          ... definitely ... so is the new version:
          Earlier, Deputy Minister of Defense Yuri Borisov said that the bomber “after the resumption of production will differ from the aircraft of this series in operation today in almost all respects».
          ... and, if you imagine what list of components there is, then I think it will be over a half million items ... and a few dozen subcontractors at least ... impressive ... hi

        They wrote something modestly in an article about such a handsome man. "Swan" is not only a record holder in terms of power and size for supersonic aircraft. 160 world records were set on the Tu-44! Especially, I was impressed by the flight range record - 18 thousand km !!! To say that this giant is unique is to say nothing! I would like to wish "White Swan" many years of "life"!

        the falcon survived and it pleases, although the runways are said to be in terrible condition there, but the 31st seems to be modifying there ... on our Falcon (they say I don’t know myself ...) you can fly into space for 700000 rubles)) .. near) ) .. put in the 31st and with a wild overload you go into the stratosphere)) it seems that not everyone is unconscious ... but everyone is sick)))

        What kind of power unit? Falcon itself is an aircraft factory (MiG-31, etc.). A strange complication is obtained with Kazan and Tu-160. What is it possible to stick from fighter jets to a bomber? This is a great mystery.

          That in general, the resumption of production of the Tu-160 is already a complete sensation. So why then at the aircraft factory can not assemble power units? wassat
          It's called: "break your brain and logic!" Although, I'm sure she is there.
          Engines like Saturn did or not?

          If someone is not in the know, then behind the fence of the 22nd factory (KAPO- aircraft manufacturing plant) there is 16th factory (KMPO - engine-building), and it would be logical not to carry engines from the Lower, but to do behind the fence - but they dragged it so that it does not seem to pull ...

      That's interesting.
      Two years ago, a decision was made to resume production.
      And then they announced that everything will be redone and improved.
      And for two years, design work has been carried out, several units in kind have been completed, full-scale tests have been carried out, and the engine has been accepted by the state.

      I don’t believe in that!
      Where and who is lying ?!

        With what fright would NK engines on Saturn be released? In Samara, there is a Kuznetsov engine-building plant and a design bureau with it. At different times, it was called differently, in my times it seems Motorostroitel.

    This is certainly good, just hiding under the capacious word "unit"? Maybe something small and insignificant that has been overflowing in hectares of a warehouse since the times of the USSR?

    Very generalized information. What is behind the mysterious word "unit" is unknown. The main idea of ​​the article is that the Nizhny Novgorod aircraft plant "Sokol" will participate in the reproduction of the new Tu-160. Alas, that's all.

    If the components and assemblies are already being produced, it means, I believe, the construction of new Swans does not begin in the 20th year, but apparently earlier (possibly in the 18-19 years).
    I once said that the pace of development and the transfer of new systems and systems to the troops is accelerating. Apparently, it will come out in this case too.

    Hurray !!! ... But don't go to the point of absurdity in secrecy !!! Any normal PC user can go to the site of the SOKOL plant and see what the plant does in principle.
    And then for a long time and unsuccessfully guessing about the unit ...
    Senseless, unfortunately. "Hurray-potts-creatinism" wanted to add what? In my opinion, so excess.
