Tu-160M ​​and Tu-22M3M will receive a new short-range navigation system for refueling

The upgraded short-range navigation system for landing and refueling in the air will be installed on Russian modernized missile carriers Tu-22M3M and Tu-160M. This was told by the chief designer of JSC "Radiopribor" Evgeny Glebov.


Speaking to reporters, Glebov explained that the upgraded Tu-22M3M and Tu-160M ​​received a glass cockpit and now a new short-range navigation system is being created under it, which ensures the detection of a refueling aircraft and the aircraft's exit to a given point for refueling.

A feature is that a glass cabin appears on these machines. All systems are in the "figure" with certain GOSTs. Under these GOSTs, we refine our equipment in terms of interaction with equipment, provide digital outputs for interfacing with a glass cabin

- he said.

Glebov said that the plant has already released the first sets of an updated navigation system for modernized missile carriers. According to him, two samples of the system for the Tu-22M3M are already undergoing flight tests with the aircraft, now three navigation systems for the Tu-160M ​​are being manufactured.

The task of our equipment is to show where and at what distance is the tanker plane from the combat aircraft

- he added.

      And to them a new engine

      New nK-25 engines are not available.
      NK-32 engine on a Tu-22M3M aircraft without alteration of the entire nacelle ... not possible

    And will it be possible for pilots to have a shower during refueling with this "glass cockpit" and new navigation?

    If I am not mistaken, this is actually an official confirmation, albeit indirect, that an air-refueling system will be returned to the modernized Tu-22M3! good Before that, there were only speculations and assumptions.

      Here was information that the Tu 22 after modernization receives a refueling system. Under the optic guard on the left of the cab.

          Look at the photo of Tu 22 after modernization. A couple have already been rolled out. And what about the information, should Konoshenko speak? Like, we realized a mistake by accepting the offer of our American friends by cutting off the back-up system in the 90s. The states have a tsru, let them work the bread.

            There is information from the MO about the plans and volumes of modernization of the Tu-22M3 to Tu-22M3M. EMNIP, information about the return of the refueling system was not there.

              The Air Force commander doesn’t go to see me in the morning. There must be some kind of secret. Let us restrict ourselves to the classics. Do you see the gopher? And I don’t see it! But he is there.

              there was no information about the return of the refueling system.

              Such information was widely discussed and covered. In the upgraded Tu-22M3M, a hump appeared on the nose in front of the lantern with sashes for the refueling rod. Look at the roll-out frames, it immediately catches your eye.

      C'mon, already how many pictures are published. Look on the internet for a plane with a hump on its nose.

      this is actually an official confirmation

      The RSBN system, with the INTER-AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION unit, was installed on a Tu-22m ... from the very BIRTH.
      "Calls" RSBN-PKV-works in the "Navigation" or "Meeting" mode. It is regularly used to perform flight in formation (building and collecting combat order "by catching up on a route, maintaining specified intervals and the distance in the battlefield to the leading, leading group and observing the time interval when assessing the target's reach).
      The launcher is located at the navigator of the ship, above the "! Average missile console" (which is closed by a lid "... two launchers, the first ARK-15m, the second RSBN-PKV.
      The fact that .. "upgrade" is good ... but ... this is not any actual confirmation (on the Tu-160 there are similar short-range navigation systems)

        Thanks for the clarification on the RSBN system. Just the title of the article suggested that this is a confirmation of the installation of a refueling system:
        ... Tu-22M3M will receive a new short-range navigation system for refueling

        RSBN-PKV is a fairly good system, but the IL-78 has RSBN-7 without inter-airplane navigation mode. Even when he served, the Tu-95MS worked out a rapprochement system with a tanker. Hastily put additional equipment, an antenna, and in the cockpit, they almost stuck a monitor from a laptop on tape. But the range was such that the pilots only grinned - they already saw the tanker and only then did a mark from it appear on this monitor.
        The whole idea of ​​upgrading this equipment, in my opinion, boils down to the need to bind the output analog signals to digital ones for output to the screen (or as they say “glass cabin”).

    RECEIVE, NOT RECEIVED! Another fairy tale, which is not very rushed and in a hurry to fulfill.

    About a year or two ago, when the first modernized Tu-22M3M was rolled out, a brief information note with a photo appeared on VO about this news, and I drew attention to a certain "growth" from above, on the nose of the aircraft, suggesting that it’s the casement hatch, where does the refueling module come from, so one of the forum participants “pounded his heel on the chest”, that it’s not possible, they say a violation of the contract, that he would be the first to know about such an event .... lol It’s a pity I don’t remember his nickname, but I’m too lazy to dig into the archive. bully
