The Ministry of Defense has deployed long-range bombers to Syria. According to the press service of the military department, three Tu-22M3s landed at the Khmeimim airbase.


Three long-range Tu-22M3 bombers flew and landed at a Russian airbase in Syria. The Ministry of Defense emphasizes that the Tu-22M3 arrived in Khmeimim for the first time. This was made possible by the reconstruction of the second runway with its lengthening, new coating and installation of new light-signaling and radio-technical equipment. Now the airbase can receive aircraft of all types, including heavy ones.

In the military department, the transfer of bombers is explained by the need for aircraft crews to acquire practical skills in new geographical areas, in particular, over the Mediterranean Sea. Whether the Tu-22M3 will be used to attack militants in Syria is still unknown. However, we note that presidential elections are scheduled for May 26, 2021 in Syria, and it is possible that on the eve of their government army, with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, will deliver a series of strikes on places of concentration of terrorists in order to suppress provocations.

It is not known how long the bombers will stay at the Khmeimim airbase, the Ministry of Defense says that they will return to the airfields "after completing training tasks."

After completing training tasks for the development of airspace in the maritime zone of the Mediterranean Sea, long-range bombers will return to permanent airfields on the territory of the Russian Federation

    Here, and leave them there permanently to strengthen our presence in the Mediterranean.
    And instead of the "retired" aircraft, to produce additional new, modernized aircraft for the Aerospace Forces.

      New Tu-22M3 have not been produced since 1993. They are just being modernized. hi

        It’s a pity, a pity. We have not so many carcasses left to be satisfied with their number.
        But the modernization potential of the Tu-22M airframe is still for years and years.

              And in your country it generally contains speculation.
              For the Tu-22M3M, there is the X-32 and the Dagger.

              The first question is, is it "M" or "not M"? And at least one "M" has already been transferred to the troops?
              There are also many questions about the weapons you named. For example, why do we even need an X-32 with such characteristics.

            The production of the modernized NK-32 was resumed.
            They promise to install 4 for Tu-160 and 2 for Tu-22M3M.
            And they are going to unify avionics as much as possible.
            "Sharpness" is being developed.
            Apparently there is something else (Gremlin) - a year ago they wrote:
            Tests of a new hypersonic aircraft missile were recently carried out in Russia from the Tu-22M3 bomber-missile carrier. The missile is being created for an upgraded version of the Tu-22M3M aircraft, a source in the military-industrial complex told TASS.

            It is possible that the flight is one of the tests.
            As for the glider, yes, there are problems.
            The number of Tu-22M3 is gradually decreasing.

              This is where the question arises, but actually the alternatives to what? What is the tactical niche of these aircraft now? Especially considering the remaining amount. Many argue, even here in the comments, that the Su-34 could be a replacement for them.

                This is where the question arises, but actually the alternatives to what?

                - Tu-22M3M / product 45-03M - BACKFIRE-E - OKB im. A.N. Tupolev, research is being carried out on the modernization of the Tu-22M fleet in order to replace equipment and equip with high-precision conventional ammunition, as well as to extend the service life of the airframe up to 35 years... The aviation complex uses modern equipment based on a new element base developed by Gefest IT JSC - a complex of onboard equipment SVP-24-22 - and improved ergonomic parameters of the cockpit.
                Bomb armament, consisting of conventional and nuclear free-fall bombs with a total mass of up to 24.000 kg, is located in the fuselage (up to 12000 kg) and on four external suspension nodes on nine MBDZ-U9-502 lock beam holders (typical bomb load options - 69 FAB-250 or eight FAB-1500). In the future, it is possible to equip the Tu-22M3 aircraft with high-precision guided bombs, as well as new missile launchers to destroy ground and sea targets.

                Who else can carry 24 tons of bombs? Or at least 12t? wink
                X-32, Gremlin and Sharpness are also on the way.

                According to the head of the United Aircraft Building Corporation Yuri Slyusar, the modernization of Tu-22M3 combat aircraft into the Tu-22M3M version will begin in 2019. The first serial Tu-22M3M will go to the troops from 2021.

