Production of the Tu-160 will continue

107
A decision was made to resume the production of Tu-160 (White Swan) strategic bomber-rocket-carrying bombers, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta With reference to the commander of the air force Viktor Bondarev.

Production of the Tu-160 will continue


“The special feature of the Tu-160 is the variable geometry of the wing, which allows you to select the optimum flight mode and save fuel. And the heavy strategist is distinguished by an unusually graceful contour of the fuselage and, one can say, graceful wings, ”the newspaper writes. In the west, he received the name Blackjack (Black Jack).

Main weapon modernized aircraft (Tu-160M) - "high-precision long-range cruise missiles, including with nuclear warheads." Maximum rocket-bomb load - 40 t.

A hypersonic cruise missile is being developed specifically for it, but now it is X-555 and the latest X-101 in non-nuclear equipment. The range of the last flight reaches 10 thousand. Km.

At the modernized Tu-160M, which will be launched by the Kazan Aviation Plant, only digital equipment is installed - dial gauges will be a thing of the past. They will be replaced by monitor screens.

There are no self-defense guns on the rocket carriers, but there are powerful EW systems - good, the dimensions of the machine allow it. With such protection, the aircraft becomes invulnerable to the vast majority of guided missiles.

“The EW is so powerful that it is not turned on to average power even during exercise,” say the experts. - Moreover, the enemy fighter radars will not see our swan at close range. The high-speed characteristics allow the heavy rocket carrier to get away from the interceptors long before reaching the visual contact. ”

Bondarev said that the Ministry of Defense will purchase at least 50 machines. "It will be purchased to recoup all the costs that will go to the reproduction of the Tu-160, at least 50 boards with time," - he said.

At the same time, he stressed that the purchase of “White Swan” will not affect the continuation of work on the creation of PAK DA. The project will not be suspended. “We have no right to do this,” he added.

Manufacturer Help: “The range of the Tu-160M with the maximum ammunition in weight is 10500 km. With a normal load - 14000 km. At the same time, the flight range of the cruise missiles that it carries on board reaches 10000 km.

The supersonic speed of the aircraft is over 2000 km / h. Ceiling -15600 meters. Crew - 4 person. Initially, the Tu-160 was to deliver long-range X-12 cruise missiles with fusion warheads to the 55 launch area. The upgraded aircraft will carry conventional missiles and bombs. "

        That's wonderful. The machine is decades ahead of its time, and with serious modernization it will serve Russia for a very long time.
        And the name matches - just handsome. Well, combat capabilities are a separate story. No wonder our "White Swan" is called "Black Jack" among the staff ...

            For some reason, no one touches on the possible modernization in the form of increasing countermeasures to fighter aircraft and AWACS aircraft. So for reflection !!! Perhaps the Tu-160M ​​will receive air-to-air missiles: ks-172, 9M317M. That is to say, long-range and over-long interception.

              A plane will cost 16 billion - one NK 32 engine for mass production will cost one and a half billion rubles, plus another complete re-equipment of the plant with new machines, materials, training new personnel and support for all subcontractors - that’s a trillion rubles.

                  I think, despite the exorbitism of this project, they will also rebuild the assembly line and start production. Moreover, I think so, if the conversation began, then it will all be very soon (if not already, somewhere at a shocking pace they are not building a new plant)
                  And later these new lines will come in handy in the construction of PAK DA.

                    According to my data, Bondareva simply carries in an incomprehensible direction on a level ground.
                    Money for defense orders until 2020 is allocated for the implementation of specific deliveries of specific types of weapons. Tu-160 is not in this list. The construction of 50 of these aircraft costs huge money and takes a lot of time. An hour per teaspoon in our situation will not work.
                    Where was he going to deliver them? Form new shelves? And where will they be based? In Ukrainian Uzin with Priluki or Kazakhstan Semipalatinsk? There are currently no suitable free lanes in Russia (the lane in Mozdok is simply killed in the trash, and it has become a bit close to the border in the current conditions).

                They can’t really collect the same Superjet (by the way, it flew by for the first time yesterday, the impression was from Lada Priora, but it’s great anyway, although it’s 70% imported), what can we really dream about Swans.
                About construction sites, finance, import substitution is no less topical.

