    You can wait. It is better to bring it to mind before delivery to the troops than to supply "semi-finished products" like the Yankes F-35. They gave the allies a pretty party, then announced the need for improvements.

      "Completion of bulletins" directly in the units is a common story in the USSR during operation. Not only new aircraft, but just new equipment. A representative came, re-soldered something, sealed it, if necessary. I made entries in passports or forms; everyone who was supposed to sign - and goodbye. There would only be something to redo. After all, we are eating up the Soviet groundwork, we are already sucking on mosles. There are not many people who made the first entries in the forms of these "carcasses".

        Absolutely ... but here the picture is well .. "not at all oil" ...... the aircraft was transferred to the LIS for .... "verification for compliance ....." and full testing of all aircraft systems wink and ... what happened? ... rolled back to DSP? request
        And this is past the "snout" and the award and .. "orders" ... well, instead of the "festive pump", which was .... received ..... "everything .... as always" request

        There is no AI there and cannot be. One fool in MO said stupidity, and now others are repeating ... This dinosaur lives only because there is nothing else and will not be in the near future ... It's good if they find 30 sides from all the remaining trash for revision, the wing design is too outdated and not resource ... Probably the boxes with the Tu-160 with the "AI" are too big and do not fit into the missile carrier .....

      All my life, all "products" that were already in series were brought to the army soldier
      Even the edition "45-02" (do not take 45-00 and 01) had 3 modifications before becoming a full-fledged combat vehicle. This is 9,5 by 12,5 and 16.
      They started in 1971, and finished as early as 1980, (a year later the first "45-03" arrived).
      Now, count yourself how many cars are ... "years old" ... or is the assigned calendar .. "eternal"?
      This is not yours ... a new MS ... but here. This is the modernized Tu-22M3 manufactured since 1983. soldier

    Radius is good. It is advisable that the circles of our radiuses well cover the Asia-Pacific region from the Far East, all of Scandinavia and Great Britain from the SF bases, and all interesting places (BV and Eastern Europe) from the Crimea.
    This is for their own good, so as not to indulge in matches.

      You are a poet.
      Reminded of a joke.
      "Husband and wife walk in the evening. Most of the young men passing by greet his wife.
      What is that? - the husband asks.
      Don’t worry. These are members of my circle - the wife answers.
      Go the next day together again. Pass by a brothel and confused all also warmly greet, but only with her husband.
      What is that? - the wife asks.
      Don't worry too - these are the mugs of my penis - the husband answers. "
      I apologize for the obscene, but inspired by what I read =).

    Excuse me, what kind of artificial intelligence are they talking about? I didn’t catch the point
    By the way, can they even build at least one new aircraft, or just upgrade and that's it?

      This is bad, very bad. They promised to lift the first "new" Tu-160 into the sky in 2022.

    As usual for our military-industrial complex, the picture is bleak. If in four years they could not cope with the modernization of a single aircraft, then how much time will be needed to modernize thirty. In general, for warfare, not in a local conflict, how many Tu-22M3 are needed in order to carry out the whole range of combat missions. That is the fundamental question of the military construction of capitalist Russia. Even the most advanced types of weapons in single or in dozens of copies will not solve the country's defense tasks and all the more will not create the conditions for successful foreign policy activities. Only large-scale, and even better mass production of modern military equipment will solve these problems. Unfortunately, the economy of modern Russia is not capable of this. I would like to believe that while incapable. Do not think that fools are sitting in the west and will drag Russia into a devastating nuclear conflict. They will find where to use their strength and then the question of not only quality, but also the quantity of modern equipment will be very relevant for our armed forces. The issues of military construction of the Russian armed forces are the mass and the most dangerous to wishful thinking. This is definitely the path to defeat.

      You really don’t understand that modernization starts with one plane. And then. taking into account the achievements, the others are being modernized, how much is necessary?
