The first engines for Tu-160 will be made this year in Samara

79
At the Samara motor enterprise them. Kuznetsova this year will manufacture the first 5 NK-32 engines for Tu-160 bombers, reports Look with reference to the Deputy Minister of Defense Yuri Borisov.




“At the plant’s stand, qualification tests of the first engine of the new series will soon begin, and according to the plans of this year, the Samara Kuznetsov Plant should make one qualifying and four serial engines,” said the deputy minister.

“The Ministry of Defense is closely watching the progress of this work,” he stressed. “If we talk about the results of last year, then a fairly good pace has been gained.”

In Samara, production is currently under preparation for serial production of the NK-32, “which has the best characteristics,” said Borisov.

“We looked at the readiness of enterprises for mass production,” he added.

According to the deputy minister, after the resumption of production, Tu-160 bombers will surpass their predecessors in all characteristics.

“This is a fundamentally new aircraft, which differs in almost all parameters from the Tu-160, which is in operation today,” said Borisov.

        NK-32, which was created as a development of the NK-144, NK-144A engines. NK-144-22, NK-22 and NK-25. The turbofan engine NK-32 with the same take-off afterburner thrust of 25000 kgf and afterburner thrust of 13000 kgf should have had a specific fuel consumption at a subsonic mode of 0,72-0,73 kg / kgfh and supersonic - 1,7 kg / kgfh, and in it the design was planned to use many of the main components identical to the NK-25

        I was hoping for a new generation of engines for such a global modernization, because in essence TU160 today is some kind of alternative to PAK YES for the near future, it would be necessary to approach the modernization more seriously ... request

          Well, in a more serious way - they said that they would upgrade, and as NEXUS said, an airplane is being built around the engine, and the airplane is a little secret - this information may be enough already, especially with new nachikas (construction materials, all kinds of mechanics-electronics) the airplane will surely be on a few tons easier. So even with an old engine, the performance characteristics should grow up. Based on this and having an idea of ​​the old swans, the lack of information on the new performance characteristics of sitting / lying on the couch can be experienced quite painlessly.

          Yes, there everything is normal on engines already on the pack, so they will put it on the T160 if they test the current, the avionics on the T160 will change the weapons nomenclature and this is enough to squeeze out of this glider !. For the T160, the engines are more likely not so much doing and striving to make new ones, they are more likely to want to build on their technological base for the pack, but right now they just want to keep the power of the specialists and be able to change them as they develop their resources on already flying machines.

          Judging by your chronology of creating the NK-32, you should also imagine that the cycle of creating a new engine (in time) is commensurate with the cycle of creating a new aircraft (complex). Restored production ... Already good. We won’t be left without engines.

          I could be wrong, but this plane was ahead of time in its characteristics. He is not only beautiful, for his time he has outstanding engineering solutions - variable sweep of the wing, one of the best characteristics in combat capabilities. Therefore, modernization will not spoil it. God grant the white swans of the clear sky.

            Outstanding engineering solutions were on the T-4 (Sotk). In percentage terms on the new aircraft, about 20-25% innovative ... so on the "hundred" this percentage was close to 90%. And his performance characteristics were better, which does not Swan is a mediocre bomber.

              Why compare machines for different purposes? The T-4 was created for a very specific task - a supersonic attack and a hypersonic missile strike at the AUG. In principle, he could not be a "strategist". The range and size are not the same.

                You should study this question in more detail ... there were three modifications of the T-4, and one of them was called the T-4S. I meant it exactly.

                  What is there to study? Unrealized projects t-4m and t-4ms? So these machines are already completely different, and remained only on paper. What to talk about? "Weaving" is "weaving". It is in a single copy. With a range of 6 thousand km, what kind of strategist is this? It is a pity that they closed it, they thought that with the increased air defense of the AUG, it had no chances. But no other real methods have been invented.

