      Let the number of landings equal the number of take-offs. Good luck, long-distance fights.

    All the news about long-range aviation. The picture was laid out by the Tu-160, and as far as I know, he is a strategist. Or or. As in the cartoon "Koloboks are Conducting Investigation" - either something happened, or one of two. request

          In Russia, strategic aviation is traditionally called long-range.

          The Armed Forces did not have regiments with the name "strategic", but only "distant" or "heavy", which included "strategists". I personally served in the long-range reconnaissance (Tu-95RC) with us at the airfield based long-range anti-submarine (Tu-142). The bombers were part of the "heavy" regiments and divisions, and obeyed the commander of the FAR aviation. So, there is no need to be indignant, and both names are quite correct.

    It’s scary to remember how in Uzin (Ukraine, who doesn’t know), the strategists were cutting, my dad even started to swell, there is no connection with the Far East .. Caviar - no one will deliver fish. Joke.
    Well, now I’m happy for Russia, with a creak, but power is being reborn. And in my opinion it’s concrete.

      very large replenishment

      This is a modernization of the past ... the quantity has not grown, only the quality. New TU-160M2 will be built in Kazan from this year. Then there will be quantitative and qualitative growth.
      In 2020, Russia will begin mass production of the Tu-160М2 "White Swan" strategic bomber. The plans to annually produce 2 – 3 new aircraft, according to Voyennoe.rf.

      The first prototype Tu-160М2 should fly in the 2018 year, and with the 2020 year at the Kazan Aircraft Plant, mass production of these aircraft for the Aerospace Forces will begin with a pace of production of two or three aircraft annually. Along with the production of the Tu-160М2, the modernization of the long-range aircraft in operation, such as the Tu-160, Tu-95MS strategic bombers and the Tu-22М3 long-range bombers, will also continue. All of them are gradually being modernized in order to meet modern requirements.

    And here is what thought visited - TU-160 is a rocket carrier of the 20th century, but in the 20th century a rocket carrier of the 21st century - "SOTKA" was created. Maybe start to produce for the long-range aviation “Sotka”, to solve the tasks of “strategic purpose”?

        But the Myasishchev Design Bureau came out of the bowels of the Tupolev Design Bureau. Myasischev was generally his first deputy.

    What for? “Sotka” is a TU-22M class car in its performance characteristics. She will not pull on the strategist

      Again this "strategist". In the country there is an army, in the army there is Long-range aviation, as part of long-range aviation TU-160 (few), TU-95 (relatively many) and TU-22m (average amount). No other "strategists" are dumb.

          The word is good, but used out of place. S-TRA-TAG. "Tag" - (tags) keywords used by comp. programs. "Tra" - transport, tram, trap - this is all related to traffic. Astra is the same from astronomy, the science of the motion of stars (or towards the stars?). Finally, the Russian letter "C" is the word. That is, STRATEG is the one who knows the keywords for interstellar movements. Either through Portals or on ships. Something like that.

            Lingvun. There is no other definition for you. The word "strategist" comes from Greek. And you are trying to pull yourself up to nothing: 1) computer slang based on English; 2) own invention on the basis of words borrowed again from English into Russian; 3) asters and astronomy are words from the same root from Greek (astro is a star), but what relation do stars have to strategy I am extremely curious; 4) Russian school alphabet. The conclusion is grandiose in its stupidity.
            Was it a bad joke? Or how?

              Anto dear, time will tell ....... The Russian language is not what the Bolsheviks of the Judeo-Masons turned it into. There are no "prefixes", "roots", "endings" in it. Russian is a whole world of images. The beautiful words ANALYTIC is simply a combination of the words ANAL, LICK and TICK. By the way ... GOOD LUCK is from the word "oud", that is, the male genital organ. Ento with Kinders need to know .....

    Try to understand the meaning of this word letter by letter using a method such as "boostrofedon"

    The word "replenished" is not correct, it is misleading. It will be correct that six missile carriers will undergo a deep modernization.

    modernization is certainly good, but an increase of 6 units is much better, even that 22m3
