The updated Tu-160М2, which is established in Kazan, will surpass its predecessor in a number of indicators. New power plants, modern avionics, perfect aiming and navigation complex, as well as a new line of weapons will make an already formidable machine even more dangerous.
According to experts, the combat effectiveness of the aircraft should grow 2,5 times. It is planned that the new modification of the aircraft will receive a specially designed long-range cruise missile.
In addition to the flagship, upgrading are the strategic missile-carrying bombers Tu-95MS and long-range supersonic Tu-22М3. All of these machines were baptized in Syria.
