Summary

 
Object and purpose of research.In the XXIst century, aircraft becomes more and more expensive to develop and operate, so the task of making it capable of performing a wide spectrum of functions is becoming more and more relevant. This paper discusses one of possible ways to develop a multi-role airplane
Subject matter and methodsThe progress in computers and electric remote control technologies made it possible to make aircraft modular. Modular airplanes are sure to be the most welcome in carrier-based aviation. This paper gives tentative calculations of key parameters for a modular airplane, based on fundamental provisions of strength theory and aviation theory (Breguet formula).
Main results.This paper suggests one of possible efficient configurations of a carrier-based airplane. The main drawback of modular aircraft is that their airframes are too heavy, as compared to conventional one. For a modular airplane with takeoff weight of ~30 t this excessive weight would be approximately 880 kg, resulting in somewhat lower performance parameters, e.g. maximum range 10% shorter. On the other hand, enhanced flexibility offered by modular airplanes paves way to a whole new level in aircraft upgrade and operation capabilities.
Conclusion.Availability of modular carrier-based aircraft will significantly reduce technological risks in development of Russian multi-role aircraft carriers, making it possible to do without a catapult, as well as to improve size and weight of ships, simultaneously widening the spectrum of their possible applications
