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 the strategic bombers Tu-95 want to replace flight-navigation equipment, which will allow the crews of these planes to accurately reach a predetermined position, and minimizes the likelihood of any error. According to preliminary data, the Russian strategic bombers Tu-95 are supposed to be armed with the Russian Aerospace Force until 2035, after which these planes are likely to be written off as obsolete and 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.
