    I watched on YouTube about the transfer of these two handsome men. It seems like a huge colossus, but how easily it comes off the “take-off”. Just a sight for sore eyes.

    And someone promised new engines and avionics. But in the end, everything is as usual. They gave the navigator a tablet in the teeth of the navigator and adjusted the carburetor.

      New engines, new avionics, a new system of self-defense are put on missile carriers, upgraded to the level of Tu-160M2. So far, there are only 1 such aircraft. The handed over aircraft have now been brought to the level of Tu-160M1.

        Avionics was changed to a new one. And the engines are old. The Tu-160M1 I mean, that is, modernized combat machines, which are mentioned in the article.
        Only in appearance are these two “White Swans,” as the pilots carry missiles, so reminiscent of previous planes. Inside the inertial navigation system, engine and weapon control systems are created using digital technologies. The changes are dramatic, but the details are kept secret.
        "The old form, which everyone is used to, but a completely new filling," describes Mikhail Mishin, the commander of the flight detachment of the Guard Donbass Red Banner Division, figuratively describing the changes that have occurred with the aircraft. "Everything is completely different. This is a completely different level of development of aircraft, avionics and automation" .

        it was actually stated that the M and M2 aircraft would be technically identical. The Tu-160M ​​index will be received by the sides, upgraded from existing aircraft, the Tu-160M2 will be the new-built missile carriers. But avionics, weapons systems, engines - were announced as identical.

          You're wrong. Now both types of modernization are taking place simultaneously. Last year, the first board took off, upgraded to the M2 state. This is an old board from the VKS. While he is being tested. In 2022–2023, the first white swan in Russia was supposed to fly into the air - a new one, assembled from scratch, and not from the remnants of the Soviet backlog.

            the general director of PJSC Tupolev Alexander Konyukhov disagrees with you:
            "The first aircraft in the guise of Tu-160M2 is already under construction. Tu-160M2 is a fresh glider, a completely new aircraft, and Tu-160M ​​is a modernization of combat aircraft"
            Earlier, the media mistakenly called the Tu-160M2 Tu-160 aircraft, completed from the Soviet backlog ("Peter Deinekin"). According to Konyukhov, the first Tu-160M ​​will go on flight tests only in 2019
            In addition to replacing engines (on NK-12-02 - approx.) And on-board equipment, the Tu-160M ​​receive an expanded range of weapons - in particular, aircraft can use the promising strategic cruise missiles X-101 / X-102.

            Warspot, April 20, '18.

            So there is no M2 yet in nature, they are still under construction

              There is a lot of confusion in the designation, or rather, in the submission of information on the modernization of the Tu-160. It is possible that you are right.

                According to the developers, the aircraft was supposed to get new navigation and sighting systems, a new BLK (self-defense airborne complex), as well as new NK-32-02 engines.
                It is now known that neither the modernized engines, nor the one built from the Soviet backlog, Peter Deinekin received.

      we have few strategists, because they were intended for the only, main goal - to be a carrier of nuclear weapons. And this does not imply a serious nomenclature of weapons - there’s no need, there is enough CRBM with a nuclear warhead.
      Nightmares of the AUG and bombing of ground targets were supposed to have regiments on the much more numerous Tu-22M / M3 - those planes have both anti-ship missiles and bombs.

      It was the States that built 100 strategic B-1Bs, with an impressive B-52 fleet, to use these machines as ordinary bombers, to work with iron, conventional missiles, etc. In addition, the center of nuclear forces in them is strongly biased towards underwater carriers.

    The main armament is cruise missiles. Probably worth having in the arsenal of anti-ship missiles and mines. Although mines are thrown from a turret - it is doubtful, like bombs.

        We will have a KR analogue of AGM-158B X-50, short-range missiles (100-250km, with the ability to attack moving small targets and redirects after launch) X-59MK2. Long arm X-101. Light anti-ship missiles X-31AD, X-35U . Heavy air-based anti-ship missiles? The fact is that both the X-101 and X-50 can work on moving targets, retarget in flight, including on ships, that is, if necessary, they can be used as anti-ship missiles. Now all the new missiles are universal - they work both on the ground and on ships like the Onyx, X-35U.

          you made a mistake by the resource - science fiction and nonsense in neighboring branches)
          Firstly, the X-50 cannot work on moving targets. Have you looked at the control and guidance system? The INS (inertial navigation system) with correction according to GPS / GLONASS data on the marching section and the electron-optical digital correlation system (analogue of the American DSMAC) for the final section of the trajectory are on the rocket. What is DSMAC you do not know. DSMAC (digital scene-matching area correlation) is a digital correlation of the terrain image. Those. the missile goes along a pre-programmed route, checking the accuracy of the course, incl. according to the relief of the terrain to a digital map embedded in the memory. The same system stands on the Tomahawks.

