Maybe some help


The Tu-160 bomber is intended to

defeat the most important targets in

far-off military-geographic areas and

in the deep rear of continental theaters

of operations by using nuclear

and conventional weapons.

The bomber’s airframe is of an integrated

configuration featuring a

blended wing-body layout. The peculiarity

of the airframe structure

resides in a titanium beam which is

an all-welded torsion box provided

with outer wing panel tilting assemblies.

All the main airframe members

are secured on this longitudinal

beam running through the entire airframe.

The variable-geometry (from 20

to 65 degrees) wing assures high

aerodynamic characteristics at both

supersonic and subsonic speeds alike.

The aircraft is equipped with all-moving

vertical and horizontal tail surfaces.

It features a fly-by-wire control


The Tu-160 bomber is powered by

four augmented turbofan engines

arranged in two engine nacelles and

provided with variable vertical wedge

air intakes.

The bomber is equipped with an inflight

refueling system provided with

an extendible refueling probe

arranged in the nose fuselage in

front of the pilots’ cockpit.

The crew occupies K-36LM ejection

seats enabling the crewmembers to

escape from the aircraft in an emergency

at all altitudes and airspeeds,

including zero values.

The Tu-160’s avionics comprises an

integrated aiming, navigation and

flight control system; airborne radar;

ECM equipment; automatic control

system; and other equipment. It

ensures the execution of flight missions

at any time of the day and in all

weather and climatic conditions.

The aircraft features a highly computerized

airborne equipment.

The cockpit data display system is

represented by electromechanical

dispalys and monitors. The control

columns, which are traditional for

large aircraft, are replaced here by

the fighter type control sticks.

The Tu-160 bomber’s armament comprises

subsonic nuclear-tipped longrange

cruise missiles. The missiles

are arranged on multistation launchers,

six missiles in each of the two

weapon bays. Provision is also made

for aerial bombs of various purpose

and types with a total weight of

up to 40 t.

Moooooore to go





The Tu-160 can carry nuclear and conventional weapons including long-range nuclear missiles. The missiles are accommodated on multi-station launchers in each of the two weapons bays.


The Tu-160 is capable of carrying the strategic cruise missile Kh-55MS, which is known in the West by the Nato designation and codename AS-15 Kent. Up to 12 Kh-55MS missiles can be carried, six in each bay. The Kh-55MS is propelled by a turbofan engine. The maximum range is 3,000km, and it is armed with a 200kt nuclear warhead.


The weapons bays are also fitted with launchers for the Kh-15P, which has the Nato designation and codename AS-16 Kickback. The Kh-15P Kickback has solid rocket fuel propulsion, which gives a range up to 200km. The Kickback can be fitted with a conventional 250kg warhead or a nuclear warhead. The aircraft is also capable of carrying a range of aerial bombs with a total weight up to 40t.







Raduga Kh-65 / Kh-SD

<P itxtvisited="1">Russian President Boris Yeltsin announced in January 1992 that he would end the manufacture of all sea- and air- launched cruise missiles. <P itxtvisited="1">The Kh-65 missile is a tactical modification of the strategic Kh-55. According to available information (on data sheets at the 1992 Moscow Air Show), its range was to be 500-600 km. The reduced range is a product of compliance with the SALT-2 treaty. The reason for shortening its range was that, according to terms of the SALT-2 Treaty, any aircraft carrying missiles with a range longer than 600 km will be regarded as a strategic one and the number of such aircraft is strictly limited. <P itxtvisited="1">A full-sized version of the Kh-65SE was displayed for the first time in 1993 (February in Abu Dabi, then September 1993 in Zhukovskiy and Nizhniy Novgorod). The missiles shown at the exhibitions did not differ from the earlier versions except for their range, quoted as 250 km when launched from low altitude and 280 km when launched from high altitude. <P itxtvisited="1">The Kh-65 was intended for use against large targets with a larger than 300 m2 effective reflecting surface area, particularly warships, under conditions of strong electronic interference. It approaches the target guided by an inertial navigation system while flying at a low altitude. Having reached the region where the target is located, it rises to a higher altitude and its active-radar target seeking system turns on. <P itxtvisited="1">The Kh-65SE derivative of Kh-65 cruise missile is a long range, aircraft-launched anti-ship missile. It employes an active radar seeker for the terminal phase of the flight engagement.

