      Faster and more. Everything needs to be modernized - "At present, the Russian Aerospace Forces have several dozen Tu-95MS."
      We live in turbulent times.
      And also a correction to the author:
      UAC handed over another strategic plan to the Russian Aerospace Forces bomber Tu-95MS ".
      The only modification of the Tu-95, which is currently in the ranks of the Air Force, is the Tu95MS. This is not a bomber. This is a missile carrier. In the cargo bay, he carries with him a launching device - a special shaft to which six air-to-ground cruise missiles are mounted, capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

        There is no such thing as a "cargo bay", there is a "weapons bay", I beg your pardon.

            Of course they will. It’s not even a matter of saving on the construction of new ones (although new ones are necessary), the fact is that the aircraft is excellent. Americans are also modernizing their old B-52s.

        A small correction - after modernization, it can carry eight X-101 (X-102) missiles on external suspension nodes. A special shaft He (as, incidentally, the Tu-160) is called MKU. wink

      I would supplement this quote from Belinsky with a quote from Lermontov:

      .
      The promising PAKDA project on the background of the Tu 160 looks rather faded, and what are the new carriers on the new cosmodrome, compared to Energy.

    What are you here again in the morning early cack? The plane is older than the hunchbacked Zaporozhets, the foundries cry for it. Still, to admire t 55. He is certainly able to drive the Zulus, but when mixed with a country whose missile defense system does not consist of archers and a man with a mosquin, the crew is doomed, but the fulfillment of the task is in great doubt.

      Kulu have air defense over the horizon in 1000 km ??

      the main armament of which are strategic cruise missiles X-55

      Range of flight:
      X-55: 2500 km
      X-55CM: 3500 km
      X-555: km 2000 (more than 2000 km with conformal fuel tanks)

      Dear Agrokotik1989, this aircraft exists in order, in the case, God forbid, a big mess, to release all his nuclear stuffing by adversary. X-55 allows him not to enter the enemy air defense zone. And of course, this is a very significant deterrent.

    X-55 is an obsolete thing (although a two-hundred-ton warhead will not soon become obsolete). Most likely it was modernized for new types of missiles - X-555, X-101 and X-102

    beyond the borders of the country's air defense cover. He got up, fired rockets, landed.

        But an airplane, for example, is a more mobile platform, and as far as I understand, the launch range increases if you launch a launch vehicle from the air.

          Yes, what are you? I didn’t know ... The launch range of airborne missile launchers (at the moment, maybe you don’t know), about 3000 versts ... And it does NOT DEPEND on the flight altitude, since missiles fly low, low ... Strategist You are mine!

            However, ALCMs can hit targets inaccessible to ALCMs. For not all goals can be reached on the flight range of the CRNB. But the plane has no such restrictions.
            So cumulative the ALCM flight range is higher than that of the ALCM. smile

And it so happens that not one rocket will fly into it. Except for the bullet, of course, but for this he has something to answer. They called him BEAR for nothing !!
