        It is a pity that nothing new in the field of strategic aviation is being built in Russia. "Made in USSR" is still used, but it does not last forever. They would not be left with a "broken trough" when their service life is over.

        And here is the answer in the next article.
        "Lagging behind the repair schedules with the modernization of long-range aviation aircraft of Tupolev PJSC continues"
        the previous missile carrier, transferred to the Aerospace Forces, "were made at the Zhukovskaya flight test and development base - a branch of Tupolev PJSC." - and we are talking about seven future ones (Read carefully). But I will not minus.

      Something I do not understand the role of Zhukovskaya flight test and development base. This is LII them. Gromov? Or is there a new office like "horns and hooves"? Well, we made improvements at the Samara Aviakor, well, continue. There these aircraft were produced and there is a production base. The guys at the end of last year and at the beginning of this year ferried airplanes from there, everyone was happy.
      Marvelous are your deeds, Lord!

        Apparently, they are developing new "surprises" for him, which HE will carry with pleasure for another thirty years and look with a grin at attempts to create "5" and "6" generations to replace him with what we have, what they have. This "old horse" does not spoil the furrows and, unlike others, plows deep!

    Flying launcher for very "not sickly" cruise missiles. It is difficult to keep track of them, the launch points may be off the coast of the "partner". The range is good. And such a launcher costs no more than a nuclear missile carrier. And there are many of them.

    Perhaps I’ll upset you if I say that the X-101 and X-102 are not placed in the Tu-95 bomb bay. Therefore, when modernizing, they install pylons under the wings for suspension of 8 (eight) X-101 (102) missiles. Whether the bomb bay remained on the upgraded Tu-95s, or was it used for any equipment or additional fuel tanks, I do not know. In open sources, I did not come across such information.

      A holy place is never empty. Probably found application. Just my opinion.

    Tu-95 has been in service for 60 years. Of course, I understand that the last aircraft of this type were released in the 80's, but the aircraft is morally and technically outdated. The crew rescue system without an ejection seat does not stand up to criticism, the suspension of x-101 / 102 missiles outside the fuselage significantly increases the drag and EPR of the aircraft, defensive weapons in the rear are useless today, engines of this type are no longer available. The advantages include greater autonomy and range. It is worth noting that the characteristics of an overseas competitor represented by B-52 are not much higher.

      Tu-95 and Tu-95MS are different planes. Tu-95MS was created later on the basis of the anti-submarine Tu-142M

        And why do you need one-16, when there is one-22m3? Give free rein to some warriors, they would have left 21 in the Air Force. In the future, the basis of Russian strategic aviation will be the Tu-160m2 and PAK DA. In long-range aviation, they will leave the upgraded Tu-22m3m as the carrier of x-32 missiles.

          It was someone who was obviously minuscule for your extravagance. (Joke). By the time of the collapse of the Union, there were still a lot of them, moreover, repaired. A strong aircraft with a payload of 6 tons or more and a decent range would be useful.

      You are wrong, not on An 70, but on An 22, NK 12 Ma was standing, on that 95 NK12 MV, NK 12MP, though the difference is only in the engine mount, and on the MP another blade coating
