    Any way does anybody know by how much Tu-22 payload is increased by this cutting the distance?

    When operating over a 2,000km radius or less some fuel can be offset to add to payload capacity.

    Max bomb load is reportedly 24 tons with a 2,000km radius of action.

    Invincible Weapon: Russian Long-Range Bombers to Receive New Cruise Missiles Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation

    Russian Tu-22M3 Backfire long-range bombers will be armed with the newest Kh-32 cruise missile, almost invincible to enemy air defenses and interceptor jets.

    After a Kh-32 rocket is launched from the aircraft it reaches an altitude of up to 40 km, entering the stratosphere, and then rushes down at the target. Currently, tests of the new missile are in the final stage, a defense industry source told the Russian newspaper Izvestia. Tactical Missiles Corporation also confirmed that the company is now working on the Kh-32 missile. First of all, the newest missile will be aimed at destroying enemy warships, radar stations and targets that seriously distort radar signals for bombers, including bridges, military bases and power stations, military expert Dmitry Kornev said.

    New Russian cruise missiles to hit targets from 130,000 feet

    Published: Aug. 30, 2016 at 9:23 AM Nikolai Litovkin, Russia Beyond the Headlines

    Russian designers are carrying out final tests of the newest Kh-32 cruise missiles for the Tu-22M3 long-range bombers involved in the Syrian operation. The new weapon will be able to rise into the stratosphere to a height of up of 130,000 feet, with a nuclear or conventional 1,102-pound warhead and hit targets within a few yards. Each long-range bomber can carry only two of these cruise missiles, each of which weighs about 6 tons. As Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of the Natsionalnaya Oborona (National Defense) magazine, told RBTH, the Kh-32 is perfect for attacking the enemy's carrier strike groups and large ships. "However, the weapon will not be used in the operations of the domestic Aerospace Forces abroad and will serve only as a deterrent as part of the Russian Federation's military doctrine," he said.
    Kh-32 specifications
    The missile is equipped with an inertial navigation system (an autonomous system not affected by electronic warfare) and heat-seeking warheads with a radar homing head. This solution will greatly improve the accuracy of its guidance, making it independent of GPS/Glonass navigation satellite systems. Unlike other missiles, the Kh-32 rises into the stratosphere to the height of aerospace probes, where there are no potential adversary fighters or missiles. Then it flies a distance of up to 620 miles before swooping down on a target. According to an RBTH source in the defense industry, no Russian or foreign missile defense system today is able to detect the Kh-32 approaching the target: neither the domestic S-400 Triumph system nor the American MIM-104 Patriot. "The airspeed of the Kh-32 is five times higher than its predecessor, which has been deployed since the late 1960s," the source said. "Air and missile defense systems today cannot detect a diving warhead, which moves down at a speed of over 5,400 km/h." According to the source, the Kh-32 does not violate the provisions of the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 as it is not launched into orbit. It also does not violate the provisions of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty – the agreement does not prohibit either Russia or the United States from developing air-to-surface missiles, the RBTH source explained. The Kh-32, which is comparable with a front-line fighter aircraft in size, is an upgrade of a missile from the late 1960s. Its predecessor could also be fitted with a 500-kg nuclear or conventional warhead. However, its operational range was only 55 miles, and its accuracy left much to be desired. But today, designers have created a new engine, which allows the missile to hit targets at a distance of up to 1,000 kilometers, and a new control system, which coordinates with other munitions fired in a volley. http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Security-Industry/2016/08/30/New-Russian-cruise-missiles-to-hit-targets-from-130000-feet/4301472562569/
    Cheaper than developing & fielding AShBMs like China does!
    1 more nail in the coffin of the notion that USN carrier groups r still relevant vs. Russia's landmass!

    Yes, DETTERENCE in the sense that they'll keep surface warships with their CMs & aircraft well out of range, away from RF borders/coasts!
    The operational range of the aircraft is 7,000km.
    The aircraft can be equipped with refuelling probes to allow in-flight refuelling for extended range. http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/tupolev-tu-22m-strategic-bomber/
    Combat radius= 1,850 km http://www.military-today.com/aircraft/tupolev_tu-22m_backfire.htm
    2,410 km (1,500 mi, 1,300 nmi) with typical weapons load https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-22M#Specifications_.28Tu-22M3.29
    More info. at http://www.ausairpower.net/APA-Backfire.html. Combined unrefueled combat range/radius of Tu-22M3 + 620 mi of the new ALCM = 2,470 km, 1,333.69 nmi., is well above F-18E/F
    Range: 1,275 nmi (2,346 km) clean plus two AIM-9s Combat radius: 390 nmi (722 km) for interdiction mission https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_F/A-18E/F_Super_Hornet#Specifications_.28F.2FA-18E.2FF.29

    760 nmi (1,407 km) for internal air to air configuration https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_Martin_F-35_Lightning_II#Specifications_.28F-35A.29
    The F-35C specs will not differ by much! They can also strike NATO BM Defense sites.

    Taking into account that older variants of the Tu-22 are still presente in the reserve of the Russian Aerospace Force, surely this topic should be renamed to only Tu-22 to include the comments for this aircraft, that in the Syrian war proved to have a future.

    Are you both high? The aircraft wasn't destroyed, and got barely any scratches thanks to the crew who managed to land the plane with broken flaps, with 400 km/h speed.

    Not "broken flaps".
    He meant : "flaps that did not deploy"

    This is the story:
    The plane had to land at 400 km/h speed because the flaps did not deploy.
    Pretty scary, but the pilots did a good job in bringing the plane to a full stop with no damage.

    Good news for the veteran and successful Tu-22 saga that likely will have long life still.
    Link Yandex translated, my highlight. Good link. Not a lot of information on the Tu-22M3 upgrade, almost a throw away comment. More words on the Tu-95 upgrade.

    All strategic bombers Tu-160, which are now in the battle of the aerospace defence forces of Russia, will be completely modernized. This was announced by Deputy defense Minister Yury Borisov during a visit to the Kazan aviation plant.

    "All 16 Tu-160 which are in service, one hundred percent will be subjected to radical modernization. This means that there will be only a glider. All cable work, all on-Board equipment will be dismantled. In addition, will be upgraded and the Tu-22M3" – said the Deputy Minister.

    He stressed that resource available Tu-160 fully enough prior to the entry into operation of the new Tu-160M2, the production of which will be restored in Russia.

    "All this was confirmed by calculations, carried out practical investigations of the main structures of the body. These studies confirm that strength reserve is very high and the resource stock of the Tu-160 is almost limitless," – said Yuri Borisov.

    In addition, the resource turboprop strategic bombers Tu-95 is maximally extended as long as the system does not enter a promising aviation complex distant aviation (PAK DA). This aircraft is planned in the new state armament programme for the years 2018-2025.

    "We'll do our best to prolong its life by replacing the entire fleet of on-Board equipment, – said the Deputy head of the military Department, because huge amounts of money invested in maintaining this car, and she will live at least until then, until we reach the serial production of advanced complex of distant aircraft PAK YES."

    According to Yuri Borisov, the PAK DA is to actually replace the Tu-95.

    PAK-YES lol1

    Oh never change Google translate...

    Fact that PAK-DA is to replace Tu-95 further proves that it will be subsonic lower cost design. So basically a workhorse. Tu-160M2 will be heavy hitter. 

    Good to hear about Tu-22M3. Those Soviet era birds are built to last so keeping them in play is a wise move.

    I guess that's it for that Tu-22M3. Strip the parts for another one to be upgraded and send that one to junk yard.

    Too bad too. While there are still quite a few of them still around, there isn't a replacement for them anytime soon.
