Russian Tu-95 will continue to frighten the West until 2035 year

Russian bombers want to equip with modern equipment.

Despite the fact that the Tu-95 strategic bombers are among the oldest in the arsenal of Russian VCS, the specialists seriously thought about upgrading these planes and continuing their operation for at least another 15 years.

At the moment it is known that in the strategic bombers Tu-95 want to replace the flight-navigation equipment, which will allow the crews of these aircraft to accurately go to a specified position, and minimize the likelihood of any mistake. According to preliminary data, the Russian strategic bombers Tu-95 are supposed to be in service with the Russian military aviation space up to 2035, after which these aircraft, with a high probability, will be written off as morally obsolete and physically worn out.

"The Tu-95 bomber is a wonderful airplane! During the strikes against terrorists in Syria, these bombers demonstrated the highest effectiveness of their application. Unfortunately, these planes are already morally obsolete, especially if we take into account the fact that they began to be operated in the distant 1956 year ", - the expert Avia.pro comments.

On the other hand, it is important to realize that The United States of America also intends to modernize its strategic bombers B-52 "Stratofortress", extending their resource to 2040 year.
