The combat effectiveness of the Tu-160М2 will increase 2,5 times

36
The effectiveness of the updated strategic bomber Tu-160M2, which they are preparing to release in the Russian Federation, will be 2,5 times higher than that of its predecessor Tu-160. This was in an interview with the newspaper "Red Star" the commander of the Far aviation Lieutenant General Sergey Kobylash.


The combat effectiveness of the Tu-160М2 will increase 2,5 times


We expect an increase in the combat effectiveness of the aircraft by more than 2,5 times
- He said, speaking of the Tu-160М2. Kobylash recalled that in November, the Kazan Aviation Plant demonstrated the aircraft, which became the first prototype of the Tu-160М2 version produced in the framework of the reproduction program of a strategic bomber.

At present, the aircraft has been transferred to the flight test station of the plant to test the operation of new systems of on-board electronic and navigation equipment and the development of engines with improved characteristics. The first flight of the Tu-160М2 is scheduled for early next year.
- the commander said.

According to him, the introduction of new digital technologies will allow "to significantly increase the combat capabilities of the strike complex using high-precision weapons long range. "

Economical engines with broader resource capabilities will increase the flight range, which, together with the declared power supply, will keep the strategic missile carrier Tu-160 among the strategic strike systems
- stressed Kobylash.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that the serial production of the Tu-160М2 should begin in the 2023 year. At the same time, VKS Russia plans to acquire at least 50 of such machines.

        to be honest, the plane was assembled from the backlog of components left over from the USSR, Bow, to those who kept them. hi

      Why the more? Here and 50 above the roof. I very much doubt that there will be 50 pieces ... why? During the union, 4 sides a year were produced in the best of times! Despite the fact that the price was about 200-250 million rubles! Overboard. And in our conditions, it’s good if they take two sides each year. And the price of the new Swans will be about the same, only in dollars, that is, $ 250 million per side. That's what we think. Well, if we go out on 30 boards for 15 years. And this will be normal. And there you look and PAK YES give birth.

    Serial release in 2023. And will there be enough time for the machine to be completely ready for hostilities, without incidents (breakdowns, equipment failure), etc.?

    it was always interesting what numbers are based on 2,5 times? at least some parameters indicated ... otherwise you can just as well 10 times or vice versa in 1,5 times to tell.

    And if it does not grow? Who will answer for the "bazaar"?
    And in general, the news should read like this: "The combat effectiveness of the Tu-160M2 increased 2,5 times "

    For projecting strength is a good machine. In the event of a global conflict, their combat value depends on many “buts.” The aircraft requires good runways, a lot of equipment and a long time to prepare for departure. In other words, if there is no constant duty in the air of flight shifts, already with a combat load, then at least on the ground, fully loaded and refueled, with engines warmed up from an external source, to take off within 5 minutes (flight time of missiles in case of deployment of assets defeats of "instant global strike").

    Combat effectiveness - a generalized concept that characterizes the degree of fitness of a combat weapon to fulfillment of combat missions


    shots (starts) in the set. time; mate. anticipation of the affected area or the number of targets hit; required military outfit (number). equipment, ammunition and time needed. to hit a target or fulfill certain tasks to ensure the actions of troops.

    Those. TU-160 M2 will be:
    - hit more in 2,5 objects (or squares)
    or
    - hit xnumx times faster
    or
    -to hit the same objects at the same time as the Tu-160, but TWO, 5 times with less striking means?

    what
    It looks like we and Lieutenant-General Sergey Kobylash, commander of Long-Range Aviation, received a military ticket in various defense ministries.
    Although I think this is a PR journalist (for the sake of an article)

      If by the year 23rd our Swans would have bought 50 Swans, we could completely forget about the fleet and land explorers, etc. Our defense aircraft industry will not be able to produce these aircraft in a large batch a year. In the USSR, 4 sides were purchased, and this was normal. In our position, God forbid, two sides will take the VKS.

            the next question will be: did you serve as deputy minister of defense? And in the submarine fleet or the Strategic Missile Forces served? !!! It’s just that there are no especially active divisional commanders, let alone Shoigu’s deputies). But the fact that it is an expensive and capricious product for nuclear deterrence is so accurate. It is not for nothing that the Americans hardly use such weapons in local military conflicts. And this very supersonic for overcoming air defense is a complete anachronism and this large target bird cannot be missed. It is interesting to shoot calibers from the Caspian Sea or fly to Syria on the Tu-160, which is easier and less cost, given the cost of creating and maintaining long-range aviation?

