New rocket for strategic bombers

65
In the course of the current state program of re-equipment of the Russian army, not only military equipment is created and supplied. Not forgotten weapons of various types. On Wednesday it became known that in the coming months, the Air Force will receive a new long-range cruise missile.


New rocket for strategic bombers
X-55 - subsonic airborne cruise missile


According to Interfax, the presence of such plans was told by Deputy Defense Minister A. Sukhorukov. It is alleged that recently there were two test launches that were deemed successful. There are two more test launches in the plans for August, after which a final decision will be made regarding the adoption of the new missile and the corresponding papers are signed. Unfortunately, Sukhorukov did not announce at least the name of the new rocket, not to mention its characteristics. All available official data is limited to the phrase "strategic long-range cruise missile."

Nevertheless, even from such scanty data some conclusions can be drawn, especially in the light of the previously disclosed information. Currently, the Russian air force has two types of strategic air-launched cruise missiles. This X-55 and its deep modernization called X-555. Various modifications of the X-55 family of missiles have a range from two to three thousand kilometers. All of them are equipped with inertial guidance systems with the correction of the flight trajectory along the relief of the flying ground. The essence of this technique consists in combining standard inertial navigation and comparing a reference relief map with an actually “observed” landscape. This guidance provides very good accuracy of entry and does not require any third-party navigation tools like satellite systems. The means of delivering the X-55 and X-555 missiles to the launch site are the Tu-95MS and Tu-160 strategic bombers.

Since the X-55 family of missiles appeared at the beginning of the 80s, work on the creation of new air-based cruise missiles, which would become the successors of the X-55, was carried out for a long time in our country. First, the specialists of the ICB Raduga, engaged in the program of cruise missiles of air basing, tried to make a hypersonic strategic missile. However, after some failures and the collapse of the USSR, they had to return to the old, but well-established concept of a subsonic cruise missile. In the early nineties, the project started X-101 / 102. To reach the launch range in 5500 kilometers, the designers had to give the rocket a larger size than the X-55. This led to an increase in the starting weight of the 700-800 kilogram. According to reports, the weight of the warhead remained the same - 400-410 kg. Similarly, the situation with the range of missiles X-101 and X-102. Changes to the design, the use of the new engine and the update of the navigation system led to a slight increase in maximum speed. She reached 950-970 kilometers per hour. As for the type of warhead of the new missiles, in the X-101 version it carries a conventional charge, and in the X-102 version - nuclear. The power of a nuclear warhead is estimated at 180-200 kilotons.

The start of testing the X-101/102 rocket was planned back in the late nineties, but the situation in the country forced to adjust these plans. As a result, the development, testing and development of a new rocket dragged on for more than ten years. In 2010, it was reported that the X-101 rocket was brought to mind and has very good prospects. At the same time, equipping the far aviation such missiles will require some innovations. First of all, it is necessary to note the corresponding refinement of the onboard equipment of the missile carriers. In addition, in the case of Tu-95MS aircraft, there is another snag of a constructive nature. The cargo compartment of this bomber cannot accommodate new missiles because of their longer length. That is why in the available photographs of the Tu-95MS, the X-101 missiles were suspended on pylons under the wing, two on each. Thus, each Tu-95MS can simultaneously deliver up to eight missiles to the launch point. In the light of existing international agreements on strategic weapons, such an opportunity looks very, very interesting. The fact is that at present, only six X-95/55 missiles inside the cargo bay can carry Tu-555MS. Under-wing pylons are not used under contracts. It is possible that the adoption of the X-101/102 missile will cause an ambiguous reaction of foreign politicians. As for the Tu-160 aircraft, according to reports, they can easily take the full load of twelve missiles, since the size of the cargo compartment and the capacity of the drum launchers allow this.