            Factories do not sell military equipment to the state at cost, there is always a mark-up.
            Profitability of sales - the ratio of profit from sales to the cost of sales. And the cost includes R&D costs as well.
            In this case, it is more likely about payback. That is, when the profit of the plants exceeds the cost of R&D.

                Efficiency - the productivity of the use of resources in achieving a goal.

                And here plants, that state pays

                Factories produce products, we are talking about payback. When developing a new passenger plane, for example, a lot of money is spent on R&D, and this same plane pays off only after the release of a certain number of these airliners. When the net profit from the sale of airliners exceeds the R&D costs.

                  The plant will not operate at a loss and the state will pay for R&D (and much more necessary for the resumption of production).
                  Profitability refers to the one who invests, you are just trying hard to prove that the plant will do everything at its own expense, and the MO will pay only for finished products. This is, to say the least, unlikely.

      At least 50 new aircraft + 16 of those in service, total 66. Russia will have parity with the United States with B-1B over 60 aircraft.
      Still, the Tu-22M3 aircraft 30 (+ to those 40 that are in service) to withdraw from conservation

      In this case, in fact, a swan is an extremely dangerous bird.
      Firstly, one of the largest flying.
      Secondly, in the arsenal of a swan there is not only a beak, but also claws (tarpaulin jackets tear with one stroke into the flaps), but the wing is the most dangerous. A blow of the wing (fold) breaks the jaw of a wolf.
      So the world is peace, but it’s better not to succumb.

    The most important task is to restore the production technology of the TU-160, and a deep modernization of the aircraft is necessary, after all, and for almost 30 years in operation.

For example, in the GOSNII GA in Zhukovsky I was in the 80s IL-18 (laboratory), so it flew on the 3rd calendar (i.e. the actual flight time was more than 40 thousand flight hours) .... But this is more an exception than a rule ....

          For all airplanes and helicopters, upon release, resources and calendars are given: APPOINTED and CALENDAR and landing.
          During operation, various bulletins are carried out, including strength bulletins (based on the data obtained on stationary tests from the SibNII ... where the plane flies "EVERNO" during station tests).
          Therefore, during subsequent repairs to the aircraft, both CALENDAR and RESOURCE, including overhaul, increase.

          On liners was also like ours = 25, but thanks to the efforts of lobbyists they’ve thought up something - they give airlines leasing for 10 years. Leasing ends - they are offered a new one, and used ones after capital - they are boarded up in third countries (Asia, Africa ... well, our companies were among them. Toko Aeroflot is trying to take it according to European and state standards).

      The car is good, but very expensive to purchase, and most importantly in operation. We need a subsonic aircraft with an engine of the type developed by PD 14. The minimum weight at maximum range. Radar with AFAR, including in the tail. This will allow equipping the machine with long-range air-to-air missiles (as an option, a barrage interceptor, say for the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean). New EW tools. 24 t load. This is 12 KR for 2 tons each (for the future). The ability to base on runways from 1000-1200 m. The Tu-160 has none of this (except for electronic warfare), after a massive attack, it doesn’t have to sit down or fly up - 286 tons after all! I think you should not invest such a huge amount of money in reincarnation, while developing a new bomber. The only plus is the support and development of manufacturers, the preservation and training of personnel. But deep modernization must cope with this. In my opinion, this is a good disa, for our NATO ghana .. pid .. partners, oh!

        And how will they pay off?

