PJSC "Tupolev" launched a deep modernization of the Tu-95MS


According to the agency interlocutor, the contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the modernization of the Tu-95MS was concluded one and a half months ago, the decision to upgrade the aircraft to the level of the Tu-95MSM was made based on the results of state tests. Works are carried out at the Taganrog Aviation Plant (Beriev TANTK).

The option of deep modernization to the level of the Tu-95MSM implies the preservation of the airframe and some units that correspond to the basic version of the aircraft. Radio-electronic equipment will be completely replaced in order to expand the weapons used by the aircraft (for use by the X-101 and X-102 rocket carriers). Modernization involves the replacement of engines with turboprop NK-12MPM, as well as the installation of new propellers AB-60T. The Obzor-MS radar will be replaced on the Novella-HB1.021 radar, the Meteor-HM2 airborne defense complex will be installed. There will also be other work, information on which is hidden.

The company "Tupolev" explained that only Tu-95MS-95 will be subjected to deep modernization to the level of Tu-16MSM. Currently, the Russian VKS is armed with 35 aircraft of this modification.

    "Bear" is an image of Russia, and this aircraft will serve for a long time, especially modernized with a new range of weapons, to the fear of our adversaries from NATO and the United States.

        For the "bear" itself, it is not critical. Critical for the nerves of the Canadian and US aviation pilots who accompany him on the approach to the border. They wrote that everything that resonates in the cockpit can rattle.

        What do you consider "high noise"? Even when flying in the area of ​​the airfield with a large box on the first turn, it is no longer audible. On landing, after passing the long-range drive, you can hear.

        The radar sees it even further, four VISHs with a diameter of 5,6 meters, i.e. he has an ERP of more than 100 m2. Therefore, the noise of the screws is not important. So I don’t understand why they won’t put saber-shaped blades on the screw, the range will increase, I think by 10%.

          Well, as you, sofa "designers", everything is simple. Right now he took and planed new blades. And you at least imagine the technology for manufacturing existing propellers - this is a FUCKINGLY COMPLEX technological process (I visited this plant in Stupino), and if you consider that the EDITOR will also have to be altered, it is easier to create a new aircraft.

            Well, if you have been to JSC "SMPP", you probably would have known that the propellers with saber blades for the Tu-95MS were ready for testing back in 1999, but due to the lack of funding, the tests were not carried out and the project gradually stalled. Yes, due to the shift in the critical values ​​of the M number at the tip of the blades towards higher speeds, the flight speed and efficiency will increase, but it is not for nothing that this type of HMG has not yet received wide distribution in the world. Everything is restrained by an order of magnitude greater complexity of manufacturing, no less complexity of non-destructive methods for monitoring the technical condition of such screws in operation and, as a consequence, a small assigned resource. And the old AV-60 has not yet exhausted its capabilities: the AV-60T with widened blades is an example of this. Although this modification will soon hit 20-nickname.

          no need to replace the screw circle with a solid sheet of steel. it is not equivalent EPR and a difference at times.

      I’ve got something wise with the names, I agree.
      Yes, and modernization for a new type of this work can be called a stretch. More correctly, all this can be called bringing the remaining unfinished Tu-95MS fleet to the level of aircraft already subjected to these works. At least I do not see anything new in the list of equipment proposed for installation, nor in rocket weapons, nor in engines with propellers. A modified aircraft have long been flying, even in Syria worked.

    ... only Tu-95SM-95 missile carriers will undergo deep modernization to the level of Tu-16MSM
    The electronic equipment will be completely replaced in order to expand the weapons used by the aircraft (for use by the X-101 and X-102 missile carriers).

      ... My regards san4es ! ... hi ... there were two types of Tu-95MS-6 and TU-95MS-16 ... the difference in what:
      - Tu-95MS-6 - 6 KR, only on the "drum" - 6 X-55 inside the fuselage;
      - Tu-95MS-16 - 16 KR, 6 CR on the "drum" MKU-6-5 / 9A829K2 inside the fuselage and 10 CR X-55 on the "external" AKU-2 / AKU-3;
      ... but this was before the appearance of the X-55CM, after it was so ...
      - 6 KR (Kh-55SM) on MKU-6-5 / 9A829K2 and 8 KR (Kh-55SM) on "external" AKU-2;
      ... As a result, the Tu-95MS-16 carried - 16 missiles of the X-55SM type, so we entered 1991 ... then the X-555 appeared but the essence has not changed ... I think at the moment the Tu-95MS-6 is the structure of the videoconferencing is no longer ...
      ... what I read in the article:
      Quote Article:
      The electronic equipment will be completely replaced in order to expand the weapons used by the aircraft (for use by the X-101 and X-102 missile carriers)
      ... Oops, but it is at least a meter longer than the Kh-555 and heavier by one ton ... so they will do it ?! ... what would be the same 12? ... 8 on the outside and 6 inside ... from this work on the "thrust-to-weight ratio" and probably the size of the inner compartment ... B-52 "peer" sadly smokes around the corner, modernization potential = 0 ... hi

      According to the calculations of Tupolev PJSC, the aircraft resource will be exhausted no earlier than 2040.
      In this regard, the existing fleet of Tu-95MS aircraft is being upgraded to the MSM standard by replacing sighting and navigation equipment for more efficient use of X-101 missiles.

    I’m not catching up with something. What nonsense in the note?
    PJSC "Tupolev" will be engaged in deep modernization of the strategic missile carrier Tu-95MS, reports "Interfax" with reference to the general director of the company Alexander Konyukhov. First Departure Deeply Upgraded missile carrier is scheduled for 2019.

    At the beginning of 2018, according to the Military Balance-2018 reference book, we had 14 TU-95MSM in service. And in a note that the first flight is already in 2019

      Modernization of missile-carrying Tu-95MS started a few years ago. The first aircraft, upgraded to the state of Tu-95MSM, was introduced in the autumn of 2015. After that, several more aircraft of the same type went through the necessary procedures. The exact number of upgraded machines, however, is not yet specified. According to various estimates, about a dozen aircraft have been updated to date.

      It is curious that the upgraded Tu-95MSM are not only used on duty and patrolling, but have already managed to take part in training events and real combat operations. So, since the fall of 2015, Russian long-range aviation has been regularly involved in attacking targets of terrorist organizations in Syria. According to some information, modernized TU-95MS took part in these operations.