The situation with the new rocket at the present time can not be called clear and fully understandable, especially with regard to a specific model. The assumption regarding X-101 / 102 is made in view of the high degree of completeness of the project. In addition, in the spring, Defense Minister A. Serdyukov spoke about a certain new strategic air-launched cruise missile, which had already gone to the troops and increased their combat potential. It is possible that a certain amount of X-101 / 102 has already been sent to long-range aviation for the development of new weapons or trial operation. However, there is no complete official data on this issue yet.

The statements of A. Sukhorukov about the new strategic munition, among other things, are interesting also because he mentioned another project designed for a more distant future. According to the deputy minister, by the end of this year, the first tests of the hypersonic missile program will begin. Other details regarding the hypersonic program Sukhorukov did not announce. Perhaps this project is the development or renewal of X-90, which at one time made a lot of noise. It is not necessary to exclude the possibility that the new project only uses the previously collected information, and it is created almost from scratch. However, the first specific information on a promising hypersonic rocket will appear no earlier than the next winter.

          these are rather analogs of the American air-launched cruise missiles AGM-86 and AGM-129. And the analogue of the tomahawk is the RK-55 "Granat"

    Friends, develop my doubts about our main strategic bomber Tu-95. In the First World War there was a glorious bomber "Ilya Muromets", could it be somehow "deeply modernized" so that it would fit in 20 years on the fields of the Second World War? It seems to me not, even the DB and TB of the 30s had time to become obsolete by the war. And here is a project of the 50s of the last century, isn't it a waste of time and money?

      I think this rocket is intended in the 1 line for supersonic ones 160 of which we have 16 pieces and each carries 12 rockets - total 184 rockets * per 200 kilotons = end to any aggressor wink
      and about a hypersonic missile, so it is most likely developed under the PAK YES which is promised in 2020 - 2025, it’s good that they are already developing - both the aircraft and the armament for it will be ready, so don’t worry, we have and will have an answer))

      And why doesn’t it suit you?
      The Americans (who are much richer than us) still use the B-52, which made its first flight on April 15, 1952, and began to operate in February 1955 and they are not going to write it off.

        In addition, B52 is planned to be used for a very long time. Not just because they have old planes at airfields in the desert, they can remove parts for parts for another hundred years. The only question is how reliable they will be.

      Glider may be old. The main stuffing (full stuffing is fashionable) and People. People who are able to give an order, and People who are ready to fulfill it. (I think so). But the German landing on Red Square could well be a suicide bomber with any charge on board. And he didn’t fly on a super device. I am an amateur in strategic aviation. If I'm talking nonsense, correct it.

        Indeed, not a super apparatus. Most likely, part of the cladding is made of carbon fiber or other lightweight and non-radio-contrast material. Plus, he flew around the terrain. So there is nothing surprising in his "air defense breakthrough". If the same device is launched in Europe (well, it is in ... ooo), the Europeans, most likely, will also "screw it up". Also, I have suspicions that the Europeans and the more serious apparatus may miss, as they missed our SU-27, which flew half of Europe.
        And the German apparatus, really could corny take on board a couple of tens of kilograms of explosives and crash into ... Mausoleum for example.

          In the midst of the Cold War, our pilot ejected from a falling MiG-23 somewhere over Poland, but the plane did not fall and flew EQUALLY AND STRAIGHTLY (!!!) to the west, so all NATO air defense got wet, and the squeal was heard only when , having "eaten" all the fuel, the plane crashed somewhere in the Netherlands or Belgium. So there are bugs everywhere
          the question is, what do you miss: an empty plane or with such a stuffing ...

            July 4, 1989 at 11.21 Moscow time from the airfield of one of
            air units of the Northern group of Soviet troops in the area of ​​the city of Kolobrzeg
            (Poland) MiG 23M fighter piloted by pilot
            1st grade and head of the political division of the air division Colonel Nikolai
            Skuridin.

            At the 41st second of a training flight over the Baltic coast of Poland on
            altitude of 150 meters, the pilot detected a drop in aircraft engine thrust
            MiG-23. Turning the car to the sea, the pilot ejected.