Raduga Kh-SD

<P itxtvisited="1">Kh-101 components were to be used in Kh-SD medium range ALCM in development in the 1990s. The Kh-SD is a tactical version of the Kh-101, with shorter range and a heavier warload, which may be either a penetrator or a cluster-munition. The Kh-SD may be an improved version of the Kh-65 precision-attack cruise missile, which was promoted by the Russians in the early 1990s, along with a "Kh-65E" antiship variant. The Kh-SD is reportedly a smaller version of the Kh-101. It is said to be shorter and lighter [by some 600-800kg], with a much shorter range of only several hundred kilometers. It likely uses the same homing system as the Kh-101, but the Kh-65S anti-ship version may have an active radar seeker. The fact of the existence of this program was first disclosed in data sheets released at the 1992 Moscow Air Show, at which time it appeared to be a tactical derivative of the Kh-55 Granat [AS-15 Kent] strategic cruise missile. More recently, it is described as the short range tactical version of the Kh-101.





Kh-55 Granat / AS-15 Kent

<P itxtvisited="1">Three aircraft versions of this missile are known as: Kh-55 (Article 120, alias RKV-500, NATO's AS-15a), Kh-55-OK (article 124), Kh-55SM (Article 125, alias RKV-500B, NATO's AS-15B). Production of a stretched-range version, the "Kh-55SM", began in 1986. The improved Kh-55MS, AS-15B Kent reported NATO-codename, version was fielded in the 1990s. The X-55SM modification provided for increased range with the installation of expendable conformal external fuel tanks, giving it an estimated range of 3,000 kilometers (1,860 miles). <P itxtvisited="1">The Kh-55 has been in Russian service since 1984 as a nuclear-armed air-launched cruise missile. The missile carries a 200 kt nuclear warhead. The Kh-55 is the Soviet counterpart to American AGM-86 ALCM cruise missile. The Kh-55 cruise missiles are deployed with strategic bombers Tu-95 MS and Tu-160. <P itxtvisited="1">Each Tu-95MS bomber can carry up to six X-55 missiles, located on catapult type launching drum installation in the bomb compartment of the aircraft. In addition to the internal rotary launcher, the Bear can carry more Kh-55s externally, though in an overload flight condition. Two are carried on a stores attachment between the fuselage and inboard engine, and three are carried on a stores attachment between the two engines on each wing, for a total of ten missiles. In two loading compartments of supersonic Tu-160 can be located 12 long range cruise missiles (with the additional tanks) or 24 conventional cruise missiles. <P itxtvisited="1">The only cruise missile carriers are aircraft of strategic aviation - Tu-95MS and Tu-160. The arrangement of missilesr of this type on the Euro-strategic bombers Tu-22M2 and Tu-22M3, according to the design project leader of BAR - I.S.Selezneva, was not provided for, although similar prospects repeatedly were discussed on the pages of the western press. After the collapse of the USSR some of the missiles and their carrier aircraft remained beyond the limits of Russia, in particular, in Ukraine and in Kazakhstan. At the end of 1999 there were 575 cruise missiles of air basing X-55 and X-55SM delivered from Ukraine to Russia by rail transport on account of liquidation of debt for the deliveries of gas.








