Model of Tupolev Tu-204P anti-submarine warfare concept.

Via Google Translate:

The project antisubmarine patrol aircraft. Development of the aircraft began Bureau named. Tupolev-based passenger plane Tu-204 at the decision of the Russian Defense Ministry in 1996 after the termination of the program of creating anti-aircraft A-40. Probably developed preliminary design or conceptual design of the aircraft. Development of the aircraft and the funding stopped, probably in 2000.

Construction - plane normal aerodynamic scheme - Tu-204 airframe. Inside the plane was supposed to accommodation compartments with equipment and weapons.

Engines (data on the Tu-204) - 2 x TVRD PS-90A - turbofan engine with a high bypass ratio, the mixing of the flow of air and gases, general jet nozzle and thrust reversers.
Link takeoff thrust (ISA, H = 0) - 16000 kg
Thrust maximum cruise thrust (ISA + 100 ° C, H = 11 km, M = 0.8) - 3400 kg
Bypass ratio at max. mode - 4.7
The compression ratio at max. mode - 31.1
Air consumption - 485 kg / s
Specific fuel consumption at cruising (N = 11 km, M = 0.8, ISA + 100C) - 0.595 kg / kg per hour
The length of the engine air intake - 5530 mm
Fan diameter - 1.90 m
Engine weight - 4800 kg

TTH aircraft (basic Tu-204):
Length - 46.14 m
Wingspan - 41.8 m
Height - 13.88 m
Fuselage diameter - 3.8 m

Maximum Take-off Weight - 103 000 kg
Mass planting the maximum - 88 000 kg
Payload weight - 21 000 kg

Flight range - 5200 km

Armament: probably supposed to equip the aircraft for a minimum set of weapons similar weapon systems of the aircraft IL-38 and Tu-142.

The structure of weapons allegedly included:
- Sonobuoys for anti-submarine search engine.
- Explosive discharged sound sources (VIZ s).
- Anti-submarine bombs.
- Aviation anti-submarine torpedoes.
- Anti-aircraft missiles.
- Sea mines.

Perhaps there were plans to equip the aircraft and missile weapons.

It is possible that the aircraft could be equipped with rescue container type CAS.

Equipment:
It is likely that an airplane planned to install anti-submarine poiskvovuyu system "Emerald-8" and its further development - "Sea Dragon" / "Novella". Development of the complex was carried out in 1990-2000 years of the Research Institute of Systems Engineering HC "Leninist" (St. Petersburg).

The complex equipment probably were:
- Radar system with long-range radar;
- Radiogidroakusticheskaya system;
- Magnetometric system with sensors on the wing of the aircraft;
- Radio system;
- Opto-thermal system with sensors on the sides of the forward fuselage;
- Board computer;
- Navigation equipment.

On samoet planned to install equipment for in-flight refueling.

Title: Russia - preliminary design, the plane was not built and flown.