            Before landing, Skuridin managed to notice how the fighter crossed
            coastline and lost in the background of the waves.

            Locators lost the object, and fighters flying after the emergency MiG
            they did not find him.

            It was decided that the plane crashed into the sea. Messages from Western radio stations about
            that the Soviet MiG-23 with tail number 29 fell in the vicinity
            Brussels, became a complete surprise to the Soviet military
            guides.

            Left without a pilot, the Mig-23 flew another 900 km.

            According to the flight recorder, 6 seconds after
            bailout the engine suddenly began to increase speed, and the plane
            continued the flight with a slight climb in automatic mode.

          Lord, how many times to repeat, the Germans were fired from the border itself and the fighters were lifted into the air, just remember what were the times, perestroika and glasnost, and most importantly, who was in power. There was only one thing: a strong-willed decision to destroy. No one after the Korean Boeing, who went to feed the fish and public resonance about this around the world, did not want to take responsibility.

      No, the Tu-95MS of the 80s release has similarities with the Tu95 of the late 50s only because the glider itself proved to be excellent (how long have you seen a modernized spoon?). In fact, these are completely different cars. Yes, it is a turboprop, but it has proved itself to be very efficient, moreover, it is economical, and its speed is not inferior to modern passenger liners and cruises at 750-800km / h
      The important thing is that inside, avionics is completely new there and modernized as far as scientific and technical progress, and about a rocket it’s a separate song;
      In addition, Tu95 honestly do not care for all this, when missiles are launched a thousand km before entering the enemy air defense, and do not care if the missile range is increased to 5 thousand.
      In addition, if you look at the B52, you will notice that it is still older than the Tu95, moreover, the Americans have the youngest B52 of the late 60s, and our 80s. so all the way through. But B1 is more correct to compare with Tu160, but even here the Swan on TTX in all areas sticks its nose B1

                I also advise you to pay attention to the words "... for combined arms", as this implies the use of weapons by fighters with below average qualifications, or even without it. Earlier I wrote that any special or reconnaissance operation implies the use of the most suitable weapons. The unified weapon here will have obviously lower characteristics, but for military operations it will be the very thing. And here there really are no alternatives to the AK family.

      Given the number of Tu-160 and their vulnerability


      pratsantra - well, about the quantity, but you can’t argue with us there is little, but as for vulnerability, I don’t think so that a supersonic bomber with powerful electronic warfare equipment is so vulnerable, they are called terminators and blackjackers for invulnerability.

        Yes, no, I meant vulnerability to a preemptive strike, while it is defenseless at the airport, it is necessary to make them as combat-ready as possible.

    March 20, 2012 Russian Minister of Defense A. Serdyukov in a speech at an expanded meeting of the board of the Ministry of Defense said that the Russian Armed Forces were in service a new long-range air-based cruise missile.
    Rocket Kh-101 / "product 111"
    Rocket X-102 (version with nuclear warhead)

    Control system and guidance - according to the media, the KRBD is equipped with an "Sprut" optoelectronic flight trajectory correction system with a television guidance system at the final stage., the rocket is equipped with an inertial guidance system using an on-board computer with correction according to digital reference maps of flight correction areas using laser (optical-electronic) data altimeter. At the final stage of the flight, an optical or radar correlation seeker is probably used.
    Engines - small-size turbofan engine, presumably, RD-95TM-300 with a thrust of 360 kg, extended from the bottom of the fuselage after launch. Perhaps it is not the engine that extends, but the air intake of the engine. In the Western media there is information about the variant of the rocket engine with a turbofan engine
    Weight - 2200-2400 kg
    Mass of warhead - 400 kg
    Length - 7.6 m (estimate)
    Wingspan - 4.4 m (estimate)
    Case diameter - 0.75 m (estimate)
    Area of ​​EPR - 0.01 sq.m
    Range - 5000-5500 km
    Maximum speed - 250-270 m / s
    Cruising speed - 190-200 m / s
    Flight altitude:
    - minimal - 30-70 m
    - maximum marching - 6000 m
    QUO:
    - 12-20 m
    - 6-9 m (during testing,)
    - 100 m (mod. With nuclear warhead,
    Presumably the prototype of the X-101 CRBD of the 2010 model under Tu-95MS, summer 2010 (fragment of a photo by Denis Apalkov, http://russianplanes.net).