<P itxtvisited="1">The Kh-555 is Russia's new conventionally-armed air-launched cruise missile. It is based on the Kh-55 nuclear-armed cruise missile that was developed during the Cold War, upgraded with Kh-101 technology. Both missiles are carried by Tu-95 Bear and Tu-160 Blackjack bombers. The Kh-555 is a reworked Kh-55SM, which uses the Kh-101 homing system and replaces the nuclear warhead with a conventional one. <P itxtvisited="1">Russia will convert some Kh-55 nuclear capable missiles to the Kh-555 conventionally armed cruise missile, similar to American AGM-86. When fully integrated into operational units, the Kh-555 will provide Russia with the ability to strike high priority targets with precision from long ranges. <P itxtvisited="1">The nuclear warhead is replaced by a 500 kg class conventional warhead. These changes were estimated by Western intelligence to have reduced the range of the Kh-555 to 2,500-3,000 km compared to the Kh-55 range of 3,000-3,500 km. A deep modernization X-55 with improved navigation, Russian sources claim that the range is increased to almost 5000 km. The Kh-555 has been in development for a number of years. During October 1999 test launches of the newest strategic cruise missiles passed qualifications. Following this the government made the decision to begin series production. In March 2000 it was reported that the Russian Air Force had tested a new cruise missile with a conventional warhead.


In further:





Kh-101 / Kh-102

<P itxtvisited="1">Russian President Boris Yeltsin announced in January 1992 that he would end the manufacture of all sea- and air- launched cruise missiles. <P itxtvisited="1">As of 1996 it was reported that at least two next-generation strategic cruise missiles were under development, with conventional (Kh-101) or nuclear (Kh-102) warheads. The Kh-101/102 was in development for most of the 1990s, and were expected to enter service in 2002-3. Reported to incorporate stealth features. By late 2000 very few details had emerged concerning either program, neither of which appeared to have received Western designations. Based on the reported association between the Kh-55 and the Kh-65, it is probably the case that the Kh-101 is a derivative of the previous Kh-55. <P itxtvisited="1">It was reported that Russian Air Force plans called for upgrading the Tu-95MS `Bear-H' bomber to carry up to eight Kh-101 or 14 Kh-65 cruise missiles. There was also a plan for the Tu-160 to carry 12 Kh-101s. A re-arming plan for the Tu-160 under which tthe modernised Tu-160 was to carry 12 Kh-101s or Kh-SDs was halted in 1998. At that time the Russian Air Force had only six bombers of this type and talks on buying a further 19 from Ukraine fell through. In April 1998 it was decided that Ukraine's Tu-160s would be scrapped. There was therefore no sense in launching an upgrade programme and the complete withdrawal of the Tu-160 from service was being considered. The long-range Kh 101 cruise missile apparently still under development by the Raduga Design Bureau and long-range aviation. It was apparently first launched in October of 1998 by a Tu-160 during 37th Air Army exercises. It will reportedly be employed with either a conventional (Kh-101) or a nuclear (Kh-102) warhead. The conventional warhead version required the use of a highly accurate guidance system, which reportedly provides a circular error probability of 12-20 meters. An electro-optic flight path correction system uses a terrain map stored in its onboard computer, as well as a TV-seeker for the terminal stage of flight. The Kh-101's launch weight is 2,200-2,400kg and its maximum speed is Mach 0.77. The range of this system probably exceeds 3,000km, and some reports claim a range of as great as 5000 km.


<P itxtvisited="1">The Kh-101 is described as having an "aerial torpedo" configuration, but with swept wings and use of radar absorbing materials, conformal antennas, and other stealth technologies. The design features an INS guidance and satellite navigation receiver for midcourse guidance, with terminal attack using an image matching system. This high precision allows a conventional warhead, though the Kh-102 version has a nuclear warhead. <P itxtvisited="1">Some reports suggest that the Kh-101 share the engine configuration of the Kh-55, with a turbofan under the tail, while other accounts claim the a turboprop engine drives a pusher contraprop system on the tail, with propeller blades made of low-RF-signature materials. This confusion suggests that possibly alternative propulsion schemes were evaluated. In March 2000 it was reported that the Russian Air Force had tested a new cruise missile with a conventional warhead. It was said to be a Kh-555 missile, which was developed from the Kh-55, with a range of 2000 - 3000 km. The relationship between the Kh-555 and the Kh-101, with evidently similar characteristics, is unclear. As of early 2005 it appeared that the development of the Kh-101 had been suspended in favor of the Kh-555 program. <BR itxtvisited="1">

Well since it's a CGR, try using the A/G radar and locking up a target. That's the only way I can think of at the moment, as that would be the plausible
