In Kazan at the Aviation Plant named after SP. Gorbunov held the rollout ceremony of the first prototype of the strategic bomber Tu-160 "White Swan". The head of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov took part in the ceremony.


Rolling out of the first Tu-160, built after the resumption of their production, took place in Kazan


The sample was built on the basis of the technological reserve available at the plant. It was also completed for solving the tasks of reproducing the Tu-160 in a new look: restoring the final assembly technology, checking certain technological solutions, and working out new aircraft engines with improved characteristics. Ship departure scheduled for February 2018
- explained in the press service of the plant.

The updated Tu-160М2 was the first prototype after the resumption of production. The departure of the supersonic strategic bomber is scheduled for February 2018. It was completed after the restoration of the final assembly technology, the testing of individual new technological solutions, the testing of new aircraft engines with improved characteristics.

Tu-160 "White Swan" was developed by the Tupolev Design Bureau in 1970-1980's. Since 1987, he is in service. At the moment, "White Swan" is the largest and most powerful in stories military aviation supersonic aircraft with variable wing geometry. In 2008, its production was discontinued, and in 2015 it was decided to resume production of the Tu-160 in a modernized version, reports TASS

        ..objectively - when it was first shown streaky in the distant seemingly '90, they simply went crazy: a plane, not even as advanced in the rab as the B-1b, simply “flashes” norad - it is unrealistic to intercept. A huge interview was in flight international, I got into such an abstract - they put the top five and selected the work: there was no information about the Tu-160 in the secret library winked

    This event clearly shows in what era we are at the level of technical development. The end of the 70's. The 2018 year is about to begin in the world. And we have the end of 70's. The lag is about 40 years.

      Are you seriously? This aircraft with an updated avionics and armament will be operational for another 50. No one has done better than an airplane. Even the United States with its B1 only came close to the characteristics of this aircraft.

        I'm serious. Enough to redo and finish the creation of the fathers, it is necessary to create something of their own. Good plane? Yes, but can it be even better to make a completely new one that will serve not 50 but 100 years? Which will create the conditions for a qualitative leap into the future. The new avionics is part of the story. No one suggests updating the avionics on the IL-2 and launching it in a series on the basis that it is a great aircraft.

          So PAK YES saw same. New? New! They also promise that it will replace all three types of long-range / strategists with us. Let's see what they roll out, I hope to live to these times.
          Nobody suggests updating avionics on the Il-Xnumx and launching it in a series

          Why not? A better IL-10! On the basis of modern technologies, he will shut up these toucans for the part of the assault for the belt and crank him twice.

            Why not? A better IL-10!

            I was so taught at the university that there should be no internal competition between generations of technology. If you took up PAK YES do not waste money on the resumption of production of the Tu-160. Because this diversion of resources will delay the creation of PAK YES. The TU-160 already built, without a doubt, must be pulled up to the M2 level, change avionics, renew resources, and refine. And Tu-95, and Tu-22M. But in the matter of creating new airplanes it is better to throw all our forces into PAK YES, even if we don’t get a few new Tu-160s, but we’ll bring the launch date to the PAK YES series for a couple of years. Well, this is my opinion, you can disagree with him.

              Look at China.

              Why look at him? They can make a glider with their resources, but the engines could not even copy. This is for fighter jets. And what about the strategists - they are still dubbing a copy of our Tu-16. Not to say that it’s bad, they even licked this project to shine. But nothing new to see.
              Threat. Their new J20 fighter is generally a weird design. As if sewn from different planes.
              If you took up PAK YES do not waste money on the resumption of production of the Tu-160

              And here I am of a different opinion. PACK YES to wait for 5-7 for the most optimistic estimates. This is before rolling out .. and then another test. During this time, new avionics and weapons will be rolled in on new Tu-160. And the technologies for creating such machines will be rolled in - a lot has been lost. In addition, PAK YES subsonic. Whatever they promise, having a supersonic car will not be superfluous.
              And one more thing: what if the completion of the PAK YES is delayed? The Tu-95 old people, although modernized, the Tu-22M3 is also not new, and not a strategist. And this is aviation of the nuclear triad - purely to guarantee the preservation of the components of the 50 Tu-160M will come in handy.

      The swan has such a perfect glider that it’s better not to come up with another 30 years, and it’s not necessary.
      But the fact that there are new engines and avionics you cannot understand with your body instead of the brain ...
      I don’t give a shit that half of the airframe in zagashniks has been lying for 7 years, but the fact that there are still hands and heads that can put it together means 99% success. So they will repeat as many times as necessary.

      Glider Tu-160 will be relevant for another decade. Neither the United States nor China (with its copies of the ancient Tu-16) has anything like this. They will update the filling, put new engines and forward. Together with the Tu-95 and Tu-22, they are quite a worthy adversary for the American B-1B and the antediluvian B-52s (which, by the way, were completed even before the start of the Vietnam War).

    The first modernized version of the Tu-160 White Swan strategic bomber, the Tu-160М2, should take to the air in 2018.

    Judging by the text, they never restored the stove. Just finished out of the finished. Screwdriver assembly from Soviet parts.
    And do not roll on Serdyukov. He performed the task at the highest level. Another thing is that the task is very unsightly.

    This handsome man is still made from that reserve of parts that has remained from the USSR. In fact, this is not manufacture, but assembly. That's when the complete production "from and to" will be mastered at KAZ, then we will rejoice.

      The NK 32 engines on it are new, and everything else, with the exception of the airframe, too - everything has been re-created.

        Well, a glider is just the main thing in building a new plane. And the stuffing of the “oldies” is now changing just like that.

      the eye is made of that reserve of parts that has remained from the USSR.

      So, it is necessary to restore the USSR.

    .... The sample was built on the basis of the technological reserve available at the plant. It was completed, including to solve the problems of reproduction of the Tu-160 in a new look .... Sad article however. Report URA URA and actually zilch. For all the years they haven’t come up with a fig themselves and haven’t produced the main thing. They collected from the spare parts and reported. This is not a reproach to hard workers and technicians. These are bosses reporting.

    It seems to me alone that the shape of the nose fairing is a bit different from the rest of the existing Tu-160s? In previous cars, the fairing seems to be slightly flattened from above, and this one has an almost regular cone ...

      But so far ONE. And when the Kazan plant will be able to restore production "from and to", and not from old Soviet stocks - it is difficult to say.

    Spent, renewed production,

    About the RESTORATION (resumption) of production is too early to say. Building a glider is the main stage of production. And in this case, the old finished glider just stuffed with equipment.

      To say that we need to restore a lot, it means not to say anything ... a lot of things were destroyed under the joyful hooting of the West ... the homegrown reformers at the head of the tagged and alkanauts ruined it !!!
      And in the West they are also wondering why people hate the tagged and the drunk-merry fellow !!!