              Americans very intensively apply their YES in all conflicts. This is Yugoslavia and Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya. I am silent for Korea and Vietnam. It’s just that in modern conflicts they use them exclusively for delivering WTO strikes. Somehow in the class we were shown a photo with the results of B2 strikes at the airfield in Libya. I admit I was envious and not only me. Navigators so generally boiling water ss ... whether. One B2 neatly unfastened 6 caponiers, the second also worked jewelryly along the runway. Comparing with our work in Georgia in 2008 when the 4th one somehow loosened the strip, it becomes sad. It’s good that Hephaestus has now established that in SARatov the results are often 000000 (who knows, he will understand). So in vain you slander Americans, they use everything very successfully (well, when they need it, of course, and if you don’t need it, you can pull it into an excavator or a hospital, it’s an exceptional nation, oh how)

                so read how much the miracle B-2 costs. The development of 44 billion, 21 pieces were produced, each of 2.1 billion. How much does it cost to maintain for 30 years, to train personnel, repair and upgrade? my imagination is not enough. And how much does one ax cost? They wrote once 1mln of the same greenery, okay 2-3, I don’t know for what year prices and what do we have in the end? So the shots struck me when the axes split the air base in Syria and Badiuk, which is difficult to suspect in love for amers, showed the result of the work of the axes. Hit exactly in the center of the concrete hopper and burned 23rd to molten metal in the hopper.

                The fragile little ship from the Caspian was fired by Caliber and, possibly, with the same or similar effect. This is how many axes can be made from one B-2? It seems like 1000 ... and how much it costs to store them, a ride 1000-2000km from the target and all the caponiers become unnecessary

          I’ll explain ... there is an agreement on the INF Treaty .... under this agreement it is impossible to have terrestrial missiles. Therefore, they are now building a bunch of small boats with missiles on board and reviving the plane. In the event of a conflict, you can gasp for likely friends with a filling from any warhead. And the contract is valid, and the missiles are in stock. But potential friends, in case of such a desire, will have to fit their fleet to Russia or planes. And they will immediately spot it .... Very convenient for us.

            But there is talk about new CDs for the Iskander ... Apparently, this is already perceived as a violation of the INF Treaty. So the launchers for the SM-3 can also quickly become launchers for the nuclear Tomahawks :) Why then do we need such aircraft? The very SM-3, fired from any floating shnyaga, will bring it down easily.

    Sorry with a deep deflection, but there are a few questions:
    1. What was measured this most increased combat effectiveness (kilometers, colograms, kilotons)?
    2. according to what methodology and who evaluated?
    As far as I know, the model of weapons and military equipment is estimated by a value called the combat potential. And the methods for such an assessment are different. And very controversial. Therefore, you can write 10 times ... There will be no error. Simply, the criterion that needs to be evaluated must be correctly selected.

    What backlog of components is there? Modern electronic warfare, the latest digital stuffing, airframe details, new weapons?

    *** The task is to create about half a million drawings in 3D format in modern programs, complete the design and prepare them for industrial production. This will help to dramatically accelerate the production of components and assemblies of the "strategist" at modern machine-tool processing centers. ***

    Do you really assume that they will assemble such an aircraft from some 25-30 year old components?

    The main thing is not the plane, but what missiles it carries! That’s it. The launch range of strategic lionfish is not comparable with the range of air defense missiles, so there’s nothing to fear from the aircraft. Consequently, all this modernization is show off :)