                    Stupidity. T-4 won the tender. It's just that Tupolev did not want the Tupolev factories to repurpose and reorient to Sukhoi's car, influencing the result of the tender with their authority. Therefore, Tupolev created, one might say, a successful, but "hastily" car ... well, that it turned out to be very successful.
                    But the T-4MS in terms of performance characteristics is better than Lebed. And breaking through the T-4 adversary’s missile defense at a speed of 3 mach is easier, you must agree. For this, in general, these machines were designed at that time.

                      Meet the M-20, with which Myasishchev Design Bureau entered the competition.

                      And you said everything correctly about Tupolev's authority - this "genius" of design thought simply crushed him with his authority, as a result of which he was given all the developments on this machine.
                      This was justified ... by the paucity of V.M. Myasishchev's Design Bureau, recreated in the second half of the 1960s, and by the lack of the necessary scientific, technical and industrial base. Tupolev destroyed Myasishchev for the second time.

                      “No better, do the same” - Stalin knew about the abilities of this designer ...

              Again patriotism :-) Well, what is it better than B-1B? Shtatnik knows what Tu-160 does not. And, with less weight, carries the same combat load. And avionics is traditionally better. And they went through modernization. And the nomenclature of weapons is more diverse. Yes, and more of them much .. about 5 times ..

              Contrary to popular belief, I’ll try to express my own.

              Weaving just did not take its place. Moreover, he could not become an alternative to the Tu-160.

              Weaving in size and tasks was an alternative to the Tu-22. This is an aircraft to combat aircraft carriers. But with a lot of problems:
              1, he was not ready. To declare that a hundred was ready - it’s the same as saying F-35 was ready 10 years ago.
              2nd He was supposed to carry anti-ship missiles. Moreover, "hypersonic" - flying at great heights. This was immediately questioned. The cost effectiveness of such a missile is highly controversial.
              3 The combat load and range are comparable precisely with the Tu-22m3 but not with the Tu-160.
              4-e Titanium case and other innovations raised its value to heaven. Something would remind a story with B-2 now.
              5-e In Tu-160 used the achievements of Tu-144 and this is a huge reserve!

    The first thing bombers. Each bomber on the route is a headache for our sworn partners. The fact that they can work effectively on targets behind enemy lines was clearly shown by the operation in Syria. Four engines = kit for one Tu-160. So we can lift it by plane per year (one at a time).

    So our "white swans" will fly and fly. "... The total designated motor life of the NK-32 is three thousand hours, the overhaul period is one thousand hours. The maximum take-off thrust is 25 thousand kilograms, the nominal thrust is 4200. Engine weight is 3500 kilograms.

    They did not abandon the unification: instead of NK 25 (TU 22M3), put NK 32 on them. ..... "Tu-22M4 2 x NK-32 1 copy of Tu-22M3 was re-equipped to install engines, but NK-32 engines have not been were installed on the plane "...
    The idea is interesting and promising.

    Only five engines? Or five sets of engines?
    There are four of them on one plane. That is, if five engines are meant, and not sets, it turns out that they will manufacture the engines on an 1,25 aircraft in a year.
    Something is not very fast ...

    Continued production of the Tu-160 suggests that PAK DA will have to wait. And, apparently, for a long time. The question rests on finances. The combat effectiveness of a military aircraft is assessed by its ability to perform a combat mission, and not by the beauty of its contours. The Tu-160 can have problems with this. On modern locators, it will glow like a Christmas tree. It will be problematic to fly to the launch zone of the Kyrgyz Republic when working on overseas targets. Here we would need our analogue of B-2.

      And where did you get the idea that the TU-160 will generally be included in the adversary’s air defense coverage area? Have you heard of such missiles as X-101/102 and X-555?

    An engine is needed that would allow a non-afterburning supersonic speed. At the same time, the time for approaching the launch site of the CD will be significantly reduced, which is extremely important in a combat situation. In addition, it would be nice to install on board, due to the high EPR, a "president-s" type protection system, modernized to work against all types of missiles.

