American magazine included Tu-160M ​​with NK-32-02 engine in the list of world achievements

The American leading specialized magazine Aviation Week & Space Technology has included the Russian strategic bomber Tu-2020M ​​"White Swan" with the latest NK-160-32 engines in the list of the most significant world achievements in the field of engine building for 02.


The publication, which appeared in the latest issue of the magazine, states that the Russian modernized strategic bomber Tu-160M ​​flew with the upgraded NK-32-02 engines on November 3. The publication draws attention to the fact that the compressor and turbine blades, as well as improved cooling, have been newly developed for the NK-32-02.

Redesigned compressor and turbine blades, as well as improved cooling, increased the fuel efficiency of the turbojet by-pass engine, capable of operating in afterburner mode

- stated in the material.

A Russian strategist with a new engine became the only example of Russian engine building to be included in the publication's list for 2020.

Tu-160M ​​with new NK-32 engines of the second series took off from the airfield of the Kazan aircraft plant named after S.P. Gorbunov on November 3, 2020 and spent 2 hours 20 minutes in the air. The missile carrier was piloted by the crew led by test pilot of the Zhukovskaya flight test and development base Anri Naskidyants. It is specified that the new NK-32-02 engines installed on the missile carrier are serial.

    On Tu-22m3 it is necessary to install the same engine.

      So a series is needed for that .... we do not have so many equipment where this engine will go. Tu22 and Tu160, but where else?

        At the moment they have different engines.

          This unification is already planned.
          Tu-22M3M is the latest modernized missile bomber. For the first time he ascended into the sky on December 28, 2018. The flight lasted 37 minutes.
          RG has already written that the updated bomber-missile carrier received the latest electronic equipment. Instead of the standard NK-25 engines, modernized NK-32-02 power plants were installed. The aircraft can carry hypersonic and Kh-32 cruise missiles.

        The same An-124, PAK DA will use an engine created largely on the basis of the NK-32-02. There was also a PD-30 project. I do not know if the PD-30 is being developed now?

        Russian-made NK-124-32 engines will be installed on the An-2 Ruslan military transport aircraft
        The An-124 Ruslan military transport aircraft will receive domestic engines. This task has been set for the country's industry. It is based on equipping An-2019 Ruslan heavy military transport aircraft with domestic engines by 124, instead of the previously installed Ukrainian D-18Ts.
        This information was shared with the media by Anton Shatsky, Deputy General Designer of OJSC Kuznetsov. He said that the NK-32 series 2 engine, previously created for installation on the Tu-160 strategic missile carriers, was taken as a base model for designing a new engine. According to Shatskiy, this engine has a "unique turbine that can withstand prolonged high-temperature conditions" of engine operation.
        As Shatskiy said: "The deadlines are extremely tight. We have to precisely" fit "into the dimensions of the nacelle intended for the installation of the Ukrainian D-18T. But despite all these difficulties, the task set before us can be solved."
        He also said that during 2015 the Kuznetsov firm had already completed a set of works and studied the possibilities of using the gas generator of the NK-32 engine on An-124 Ruslan aircraft. The developments have shown that the series 32 engine, created on the basis of the NK-2, will have a maximum take-off thrust of 24 tons (for the D-18T - 23,4 tons), and the working thrust of the engine at an altitude of 11 thousand meters and at a speed of 0,75 Mach will be 5 tons.

      There is NK-25. They are smaller in size. In order to cram the NK-32 into the Tu-22M3M, the entire plane must be altered.

        And nevertheless, according to some information, the NK-22-3 will be on the Tu-32M02M.
        He noted that "the Tu-22M3M avionics system will be completely new and unified with the Tu-160M2." "This applies to all avionics, including the navigation and sighting system," the source said, emphasizing that after modernization the Tu-22M3M will be able to use "modern long-range high-precision weapons."

        The power plant, according to him, will be Tu-22М3М identical to Tu-160М2 (new engines НК-32-02 of Samara Kuznetsov PJSC).
        The source noted that the terms of modernization and the number of updated aircraft depend on "the capabilities of the plant, on how the work on the first machines will go."

        Their sizes are almost the same. NK-32 is a development of NK-25 (base). Therefore, they are already specifically talking about the installation of NK-32-2 on Tu-22m3m.
        It would also be nice to upgrade the NK-32 to three-circuit, so that the optimization switches to subsonic and supersonic modes.

        Improving the characteristics of long-range missile carriers will take place according to the scheme used for the Tu-160M2: only the airframe will remain from the previous aircraft (and even that is being modified). Instead of the standard NK-25 engines, the updated Tu-22M3 will receive modernized power plants for the Tu-160, NK-32-02. They have a similar thrust of 25 tons at afterburner, but they have a much greater resource and are much more economical than their predecessors. In the case of the Tu-160, the new engines increase the flight range by a thousand kilometers, for the Tu-22M3, this figure will increase by one and a half times, up to 10000 km.

        Not mine..

        For the Pepsi generation, a major victory over France in the qualifying match of the Olympic tournament may seem like an incredibly cool achievement :)))

        However, I will note that until the 1990s, players not older than 23 years old who were not professional footballers had the right to participate in the Olympic football teams. Therefore, many players who played at a high level at the age of 18-20 and started playing for some decent club at this age did not have the opportunity to play for their country's Olympic team.

        Of course, these rules did not apply to "amateurs" from the USSR - "Dynamo" players were registered as police officers in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, "Torpedo" players - turners and locksmiths at ZiL, "railroad workers" from "Lokomotiv", according to their work books, were railway workers without any quotes. Therefore, if all sorts of macaroni with paddling pools declared real amateurs in the Olympic teams, the Soviet Olympic team was a well-played and matured youth team with experience of playing at the highest level. Taking into account the massiveness of Soviet sports, the rivals had few chances, one could even indulge in home passing matches, for example, declare half of the Armenian team.

        That is why the teams of the USSR and other socialist countries dominated in the Olympic tournaments - only young professionals competed from them, who competed with amateurs. Similarly, at the Universiades, when Soviet (and now Russian) professional athletes (sometimes even participants in Olympiads) with a student card compete with amateur students from other countries.

      I would not call engines with a service life of up to 1000 hours an ingenious product.
      Moreover, if this engine belongs to strategic bombers, than the normal flight is from 6 to 10 hours.

          Read more literature.
          The first engines had a service life of 250 hours.
          Then they were able to increase it 3 times.
          up to 750 hours.
          since version "-02" is only digitized and practically does not differ from the old one in fact, it is considered that the resource has remained unchanged.
          Engines are made from old stock and stock.
          This is true.
          To Kuznetsov previously had a fairly "not indirect" relationship.
          I have the right to say so.

        Why? Rocket engines work even less - there are no "ingenious products" among them either?
        Of course, a horse that has been pulling a cart for 25 years in a row, without major repairs and with minimal maintenance, is the only truly ingenious "engine". But we are, nevertheless, about human creations. And they, you know, are strictly limited by the existing achievements of science and technology. Therefore, engineers all the time have to sacrifice something for the sake of the main parameters of the technical specification. Motor resource is no exception.