    By hypersound apparently stopped at the project MKB "Raduga"
    At the Raduga Design Bureau, several prototypes and designs of hypersonic models for testing hypersonic aircraft engines were developed, two of which (Model 1 and Model 2) were tested in flights in 1973-78 and 1980-1985, respectively. The IBC, together with TsAGI, provided information on this at the MAKS-97 air show.
    In the early 1990s, the ICD developed a new class system - hypersonic experimental aircraft (GELA). In the West, there is the name cruise missile AS-19 Koala (previously the designation AS-X-19 was used to KR "Meteorite"), since initially the system had a military purpose. This X-90 supersonic cruise missile with a range of 3000 km was created to replace the X-55. A missile can carry two individually guided warheads capable of hitting two targets 100 km distant. The X-90 carrier could be an elongated version of the Tu-160M. Work on the rocket was suspended in 1992. (I wrote about this more than once already; I will not be clear to everyone why and why)

      The history of the X-90 began in 1971. Then the developers turned to the government of the USSR with a project to build small strategic cruise missiles that could operate at low altitudes, applying to the terrain. This proposal did not find a response then from the leadership, however, after the United States in 1975 began the development of strategic cruise missiles (Cruise Missile), they remembered it. The developers of the missiles were ordered to begin development in mid-1976. It was supposed to be completed by mid-1982. Already by December 31, 1983, the missile was supposed to be adopted. One of the main requirements was to provide the rocket with supersonic speed.
      In the late 70s, the X-90 reached a speed of 2,5-3M, and in the 80s it was already 3-4 M. At that time, the X-90 GLA equipped with a ramjet engine was about 12 meters long. The current rocket does not exceed 8-9 meters. After separation from the carrier aircraft at an altitude of 7000-20000 meters, the triangular wings are opened, with a wingspan of about seven meters, and also the tail. Then, the solid-fuel accelerator is turned on, which accelerates the rocket to supersonic speed, after which the main engine, providing a speed of 4-5 M, enters into action. The radius of action is 3500 kilometers.
      The United States at one time abandoned their development for financial reasons, and limited to subsonic. In Russia, the work was also carried out inconsistently, but the pauses were short. Already in July 2001, the press announced the launch of the Topol missile. Noteworthy was the unusual behavior of ballistic warheads for ballistic specialists. Then it was not confirmed that the warhead is equipped with its own engine, allowing it to maneuver in the atmosphere with hypersonic speed. The already mentioned February 2004 exercises, first held throughout Russia since 1982, turned out to be a real sensation. During these exercises, two ballistic missiles were launched: one “Topol-M” and one RS-18. As it turned out later, the RS-18 was equipped with some kind of experimental apparatus. He went into space, and then again “dived” into the atmosphere. This maneuver seems incredible with the current level of technology. At the moment the warhead enters the dense atmosphere, its speed is 5000 m / s (approx. 18000 km / h). Therefore, the warhead must have special protection against overloads and overheating. Apparently, the device tested during the exercises is similar to the X-90. To this day, its true appearance is a state secret.

