US Air Force F-22 fighters climbed to intercept Russian missile carriers

88

To escort Russian missile carriers, the Americans took off their fighters. Russian Tu-95 flew over the Pacific, as well as over the Bering, Chukchi and Okhotsk seas.


This was reported in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

Russian strategic missile carriers Tu-95 conducted a long 11-hour flight over neutral waters. On some sections of the route of our aircraft, they were accompanied by American F-22 Raptor fighters.

As the Russian Ministry of Defense emphasizes, such flights are common practice and are conducted by the aerospace forces of the Russian Federation on a regular basis. They do not contradict international law and pass in compliance with all the rules established in the world.

Russian flights aviation pass over the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as well as the Black and Mediterranean Seas.

The practice of mutual interception of bomber or reconnaissance aircraft by fighters of other states has already become a tradition. Russian planes likewise intercept and escort American bombers and reconnaissance aircraft. For example, on April 20, the Su-35 of the Russian Aerospace Forces successfully intercepted a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance scout moving toward military facilities in Syria.

    I have no doubt that next to the Tu-95, F-22 looks enchanting ..
    Why are we driving this rare technique so far? Not even an hour will refuse something over the Pacific Ocean and there will be shame ..

        Why are they trying to compare any of our nonsense with the American? These planes fly at them in local wars, and on a regular basis - here, these planes flew a couple of times to Syria and before that they had been saving the sky for decades - now you get them streaming the United States, contain, for what?
        For the sake of the horror of the US Air Force’s flight from the West Coast? In order to once a couple of years to work on adobe homemade barmaley in Syria?

                When will fall, what will you say?) Will you also be "kind of malicious"?
                His ability to fly in peacetime does not raise my doubts (as well as the ability to fall apart in the air), but the value and the ability to perform a combat mission in wartime causes. Of course, you came to joke here to joke, but just like you brave jokers patched the jambs of our military construction / planning in 1941, so it’s probably worth being more serious.

            You know, there is such a phenomenon called "Cargo Cult". Read it, you may be interested. There are natives who really believe that if you build a model of an airfield and perform certain rituals, then a "big bird" will fly in and drop "supplies" to them.

        The main thing to remember is that sometimes the newest Su-27/30 is rustier than the oldest F-15. It is also important maintenance, storage, and regular repairs, and operating conditions, and fuel, and overhaul life. Remember the hungry 1990s and the very beginning of the zero, when the VKS were still the Air Force.
        But the main problem when comparing the B-52 and Tu-95 is that everyone mistakenly pays attention to age.
        Although the B-52 engines have a slightly higher accident rate than the Tu-95 engines, there are two important points:

        1. The B-52 has 8 engines, versus 4 for the Tu-95, which reduces the risks in case of failure of a single power plant; a critical failure of 4 B-52 power plants at once is less likely, from the point of view of mathematics, than a simultaneous failure of 2 Tu-95 power plants.
        2. Due to the design features, engines Tu-95 (NK-12, if I am not mistaken) have a more "destructive" effect on the airframe, center section and wing in particular. Anyone who at least once watched the takeoff of a Tu-95 or An-22 will understand what I am talking about, and if you look at it from close up, then without protective equipment you can go deaf or get an inner ear injury. These engines well very noisy and, in addition, create a lot of vibrations, which negatively affects the design resource, and since the B-52 is obviously larger in size, it turns out that the center section, due to its overall dimensions, is more massive and the engines create less "destructive" effects, which has a positive effect on the absorption of vibrations by the glider.

        The result is that a direct comparison of the B-52 and Tu-95 in no case unacceptable... Since it turns out that the oldest Tu-95 is newer than the newest B-52, but at the same time the B-52 has a clearly greater margin of safety, due to its size, and also receives less "destructive" vibrations during operation.
        Here you need to look at the average indicators for the fleet of these vehicles, for example: average raid on one side, the number of take-off and landing cycles, the number of medium and major repairs, the number of flights with maximum combat load, typical operating conditions, etc. etc. All this directly affects the reduction in the resource of airborne vehicles; therefore, it is not correct to evaluate the resource and accident rate of these aircraft by the years of their production.
        Do not, airplanes are also sad and sad ( crying

          I don’t know here the avalanches of patriots began this stupid comparison of our antediluvian planes with the American. I really defend a very simple point of view - Americans fly their own junk because they have at hand bases and NATO territories, rescue helicopters, 100500 airfields and so on. He turned around, reached out - no one could even notice the inconsistencies.
          We are on machines that, frankly speaking, with corpses of not the first freshness, even fly to the other half of the globe, where we have NO allies (just do not need about Cuba and Venezuela), NO bases, NO airfields, NO helicopter rescue teams and operational forces.
          The real defense value of such flights is near-zero. Because at "X-hour" these Tu-95s will fly to the missile launch lines dozens of times discovered and shot down. Crews, high-precision and expensive weapons will be lost. In peacetime, we are making PAK YES and "sort of modernizing" the Tu-160 - we continue to roll these aircraft and keep their crews - on equipment that has long served its purpose, which we keep for a real war, and which for a real war is no longer at any gate ...

