Fully upgraded. The first Tu-22М3М will go to VKS in October

50
New aviation the strike complex - the upgraded Tu-22M3M long-range bomber with the new X-32 supersonic cruise missile - will go to Russian Long-Range Aviation of the Aerospace Forces (VKS) in October, a source at the military-industrial complex said.


Fully upgraded. The first Tu-22М3М will go to VKS in October


According to the existing plan, the first Tu-22М3М with the newest supersonic X-32 long-range cruise missile will take up combat duty as part of long-range aviation in October of this year.
- TASS transmits word source.

According to another source in the military-industrial complex, the Tu-22М3 will not require lengthy tests, as it was taken from long-range combat aircraft to upgrade to a new level.

Only a few flights will be conducted to confirm the declared technical characteristics.
- said the source.

He also said that during the modernization, the aircraft received new avionics, an aim-navigation system and other on-board equipment.

Aircraft remotorizovan - installed NK-25 with full resource
- added a source.

In November 2017 of the year, it was reported that the new aircraft will receive a modern high-precision weaponand the complex of on-board radio equipment Tu-22М3М will be absolutely new and unified with Tu-160М2.

Recall that at the end of April, 2018, at the Kazan Aviation Plant, was informed that in August it was planned to fly a supersonic bomber-missile carrier Tu-22М3М, reports Vzglyad.

    X-32 and “Dagger” now it’s clear how the fleet of non-partners will be restrained.
    Will they refuel in the air? Then there will be an amazing plane.

              Due to the postponement of the creation of the PAK DA, the GPV-2027 included a program for the restoration of a modified form of serial production of Tu-22M long-range bombers (known in the West as Backfire), which should support the potential of Russian long-range aviation for the next 20-25 years. The resumption of aircraft production is planned at the Kazan Aviation Plant PJSC Tupolev, which has actually become a long-range aviation division of the Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC). Thus, this will be the second program to restore the production of Soviet-designed bombers at the Kazan Aviation Plant after the recently adopted program to restore the production of Tu-160 strategic bombers in the Tu-160M2 version there.

          A very interesting question about the meaning ... Dear forum users, I made a quick comparison of the SU-34 with the TU-22M3, and I want to say that the last one completely sucks ... It’s 2 times larger in size, its payload and radius are less than 1,5 , 4, carries more than 22 times the fuel ... At the same time it is completely inferior in all flight characteristics ... They will tell me that the TU-3M34M is better, but it must be compared with the SU-100M .... ??? A preliminary analysis shows that this modernization is erroneous and unpromising, that it is better to launch 34 SU-32 for the money .... The X-34 missile can be slightly reduced and the SU-34 will carry it ..... anyway, it’s completely redone and you can change the dimensions ... But the new SU-7s will fly not 30 years, but more than 3 years and there will be more than 34 times .... But if new engines are installed on the SU-XNUMXM, then the advantages in radius and combat load will disappear ... In addition, the image intensifier is ten times smaller and the modernization potential and resource are vastly greater ....

            In the Russian Federation, there are not enough carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic and the Kyrgyz Republic with nuclear warheads ... The restoration of the Tu-160 production will not make up for it (the Tu-95 has waned), and the Tu-22M3 is held up to the strategist specially the X-50s under his bomb bay ... They don’t do them again ... they are on conservation ...

              The decision to upgrade the TU-22M3 is a mistake; nobody needs it. This modernization for a maximum of 10 years and for cancellation, the wing with variable sweep will not sustain the resource, 30 cars will not be found yet ... Instead, it is better to produce 3 times more SU-34s, new ones that will fly more than 30 years, and they can carry both KP and KP with YaBCh ... Su-34s need to be produced not 12-14 cars a year, but 3 times more, and get 300 or more cars for the total number ....