        Very simple. Military equipment, like any other, is subject to business planning.
        To begin with, let's understand that we do not have a goal to build 50 stratobombers. Or 3 aircraft carriers. Or 50 Ratnik sets. All this is not an end, but a means.
        And the goal may be, for example, such - to incinerate the United States.
        But as a rule there are several goals at once. For example, to be able to incinerate the United States in a nuclear conflict, ditch 2 AUGs that crept from any direction in a non-nuclear conflict, troll England and Japan in peacetime, and please Venezuela with a military presence.
        You can build 100 mines of heavy ICBMs (we will incinerate the USA), a bunch of missile cruisers (troll England and Japan and participate in the destruction of the AUG) and aircraft carriers to cover the missile cruisers. It will cost some billion. You can build 50 Tu-160s - incinerate the United States, and in a non-nuclear conflict - kill the AUG (but there are also fighters for cover) in peacetime - troll England and Japan (Tu-95 vidmidiks are very good turns out) - it will cost so much billion.
        In general, it is necessary:
        a) Determine the range of tasks that we want to solve if necessary
        b) Identify various options (that is, outfits of forces) for solving these problems
        c) Determine the cost of these options.
        d) Choose the best option in terms of "cost / efficiency" and implement it
        Five Tu-160 will solve much less problems than 50 Tu-160. But at the same time, the plant must be built for at least 5 at least 50 aircraft. Accordingly, in the production of 5 aircraft, the price of completing the tasks that they can solve will become gold, but in the construction of 50, when the price of one aircraft falls, and the size of the tasks grow - that’s it :))

          Very simple. Military equipment, like any other, is subject to business planning.

          You can build 100 mines of heavy ICBMs (we will incinerate the USA), a bunch of missile cruisers (troll England and Japan and participate in the destruction of the AUG) and aircraft carriers to cover the missile cruisers. It will cost some billion. You can build 50 Tu-160s - incinerate the United States, and in a non-nuclear conflict - kill the AUG (but there are also fighters for cover) in peacetime - troll England and Japan (Tu-95 vidmidiks are very good turns out) - it will cost so much billion.

            You confuse this, and not even a little bit, but a lot, and a lot of it.
            Who orders military equipment? STATE. And what is a state?
            It can also be likened to a commercial enterprise, it has its own costs and expenses, but in this case military costs are the security of the company. Moreover, the state is forced to spend much more (as a percentage) on its security than an ordinary company. Do you know why? Because a commercial joint-stock company is under the protection of the state and the law of this state - if it is unlawful - and the company can count on state support. Police, prosecutors, prisons ... But the State must take care of its own security.

      Three center sections do not weld simultaneously. Previously, in the USSR, centerplans were laid in two to three months. There was only one chamber for welding a titanium center section at KAPO (now KAZ, it seems). What is it with now ??

    I always wrote, great car, well ahead of its time. and is now more relevant than ever. In terms of combat power, it is comparable to a nuclear submarine, but many times cheaper and faster. With a cruise missile range of 10000 km. (this is, for a moment, the range of the "Topol"), such a flying platform may not even leave the zone of our air defense!
    And if anything, then you can cover Cuba in a matter of hours.

    Good news, you can rejoice. Here are just a puppy’s delight borzapisets I can’t share:
    there are powerful electronic warfare systems - fortunately, the dimensions of the machine allow this. With such protection, the aircraft becomes invulnerable to the vast majority of guided missiles.
    And where will he defend himself from PRLS missiles aimed at active jamming stations?
    Sucking the whole screen with "milk" is one thing. But to shoot a trap in time, or to turn on a towed one in time is completely different.
    I don’t know how to do this without determining the distance to the rocket attacking you?

    It would be better if he said how much time it would take to prepare for the resumption of mass production and when about the first new serial (lead) aircraft made its first flight. From the 84th to the 87th, 4 production aircraft were built; from 1987 until the end of 1991, 19 new aircraft were put into service at the Priluki air base. And this is even under the mighty USSR, where there was a developed aviation industry and did not spare money for aviation. Now what? 50 planes, of course, is wonderful, but how long does it take you do not know? For example, Ulyanovsk Aviastar produces one, a maximum of two (this year), IL-476 per year, and today this is the limit, it is physically impossible to produce more. Here is such a reality

    so the replacement of "Bear" is still needed

    American cruisers "TIKHANDEROGA" 9500 displacement
    122 launch containers for Tomahawk cruise missile (option to quickly equip a nuclear warhead)

At least 100 yards for 50 pieces only the cost of aircraft in the conditions of the upcoming 15% optimizations in the Russian Ministry of Defense, which is already unobtrusively announced, is this or preparation for The third world war or spring stupefying the heads of some journalists.

    Constantly in articles I see this phrase about eye contact. What a VISUAL CONTACT, if the range of detection and launch of missiles is tens of kilometers. Or are writing articles all dreaming of close maneuvering combat?