            I don’t know here the avalanches of patriots began this stupid comparison of our antediluvian planes with the American.
            I will put my 3 kopecks as well, as a man who has served in the Air Force for 30 years, including the chief of staff of the Tu-95MS squadron. First, a feature of strategic aviation is that it fulfills its objectives without entering the enemy's air defense zone. Thus, the Tu-95MS can drop a cruise missile where there is absolutely no Raptor. Given the range of use of this type of ammunition and the specifics of building a route, a missile launcher dropped somewhere (figuratively) in the Laptev Sea will hit a target on the Pacific coast of the United States. Modern cruise missiles only require that they be raised to the line of attack. And where he (the line) is located is a special conversation. The Tu-95MS is perfect for this purpose for several reasons: the success of the design and the amazing survivability of the vehicle, the ability to take on board a really large amount of ammunition, and the prohibitive time spent in the air at a relatively high (about Mach 1) speed. Well, now let's imagine, a regiment of Tu-95MS took off, dispersed in different directions in neutral waters. For what purpose? Where? What for? What ammunition is on board? It is unrealistic to track each side, even considering that the ship has no RCS. Yes - the plane is noisy, yes - vibro-loaded, yes - it was created 70 years ago. But the belief, apart from the fuselage of the modern Tu-95 MS and those of the 50s, has nothing in common. Engines, avionics, electronic warfare equipment - everything is modern. You think that the ship was built in the last century, so it flies. And he and it is he who is suitable for performing certain types of tasks. Tu-160, for example, is intended for other purposes. The Tu-95MS has its own niche. That is why the ship still flies and will fly. Today it perfectly fulfills the functions assigned to it.
            Well, the fact that "strategists" fly off the coast of America or along the west coast of Europe, then everything is extremely simple, the crews need to be trained, including psychologically. The pilot must understand that the car will not fail. And make sure of this.
            And yes, please - statistics on accidents Tu-95 MS - in the studio! Answers such as "if" or "for example", "what if" are not accepted.

              It’s nice to read a solid answer to my questions. Without these bile highs or cheers-patriotic mooing.
              You are a supporter of the fact that this machine is quite suitable for adequately performing its task in the event of a large-scale conflict (hypothetical), I doubt it - and this is not at all about statistics. The devil is in the details - if everything was so cool and easy in the question "I flew to the missile launch line, I shot and it's in the bag" - then I don't think that we would have accepted some kind of replacement for the Tu-95, maybe PAK YES would not develop. He flies himself and flies, everything is wonderful - the speed is about 1M, etc.
              Or maybe the picture is slightly different, and we have another set of technical samples that loom in the sun in order to mask the quantity and status of the product, our real rapid lag behind the potential enemy. But on paper - here they are, strategists, in metal. Actually, this question bothers me - is not it all analogous for a long time to our glorious aircraft-carrying cruiser with the letter K, which already decent time does not meet any needs, eats a bunch of resources and doesn’t pay for itself in case of military operations, let’s say so.

              Many people here, judging by their comments, do not in the slightest doubt that the propeller-driven aircraft will be "like a glove" in the global war of the 21st century, I just cannot agree with this when I read about the American layered air defense.
              Of course, God forbid that we do not find out who is really right in this discussion, but I think that the endless, dogmatic belief in the ageless genius of Soviet designers is more evil than good. And such a phenomenon as "metal fatigue" has not yet been canceled.

                Of course, it is foolish to pass off an airplane from the 50s as a model of flight perfection. I just want to once again, with regard to the Tu-95MS, say only that it occupies a certain niche in the implementation of the general plan of state defense. And in this niche he fulfills his task, from the word "enough". Reasonable sufficiency. But there are other niches: the supersonic Tu-160, the high-altitude and high-speed MiG-31 with a hypersonic missile, the multifunctional Tu-22M3M, the promising PAK YES ... And yes, I am by no means claiming that the Tu-95MS is an irreplaceable machine. ... I am well aware of her age and I understand that, other things being equal, she loses to modern ships on many issues.
                As regards the fatigue characteristics of the ship's glider, today, those aircraft that take off into the air are rather tightly controlled. And no one will take the responsibility of giving the go-ahead for a round-the-corner flight in an untested car. Believe me, the leadership of YES, the Air Force, Moscow Region knows very well what the resonance will be if the board falls apart in the air somewhere over the Atlantic.

      F-22 look in flight with a V-52N no less enchanting? Tu-95MSM will still serve before the arrival of the PAK DA troops. Even surely, along with PAK D.A., the Americans decided that they would operate their B-52N until their 100th birthday.
      In December 2017, the American magazine Jane's Missiles & Rockets informed that the state armament program for 2018-2027 provides for the supply of X-50 operational-tactical missiles (X-SD, "product 715") for long-range aircraft. The dimensions of the newest ammunition will be more modest than the Kh-101 / Kh-102, so the Tu-95MSM will be able to take off with 14 such missiles.