                Why at 10? They calmly fly away for 50 years ... as for the Su-34, then I generally support the unification of the entire Su-34/30/35 line ... We need to make a 2-seater version of the Su-35S (as the newest version of the T-10) and produce instead of 30 and 34ki ... and despite the fact that we will have light versions of the CR for such machines, they will completely replace the Tu-22.

            From the point of view of the sofa designer, this can be “slightly reduced” by the rocket so that it also retains its characteristics. How will the Su-34 carry a "slightly reduced" rocket of this class? You size then look at it.

                The new Russian X-50 cruise missile will be able to hit targets at ranges of up to 1,5 kilometers, according to an article by Peter Butovsky for Jane's Missiles & Rockets. The full text of the note is given by the bmpd military blog, published under the auspices of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies.

                The X-50 production is planned to be deployed as part of the new Russian state arms program, which is expected to be signed by President Vladimir Putin in the near future. The product is a subsonic cruise missile using the X-101 strategic missile guidance system. Unlike the X-101, the X-50 has a smaller glider.

            MOSCOW, November 17. / TASS /. The designers completed the development of documentation for the modified version of the Tu-22M3 bomber - Tu-22M3M, the first deep modernization of aircraft in service will begin in 2018. The Tu-22M3M will receive modern high-precision weapons, its electronic equipment and engines will be the same as those of the latest Tu-160M2, a source in the Russian military-industrial complex told TASS.

            "The documentation has been completed for Tu-22M3M; preparations are underway at the Kazan Aviation Plant for the repair and modernization of bombers located in combat units of the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation. The first deep modernization of these aircraft from the time of their creation will begin next year," the source said. agencies.

            He noted that "the Tu-22M3M avionics system will be completely new and unified with the Tu-160M2." "This applies to all avionics, including the navigation and sighting system," the source said, emphasizing that after modernization the Tu-22M3M will be able to use "modern long-range high-precision weapons."

            The power plant, according to him, will be Tu-22М3М identical to Tu-160М2 (new engines НК-32-02 of Samara Kuznetsov PJSC).

            The source noted that the terms of modernization and the number of updated aircraft depend on "the capabilities of the plant, on how the work on the first machines will go."

            TASS does not have official confirmation of this information.

            Modernization of 30 aircraft
            Earlier it was reported that up to the level of Tu-22М3М 30 airplanes will be upgraded, which will accommodate the new on-board equipment complex SVP-24-22, HB-45 radar, will improve cabin ergonomics, install new on-board systems, extend the life of the airframe to 35 years. The aircraft can carry precision non-nuclear weapons, including the X-32 cruise missile with a range of up to 600 km.

            The long-range supersonic bomber bomber Tu-22М3 is a deep modification of the Tu-22 aircraft. Developed by the Tupolev Design Bureau in the middle of 1970's, made the first flight of 20 on June 1977 of the year, was adopted in 1989. Maximum speed - 2000 km / h, ceiling - 13,3 thousands of meters, combat load - up to 24 tons (X-22 and X-15 missiles, bombs, sea mines).

            The creation of the PAK DA was postponed for the new version of the Tu-22
            April 2, 2018 Source
            Tu-22
            The program for creating a promising Russian strategic bomber was significantly delayed in terms of time and reduced in terms of funding, but by 2021 a new version of the Tu-22M could take off, it follows from the adopted state armament program for 2018–2027.

            The construction and start of testing the first prototypes of a bomber (Promising Long-Range Aviation Complex, PAK YES) has been postponed to approximately 2030, the bmpd blog reports with reference to the French magazine Aéronautique Militaire.

            This is due to the timing of the creation of a promising Product 80 engine for PAK DA in the thrust class of 25 tons, which still remains at the preliminary stage, as well as the need to solve a number of problems to make the aircraft inconspicuous.

            Meanwhile, the state armament program (GPV-2027) included a program for the restoration of a modified form of serial production of Tu-22M long-range bombers; they are supposed to support the potential of Russian long-range aviation for the next 20-25 years.

            They plan to resume production of planes at the Kazan Aviation Plant of PJSC Tupolev, which in fact has become a long-range aviation division of the Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).



