Tu-95MS - a strategic bomber, not in a hurry to rest


The fastest aircraft with turboprop engines in the world is the domestic Tu-95, which has now been transformed into the Tu-95MS. This strategic bomber has a long, multi-year история, in which there is a place for unique tests - the drop of an atomic bomb over the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. It was the most powerful explosion ever made by man. As the announcer said on the footage of the chronicle, even heavy cloud cover did not prevent the glow from being visible a thousand kilometers from the epicenter of the explosion.

The bearer of the "Tsar Bomba" left his appearance practically unchanged. At the same time, over the years of its operation in the USSR Air Force, and now in the Russian Aerospace Forces, its “stuffing” has changed significantly. We are talking about the weapons of a strategic aircraft aviation, and its on-board equipment - navigation, communication, control systems weapons.

The plane is in no hurry for a well-deserved rest, for rest, because there is still work for it. The tension in the world is growing, and our country, which in the West has already been openly included in the list of the main enemies, cannot look indifferently at how the enemy’s infrastructure is being improved, including on the outskirts of the Russian borders. To defend Russian interests, the Tu-95MS is a serious argument with a huge resource.

Tu-95MS missile carriers continue to carry out long-range patrols, including airspace over the Atlantic, the Arctic and Pacific Oceans - where a retaliatory strike can be launched from if the crews receive an appropriate order.

    I wonder if they have new propellers or from the 50s, and is it possible to install something more modern (smaller diameter with a large number of blades ...). It turned out to be a painfully noisy machine, you can do without locators with sound pickups alone (a joke, of course, but ...).

      I live in the Far East from Ukrainka constantly flying overhead. The pair went to the 95s and IL-78, of course, on duty with a tanker, without IL-78 it means a training flight. They will fly around in circles.
      I don't know who the smart one is running this super loud plane joke. Don't repeat stupid things.

        As a child, they also wound circles above me (also takeoff / landing long-range drive) and the 142nd and 95th, and I know firsthand how glass tries to jump out of the window frame - only the Mi-6 flight at low altitude was worse

        started this joke about a super loud plane
        well as a joke. In 93-93, when I served in Mongokhto, my unit was a kilometer from the take-off. So when the Tu-142s took off, the walls in the barracks were shaking if anything))))
        right here -

        roared in general notably! No wonder our "sworn friends" assigned him a code name - "Bear". Now I do not know. Maybe there's something wrong with the screws. But then it was

        It seems they wrote, but they don’t differ much in appearance - which means they probably make the same noise

          There is such a mode ..... at such speeds they will make noise ..... I, on the other hand, was surprised that the screws on Antey are different

            Interesting. It will be necessary to read what is the difference and why. I did not know.

                Well, this is understandable, but what are the changes in the width (length) of the blades or just different pitch angles.

              Most likely optimization for different high-speed modes.

      When Tu-142 was shown a few days ago, well, the same thing, then the right external engine had different propellers

    Interestingly, he gives a good light on air defense, is it possible to smuggle something else in his shadow or divert attention to them?

      He has tasks long before the air defense to drop the gifts. There's no difference how it glows. For 2-5 thousand km to the target it does not matter

      And what's the point?
      It was different. During the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese discovered a single B-52. They raised a couple of MiGs to intercept. It turned out that the Americans used a camouflage technique in close formation, there were 4 F-4s on the screen, they gave a mark as from one large aircraft, and even at the appropriate speed.

    Once I flew a Tu-4 for about 114 hours. There is a terrible vibration in the cabin. To the teeth grinding. Moreover, she seemed to 'walk' around the cabin, periodically changing in frequency and amplitude. In general, the feeling of flying the most disgusting.
    I wonder if there are similar vibrations in the cockpit of Tu-95 pilots and how they endure them during 10-15 hours of combat flight.
    Pilots! Tell me. drinks

      Constant vibration will very quickly knock out the resource of the airframe. You are most likely just unlucky.

          The simplest thing that comes to mind is almost the entire flight in a turbulent zone. You can, of course, fantasize for exotic reasons, such as the plane was accidentally loaded so that it began to resonate, but most likely something simple that I simply don’t know.

            And if you don't know, why are you commenting? I'm interested in the opinion of those who KNOW.
