Russian Doomsday aircraft of the second generation modernize

15
Russian air command posts of the second generation of strategic management, or "Doomsday planes" created on the basis of the IL-80 and IL-82 aircraft, will be upgraded, and experimental design work on this topic has been successfully completed. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Defense Alexei Krivoruchko.


Russian Doomsday aircraft of the second generation modernize


During a visit to the Nizhny Novgorod research and production enterprise Polet, the deputy minister noted that the ROC for modernizing air command posts was completed, following the results of the Russian Aerospace Forces will receive a modernized second generation of aircraft based on IL-80 and IL-82. Currently, there is a refinement of the "stuffing" for the upgraded aircraft. Modernization works will be carried out at the NPP Polet, the lead developer of the onboard communication and control complex.

The second-generation air command post based on the IL-80 is based on the IL-86 liner, and the IL-82 is based on the IL-76 transport. Both aircraft are part of the air control system of the Russian Armed Forces. VKP are intended for work in the conditions of failure of ground control points, nodes and communication lines, a rapidly changing operational environment, as well as in the case of the use of nuclear weapons. It is for this reason that planes of this type are called “Doomsday planes”. There are four cars in total in Russia.

The work on the third generation VKP was announced in 2015 year. The aircraft is being developed on the basis of an improved IL-96-400.

Today, only the United States and Russia are armed with such aircraft.

        But our dearly "beloved" deputies will not have doomsday planes either. There will only be senior executives.

        All of you and I will not have "doomsday planes" ...
        It will not. yes Do you notice how the news began to appear in this thread? Remember the article yesterday?
        US accused Russia of secret nuclear weapons tests
        Now the picture is looming? It will be more interesting further wink Of course, this blasphemously sounds under your picture to the comment. But if you drop emotions. It's not so simple. It's geopolitics .. And it does not have a human face at all.

      Very annoying journalism-
      Russian Strategic Command Air Command Post (CPS) second generation

      Well, what generations then? Just to say, modernization is not fate at all?

    I saw a couple on the basis of IL-86 in 2015 at the airport, the view was terrible, not well-groomed. My heart bleeds. The good news is that these beauties are being tidied up. VPU are necessary for the sustainable management of aircraft.

      You are in vain. He flew on the IL-86, an excellent aircraft, comfortable.

    IL-96 - a great glider! But not the IL-80! Maybe just refine the aerodynamic transition in the area of ​​the keel (rudder?). Upgrade the cockpit and control system. Based on this concept, many interesting projects can be developed both for the aerospace forces (armed forces) and for the civilian sector. As for the engines, the PS-90A is, so far, excellent for internal use.
    But the internal equipment of the command post, I beg your pardon, cannot imagine without "non-Russian" components, including software foundations.

    Well, the one who is supposed to be on board will not be there at the last moment, just like the planes will be in the air before the first "mushrooms" grow on the surface
