The Ministry of Defense will discuss preparations for the first flight of the modernized Tu-95MSM

Further prospects and preparation for flight tests of the deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM will be discussed at a conference call in the Ministry of Defense. This was announced by the head of the military department Sergei Shoigu.


First, let us discuss how PJSC Tupolev fulfills its obligations to create a modernized strategic bomber Tu-95MSM in the interests of the Ministry of Defense. In particular, we will talk about the manufacture of a prototype aircraft and the beginning of its preliminary and state tests.

- he said.

The fact that the deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM will make its first test flight by the end of August this year was announced on Monday by the head of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Yuri Slyusar, when reporting to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Slyusar reported that the Russian strategic missile carrier was completely updated, even the airframe of the aircraft was improved. It is planned that the updated aircraft will make its first flight by the end of August this year.

We have strengthened the wing, changed individual airframe units. A vehicle with a new set of weapons, with a new on-board complex of electronic equipment, with new modified engines, new propellers, and, in fact, the combat capabilities of the vehicle have doubled after this modernization. I hope that the long-awaited deeply modernized Tu-95 will take off in Taganrog by the end of August.

- said the head of the UAC.

The completion of work on the creation of a deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM was reported in March this year. The message said that the Tupolev company, together with the Beriev Aircraft Company, completed work on the creation of the first deeply modernized Tu-95MSM and began testing the updated systems.

As previously reported, as part of the modernization of the Tu-95MSM, it will receive a new radar, a new information display system, a modernized defense complex, modernized NK-12MPM turboprop engines with the installation of new AV-60T propellers.

The Ministry of Defense plans to carry out a deep modernization of the entire existing Tu-95 fleet.

      I agree with you. But in such reports I am always jarred by the word "WE". The equipment was installed by workers, locksmiths, assemblers and engineers. Such specialists have carried out design and testing activities. Others described the design and operational documentation. Thus, it is necessary to train such specialists, train them, improve their training and interest in appropriate wages.... And you have carried out just a report. Belated. This plane should have flown long ago.

          You can simply exclude yourself. You can simply report that the upgraded aircraft has been installed ... And further in the text ..
          The governor (of the region where I live) Golubev talked on TV for 20 minutes yesterday about how he had grown a good grain harvest this year. And he (this harvest) will be higher than even in the Kuban. It's good that he didn't throw up his speeches. The crop was grown by farmers using their own and hired labor, using purchased and rented equipment, using seeds and fertilizers purchased with their own money and on credit. And the governor ??? He is awaiting re-election on September 13th.
          Likewise, the head of the UAC by the name of Slyusar, when reporting to the President of the Russian Federation, could modestly miss his great role in the modernization of the Tu-95 in Taganrog. ... About the squandering of Rosvertol's assets at one time, where, together with his father, they created a bank, supposedly to support the enterprise. But this apparently needs to be told to other people.

        Here is a quote: "A machine with a new set of weapons, with a new onboard complex of electronic equipment, with new modified engines, new propellers, and, in fact, the combat capabilities of the machine have doubled after this modernization." It is written here about a new complex of weapons, about a new on-board complex of electronic equipment, and where is it written about a comprehensive increase in efficiency by 2 times? It says here that "the combat capabilities of the vehicles have increased exactly 2 times." Maybe you should have added the phrase "overall capabilities" or "cumulative end-to-end capabilities"? Where did I distort the meaning of the quote? Maybe you yourself should fight against your illiteracy?

          Have you been there at the airfields? Haven't you heard the SU-27 take off? At the air defense airfield in Krymsk, I heard them take off in a short runway on afterburner, 500 meters away hurting my ears, against their background the IL-76 takes off silently, like a butterfly, I think, and the Carcass is not too annoying with its uniform hum, and yes, in Krymsk SU-27s took off about once every 8 minutes, and how often do Tu-95s take off? Once a month?

              If my memory serves me, the first carcasses were crewed by 8 people. Pilots, flight mechanic, navigator, operator, radio operator and two gunners in the stern. Generally for some of those. added another mechanic to the questions. But officially, no one ever considered it, they brought it to mind. I believe that there is only one insoles in the stern and a fur board. reduced to one. The guns were apparently left.

    And to confuse. And first of all, not the enemy, but our own. Some of the aircraft have been modernized, but not as deep as the current aircraft. They are also called TU-95MSM in the open press, although this is probably not entirely correct. A characteristic external feature is 4 twin pylons under the wings for 8 X-101/102 missiles.
    In addition, the article says that
    The Ministry of Defense plans to carry out a deep modernization of the entire existing Tu-95 fleet.

    Earlier, the Ministry of Defense announced that only TU-95MS-16 vehicles (there are about 35 of them) would be modernized under the IMS program. Machines of the MS-6 type (there are about 28-30 of them) will not be upgraded. So it's not at all clear what will be modernized

    Judging by the pictures and footage, it will also carry new cruise missiles. This means that their launch will be much farther from the affected area. The safety of the aircraft and the crew is improved, which is good.

    The main thing is that the aircraft itself is in marketable quantities, and the modernization does not turn into a long-term construction.

    All this modernization stems from the desire to use the Kh-101 (Kh-102) KR. Since they do not fit into the inner compartment of this aircraft, they have to be suspended from the outer pylons. Initially, the Tu-96MS was produced for 16 Kh-55 missile launchers, 10 of which could be suspended on external pylons. But in this version it was necessary to install the AV-60T propellers and the outer pylons themselves, which they received in the spare parts and accessories together with the aircraft. And now it is presented as something new. Since the total mass of the X-101 is greater than the total mass of the X-55, a problem arose with the load on the wing. This is logical. Well, the replacement of equipment is long overdue, tk. many enterprises after the dashing 90s simply collapsed and there was simply nothing to repair. In 99-2000, along with the planes themselves in Ukraine, they received urgently needed equipment at the expense of gas debts.
    The only drawback is that the flight range drops sharply with the external suspension of missiles.

    You know, there are a lot of plans in Russia. Modernization is a good thing, but there must be priorities. Tu-95 (the entire numerous fleet), re-production of Tu-160, and a new PAK DA aircraft. a year to do (with a lot of hype in the media)
