Having received engines from the Tu-160, the Tu-22M3M bomber became 50% more powerful


The second long-range bomber Tu-22M3M made its first flight. This was reported by the Serbian publication Mars Online with reference to Russian news agencies.


It is specified that in this version of the bomber new engines and electronic equipment were used, which are intended for the strategic supersonic Tu-160M ​​missile carrier bomber. We are talking about new engines NK-32-02. They will be installed on the Tu-160M, but in the amount of four pieces.

With their help, the range of the aircraft increased by 1,5 times. New electronic systems gave the crew an expanded range of capabilities, both for striking at ground targets, and in the form of more stable and secure communications. 50% more powerful fighting vehicle

- writes the edition.

It is noted that the main task of the Tu-22M3M is the fight against aircraft carrier strike groups (AUG) of the US Navy. Now, thanks to the new navigation system, the Tu-22M3M will be able to act much more efficiently. The entire upgrade package significantly improved the combat capabilities of the Tu-22M3M, bringing them to a higher level.

The publication named the ability of the Tu-22M3M to use the latest X-32 air-to-surface cruise missile, which is a deep modernization of the X-22 missile, as the main achievement of modernization. The new rocket has become smaller. She has a new engine and enhanced electronic warfare. X-32 can easily fly a distance of 1000 kilometers, breaking the enemy’s missile defense system. Each Tu-22M3M will be able to carry 2-3 X-32 missiles.


Serbs emphasize that the Russian Ministry of Defense is going to upgrade 30 Tu-22M3 bombers to the Tu-22M3M version. Moreover, the latest Russian hypersonic dagger missiles may soon appear on these bombers. Presumably 4 missiles on each bomber.

    The Americans will now in response install B-52 engines on the B-2.

        What and what "2 tons of thrust"? And how does this affect the range and tactical range?

            Exactly ..... that on the 25th, that of 32, ser.2 the same 25 tons at the MFR ... only a little bit better fuel efficiency.

      With the B-52, everything is complicated. Already lost count of failed competitions for remotorization to fail. As it turned out, the "ancient" design of JT3C and TF33 60 years ago turned out to be better than modern ones and they do not agree to replace the military. Suddenly, the new ones are expensive, and according to the old ones, apparently, either the old technologies are lost along with the Apollo's drawings and lunar soil samples, or the new ones have gone too far ahead - not to catch up. smile

            I don’t even know how to assemble models, in my defense I can only say that such a plane touched my hands. Take an assistant with a trial period? I can draw emoticons. yes

    There are no engines on the Tu-22M3M, except for the NK-25.
    3 rockets ... only .. "in wet dreams" (in the transport version and .. "empty").
    Photo ... in general .... removed from the "show" ... also "hedgehogs" under the left VZ with "cast iron" hang .... with such a suspension only in the area of ​​the 4th turn ... not further. wassat

      Well, who writes?

      It is reported by the Serbian edition of Mars Online

      How can Serbs NK-32-02 and NK-25 be distinguished if they have not seen one or the other in life? laughing

    When the modernization program was launched, they promised to restore the refueling rods on all modernized aircraft. They are still silent about this. It is possible not to annoy the Americans once again. In their understanding, the Tu22M3 with a boom is a strategist, therefore, when preparing the OSV2 contract, they insisted that we remove the refueling rods, not train refueling pilots, remove it from the technical manual for the operation of the aircraft. True, ours, having removed the bar, they left all the rest of the equipment and continued to install not new aircraft.
    But now, unilaterally, they decided to restore the rods in the process of modernization.

    This was discussed in 2018, confirmed in 2019.
    Perhaps this is due to the increase in range.

      No, this is due to the increase in range, no. START is currently denounced. All. The US offers Russia to disarm unilaterally, so ours no longer itch about their irritation.
