the mat.chast - I don’t remember when it happened so that on the TOS ABSU "correct.absu" the whole flight burns, we can’t flip the "memory deletion" in flight, although it’s impossible. In general, you understand about ABSU ... you can talk for a long time and a lot. Ask if something specific interests
