The Russian Ministry of Defense has received another long-range Tu-22М3 long-range bomber that has undergone major repairs. The plane has passed all the required tests and has already set off for the airfield deployment. This was reported by the Tupolev press service.


Russian Aerospace Forces received another Tu-22М3 after overhaul


According to the press service, another Tu-22М3 long-range bomber was overhauled at the Kazan Aviation Plant, after which it successfully passed all ground and flight tests at the flight test station. The plane was accepted by the commission, after takeoff made a traditional flight over the enterprise and went to the place of permanent deployment.

PJSC "Tupolev", part of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), announces the transfer to operation of the Far aviation Russian Aerospace Forces next Tu-22M3 missile-bomber after overhaul

- said the press service.

Tu-22М3 - a long-range supersonic missile-bomber with variable wing geometry, the modification was adopted in the 1989 year. Designed to engage sea and ground targets at a distance of up to 2200 km from airfields based on guided missiles and aerial bombs.

It was previously reported that the first prototype of the deeply modernized long-range Tu-22М3М long-range bomber is undergoing factory flight tests, and by the end of the year the second one will join it. State trials jointly with the Ministry of Defense are planned for the third quarter of next year. A contract is also being prepared with the military department for the modernization of the entire fleet of Tu-22М3 combat aircraft to the level of Tu-22М3М, during which the aircraft will receive new avionics, an aiming and navigation system, and other avionics. The new version of the aircraft can carry X-32 cruise missiles and hypersonic missiles.

    I went to our airport on an aviation day. I was hit by the Tu-95. It felt like a killing machine. All other exhibits faded in comparison with it. Another hit MiG-25. I don’t know what is behind the gas pump. It seems to me that there is simply a pipe from the fuel tank to the engine. The big pipe. Judging by the nozzle

      There is no gas pump there, just as there is no gas. Stand there fuel low and high pressure pumps.

        By the way, I wanted to ask. I'm kind of more confident in you. Already met in "battles". Why was the "Okhotnik" attached to the winged Su-30? Are the speeds comparable?
        I hope the third ban for the flood does not slap. But it’s interesting

            The answer was obvious. Apparently I'm out of date. After all, an operator is needed

          Most likely, we can say that the Su-30 for the "Okhotnik" will not be the leading one, in the full sense of the word, but a control and guidance aircraft of the AWACS type. IMHO.

            In this case, the Su-30 will use the "Okhotnik" for its target designation and conduct long-range combat without revealing itself .... This is where it needs a long-range explosive missile ... It's time to think about it and, when upgrading, provide for the possibility of installing this missile on board. ... And also the Su-30 can be a retranslator and cover for a hunter if necessary ... This is an example of a Combat Information Link and is very effective ...

            And there is something in our industry with one large nozzle. There were at least two air intakes there. I don’t understand the engines. Wife only repair a car sometimes. Well, mostly on electrics. There was one nozzle. True, this is an airport-based museum. I saw the only instance in the world of a Czech plane (I would have made one myself, give me the blueprints. By the way, there were not rivets there, but welding). In general, there were impressions.

              The last thing that comes to mind is the MiG-23/27. There are two air intakes, but one nozzle. We have withdrawn from service.

            I’ve interrogated my wife now. Yes, two. Damn, that's why I saw one. Behind the fence. He walked with them and told them. There is such a plane, and there is another. What a shame on a gray head. By the way, I'm not old. So the truth is, many probably say. But turned gray strongly

    Aircraft Carrier Assassin! "Dagger" under their ribs!

    Viktor Bondarev, Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security, ex-commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces, said earlier that it was foolish not to use the huge modernization potential laid down 30 years ago in Tu22M3. "To maintain leadership in long-range aviation, you don't need to invent something fundamentally new; you just need to upgrade these bombers to a new version," Bondarev said.

    Correctly! Why create new equipment - this requires institutions, design bureaus, factories, personnel, bright heads, and a designer. And most importantly, state thinking.
    You can take Soviet, obsolete morally and physically machines, and repair them. But nobody canceled the laws of physics and nature. The old aircraft will remain the old aircraft. You can continue shouting "Urya!"

      The states will be richer because they print currency themselves, but they do not shy away from repairing B-52s, which are 70 years old, up to the expense of removing parts and assemblies from other aircraft. Even the decommissioned A-10 "Warthogs" attack aircraft were returned to the troops.

        This "carcass" for most of its performance characteristics is still very good, after modernization it will become even better. In addition, it occupies a very convenient place between the Tu - 160 and the front - line bombers of the Su - 24, 34. So, let it fly, since the fuselage is made of alloys - it does not rust, so it can serve for another 20 - 30 years.

      A new long-range bomber is being created. After 2-3 years, he must make the first flight. Until it is brought to mind, until mass construction begins and at least some acceptable amount is produced, it will take 20 to 30 years. Until now, the modernized Tu-22M3M will serve. It is clear that the work had to be started earlier, but we have what we have request

      You can continue to shout - "Everything is gone!", Fans of stomping their feet and banging their fists on the keyboard - give you everything urgently here and now by wave of a magic wand. Hottabyches and Goldfish do not exist in nature. Until the new aircraft reaches the series, do you offer to hand over the old ones for scrap? They still have enough resources and potential for modernization. negative

    In the USSR, if I am not mistaken for one AUG, two Tu-16 (Tu-22) regiments were required to ensure a massive salvo guaranteeing a breakthrough in an air defense order. In single copies, only with barmales in Syria can be pondered by analogy with the Americans, who send jihad mobile F22 or 35 to chase.

      You mixed everything in a heap. The tactics of using the Tu-16 and Tu-22M3 are fundamentally different. The Tu-22M3 is armed with three, as it is now fashionable to say, hypersonic anti-ship missiles with a range of up to 1000 km.

    The production of engines for the Tu-22M3 was curtailed back in the 90s. Resume their production is not planned. Those. continued use of the Soviet reserve. A plane with such characteristics is outdated. Neither the army nor the navy needs it. But so far there is nothing to replace it with, so the old models are supported in flight readiness, collecting one of two ..

    Well, yes, and for modernization, none of this is necessary. No institutions, no design bureaus, no factories, no personnel. Catch a few dozen homeless people, they promised them a bottle of battalion a day and they will carry out any modernization. So what?
    What is wrong with an old aircraft if it performs its functions at 100? Or does thin require the creation of something fundamentally new? All countries of the world are modernizing old equipment and do not consider anything to be flawed ...