      "Modern turbojet engines will not be able to provide non-afterburning supersonic speed. Technology has not matured to this level."
      The T-50, like the Raptor, has a supersonic (1,8M) cruising speed. In your opinion, cruising speed is realized with afterburner?

    Kuznetsov Nikolai Dmitrievich - Biography

    Nikolay Dmitrievich Kuznetsov (June 10 (23), 1911, Aktyubinsk, Russian Empire - July 31, 1995, Moscow, Russian Federation) - Soviet general designer of aircraft and rocket engines.

    Full member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR and RAS, twice Hero of Socialist Labor (1957, 1981). In 1982 he received the title of honorary citizen of the city of Kuibyshev.

    He was born on June 23, 1911 in Aktyubinsk, in the family of Dmitry Matveevich Kuznetsov, by profession a boiler worker, and Maria Mikhailovna Kuznetsova, a housewife.

    He studied at the school of peasant youth. In 1926 he began working as a locksmith. In 1930 he graduated from high school and entered the Moscow Aviation College, where he studied at the evening department, and in the afternoon worked as a fitter. In 1933 he entered the air-technical faculty of the engine-building branch of the VVIA named after N. E. Zhukovsky, who graduated with honors on November 16, 1938. The theme of his diploma project was “A four-stroke engine, carburetor, 28-cylinder with a 4-row star, air-cooled, power 1500 h.p. at 3400 rpm at an altitude of 6000 m with a two-speed centrifugal driven supercharger. ”

    In April 1939 he joined the CPSU (b) in the party organization of the academy, and was soon elected party organizer of the department. April 4, 1941 successfully defended his thesis on the structural strength of aircraft engines. In the period from July to September 1942, as an internship, he was at the front as a senior engineer of the 239th Fighter Division of the 6th Air Army. In October 1942, he met with Georgy Malenkov, who praised Kuznetsov’s abilities and sent him soon as deputy chief designer to the Ufa Aviation Plant. Here he worked from 1943 to 1949, first under the leadership of V. Ya. Klimov, then, from July 1, 1946, as chief designer. In 1949 he was transferred to Kuibyshev, where he heads the State Union Experimental Plant No. 2 for the development and production of experimental jet engines, now named after him - the Samara Scientific and Technical Complex named after N. D. Kuznetsov.

    ND Kuznetsov died on July 31, 1995, was buried at the Kuntsevsky cemetery in Moscow.

    Yes, and more of them much .. about 5 times ..

    These bombers will not be able to break through the air defense. And in the arsenal, the most long-range missile hits 2500 km (if sclerosis doesn’t fail me) against 5500 km of our X-101/102.

    Well, ours too wink .... only if the air defense of the banana republic.
    And ours also does not fly at the declared characteristics ... no one at the maximum heights and speeds of the database bears
    They already shot AGM-129 flew horseradish knows when at 3500km, so they have the same missiles soldier

    Samara OJSC “Kuznetsov”, a member of the Union of Russian Engineering Engineers, one of the largest public organizations in the country, may in the future receive another multi-billion dollar order from the Ministry of Defense. We are talking about the NK-32 engines for the Tu-160 strategic bomber. They stopped releasing in the early 90's. Until recently, the “White Swans” actually flew due to the backlog of the Soviet era. But it is impossible to extend the life of power plants indefinitely. About three years ago, the company was given the task of first starting repairing existing engines and then restoring their production. The first item was dealt with in a few months; in 2013-14, they began to implement the second.

    An article about this.

    At the Samara propulsion plant them. Kuznetsov this year will produce the first 5 NK-32 engines for Tu-160 bombers

    In the 80s, the plant produced NK-32 for Tu-160 and NK-25 for Tu-22M3. We were retraining there as young lieutenants. The scope of production was impressive !!! I am glad that the plant is reviving the production of engines for long-range aviation. hi