                It is quite possible that these 3 are Tu-22M3M. Are being tested.

                Especially considering the remaining amount.

                They write that the Tu-22M3 is 62 pcs. there is. This is a lot at the present time.

                Su-34 may be a replacement for them.

                  What destination? And why should they even drag so many free-falling ones? To level Dresden again with the ground?

                  Disable airfields? Will the enemy allow it?

                  X-32, Gremlin and Sharpness are also on the way.

                  X-32 - why it is needed at all is not clear in those dimensions. What characteristics should it have to justify such dimensions?
                  What prevents you from taking a mass-produced rocket, the same Onyx, and making its air version, for the carrier aircraft being produced now? Hindu example before your eyes.

                  They write that the Tu-22M3 is 62 pcs. there is. This is a lot at the present time.

                  They write that only half of them will go for modernization, and this is not a lot. And it is not clear how long this upgrade will take, nor how long they will last after it, and most importantly with what kind of weapons. Well, he would have delivered 12 supersonic anti-ship missiles to the launch line, but 2 ... only 2 for such a huge aircraft, it's just not serious.

                  Su-34 may be a replacement for them.
                  Seriously? bully

                  Seriously. The range is shorter, but the Tu-22M3 will also need to be refueled in the air with the maximum load of weapons.
                  The carrying capacity is less - but modern ASP and dimensions will be smaller than the same X-32, which was not mentioned at night. Yes, and it is necessary to develop them for the aircraft produced today in the first place. In addition, it can perform significantly more functions. For example, it is much more logical to drive the same barmaleev across the desert with a Su-34 than with a long-range bomber.

                  No, it can theoretically pose a serious threat, but then it must be armed with modern ASPs.

                    No, it can theoretically pose a serious threat, but then it must be armed accordingly with modern ASP.

                    This is how modern ASPs do the same.
                    About the number, IMHO, they do not want to frighten the West once again.
                    Until half is done, maybe they will already decide to give up.

                    X-32 - why it is needed at all is not clear in those dimensions. What characteristics should it have to justify such dimensions?

                    The X-32 is almost completely identical in appearance to the X-22, with a few exceptions. However, the "insides" of the missiles are very different. The X-32 uses a significantly improved starting and sustainer engine. The starting engine now allows you to "lift" the rocket after launch to an altitude of about 40 (!) Kilometers. At this altitude, the air density is about the same as the density of the Martian atmosphere and the rocket practically does not encounter air resistance, which makes it possible to dramatically increase both the speed and range of flight. Reportedly, the speed of the X-32 has increased to 5400 km / h - more than 5M! The range of application, according to various estimates, is up to 1000 kilometers.

                    Flies as high and fast as it should. WITH YABCH. Try to shoot down.

          Shoigu does not think so and does the right thing. It needs a practical application.

          MOSCOW, May 21 - RIA Novosti. More than 300 types of weapons were tested in Syria, many of them, thanks to these tests, were brought "to the highest level", but there were also "unpleasant surprises," said Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu as part of the New Knowledge marathon.

          “What did Syria give us? I’ll tell you frankly that we encountered a very large number of unpleasant surprises there. I may call them softly. A dozen were simply removed from service altogether and ceased to be produced, "the minister said.



          This also applies to communication systems, and electronic warfare, and reconnaissance, and strike systems.

          The minister added that it is best to test weapons in a war, since "state tests, military tests, army tests are all, of course, good, but the main assessment is still put on the record book there."

            Specifically, Syria gave the "strategists" only the testing of the launch of the X-102 ...... in order to work out the CD for the Tu22M3, just the range is needed. You don't need to fly to SAR for this. You can (and should) do this from Mozdok. or over the Caspian. Or maybe only the latest version of Tu22M3M can do this ... which is 1 copy and it was not announced that it flew to the SAR. And Tu22M3 is a specialized missile carrier against ships and missile launchers; it has one X-22 (There will be X32) and free-fall bombs. And today he is the carrier of the heaviest bomb in 6 tons .... it does not fit anywhere else.