            This will be the second program to restore the production of Soviet-designed bombers at the Kazan Aviation Plant after the recently adopted program to restore the production of Tu-160 strategic bombers in the Tu-160M2 version there.

            The study of the possibility of modifying the Tu-22M was started in accordance with the current GPV adopted in 2010 for 2011-2020 (NIR Magnitka).

            The inclusion of this program in the current GPV-2027 was actively supported by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who, according to a source in the Russian aviation industry, "loves everything Soviet."

            The approval of the program was also facilitated by the active use of Tu-22M3 aircraft in the Russian military campaign in Syria.

            In PJSC “Tupolev”, the project of radical modernization of the Tu-22М is designated as “Product 345” (the “45-30” index is also used), and therefore the aircraft can receive the official Tu-345 index (the “145” code had the original aircraft Tu-22M, the “245” cipher was used in 1990-ies to create the previous modified version remaining on paper with the Tu-22М5 index).

            It is noted that when creating a new version, they will actively use the developments of the Tu-22М3М project for upgrading Tu-22М3 aeronautical aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Force (according to the new GWP, financing for the modernization of Tu-22М3М 36 drill machines).

            The 345 should retain the Tu-22М3 bomber glider, but instead of the NK-25 engines it will be equipped with two NK-32 engines of the 02 series. Production of these engines is now being restored at PJSC Kuznetsov in Samara to remotorize the current Tu-160 bombers and equip the Tu-160М2 bomber with new construction.



            The NK-32 engine of the 02 series has a thrust similar to the NK-25 (about 25 tons in afterburner), however, it has a large resource and is more economical. The replacement of the NK-22 engines with the NK-3 with the Tu-25M32 was considered in the 1980s, and the prototype Tu-22M4 aircraft, on which the installation of the NK-32 engines was planned, made its first flight back in 1990.

            It is known that the aircraft "345" will have a crew of two people and will be nominally equipped with a retractable rod for refueling in the air.

            The possibility of using conformal fuel tanks on top of the airframe is being considered, which, combined with more economical NK-32 engines, will significantly increase the range of the aircraft, bringing it in the distillation version supposedly to 9-10 thousand kilometers.


            Supposedly, 345 will receive onboard electronic equipment similar to the upgraded Tu-160М2 aircraft.

            The armament will include cruise missiles of both available types (X-55 / X-555, X-101 / X-102, X-32), as well as the promising missile systems "Dagger", GZUR and X-50, as well as a wide range guided and unguided aerial bombs.

            In addition, the aircraft will be a carrier of nuclear weapons, including a strategic range, and the volume of the bomb bay will probably be increased.

            Also, the aircraft will have to receive a promising data transmission system that will allow the use of missile and high-precision bomb weapons, receiving accurate target designation in real time, including from portable ground and sea terminals.

            At the moment, at the Kazan Aviation Plant there are at least four unfinished canned glider Tu-22M3 aircraft, which will be used for the construction of prototypes and pre-production samples of the restored bomber.

            So, the first prototype “345” can be lifted into the air already in 2021. Serial production can be organized in Kazan from 2026-2027 at a pace of up to three to four aircraft per year.

            It is noted that this Tu-22M production restoration program reflects general trends in the Russian aviation industry, which is more and more inclined to “revitalize” the production of Soviet-designed aircraft (or their deep modernizations) instead of creating fundamentally new platforms.

It’s very interesting: can the SU-34 pull these missiles .... And in general, this is the only car, instead of all strategic antiques .....

                I quoted you from the press. If I were an employee of the Tupolev Design Bureau or a specialized Vice Premier, I would have my opinion on this matter. But I wouldn’t tell you about it.

                  I seem to be asking a specific question, and you quote me that does not apply to him in any way.

                  It is known that the aircraft "345" will have a crew of two people and will be nominally equipped with a retractable rod for refueling in the air.

