Kazan Aviation Plant launched two Tu-160M ​​"White Swan" strategic missile carriers for flight tests at once

Two Russian strategic missile carriers Tu-160M ​​entered the flight test phase at once. The first mass-produced Tu-160M ​​made from scratch and a combat missile carrier, which underwent a deep modernization to the Tu-160M ​​level, were transferred to the flight test station of the Kazan Aviation Plant. This was reported by the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation.


Two Russian strategists will undergo the necessary tests of systems and engines, as well as on-board equipment. After the end of the tests, they will return to the plant for painting, after which they will be transferred to the Far aviation VKS RF. The Tu-160M ​​combatant, which has undergone modernization, will return to its native one, but where the new aircraft, built as part of the reproduction program, will go, is still unknown.

As previously reported, a total of 160 Tu-15 combat missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces should be upgraded to the Tu-160M ​​level, and ten new Tu-2027M ​​strategists should be built by 160 with deliveries starting in 2023. The KLA promises to increase the production of missile carriers.

The Tu-160 is the most important part of Russia's nuclear triad, so the modernization of combat vehicles and the resumption of production of these strategic bombers is our priority task. The updated missile carriers surpass their predecessors in their characteristics, they received new on-board radio-electronic equipment, NK-32-02 engines and other systems

- said the head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov.

Deeply modernized Tu-160M ​​and new-built aircraft receive new flight and navigation equipment, an on-board communications system, a control system, a radar station, an electronic countermeasures complex, new NK-32-02 engines (series 2), the production of which has been restored in Samara (JSC " UEC-Kuznetsov), as well as new weapons.

    It would be time to take care of the construction of hangars for such pricheks and more reliable protection of their airfields.
    Good luck to them in military work. hi

      And what about the hangar, is it impossible to strike? Burn down along with the hangars. In addition, in the event of an urgent departure (removal from the impact) it is much more problematic to taxi out of the hangar than from an open parking lot (you will need to pull them out with tractors). Such "birds" can now be saved only by dispersal with embankment of parking lots, and in Engels they are lined up, wing to wing. In Kipelovo, in the dispersal zone, the distance between the aircraft stands (Tu-95RTs) was about 300 meters and they were not located in one line. And hangars are used only for maintenance and repair at ARP

        And what about the hangar, it’s impossible to strike? ...

        It is possible, no one argues. But it’s one thing when a shell hit one hangar and damaged one bird, while the rest remained intact in their hangars, and another thing when a dozen of such expensive feathers stand wing to wing in an open area and the spread of fragments of one shell covers all ten at once.

        As they say, feel the difference and appreciate the flight of thought, especially when, say, ten birds are at stake with a total value of 160 billion rubles (in 2018 prices). This is where knowledge of accounting and a comparison of the cost of ten well-protected concrete hangars and ten of the most modern and stuffed with expensive equipment "birds" of long-range aviation come in handy.

        ... And the hangars are used only for maintenance and repair at the ARP

        Military science, like engineering, does not stand still, and if earlier something was used only for one purpose, then in the present and future it can already be used in a wider range.
        Who could have imagined before that from the front, located more than 700 kilometers away, they would fly to distant rear airfields. And now it's flying.
        So, it is necessary for domestic military commanders to move their brains faster and make decisions more quickly, and not rely on the fact that they will not fly because they are far away.

        They will burn down with and without a hangar in case of a serious hit. But it will definitely save the dirty tricks from small drones. In the USSR, everything has long been invented, only the form factor is needed for the Tu-160 and Tu-95.

      Yes, they don’t make hangars for strategists anywhere. And it's not even about the size. The strategist, if anything, should start in minutes, but this cannot be done from the hangar. Have you ever seen how planes are taken out of hangars? Here it is necessary to make shafts that would be protected from fragments. Well, it's already posted here. It looks like they are already doing it.

        It is very difficult to actually "disperse" dozens of such large platforms. Especially when taking into account, at a minimum, the need to ensure their high-quality pre-flight preparation (not to mention "other" maintenance ...) and no less reliable security and defense.

          Ex-soldier, what a mess? The fact that the entire huge NATO satellite and AWACS grouping plows like a 404 and namniks, and in 10 months, the NVO found a couple of micro-loopholes to shoot UAVs that did not in any way affect the work of YES or our actions, while repelling THOUSANDS of NATO attacks, demonstrating inaccessible to the rest of humanity the level of air defense - you call it a "mess"wassat?
          I’m really sitting on a corporate, let me think I’ll go to the VO forum for a couple of seconds, all of a sudden, at least now they’re not whining, but they’re looking forward to a fantastic update of the most powerful nuclear triad on the planet, after all, 22 new ICBMs, two Tu-160Ms, one SSBN plus in May the carrier of eight thermonuclear "Poseidons" (and this is not to mention thousands of units of other equipment, three diesel-electric submarines, another nuclear submarine, etc.) - but no, it's still something "wrong" for someone, impenetrable whining, especially among the late Soviet educated people, rather their meager male stratum of 5% of the population. In young people 16-35, this is practically not observed.
          Okay, all with the Coming, be more cheerful.

            The question is easy, and the answer is simple - a systemic mess ...

