Day of Long-Range Aviation of the Russian Federation: Retrofitted strategic bomber Tu-95MS carried out a joint flight with the UAV

69

Today Russia celebrates the Day of the Far aviation Videoconferencing of Russia. Long-range aviation is one of the most important elements of both the country's Aerospace Forces itself and all structures of national security. At the same time, an important factor in ensuring this kind of security is the development of long-range aviation.


Today it became known that one of the stages in the development of the DA VKS RF was a kind of integration when performing a test flight mission with a Tu-95MS strategic bomber and a drone.

Information Service TASS reports that such tests were carried out for the retrofitted Tu-95.

Experts suggest that we can talk about joint tests of the "strategist" with the heavy attack UAV "Okhotnik". Officially, this information has not yet been confirmed, but the interlocutor of the news agency "did not rule out such tests in the future."

During these tests, the interaction of the Tu-95MS with a combat drone was tested. The Tu-95MS was actually used as an operations center to control the actions of an unmanned aerial vehicle.

It is noted that for carrying out this kind of tests, the strategic missile carrier Tu-95MS was additionally equipped with special equipment, which made it possible to communicate with the drone through a secure data transmission channel from one side to another.
Such interaction of the "strategic missile carrier - UAV" level in the future can become a big step forward, including important for the implementation of aerial reconnaissance. A drone moving at high speed can also act as a kind of decoy target for enemy air defense systems.

Previously, the Okhotnik drone was tested with the fifth generation Su-57 fighter. The joint trials were found to be successful.

For your information:

Long-Range Aviation Day in Russia was introduced into the festive military calendar in 1999. Then it took place by order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force, Anatoly Kornukov. Long-range aviation acts as a strategic reserve of the Supreme High Command of the Russian Federation.

    And explain to me, small gram, what is the catch of these joint flights of a drone and an airplane.
    All right, an additional operator would sit on the plane, and even a single-seat fighter is clinging to a pair.
    What for ?
    Or is it because there are no long-distance communication systems and the plane is needed only to keep the drone always in the radio visibility zone?

      As an option - additional reconnaissance of the target. Or as a carrier of an anti-radar missile. Well, in general it is now kind of "fashionable".
      And with control via satellites, everything is really bad with us.
      Another question is whether the "Hunter" has enough range to interact with the "strategist".

        Everyone involved in YES health, professionalism, luck and well-being!
        With regards to the news ... No, the fact that today is YES Day is not news. I'm talking about it:
        "... This information has not yet been officially confirmed, but the source of the news agency" did not rule out this kind of testing in the future "..." belay Stunned ... "interlocutor"!
        As for your joke (in which there is some joke), yes, perhaps, they try the "Bear" as a laboratory, a platform ... This time.
        Two, - a hint was sounded in the comments, - the satellite control of the UAV is not sufficiently stable, reliable, operational (this is not a statement, but only my speculations).
        Three. The range of the UAV. Refueling in the air, perhaps, will rarely be justified, it is possible (although the adversaries are working on this). Let the specialists decide whether this option is necessary for our strike UAV, based on the range of tasks assigned to them.
        And, I think, there is no need to rigidly tie the strikers to the Carcass. I will try to argue ... I hope that ground mobility is incorporated into the design of the strike UAVs, i.e. it allows you to HIDDENLY (in a hangar) quickly disassemble, pack in shipping containers, transport, assemble , lift into the air from the runway from which the Tu-95 cannot take off ... repeat
        That is, the plot is as follows: the 95th is in his den, at the point of permanent deployment (there are not so many of them left), and the UAVs are relocated at the right time (covertly or demonstratively, depending on the task) to the planned theater of operations. not about tasks in the strategic nuclear forces, about tasks along the perimeter of our borders. (although, why not to Cuba, Venezuela, oh!) Agree, everything is not calmer there ... the Caucasus region, the South-Western borders, the Baltic states ... there, perhaps, even without leaving the territory of the Russian Federation in / sl-mi MO (pilots, operators of Tu-95), it will be possible to effectively "teleport" the strike potential.
        The second promising topic for the strategic-UAV ligament is the tasks of the MA.PLA (anti-submarine aviation).

        So far, of course, there is nothing to discuss, but it is interesting to hear from experts about possible prospects. hi

      I join in congratulating all those involved in YES. And the topic you touched upon in the commentary (a protection order from "Hunters" for the Tu-95 MS) is quite suitable for itself! And if (for now!) The "Hunters" cannot accompany the Tu-95 along the entire route of their flight (in terms of fuel limiting the flight range), then the second tempting topic is already within the reach of the "Hunters". I mean the topic of creating a "Hunter" - a border guard. That is, to put the same interface equipment on naval aircraft, and fly out to intercept - escort NATO reconnaissance aircraft over the Black, Baltic and Barents Seas. First, under the control of the "lead" aircraft with a pilot, and then in general alone (that is, under the control of the coastal command post). Distances are small (neutral waters along our borders). I can imagine what a howl will rise in the camp of "tolerant" democracy! lol

            it was this "Circus" that managed to bomb the Chernovodsky bridge across the Danube at the very beginning of the Great Patriotic War.

