missile carrier

Missile - a specialized purpose combat aircraft, which delivers the desired location cruise missile type "air-surface".

In most cases, it represents a heavy missile strategic aircraft, weapons which mainly consists of a large cruise missiles and medium-range missiles. Rockets are generally of the "air-land", such missiles can be equipped with patrol planes, bombers, fighters or tactical aviation units. Because of this it can be concluded that the missile is not a separate caste of highly specialized aircraft that are designed to deliver a cruise missile.

Missiles, which carries a missile, has a large enough strike power, possible to install a nuclear warhead. The main objective is to engage point targets such as ships, bridges, or polygons. Perhaps the destruction of surface targets, such as plants, transportation hubs and more. The entire complex consists of aircraft, missiles and ground service equipment. Thus, for example, missile system with the designation K-22M was presented Tu-22M and cruise missiles like the X-22M.

A brief history of the formation and development of missile

The world's first missile was manufactured by German bombers rework type Do-217E. It set the bomb type antiship Hs 293, it was manageable. The fighting took place on the use of this machine 25.08.1943, when the Bay of Biscay were destroyed by the British patrol ships. Also capture missiles FAU-1 allowed to create a missile on the basis of the first aircraft Ju-88 and He-111. It is these planes with missiles FAU-1 on board struck powerful blows to London in September 1944 years. The launches of these missiles were carried out over the North Sea.

Missile Soviet Union and the Russian Federation

On the territory of the Russian Federation and the USSR aircraft-rocket carriers were considered to be aircraft of naval aviation. Due to the appearance of K-10S missiles in service, a regiment of naval missile carriers was organized, which were represented by Tu-16K-10 type aircraft. This happened on the orders of the Ministers of the USSR in March 1961. In the future, a Tu-16 or Tu-22 was used as a missile carrier. Most of the regiments, consisting of missile carriers, were called as long-range bombers. Since the beginning of 2009, as part of the "New Look" reform, all the aviation regiments have been disbanded, and the aircraft are attached to air bases.

The most famous launch vehicles of domestic production: Tu-4, Pe-8, Tu-16, Tu-22, Tu-95, Tu-16. All of them could be completed with different cruise missiles.
