American B-52H equipped with new missiles JASSM-ER

44
The Pentagon decided to equip the strategic bombers B-52H Stratofortress, whose average age is 54, with new cruise missiles with a long range of flight, reports Look with reference to the resource "N + 1".




“The US Air Force signed a contract with Lockheed Martin for equipping the bombers with JASSM-ER missiles. The amount of the transaction amounted to 9,1 million dollars, ”writes the publication.

As expected, “as a result of the modification, the aircraft will be able to carry new cruise missiles on the underwing points of the suspension, as well as in the internal armaments compartments, for which new digital carousel-type dumping systems will be installed,” the portal reports.

Currently, bombers can carry "missiles created on the basis of nuclear AGM-86 ALCM, as well as basic JASSM."

Previously, the B-52H was upgraded to JASSM cruise missiles, which can be launched underwing from the suspension points. “However, this possibility was practically not used, since the JASSM flight range is significantly shorter than the non-nuclear version of AGM-86 - 926 versus 1 thousand 111 kilometers,” the resource notes.

The range of flight of the new missiles - JASSM-ER - is about 1150 km.

        "Bears" X-101 did not shoot - they worked X-555. For the X-95 does not fit into the Tu-101 bomb bay, and the external suspension still falls under one of the Restrictions Treaties (therefore, the underwing pylons are so far used only for testing ALCMs).

        X-101 hung on Tu-160 revolvers.

          I'm not talking about Syria. if memory serves, back in 2007-08. photos of the "Bear" appeared with prototypes (layouts) of the X-101 on pylons. and then there is the combat use of these missiles (albeit from the Tu-160). so overseas friends decided to use an old, but time-tested machine (B-52) as a carrier of new missiles
          PS I apologize if I got hooked for the somewhat incorrect word "bullet". I am far from aviation and I try not to use aviation (like many others with whom I had no business) specialized terms. hi

          Until the IA arrives, the 52nd will already launch rockets and rewind. And you have to catch them already. This is without taking into account the fact that their IAs can also cover it.

              The number of patrol cars, even at maximum readiness, does not exceed a link per regiment (two-squadron).

              At the same time, there is no talk of some kind of Soviet power, where we had only one and a half air defense fighter jets than now the entire number of the Russian Air Force. I proceed from the reality when we have a hundred fighters to the whole north.

              And attacks through the pole are certainly not the prerogative of the non-nuclear JASSM-ER. This is the case for the AGM-86 ALCM.

      it’s just that there’s not a rocket bomb!
      And that would have to be extended to farther missiles, and this is impossible without reworking the entire hull)
      So 1 thousand km is the maximum, and then knowing their love for overpricing (we practice understating), we can conclude that somewhere around 800!

      Why study there? It is said:
      the aircraft will be able to carry new cruise missiles at the underwing suspension points, as well as in the internal arms bays, for which new digital carousel-type reset systems will be installed

      And we have a standard load for the Tu-95 - 1 six-position revolver, for the Tu-160 - 2 revolvers. Underwing pylons on the Tu-95 are not yet used.

    You are right, you didn't "bullet". But they will fit into the bomb bay of the modernized TU-95MSM. True, there are very few of them so far ...

    The deal amounted to $ 9,1 million.

    It looks like a "translation error". Most likely $ 9,1 billion. Its price, if you believe the same Vicky, is from 1327000 to 1700000 dollars. Then, in the amount of 9,1 billion, it is possible to expand from 5300 to 6900 units. (about)

For all the time of the Vietnam War, Americans lost, according to various estimates, from 31 (according to our data 34) to 48 (taking into account damage and the impossibility of further exploitation) B-52. Of this number, 2 to 5 were shot down by fighters, including one aerial ram. And the Phantoms were shot down according to various estimates from 765 to 895. The pilots who shot down the B-52 received a Hero in Vietnam. The first Vietnamese astronaut - one of them

    "Wonderful are your deeds, Lord ..."
    So the bomb bay is not intended? Brave and fresh. This means that AGM-86 missiles with a range of 2500 km and a length of 6,3 meters were previously intercepted, but probably as a result of trimming and drying, the bombers now have dried up and now only 4,3 meters are placed ... laughing