          About any homing and defeat of mobile objects can not be considered.

          X-101/102 also can not work on mobile targets. Missile guidance system - similar to that used in the X-50, i.e. ANN with satellite system correction and comparison of the terrain with a digital map.

          KR X-59MK2 is an analogue of missiles AGM-158 JASSM, Scalp EG / Storm Shadow and is designed to hit targets with previously known coordinates. The control system is similar to the one described above, inertial with course correction according to the GLONASS satellite navigation system data on the march section and an optoelectronic correction system according to the data of the reference terrain map at the final stage.

          Only RCC version can hit moving targets X-59MK. Two-stage guidance - autonomous software in the initial phase of the flight and radio command followed by homing when reaching the target detection line. The coordinates of the target are laid in the sighting and navigation system of the carrier aircraft before flight and transmitted to the missile control system before launch. When the rocket reaches the line 5-10 km from the target, command guidance begins with the help of a television seeker

          as we see, this is not so. More or less universal only missiles with GOS (RCC and SAM). which were originally designed to hit mobile targets. For such missiles, shooting with stationary targets is possible. But on the contrary, the focus will fail.

            X-101 is capable of retargeting in flight.
            Thanks to the specially installed Hephaestus system, the missiles gained the ability to retarget after launch. Using a special channel, the computing subsystem receives a command from the control center located on the ground and transmits the target coordinates received from the satellite to the aircraft. And only when the plane is in the sky, Hephaestus makes the necessary calculations and lays the estimated coordinates in the brains of the rocket. I would like to say that our strategic missile carriers can carry out combat patrols during the day, and at the right time, at the request of the ground forces, launch a missile strike and provide support to the infantry.
            The characteristics of our strategic aviation and its weapons are very worrying for the high army command of the United States. So, in the American publication “The National Interest” they published material entitled “One of the deadliest Russian bombers received new frightening abilities.” The article says:

            “Now the Russians will be able to redirect their cruise missiles even in the air, during their flight. It is not yet clear how many modernized Tu-95 MS aircraft have already received such an opportunity, but over time the entire fleet of Russian airborne missile carriers in service will undoubtedly gain it. This is an important advantage of the Russians, will increase the flexibility and efficiency of the use of their precision weapons. Moreover, these smart Russian missiles are able to communicate with each other in flight ... "

            It is clear why US generals are so concerned about the ability of our missiles. With a massive salvo of x-101 missiles, it is enough to program only one of them, and it will indicate to the other missiles the coordinates or moving targets for which they must "work out". The x-101 cruise missiles have the so-called “swarm intelligence”: after receiving target designation, the group of fired missiles independently decides how it is more convenient to attack the enemy, distributing the detected targets among themselves and building the optimal flight and construction plan. It is enough for an airplane to launch eight x-101 cruise missiles on an aircraft carrier group from a distance of four thousand kilometers and calmly fly home, and the rest will be completed by the missiles themselves.

            https://www.politforums.net/rmo/1516182447.html

            X-101 works on moving targets.
            The second qualitative difference from analogues is the combination of high range with highest accuracy, including moving targets. Along with complementary inertial and satellite navigation systems, an optical homing head is installed on the X-101. In the final section, the correction is carried out by the television system "Octopus", which provides the possibility of defeat, including moving targets.

            The carriers of the X-101/102 family missiles are the Tu-95MS strategic bombers-missile carriers that have undergone modernization (up to 8 on the external suspension nodes) and Tu-160 (up to 12 on the internal drum launchers). There is unverified information that in the future they will be installed on front-line bombers Su-34, and modernized long-range bombers Tu-22M3.

              nonsense)

              X-101 / X-102
              Long-range cruise missile. Developed in the ICB "Rainbow" using the experience of creating a rocket-engine X-55. The missile has an increased range, made using technologies to reduce radar visibility and in two versions in combat units - with conventional warhead (X-101) and nuclear warhead (X-102). According to unconfirmed reports, the development of the rocket began in 1984 (source, in 1992 according to Jane's) and according to media reports, was completed by 1995.
              Control and guidance system - The RCBM is equipped with an inertial guidance system using a digital computer with correction by digital reference maps of flight correction areas using data from a laser (optoelectronic) altimeter or optical image of the area

              those. it has an analogue of the American DSMAC. Enlighten what kind of system it is and how it works, and do not write nonsense)

