The Tu-95MS will receive cruise missiles, long-range

Strategic bombers-rocket carriers Tu-95MS aircraft will be equipped with cruise missiles, long-range Kh-101, the newspaper “Izvestia” the words of the army General Peter Deinekin, former-commander of the Russian air force.

– Tu-95 was originally planned to use 16 long-range cruise missiles, but in the framework of the Russian-American agreements external beams for their accommodation were dismantled: the aircraft took off the equipment and run the cable line to the external triggering devices, – said Deinekin.

Such weapons have reduced range bombers, but, as noted by the former commander in chief, it is not critical.

– No need to break through the air defense system – a missile can be produced from our territory. Take a compass and measure out a circle at five thousand kilometers, for example from Smolensk or Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and get the affected area – said the General of the army.