            When "Zveno-SPB" appeared (exactly it is in the lower picture), it was no longer considered a circus. And they bombed not only this bridge.
            The use of the existing machines was continued. On August 17, 6 I-16s successfully bombed the floating dock in Constanta. At the end of the month, dive bombers were used to destroy the crossings across the Dnieper. The importance of the assignment lay in the strategic importance of these crossings and in the possibility of a significant containment of the German offensive. On August 28, two TB-3s took off from the Yevpatoria airfield and headed for the Zaporozhye region. At dawn, thirty kilometers from the city, the I-16 was uncoupled. The raid was sudden and accurate, all four left without loss. On September 8, Zveno-SPB, in cooperation with Yak-1 escort fighters, destroyed the ferry near Berislav. One Yak-1 and one I-16 did not return. The next day, after a successful bombing, four I-16s shot down 2 Bf.109 in aerial combat.

            Subsequent military operations of the "suspension" took place in the conditions of an ever worsening combat situation for the Soviet side. At the end of September, German troops began advancing in the northern part of Crimea. All available air forces were used to contain the enemy, even those means that were intended for delivering high-precision strikes behind enemy lines. TB-3s were now often used only to lift heavily loaded I-16 bombs - fighters themselves with two 250 kg bombs could not take off. In these difficult combat conditions, combat losses also increased. On October 1, 1941, the commander of a squadron of outboard aircraft Arseny Shubikov died in an air battle. Further use of the outboard I-16 is becoming sporadic and combat reports are becoming less common. It is only known for certain that the I-16 outboard fighters were also used in 1942. In total, several more than 30 sorties were made, which, in terms of their high efficiency, became one of the most successful military actions of Soviet aviation.

    - a repeater, it would be understandable, but they have a "step forward". Raving ...

        the idea of ​​the "Hunter" -the border guard in a green cap

        "Hunter" in its current form will not be received
        in the troops, this is not even a prototype, but for now
        technology development platform.
        When at least a prototype appears, then
        decide where to use it. But I will say now -
        for border affairs, what is now called UAV
        "Hunter" cannot be used, it is very expensive.
        And what you call "intercept-escort"
        no one needs it, these are not only simple "show-offs", but also
        general imitation of media activities
        and incompetent ordinary people.
        And about the "cons" I'm not worried, they are put by those who do not have
        arguments, and who cannot express their thoughts in words.

          And here I have a number of counterarguments for you:
          1. Expensive.
          If we consider the idea as a whole, we will see that it is not so expensive. First, there is no need to train a pilot in a school for 5 years (and this is already a lot of money). Secondly, in today's aviation, there are not enough pilots (Shoigu won, to increase prestige, ordered girls to recruit crying ). Thirdly, raising the "Hunters" to escort NATO's "Poseidons" will save the resource of active combat interceptors (and this is also money). Fourthly, it will be possible to slightly tweak the "Instructions for air defense crews on duty" (in the sense of reducing the "twitch for every sneeze" in coastal waters).
          2. Psychology. Here's a huge bonus. For the reaction of any Dons in Poseidons will be completely different. When a piece of iron-robot hangs on your tail, then who knows what flight program was put into it?!?
          For example, if not a Su-24, but an aerial robot-border guard called Hunter, flew over the notorious "Donald Cook", the news feed would have completely different colors.
          Something like that.

            we need the escorts of any "Poseidns", this
            the same usual imitation of activity, and nothing
            more.
            Interceptions are needed in cases of violation of the state border,
            and not the fact that every intruder will be shot down.
            But that's not even the point, the point is that the UAV class
            We don't have a "hunter", and it won't be soon, if at all
            it will come to deliveries to the troops. In general, do not
            strain and come up with something about "Hunter", his
            simply no.
            And you came up with a great idea about the girls ...