              As for the "television system". The system does not work at all as you expect. An electronic image of the terrain and the target (taken, for example, from a satellite) is stored in the memory, the TV-GSN compares it with a real picture that it “sees” and steers a little, to ensure the maximum possible accuracy of hitting exactly the desired object.
              There is no point in making the CRBM controlled - look at the range and flight time of the rocket (5,5 thousand km and about 8 hours in the air. 8 hours, Karl!)

              Your amateurish comments and so on under each article in an unrealistic amount. Better take the transition to quality hi

            Hit the moving targets can only version of the RCC X-59MK.

            Not only the Kh-59MK, but also the Kh-59MK2.
            The Kh-59MK2 missile is a modified version of the Kh-59. Its feature is the ability to deliver the most accurate strikes against surface targets and low-contrast ground targets. This modern rocket is able to act on the principle of "shot - forgot." In other words, she herself determines the target and maneuvers, choosing the best trajectory for striking ....

              another nonsense)
              Modifications:
              - X-59 "Gadfly" - the first basic version of the rocket with marching solid propellant rocket engine. Adopted in 1984-1985

              - X-59 telemetric version - version of the test rocket equipped with a telemetric system and additional antennas.

              - X-59M Ovod-M - an upgraded version of the X-59 rocket with turbojet engine.

              - X-59MK - modification of the Kh-59M rocket with active radar seeker ARGS-59. The missile is designed to defeat a wide range of radar-contrast moving and stationary targets. Information on the development of the rocket appeared back in 1992-1993. The prototype was first shown in public in the fall of 2002.

              - X-59MK2 - modification of the Kh-59MK for hitting stationary ground targets with known coordinates, equipped with an onboard inertial guidance system integrated with the GLONASS navigation receiver.
              An updated version of shorter length and mass with a square body in the section, adapted for placement in the internal compartment of the aircraft armament. It was presented at MAKS 2015

                The fact is that there are 2 variants of the X-59MK2.I am writing to you about the latest square-shaped CR (stealth), and not about an earlier version for which your statement is true. X-59 MK2 was first introduced in 2015.

                  absolutely right. The second, newer version, was created for use by stealth aircraft and is intended for placement in the aircraft's internal compartments. Structurally, the missile was made taking into account the requirements for reducing radar visibility, as well as ensuring the use of missiles with suspension in the internal compartments of carrier aircraft. Everything, these are all changes. The filling has remained the same. Including and control system - autonomous inertial with course correction according to the GLONASS satellite navigation system data on the marching section and the optoelectronic correction system according to the data of the reference map of the locality "Gleam" at the final stage

                  By the way, we look where the ECO window is oriented - forward along the course to the surface of the earth.

    But the “backward” Georgians (or anyone else, it doesn’t matter) shot down the “strategist” in 2008, and the “operatives” were shot down, and the “tactics” (this was when Dmitry Anatolyevich was the supreme). What has changed in this sense?

    very poor ammunition, both in terms of quantity and variety ... more types of used UR, UAB, RBC and ABSP are needed

    And he has never been different in breadth of nomenclature among our strategists. The number of our strategists has always been very small, so they mainly carried nuclear weapons. The Americans have such opportunities. Therefore, they are part of their bombers and can be converted into carriers of non-nuclear weapons

    KR of 3 types is needed - X101 - long arm, then KR analog of AGM-158B (range approx. 1000 km, number no less than 24), short-range missile system (100-250 km, with the possibility of attacking moving small targets and redirection after launch, not less than 24pcs). RCC 2 types (heavy and light). PRLR - X58USHK. KAB - 1500kg (and guidance by IS, with 2-3 types of warheads). 1500 / 500kg - UPAB. 250kg UAB with 2 channel guidance. RBC family RBC 500U, PBC-500U. ABSP 250-1500kg (various types). Sea mines 500 / 1500kg caliber. As for the revolver of the installation - according to the MER type, which is installed on the B-1B and B52. With the possibility of a single suspension on it different types of PSUs.

    If we had as many strategists as the United States, we could talk about such a nomenclature. And now "not to fat"