            And there is no need to change topics if there are no intelligible counterarguments. The aforementioned "satellite constellations and the presence of AWACS platforms, the network is their means of IMPLEMENTING and STRENGTHENING THE SYSTEMIC SHADOW in the field of global security. Practiced by" IMI - specifically Uncle Sam, just in case, I remind you once again, as MINIMUM since April 1999. With the beginning of the "peacekeeping" bombing of Yugoslavia and the WTO strikes on its territory ...

            In particular, with the task of general destabilization of the situation in the Balkans, as a "powder keg" of Europe. Already, AGAIN, GLOVE, post-Helsinki and post-Yalta-Potsdam Europe ...

            Which, during the so-called. "détente", dared to show at least the "appearance" of attempts to gain relative autonomy and reduce dependence on the United States ...

            Is there something wrong?... Are there conceptual objections?.. Acre of boring reproaches to opponents for some "leftist twists"?..

            In short, it is not worthwhile, raising the question of the creation by "they" of a certain, "workable" SYSTEM, - i.e. the concept of FIRST OF ALL SOCIAL, supposedly "capable of overcoming" the mess, running away into purely military, engineering, technical, etc., in other words, into the TOOLS used SPECIFICALLY by them, to plant the MESS...

            With the task (and not the goal ...) of ensuring THEIR THEIR OWN survival ...

      Another language turns about the impoverished Union with an underdeveloped African level of infrastructure to speak, in 70 years less than 320 thousand km of paved roads were built, kilometer-long queues and a total shortage of everything, a disgrace to the whole world, housing for 1 point, according to the State Statistics Service, in 1989 there were 15 sq m, in the inbicile Soviet gold reserves for 1991, only 290 tons of gold remained, plus gigantic debts to the London and Paris club of creditors, and the army that remained from the USSR - even with micro-Chechnya suffered in two Chechen ones in the 90s - that's what was left of the Union.
      Over 20 years, all production assets have been updated several times, strategic nuclear forces have been updated by 88%, new 800 thousand km of roads with hard surface have been built (2,5 times more than in the RSFSR over 69 years), the volume of housing per capita has increased from 15 sq m to 29 sq m, paid off all debts for all 15 republics, increased metal gold in the SchVR from 290 tons in 91m and ZERO in 99m to 2400 tons in 2022, increased the cement capacity of 45 million tons of the RSFSR (the entire Union has 77 million per there was a peak) up to 105-107 million tons in one Russian Federation, they fantastically transformed the infrastructure of all cities (you can look at the RBS channel: Russia-It was-It began to look, forests of cities with satellite images of a million objects built over 20 years, and compare with Soviet films of the 1980s famous streets of the cities of the RSFSR, which everything was dilapidated), increased the port infrastructure from ~ 500 million tons of the RSFSR to 1 billion tons of RF-2021, increased the length of the railway by almost one and a half times, increased the production of chicken by 300%, and one and a half times the production of pork, increased steel production by one and a half times, I’m generally silent on grain, they increased the production of electric power by almost 10% compared to the peak of the RSFSR, created from scratch a bunch of industries that did not exist not only in the RSFSR, but some even did not exist in the Union, reached the peak Soviet rate of production of nuclear submarines and diesel-electric submarines , increased meat consumption per day of the population from the Soviet peak of 51 kg per year to 79 kg per year (2021), increased the number of factories with a staff of 500 chk from 13342 at the peak of 1991 (USSR State Statistics Service) to 18300 at the beginning of 2022 (Ministry of Industry and Trade), annually we build 300-350 new productions and further down the list.
      Here is more than half an hour with a limit of several seconds for a new production - new productions built only for 11 months of 2022 are listed:

Stop lying about GDP. In the 50s and 60s, the GDP of the USSR was about 45 percent of the United States and was in second place in the world. Have you looked at it for a long time, where is it now? 11th place. And per capita 61st. The USSR was a superpower, and Russia is now finishing off the remnants left from the USSR.

      Engines? Have you ever seen at least 50 meters working TU-160?
      Overturning trucks that hit the rear of the plane in various action movies are a trifle.

    Can anyone comment on this about building from scratch? I read that after all it was still a Movetian backlog of the fuselage

      It ended on the previous one, and this is the first serial one.

        there were two sets of them in different degrees of assembly. the one that was more complete was already almost ready, and the second one was somehow assembled. what will happen next - it is not known - cooking titanium and engines is not the most difficult thing there ...

          Actually, just the welding of a titanium semi-beam and the production of engines are the most basic.
          And so they assembled a new plane, and not from kits

    Oppa. That's it, the Ministry of Defense does not need 50 sides anymore?

    It would be nice to conduct tests for the benefit of the cause, fly over Stale, at the same time unhook the cargo there ...

    Kazan Aviation Plant launched two Tu-160M ​​"White Swan" strategic missile carriers for flight tests at once

    Americans, where is your updated B-2, F-22 ...
    We still fly TU-95, TU-22M3, TU-160, etc.

    Ukraine is not only a machine for laundering WESTERN money, but also for working out military technologies, at the expense of the lives of the Ukrainian people.

    Well done our Kazanians, in this regard, our engineers and production workers working at this enterprise should raise their wages, I think.

    Hmm ... If Engels is not defended, then it is better to overtake them all somewhere beyond the Urals.