              Thanks for the answer. I hope you understand. Your grounded practical realism is quite adequate. However, the "Hunter" is slowly gaining its flight hours. And the topic is not covered. And the 21st century is already in the yard, like everything is in the vein.
              By the way, tat nadys Gen. Designer Yak-130 and Orion Dolzhenkov N.N. expressed that it is time (would) to introduce drones into the staff of air regiments. So here I was two years ago here (on VO) voiced this idea. For example, why not send a "spark", but "Outpost R" for weather reconnaissance (before the start of flights)? All videos "Outpost" will throw off in the pre-flight training class in color. What are the problems?
              But conservatism in Russia is such a hard-alloy argument that "... not every bird can reach the middle of the Dnieper" recourse

                It will not work ... since it will be necessary to go to the piloting zones (determine the nature of cloudiness,. Nature, tendency, wind "to break through the NG, VG clouds, visibility, conditions (bumpiness), etc. and there are at least 3-4 such zones.
                To "go" to the nearest polygon there is practically the same thing .. "to define".
                In the aerodrome area, check the operability of all RTS systems (drive, ARP, RSBN, course-glide paths) and with both courses ... if there is both a Cathet and SP-50 at the aerodrome, then you will need to enter with both systems. wink
                So if you "send" the Outpost to the RP, then just ... by the end of the starting time it will sit down laughing drinks

                  And since the idea of ​​the UAV in the staff of the air regiments "hooked", that is, what to discuss.
                  1. For my beloved horse Tu-22 M3 (and other Tu-shek), I probably agree that the "Outpost" will not pull. But for hawks, attack aircraft and Su-24 is quite. If time is so pressing, then you need TWO "Outposts". And release them 3 hours before the start of flights. The one that checks the distant flight zones flies out first. Who are neighbors - second. And this second one immediately checks the entire RTS clip (drive, RSBN ... and further down the list), and then goes to its zones.
                  From my airfield "Outpost" worked on Darts. So he gave out an online picture for the panel of judges (and did not bring with him a flash drive with the footage of the Video, or, God forbid, and save the film). So Makar, having sent everything to the screens in the control room, they can return on foot, and the first combat flights will already be raised.
                  Now on the Polygon. Send a pair of Orlan-10 to the staff of the polygon team. Fortunately, they have already been tested in all poses (and even in the DB near the Mediterranean Sea). And they riveted enough of them, and Kolomna is stamping operators on the stream. And when the regiment is working on the Polygon, hang "Orlan" a little to the side at H = 1,5 km and cut it into a narrow rectangle of the echelon, let it write out its eights there. With its 12 hours of "hovering", it covers one and a half times any flight shift. And the video picture (as well as "Outpost") is sent online to the KDP. The squadron commander and the Kompolka can see the successes and failures of their pupils in a comfortable chair, drinking tea in a bite with chocolate lol
                  And if the "Orlan" is still taught to draw a line of combat contact on the screen and send it to the pilots in the air, assigning targets for destruction, then we are entering the 21st century without too much fanfare.
                  Once again sincerely drinks

        But tell me, will you reject the idea of ​​a "Hunter" -the border guard in a green cap on the move? And, if yes, why? Thank you in advance.

        Victor, and I will also connect to your conversation ...dear Bez 310 in his koment right in absolutely everything.
        Well, as a "border guard" ... you can try ... but then what kind of "locator" should be put on it, so that he could detect at least something and someone .... and identification? And the "communication" equipment? And maneuverability?
        And the pilot on the fighter has a double task - and "accompany the intruder", and even at the same time the UAV .. to control .. that would be somewhere ..... "did not fly" ... like Vasily Tsimbal wink

          Defending my idea of ​​an aerial robot in a green cap. Like a gritsa, I "gave birth" to her, and I should protect yes
          1. Dimensions (well, that is, for installing a locator and other necessary equipment).
          The caustic and meticulous guys from the Global Adventure quickly figured out that "the Hunter has dimensions that are almost the same as the Su-34 wink ... And if you also take into account that the UAV does not have a cockpit at all (with all its catapults, thrusters, RUSs, pedals and a dashboard), then the place for the locator is above the roof. And if we add here the uselessness of any oxygen equipment, an anti-overload automatic pressure device, all kinds of flashlight emergency release squibs, etc., etc., then it becomes clear that there are considerable reserves.
          2. Control equipment for the "Hunter".
          There is and is already being rolled in. Confirmed by the officialdom on joint flights with the Su-57 and Tu-95 MS as presented by TASS.
          3. Secure communication equipment.
          There is. And it is already in full use, for example, on the Su-35. That it is used in "Hunter" - see the same TASS calculations.

          In short, everything is almost ready. And how to put on a green cap (that is, the commissioning plan) let the people in large stripes decide. And we only give a little hint from below.
          You can drive from the border not only the Dons in the Poseidons, but also various inflated boats (such as the Donald Cook). And if something happens, it’s a piece of iron. You can still rivet. But the major who hit the water of the Black Sea is still looking for. And there is no way to return it for the family.
          Something like that.
