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.

        "Медведи" Х-101 не пуляли - они работали Х-555. Ибо в бомбоотсек Ту-95 Х-101 не лезет, а наружная подвеска пока ещё подпадает под один из Договоров об ограничениях (поэтому подкрыльевые пилоны пока что используются только для испытаний КРВБ).

        X-101 hung on Tu-160 revolvers.

          я не о Сирии. если память не изменяет, еще в 2007-08 гг. появились фото "Медведя" с прототипами (макетами) Х-101 на пилонах. а тут еще и боевое применение этих ракет (пусть и с борта Ту-160). вот и решили заокеанские друзья попользовать старую, но проверенную временем машину (В-52) как носитель новых ракет
          P.S. прошу прощения, если зацепил, за несколько некорректное слово "пуляли". от авиации я далек и авиационные (как и многие другие, с которыми дел не имел) специализированные термины стараюсь не использовать. hi

              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.

    Похоже "ошибка перевода". Вероятнее всего 9,1 млрд. долларов. Цена его, если верить той же Вики от 1327000 до 1700000 долларов. Тогда на сумму в 9,1 млрд. можно развернуть от 5300 до 6900 шт. (примерно)

    Because hard to break. 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

    "Чудны дела твои господи..."
    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