        Instead of the usual warhead, which follows an unchanged trajectory, and could theoretically be intercepted by a missile defense, the RS-18 had a device capable of changing the altitude and direction of flight, and thus overcome any, including the American missile defense system. Asked by reporters how he thinks the US will react to the news, President Putin said
        “The US itself is actively developing its own weapons.”
        “Together with other states, Russia is responsible for stability and security on the vast Eurasian continent”
        According to Russian experts, equipping even a small part of this arsenal with winged warheads will make Russian missile forces “decades ahead” invulnerable to any missile defense system.
        a hypersonic warhead is not the only development in this direction. There are also programs “Cold" and flying laboratory "Needle", on which the details of the Russian aerospace aircraft (RAKS) are tested. All of them can be part of a single creation plan. a maneuvering warhead invulnerable to a promising missile defense.
        At an altitude of 7-20 km. Koala is separated from the bomber.
        Immediately after this, the triangular wings unfold and the solid fuel engine starts

          The idea of ​​overcoming missile defense systems is basically not new. Back in the 60s, a project was created in the USSR “global rocket. ” The idea was to use the launch vehicle to bring the warhead to near-earth orbit where it was turned into an artificial Earth satellite. Then, on command, the brake engine turned on, and the warhead was sent to any target for its destruction. At that time, the United States established its missile defense system based on the fact that Soviet missiles would fly at the shortest distance through the north pole. It is hard to imagine anything better as a weapon of the first strike, since global missiles could attack the United States from a southern direction, where the Americans did not have radars that could detect flying missiles and take countermeasures. November 19, 1968, this Soviet system was adopted and in small numbers put on combat duty. At the Baikanur cosmodrome, 18 R-36 orb missiles were deployed. (orbital) mine-based. After the conclusion of the OSV-2 agreement prohibiting orbital rockets, the system was dismantled. Although the treaty was not ratified, the USSR and the USA adhered to its terms. In 1982, the dismantling and destruction of the R-36 orb. Began, which ended by May 1984. Launch complexes were blown up
          Perhaps now, at a new technological level, the system will survive a rebirth. This means that the US missile defense system, in which SSCHA is investing tens of billions of dollars, loses its meaning. Therefore, the United States is now starting to deploy radar systems near the Russian borders in order to detect and destroy missiles immediately after launch, before the separation of the warhead.
          But for this, according to experts, there are a number of countermeasures, partially developed in the framework of the Soviet program of countering SDI. So attempts to intercept can be hampered by the fact that the rocket, in the active phase of the flight, performs an orbital maneuver, For example, the Topol-M rocket can commit vertical and horizontal maneuvers. In addition, a trajectory that does not leave the dense layers of the atmosphere makes interception difficult. And in a critical situation, they can return to the idea global rockets. And this is not a complete list of countermeasures to avoid the interception of missiles at the active stage. When the X-90 hypersonic warhead separates from the missile, it is practically invulnerable.

      Who told you that the X-101/102 is subsonic. There is so little information on this system that it is difficult to make an idea of ​​its performance characteristics. RCC is the mission of the rocket and not its classification. Suppose RCC family Caliber is also a CD. The only thing that can be said with 99% probability is that it implements an algorithm for firing at a moving target. Most likely, these missiles implement the following flight algorithm: the speed on the route is subsonic, and on approach to the target and attack supersonic. At least it is not correct to compare the plane and the CR, not the weight and size characteristics. Accordingly, the fuel and engine reserves are different.

    Quotations - "The statements of A. Sukhorukov about the new strategic ammunition, among other things, are interesting because he mentioned another project for a longer perspective. According to the Deputy Minister, the first tests under the hypersonic missile program will begin by the end of this year. "

    Such projects should not be issued in the distant future, but today, for dinner. Because by dinner, the Americans will give out their own.

    "Perhaps a number of Kh-101/102 have already been sent to long-range aviation for the development of new weapons or trial operation."
    I propose to combine the trial operation with an air defense check of Israel and maybe Turkey. They are asking for it today. And program the flight route in such a way (since the flight range allows) that the rocket surges from somewhere from one of the NATO countries. For example, from the old list of England.

    American Tomahawks can be launched both from aircraft and from ships. Is this considered reasonable by us, or is a special modification being created for sailors?
