    They can easily develop a removable system for the C-17. They do not need very many. It can probably carry 25-30 missiles.

    It is normal for an enemy to escalate, and it will be normal for Russia to respond with an escalation of its own... this is the way of things.

    The pitch on the props of a TU-95 blow me away, but then you realize its travelling faster then any other prop plane. I really wished they would develop more sophisticated props for this engine. Even today, it has no parallel. If they could develop a ducted arrangement for it with more modern blades it could be much more compact and quiet.

    I think the whole point is that they are the way they are to achieve the speeds they achieve... they only run on about 15K hp per engine, yet the Bear is still the worlds fastest propeller driven aircraft.

    The multi bladed propfan type engines on the An-70 look more capable but they offer rather lower flight speeds despite having significantly more engine power... those propfans and ducted fans might create more thrust by volume but the velocity is not great enough to achieve high flight speeds that the Bear operates at.

    Keep in mind at low altitudes the Bear is actually faster than the B-52, and if you think the B-52 is quiet you are wrong... and the Tu-160 is much louder obviously.

    Deeply modernized missile carrier Tu-95MSM made a test flight


    During the tests, systems and equipment were checked

    MOSCOW, 16 January. /TASS/. The deeply modernized Tu-95MSM missile carrier made a test flight, during which systems and equipment were checked. This was reported to journalists on Monday in the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).

    "As part of the test program, the next flight of the deeply modernized Tu-95MSM missile carrier took place. During the flight, the necessary checks of systems and equipment were carried out," the company said.

    It is noted that as part of a deep modernization on the aircraft, the necessary complexes of improvements were carried out to improve performance. The result of the work carried out will be a significant increase in the efficiency and reliability of the aviation complex when used for its intended purpose.

    The UAC recalled that work on the creation of the Tu-95MSM is being carried out jointly by Tupolev PJSC and TANTK named after. G. M. Beriev. Tu-95MSM is a prototype strategic missile carrier, a new modification of the world's fastest turboprop missile carrier Tu-95MS.

    The training exercise also involved Tu-95MS long-range aircraft, which fired air-launched cruise missiles.
    Not sure why those are tested. Looking at the SMO they seem to work pretty fine.

    The improvements on the blades and the engines are supposed to improve efficiency and performance which probably means more thrust and less noise and better fuel economy.

    I would guess more precisely designed and manufactured blade shapes and better pitch use during flight would allow increases in performance too.
