Deeply modernized Tu-95MSM made its first flight

Flight tests of the deeply modernized Tu-95MSM missile carrier began, and the prototype aircraft made its maiden flight. This was reported by the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).


According to the report, the beginning of flight tests of the Tu-95MSM was announced to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu by UAC General Director Yuri Slyusar before the opening of the Army-2020 military-technical forum.

While visiting the exhibition of the latest aviation technicians at the Kubinka airfield Yuri Slyusar told Sergei Shoigu about the beginning of flight tests of the first experienced deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM

- Said the press service.


It is reported that the first flight of the Tu-95MSM made the day before, taking off from the airfield TANTK them. G.M.Beriev in Taganrog.

The flight took place in normal mode at an altitude of 9000 m, lasted 2 hours 33 minutes, systems and equipment worked without any comments.

The completion of work on the creation of a deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM was reported in March this year.

      Totally agree with you. And the minus was put by a narrow-minded person. I will ask you, close-minded person, how long can we hope for the Soviet past ?! What are we proud of? When will its own, Russian, will be? Answer please?

        Minus is not mine, but still I will try to answer. Su-57, "Armata", "Coalition-SV", S-500, S-400, "Borey" are all Russian developments, although not without the Soviet school. Let's be objective all the same.
        Despite the devastation of the 90s, the design school still managed to be preserved, albeit in a truncated form.

          And why is the Soviet legacy bad ?, because it is ours, dear, that it is bad to rely on Soviet developments, to push them further. Enough to engage in myth-making, both Soviet and fresh, this is our heritage.

            An old construction, but what a beautiful plane - "Bear"! Once upon a time there lived in my neighborhood the commander of such a ship, Sasha, a squadron commander and an old pilot. He told me that every time at the final stage of the glide path and landing, he sank into a chair and sweated: all the time it seemed that this colossus would now creep into the concrete! Nothing carried. It is not for nothing that they wish the aviators: that the number of take-offs be equal to the number of landings!

          So they themselves cannot determine who they are.
          When it suits them, they forget that it comes from the USSR. At the same time, they also cannot give a clear answer for who they are.

            No, not ashamed. My Motherland is the USSR. And erfe is not my country, but a handful of fucking capitalists. Who like to talk about a common homeland when they need to protect their loot in 91. But suddenly everyone has their own homeland when it comes to the fair distribution of the results of labor. Their pearls are small, the proletariat's soup is empty.

Although it’s their homeland. Directly lost in conjecture about such squiggles of liberal logic.

        As they say now, a glider is a platform that does not need to penetrate the rear of the enemy. And it is possible to strike by means of destruction at a distance of 5000 km from the "big box" of your airfield.

          And what is this distance of 5000 km - the practical range in half (which is secret, because the aircraft is not sold for export)? And where is the added range of cruise missiles? And you don't know the difference between surface-to-surface and air-to-surface missiles? What does the box have to do with it?

            Do you know the range of the same "Dagger"? While this is secret information, but it may well be 5000 km. A "box" (a circle of flight in the area of ​​an aerodrome) is figurative, i.e. some targets can be fired at a considerable distance from their home base.

    And the "old man" is still very cheerful ...! However, the USA has the same song from the B-52.
    So what else will we serve, in the sense of flying to evil enemies!

    What design bureaus were all the same under the USSR, such a margin of safety and the possibility of modernization to lay in the car. The bear is already more than fifty dollars, and is still in the ranks and obviously not the last year to serve. Decent car!

      only B52 is two heads taller than Tu95, both in terms of characteristics and durability. at the MAKS 2007 air show in Zhukovsky I saw them on the same site, the impressions were not in favor of the Tu95.

        By the size I agree. Only such a whopper is needed to a greater extent for a much larger volume of fuel, the engines are highly voracious. But at the time of the development of these aircraft, the Americans had nowhere to go - the opponents were too far from the mainland, and they still cannot make the same economical and powerful turboprop engine as the NK12. Although there were attempts more than once. The flight range with the possibility of refueling in the air is not a fundamental value. Our pilots flew the Tu-95MS for 44 hours. Height? Why is she in our time? Previously, there was a chance to overcome enemy air defenses. This is not beneficial now. A little quicker? Well, then what? They are not going to arrange races with each other, and the departure time is calculated from the flight range, speed and time of the strike.
        B-52 built since the beginning of the 50s. We no longer have a Tu-95 of this age. Tu 95MS began to be built in the late 70s, finished in 91. Do you feel the difference?
        When we flew to Barksdale (Louisiana) in 98, the Americans were amazed by our plane and cockpit, they simply did not expect this. But we, when we were talking with the Americans over a glass of "tea" in the B-52 cockpit, were greatly upset by what we saw. Very crowded, gloomy.

    Strategists are a fast-moving ranged weapon platform. The application concept has changed dramatically. It is no longer necessary to break through the enemy's air defense. You don't even need to enter the air defense zone. From your own territory you can whip. Therefore, a platform of large carrying capacity is required, with advanced electronics, and so that it can patrol in the air for days. The minimum operating cost will also not hurt. laughing

      Yes, there is nothing secret here. The first Tu-95 MS could carry 16 missiles (6 in the cargo compartment and 10 on the outer pylons). Only when suspended on external pylons, it was necessary to install the weighted AV60T screws and they went along with the pylons in spare parts with the aircraft from the factory. Well, there are also a number of works. But then the Yankes demanded that Gorbachev exclude the external suspension on these aircraft and they began to be produced in a version for 6 missiles. Although if you look at the photos of the cockpit of this aircraft, you will see a missile weapon control panel at the navigator's place. And he is on all aircraft for 16 missiles.
      Now the X-101 can only be suspended on an external sling, so they shaken off the dust from the old screws. They'll go for modernization.

          The network already has footage of the flight of this aircraft. If you are not very expert in these aircraft, then you will not even notice the replacement of propellers.

        Question (not banter): - I read somewhere that the first Tu-95s did not provide for a toilet and had to carry buckets with them, the routes are long ?!

      The takeoff and landing run is very long, the sound is very loud. And the Tu-126 cannot be compared at all: the runway at takeoff is 3200 barely.

        The advantage of just turboprop engines is that it requires less GDP and the ability to fly at lower speeds.

    Well, how can you write: About ending work to create a deeply modernized strategic missile carrier Tu-95MSM was reported in March this year. .
    Did journalists go to school at all? You can CREATE something new! It is created - God CREATED light, earth, man, and MODERNIZE i.e. you can update, change, improve what you already have! So you cannot CREATE an upgraded aircraft, you can MODERNIZE. update, adapt to new requirements, already existing.

    Yes, you can hear it for a long time as you can see it.
    As I understand it, their tactical application consists in setting up noise interference and illuminating enemy radar screens in all ranges.

    Is the toilet at least modernized, or left as it is again?