                Well, because if a weapon can only be tested exclusively in war, then
                1. Funds spent on state tests, tests in the troops were spent on the wind. But this is still a trifle.
                2. If you can check weapons only in practice, then this leads to a decrease in defense capability and you will have to pay for it with your lives.

                It is not obvious that the use of weapons in a conflict can reveal some nuances and shortcomings about which they did not know or did not speak before and require some modifications. But the minister says that according to the test results, the devil knows what, in principle, should not be. And if this happens, then the minister should not happily report how wonderful it was that it was discovered during the hostilities, for a second, people in Syria are actually dying, and the system should be rebuilt in such a way that this does not happen again, so that the samples are unusable or inoperable. were not accepted or identified during the war ...

          But these are "old" Tu ... hardly.

          "One of the subdivisions of the Era Technopolis is developing new improved sighting complex "Hephaestus" for aircraft, which will even more significantly increase the accuracy of the use of unguided ammunition, already corresponding to the accuracy of the "high-precision", - said the interlocutor of the agency (TASS).
          The development of the SVP-24 computers was carried out within the framework of the Metronome R&D project in order to increase the combat capabilities of the Su-24M front-line bomber. Later, development work was carried out to prepare a unified technology for the modernization of various aircraft and helicopters. As part of the Syrian campaign, Hephaestus was also used on long-range Tu-22M3 bombers.

        No delight. Simply, if you don't know, Tu-22M in the west is called "the killer of aircraft carriers", that's "hello AUG". And regarding the reduction of the response time - look at the map if you know what it is. Just compare how far the Tu-22M from Russia has to travel to the Mediterranean Sea and how far from Syria. Accordingly, if necessary, the Tu-22M will come to the specified area much faster, simultaneously saving resources and fuel, or increasing the loitering time.

            The 6 Dagger missiles are very dangerous. However, the air defense AUG and the Kh-32 missiles go well. And what is loitering - patrolling in a given area - is it clearer to you, are you our illiterate?

              6 rockets "Dagger"

              Does the Tu-22m3 already have a "Dagger"? Yes, and 2 pieces per plane?
              Are the X-32s good at AUG air defense? Could Aegis himself be too tough for them? And only 3 Tu-22m3 is enough for the missiles to overcome the AUG air defense and defeat the AVM?
              So Tu-22m3 is also patrolling in a given area? What purpose?

              Air defense AUG and X-32 missiles pass well.

              so they won't even be allowed to visit, because the whole royal army will act there at once against three musketeers and possibly several target illumination stations. In my opinion, all our "illumination" will be extinguished immediately.
              and how fatal is it even for a few daggers or an X-32 to hit an aircraft carrier?
              will incapacitate, but will not drown or will not make it unusable, and if there is a booze with the AUG, it is necessary to drown for sure (more missiles) or beat the special warhead, and then all the events are increasing.

    The modernization of the Tu-22M3M is proceeding extremely slowly, the squadron of these aircraft with the DAGGER hypersonic missile, if required, can easily sink the entire sixth US fleet in the Mediterranean.

    And this is nothing that the united NATO squadron, led by Lizka, was supposed to leave England on Sunday. She will not go to the NSR, so they will look for her in Mediterranean, not the same enemies can fly along our borders. go over, sobering. They only understand power.

    the acquisition by aircraft crews of practical skills in new geographic areas, in particular over the Mediterranean Sea.

    Everything is correct. NATO members are climbing into the Black Sea, we are their strategists in the Mediterranean. A subtle hint of fat circumstances. As they like to say in the West, "we are sending a signal."

    IMHO, it's not about confronting the NATO fleet in the Mediterranean - the Tu-22M is too easy a target for such a density of naval air defense systems in such a limited theater of operations. And here is the opportunity as standard lifting 8 bombs of 1500 kg caliber is just what you need to grind the Barmaley bunkers into dust ...

    This was made possible by the reconstruction of the second runway with its lengthening, new coating and installation of new light-signaling and radio-technical equipment. Now the airbase can receive aircraft of all types, including heavy ones.