                  This is not a link to official sources, but simply a quote from whose source and where taken.

              You and I can also be considered “open sources” and upload our wildest fantasies on the networks. And then all sorts of bloggers will refer to us. The main thing is that OFFICIAL sources say nothing about this.

      X-32 and "Dagger" Now it’s clear how the fleet of under-partners will be restrained

      and the upgraded x-22 (1000km can carry a poison charge)
      but it would be better to build your own fleet .... Gorshkov’s series of 25 pieces + to modernize the BOD for PLO-PVO + to modernize all submarines - barracuda (4 pieces) ... oh dreams, dreams ....

        For such a number of ships it is necessary for the people to fold. Although I would be able to throw off a salary on an aircraft carrier, of course, if the money is not stolen.

          I would also have thrown myself off if I had been explained to me popularly and clearly why we needed it. Whom should we conquer? For me, it’s better to build several destroyers with anti-ship missiles and Gauges instead.

    Fully Upgraded

    But not completely modernized (and are there such?), Is it considered an imperfection or will it do so?

    Will they refuel in the air? Then there will be an amazing plane.

    If you believe the sources, and one of them is the editor-in-chief of the magazine Arsenal of the Fatherland Viktor Murakhovsky, then YES:
    “The START-2 treaty is not valid now, and we are free to act in relation to the Tu-22M3 as we see fit. The current treaty is START-3. There is nothing said about this. The agreement defines the number of carriers and the number of nuclear warheads. The credit system is this: one long-range bomber counts as one carrier and one nuclear warhead. ”

    And another visual difference will be the cleaned fodder cannon mount. Together, a radio-electronic and optical-electronic suppression station will be installed.

    The plans were announced: Until 2020, KAZ workshops will upgrade to 30 Tu-22M3 aircraft, turning into excellent M3Ms at the exit. I personally only annoy BEFORE 30, without indicating the exact number. I will hope for 29)))))))

    hiAccording to unconfirmed reports, the first launches of X-32 missiles from the Tu-22M3 carrier took place in the 2000s, and in recent history, tests have been conducted since 2010 (source).
    As of spring 2012, it is expected that the Kh-32 missiles will go into service with Long-Range Aviation by 2020 (source - Kramnik I. Krylatye ..).
    The design of the rocket - the rocket is made according to the normal aerodynamic scheme, completely similar to the prototype - KR X-22 - AS-4
    Control and guidance system - presumably, the missile is equipped with an inertial control system using correction channels from an active radar seeker or from a correction system for digital terrain maps in correction areas (extreme navigation).
    Engine - dual-chamber dual-mode rocket engine
    TTX missiles:
    Length - 11,65 m
    Wingspan - 3 m
    Height:
    - with folded keel - 1,81 m
    - with keel released - 2,44 m
    The diameter of the fuselage - 0.92 m
    Weight - 5780 kg
    Range:
    - 600-1000 km (estimate)
    - 800-1000 km (source - Kramnik I. Winged ...)
    Maximum speed:
    - approx. 4000 km / h (source - Kramnik I. Winged ...)
    - 5400 km / h (source)
    Starting height - 1000-13000 m
    Flight altitude - up to 40 km (source)
    Type warhead - on a missile, which is planned to be adopted for armament, the warhead TK-56 ("block 56") - (source).
    Modifications:
    - The Kh-32/9-A-2362 missile is the base model with the TK-56 warhead.
    Carriers:
    - Tu-22M3 - BACKFIRE-C - 1-2 missiles under the wings and 1 missile under the fuselage.
    - Tu-22M3M / product 45-03M - BACKFIRE-E - On March 27, 2008, the Raduga GosMKB concluded a contract No. 83042 for conducting the Sonet design and experimental development team on testing prototypes of 25.11.2011-A-9 missiles with warhead TK-2362 on a carrier Tu-56M22M / 3-45M.

    Good news. We need such aircraft.
    If you put a refueling rod, then in general
    Great for long distance work.
