How to upgrade the Tu-160М2 bomber

17
The Tu-160 rocket carrier is the flagship of the entire Russian aviation. A supersonic aircraft, which has no equal in the world, has tremendous modernization potential.


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.

    It remains only to modernize the Soviet legacy! Since the scientific institutes hired high-tech production. I envy China soon he will be a monster in technology!

      Here it is not necessary, but. Strategic aircraft - serve for decades and their modernization is a common thing.

      They still have to catch up and catch up.
      By the way - technology is not created in factories. And the same VIAM, for example, has not been canceled yet. And it, oddly enough, works.
      So the Chinese still ... as before China in the knee-elbow yes

          Well, and know yourself further, what to shout?
          By the way, what do you "know" there? How are we doing? Or how are things in China? Or both?
          Simply, as a rule, the one who knows a lot speaks little.
          For you, this is somehow not yet determined ...

      "ALL THEY HAVE PASSED BATTLE BAPTISM IN SYRIA" ...... The good old Tu22m3 in Afghanistan was still baptized, then Tajik-Afghan, 1st Chechen, 2nd, from November to December 99th unofficially in Afghanistan, in 2008. in Georgia, in 2012 - again Chechnya. “Soldier Aircraft” was so dubbed by the Dalniks. But the strategists had a debut, I agree.