      The X-50 range will be 1,5 thousand km, weight - 1,6 tons. The rocket will be equipped with a turbofan engine ("product 37-04"). The flight will be carried out at subsonic speed (up to 700-950 km / h). However, high-precision ammunition will be inconspicuous for missile defense systems.
      Tu-95MSM will fly on the modernized power plant NK-12MPM with propellers AV-60T, which is currently being tested. New engines have more traction. The brainchild of PJSC "Kuznetsov" will increase the payload of the Bear and improve its takeoff characteristics.
      Dmitry Drozdenko believes that the modernization of the Tu-95MSM is a significant contribution to ensuring guaranteed US nuclear deterrence. New avionics, missile weapons and engines will increase the combat radius of the turboprop “strategist”.

      The last of the B-52s was produced in 1962. And the "fifteen hundred" will fly until 2050 ... if not longer.
      And about the interception of the "bear" by "lightning" - there was a good caricature: "grandfather" F-4 and "father" F-15 show an F-22 standing next to a Tu-95 flying in the background with a gray beard: "Now it's your turn to chase him".

        4) In the case of "X-Day" - this will be the most inhibited part of the nuclear triad - with predicted deployment routes. Due to the size of such aircraft, hiding them from the satellite constellation is an unfeasible task, therefore, before "X hour" their location will be well known and a plan to neutralize them will be thought out.

            And I would agree with you if it weren’t for a couple of points - the United States has a lot of military bases around our country suitable for basing or transit of these planes - this makes it possible to strike on a wide front in a fairly short time, where there will be no lay defense side. Yes, at least with the same B-52. They have a quantitative and qualitative advantage and allows them to keep this archaic, as well as all these convertiplanes and ganships that we would have been driven away with well-known brooms long ago.
            In our case, due to the lack of external bases, we determine the impact of our air component to a certain extent - I mean the direction. Our front is much narrower, and we can do something about it only in the direction of the range of autonomous flight (with stealth), the speed at which the missile launch lines reach, the number of vehicles simultaneously in the air (economically impractical).
            Based on this reasoning, I understand that the Tu-95 cannot be an excellent option for these parameters - because the quantitative, high-speed and EPR characteristics of this machine do not play into his hands when he acts on a well-known front (and the enemy will be able to think ahead of time counter measures).
            How would we fly to the USA? Across the east or north-north are the vast expanses of Canada literally filled with detection tools and air defense missiles, not to mention the fact that flying through the pole of these aircraft is an additional problem.
            The eastern direction remains - there we will be "accepted" by the darlings, and there will be no surprise.
            Japan, Korea - have enough American detection equipment to determine the route of such a "good" ahead of time - leaving us less front on which we will be forced to use such aircraft. On this front, the United States, before "X-Day", will concentrate resources capable of knocking out our air component - that's all. The fairy tale is over.

            So it’s incorrect to compare our strategists and US strategists. We have different conditions and need a different approach - we are in unequal configurations.

      Attempts by the Norwegian Air Force to approach the Russian Tu-160 and carry out a conditional interception were unsuccessful, the reason for which was the presence of Russian MiG-31 fighter interceptors near the rocket carriers.

      In addition, if you intercept a target at a great distance, then it can begin to leave, and the interceptor simply does not have enough fuel to intercept it and return to base.

          This “secret information” about fuel shortages once tragically ended for a South Korean flight. Whether this is true or not, I don’t know, but such a cartoon. After the flight of Belenko to Japan on the MiG-25 in 1976, Soviet aircraft in the Far East began to refuel only for flights from their airport to the border and back.
          Korean Boeing 747 flight KE007 in 1983 for some reason, during the flight from Alaska to Seoul, deeply went into the territory of the USSR and passed over military facilities. The Su-15 accompanied him, but when the Boeing was to leave the territory of the USSR, the Su-15 could not accompany him further due to lack of fuel. The destruction team followed.

When Sokolov's one son became a lieutenant general, deputy commander of the district, and the second at 32 already became a major general - is that also politics? The younger, after "mozhaiki", suddenly became the commander of a motorized rifle platoon, and then "accidentally" went uphill along the commander's line. When Gorbachev was informed about this, even he was indignant, and as some knowledgeable people said, he asked the question - "Are there too many generals in one family?" And here Rust turned up, so they put Sokolov out under a plausible pretext so as not to engage in the CCP.

    The role of our air component will be higher than that of the American ... due to the fact that we have new missiles with a range of 3500-5000 km, and they have 80s with a range of 2500 km .... well, useless B- 2A with cast iron bonbs ...

    A very controversial option. Physically, the role of our air component cannot be higher due to the smaller number of carriers. The new Kh-101 / Kh-102 missiles are so far only on 6 Tu-160M1 and 16 Tu-95MSM bombers (?). All in all, the fleet of our strategists is about 76 vehicles. The United States, on the other hand, can supply "under arms" a total of about 2 hundred vehicles of the B-52H, B-1B, B-2A and B-52G types.
    Moreover, if the V-2A is currently not able to use strategic missiles, this does not mean that in the very near future it will not be able to do this after launching the LRSO cruise missile series
