Russian long-range aviation will be replenished with six modernized Tu-95MS


This year in the distant Aviation Six improved Tu-95MS missile carriers will arrive. Aircraft are equipped with new electronic warfare systems and avionics.


This was reported today in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. The department quotes the commander of long-range aviation of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant General Sergey Kobylash. He said that new aircraft installed improved avionics, a modern avionics and other equipment that is designed to modernize this strategic missile carrier. All this will allow, according to Sergei Kobylash, several times to improve the accuracy of the hit bombs, cruise and guided missiles.

Last year, the Russian military received five such strategic missile carriers. In 2019, Russian long-range aviation completed the plan for combat training one hundred percent.

These works on deep modernization of strategic missile carriers are carried out under a contract between the Tupolev Design Bureau and the Russian Ministry of Defense, concluded in 2018.

Tu-95MS aircraft are part of the nuclear triad of Russia, representing its aerial component. They are intended for delivering powerful and high-precision strikes against particularly important targets in the enemy’s deep rear in the continental theater of war, as well as for hitting remote targets.

    Immortal plane!
    Only DC-3 flies longer.
    Well, the B-52. Where without him?
    But our TU-95MS will seem to be younger. It is MS!
    Last in the year 78 did, sort of.

      Not really ...
      In the late 70s, the Tu-95 MS aircraft was built, the basis for the creation of which was the anti-submarine Tu-142M. (That's amazing) 1981 began its serial assembly at the Kuibyshev aircraft plant, which lasted until 1992 (90 Tu-95MS aircraft were produced).

      By the way, for information in 2019, the Russian Aerospace Forces received five upgraded Tu-95MS.

          In Uzin, out of the new machines, there were only 3 aircraft received in the 91st year. They completed the main rearmament in the 87th, the field of which the Mozdok 182nd Tbap began to rearm. And this regiment was re-equipped in the 89th year, until the 91st year received supernumerary aircraft. As for the end of the release of aircraft in the 92nd year, this is somewhat not true. In the 92nd year, after removing all non-standard equipment and restoring the standard equipment, the aircraft of the early series were transferred to the troops, which had previously been tested in Vladimirovka.
          And in the 99th year, we really got three Tu-95MS of the last series in Uzin. True, there was a scandal. The fact is that at the same airport, the Americans already equipped a cutting base and they really wanted to eliminate the aircraft of the latest series in the first place. In Uzin, they did not ride, unlike Priluk with Tu-160

            when I was on a business trip, in Uzin, the pilots hoped to fly again, helped with the forms for engines and propellers that needed routine maintenance or repairs already, only transport il76 flew, as I understood earlier attributed to the Ryazan paratroopers. warrant officers were fishing on the lake, all in blue techies. they called me the ensign of ensigns lol , then I went to Nikalaev, there were decommissioned aircraft of naval aviation, and everyone was drunk, because they didn’t give me alcohol, nothing happened, there was no one to talk to

              In fact, besides the Tu-95MS regiment, they also had a regiment of Il-78 refueling aircraft. If you remove the UPAZs and the capacity for kerosene on board the aircraft, then it may well get off under the IL-76. What they for the time being and used when making trucking. But, as usual, it all ended in failure. All planes sold out. When we were in the 99th year, the latter were taken by Azerbaijanis.

    For long-range aviation, there is room for relaxation.
    While this is an element of vigorous containment.

    In principle, only the barmalei will drive, and even then, without any air defense it can be heard, they would run away earlier.
    In the event of a confrontation with NATO, he will not be able to take off, not to mention the launch of a rocket.
    So, to indicate their presence in peacetime will go both cheaply and loudly.

      for sure) air defense is not needed. and planes will not take off somewhere in the center of the country. they will be burned immediately by lasers on the ground. to their bases, it’s only thousands of kilometers and the range of launches from these sides is also thousands) they replayed in Wartander?)

      In the event of a confrontation with NATO, yes, a bunch of Russian planes will not take off. And this is as true as the fact that a bunch of NATO aircraft do not have time to take off from airfields and thuja. And this is exactly the same as nowhere will those airmen land that still managed to take off.
      And for all of us, ordinary residents of both Russia and NATO countries, in the event of a confrontation between Russia and NATO, there will not be enough clean air to breathe and cemeteries to bury.

      It’s just that he doesn’t have to sit down; he can stay in the air for days.
      He has one more interesting feature - the ability to fly in an atmosphere heavily polluted with ash (there is volcanic or nuclear, it doesn’t matter), but the turbojets begin to flare quickly. winked

    The first prototype Tu-95 - took off in November 1952, soon, unfortunately, crashed. After the “refinement”, the 2nd instance flew out in February 1955 and was launched into production.
    B-52 - the first flight in 1952 and, after 3 years of refinement, was launched into production, also in 1955.

    We’ll lose Iran, and we’ll have to flee from Syria .. This is definitely!

    You don’t have to lie, Vitalik! The Persians allowed us once to use our airfield as a jump airfield and that’s it. Further banned. Like the span of our cruise missiles. And we must also deliver them TU-95MS ??? There is such a Russian expression - "SHISH WITH MAK" am

    Alas, but not quite so. The thing is that the MC was released between 1979 and 1992. Old mmodifications have long been gone. We can say that only the type of this aircraft in 30 years will exchange a hundredth. And the adversary, unfortunately, flies a B-52, which was released until 1962. The youngest in two years will be 60 years old ...

    By the way, it’s not entirely clear what upgraded MS or modification of MSM arrived for.

        hi

        The test program for the upgraded NK-12MPM engine has not yet been completed, according to rumors. There will be new screws "AB-60T", vibration isolation devices.
        Before 21 years, the contract for MSM will not begin. While the first stage of the modernization of the MS is in progress. I wrote below in more detail about the first stage and gave links to interviews with Slyusar.

        Sorry, that I got into your conversation, but I know how you feel about sensible comments, I could not help but answer.
        Good evening.

          No complaints. Thanks for the info. For more than 22 years I was connected with the Tu-95 (though the RC version) and a couple of years with the Tu-142. Therefore, I am always interested in everything related to these aircraft. Naturally, from solid, proven, and not from couch "experts"hi

      hi

      Judging by what is freely available, it is not MSM yet. This is the first stage in the modernization of combat MS:
      Added the ability to use long-range missiles X-101/102 on an external sling and replaced part of the avionics.
      "MSM" with a new radar, avionics, electronic warfare, engine and modified bomb bay was only supposed to be deflated only at the end of 2019 - early 2020, I did not hear any news about this event, which means it is not there yet.

      Interview Links:
      https://www.interfax.ru/interview/673958


      Earlier, the head of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Yuri Slyusar, announced that in 2020 the premiere of the deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM will take place.

      "2020 is the year of the prime minister. (...) A deeply modernized Tu-95 aircraft, the foundation of our strategic aviation," Slyusar said in an interview with Russia 24 (VGTRK) television channel in late December.

    It seems to be nothing about the engines in the note. Only avionics and electronic warfare complex. Therefore, I ask what kind of modification. Although the pylons, as on MSM, are not observed (unless this is of course one of the modernized ones, and not the first photo that comes across)

    Thank you very much for your reply. But “climbed” is not quite the word that needs to be applied. This is exactly what is welcomed. Especially if not a "cheers-patriotic stuffing", but real information ....
