“Foreign military attaches, of course, could not help noticing (at the Victory Parade) the beams that appeared under the wings of the vehicles to mount the latest X-101 strategic long-range cruise missiles. The Tu-95 was originally designed for the use of 16 long-range cruise missiles, but within the framework of the Russian-American agreements, the external beams for their placement were dismantled: the launch equipment and cable tracks to external launchers were removed from the airplanes ”,
told the ex-commander in chief of the newspaper Izvestia.

According to him, the plane does not have to break through enemy air defenses; it can use missiles without leaving Russian airspace.

“There is no need to break through the air defense system - missiles can be launched from our territory. We take a compass and measure a circle of five thousand kilometers, for example, from Smolensk or Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and we get a defeat zone, ”the general explained.

In turn, the commander of the Far aviation Anatoly Zhikharev said that 43 strategists will undergo modernization, which will extend their service life to at least 2025.

According to the newspaper, “updating the Tu-95 concerns the replacement of the Obzor-MS radar station of the new Novel-NV, the installation of the SOI-021 information display system, the upgraded Meteor-HM2 airborne defense complex, and the replacement of NK turboprop engines -12MPM and installation of new propellers AV-60T.

“In addition, the aiming-navigation complex will be replaced, which will allow the use of new strategic cruise missiles. Especially for them, the bomb compartment was enlarged on the Tu-95MS, and eight outer beams were installed on which 16 X-101 cruise missiles can be fixed. From their predecessors - X-55 - they differ in increased flight range and non-nuclear equipment ", - says the publication.

    The stuffing of the "bear" was changed, it remains to attach the appropriate weapons. There are beams for fastening the latest strategic cruise missiles, you can hang the X-101 and go ahead. They have already shown themselves in Syria.

        Sergey, not all aviation specialists are here. You can wonder - why is this type of autopilot bad, what are the more advanced analogues, and what characteristics need to be improved? On the Internet, such data, you know, cannot be found.

      this is already a nuclear apocalypse, it will also be difficult for us. but 6 hundred KR even without nuclear weapons will clean up for example Turkey, all their bases, airfields, ports.

      Under START 3, we have no more than 450 strategic cruise missiles with a nuclear warhead.

    Upgraded aircraft can carry "only" 8 missiles, but with a launch range of 4500 km.

      Why comrade VohaAhov minus?
      In the article there are only four blunders - there are four external suspensions and two missiles can be suspended on them.
      With the cargo bay somehow unclear. If you lengthen it, then this is a very serious job. Either the fifth compartment with the equipment removed, or the sixth with part of the seventh. And this is a bunch of power elements and bulkheads. And the alignment must be sustained very seriously.
      But these improvements have been going on for a long time and the article is clearly a bit outdated.
      Only now, the Tu-95MS flight range only with external suspensions seriously drops, not to mention with missiles suspended on them. So the pluses from the X-101 flight range in this embodiment are somehow not felt.
      And the AB-60T screws (heavier) went to the aircraft in the spare parts in Soviet times, only they were not installed as unnecessary (they have their own hemorrhoids). Or I'm wrong?

        AV-60T is a fairly new development, although it began in Soviet times. But full-scale tests were launched already in the 90s. The tests were carried out in ZhLI and DB (Zhukovsky) on a Tu-95MS with an onboard No. 604. As a result of the tests, it became necessary to strengthen the design of the propeller shaft of the NK-12MP engine due to the increased loads on it associated with a greater (by about 15%) thrust screw AV-60T in comparison with the modification of the AV-60K series 05 used at the present time on the "Bears". As far as I remember, the aircraft with an onboard 604 was the only one on which new weighted propellers were tested. In 2002, almost immediately after the repair, the aircraft was transferred to the Dyagilevo airfield (Ryazan) for scrapping. The first step was to remove the AV-60T screws and send them back to Zhukovsky: they planned to sign a contract with the Indians for the re-equipment of Indian Tu-95s with these screws. However, it did not work out, the Samarans did not bring the engines with reinforced shafts to the series in time, then the Indians themselves wanted to get the Tu-95M22 into operation instead of the Tu-3. They even came to Ryazan to inspect our "troikas". But what has not grown together with the Indians will now be us, and this is good news. Successful modernization to our "Bears"!

    however, under the Russian-American agreements, the external beams for their placement were dismantled: the launch equipment and cable routes to external launch devices were removed from the aircraft, ”

    What kind of agreement? If not mistaken, the B-52H has 16 suspension points.

        Dear "SSI"! The very fact is important! And what prevents, instead of "X-101" hang "X-102" Hopefully there is no need to explain the difference! hi

          They showed THREE sides whether the beams were visible on them - the question is ... They have been modernizing planes for years ... well, several, they are modernizing the Tu-160, and it can carry the 101st and 102nd ... Deinekin rustled and God with him ... Yes, by the way, while the plane is flying - it is not outdated, but flying!

    "Especially for them, the Tu-95MS has an enlarged bomb compartment, and eight external beams have been installed on which 16 Kh-101 cruise missiles can be mounted."

    Most likely a mistake. Beams only 4. On them you can hang 8 rockets. Another 8 on two reels in the fuselage. Only 16.

        Here I am about the same! But the article does not mention X-102, but there is "non-nuclear equipment"! Are we really learning to compose brains in the style of our "probable partners"? Even nice! good
        EMNIP, X-102 flies a little further - warheads are lighter, respectively, more fuel.

          EMNIP, X-102 flies a little further - warheads are lighter, respectively, more fuel.
          The amount of fuel in a rocket does not depend on the mass of the warhead, but on the volume of fuel tanks. Personally, I would like to understand, due to which, as stated (if, of course, really increased) the hit accuracy has been increased compared to the X-555.

            If the mass of the warhead is less, then even with the same amount of fuel the aircraft will fly further. But the nuclear warhead is not only lighter than usual, but also takes up less volume - due to this, the volume of the fuel tank is increased. And the accuracy of modern missiles is higher due to the use of more advanced inertial guidance systems (improved laser gyroscopes, for example), as well as through the use of additional aiming methods for the final section of the flight (satellite, optocorelation, radar correlation, all sorts of combined, etc.) that the nuclear X-102 is slightly less accurate than the non-nuclear X-101, but how true is the question. But if it’s true, then due to the refusal of the X-102 from additional aiming methods, again a little mass is saved and a little volume is released for fuel.
