The new engine for the 5 fighter generation T-50 (PAK FA) successfully passes ground tests, the flight will begin before the end of this year, reports Interfax-AVN message from the representative of the United Engine Corporation (JDC) at the salon "MAKS-2017".



The program to create a promising engine (PD) for the PAK FA continues in accordance with the schedule. The beginning of the flight tests of the engine at the flight laboratory is expected in the 4th quarter of 2017. At the same time, ground tests of the AP for the PAK FA,
said the agency interlocutor.

According to him, when creating a promising engine, "new design solutions that have no analogues in the domestic engine-building industry" have been applied.

At the end of May, the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, Oleg Bocharov, told the agency that defense companies are ready to begin mass production of the T-50 fighter. “The industry is ready, both in technology, and in the provision of scientific personnel, and in production capacity. As soon as it will be clear that the technical characteristics suit the customer, we leave and produce, ”said the deputy minister.

Also the representative of the UEC announced the approval of the draft design of the engine for another promising aircraft - PAK DA.

Draft project on the engine is completed and adopted. We are currently at the stage of development of design and development documentation,
he said.

According to the annual report of the UEC last year, the corporation, in the interests of Tupolev, is creating a sustainer propulsion engine with a thrust on the 23 vehicle. The document refers to the "80 product" (from open sources it is known that this is PAK YES).

Earlier it was reported that the PAK DA can make the first flight of 2025-2026.

          Tell you how many times I read about the fact that next year they will definitely go to the Armata and PAK FA series?
          my fingers are already over.
          I’ll either have to grow new fingers, or someone from the bureaucrats for the starry kick of the whole heart to weigh.
          I am personally for the second, since the first is not so good with biology for me to grow extra limbs for myself.

            and most importantly, when it is finally brought to the series, money in the budget for bulk purchases is still not allocated

        PAK FA initially had 2 engines, the first and second stages, and even with the first stage it reached the main characteristics.
        why the PAK FA has not yet been launched into the series, hell, he knows, I hope that it’s purely for the money, and so everything is ready. because if there are still braids, then someone in the defense industry began to stare specifically.

          This is still a very serious project. We are all talking about the same engines, and yet there are also armored personnel carriers and a range of weapons. What is known about the PAK FA missiles?

      The “second stage” is the engine that was originally planned, but for lack of it, the engines of the “first stage” were installed, which also produced supersonic sound without afterburner, but not such a kosher one.

    Nothing new, it has already been voiced more than once ..... but in general, all this info for the T-50 is already starting to strain, as it goes into the series, you can talk.

    They will start next year, and will go by the end of the year, and there will be a couple more years .... when there are no competitors, you can cut such a project for a long time. Only in 5 years all of Europe will be on the 5th generation

      But the question is what? F35 is not accepted for service in the United States and is not brought up to the required specifications, the helmet has not been completed yet, but the retraction of existing aircraft is in full swing, so that later it can be untwisted for modernization. And F22 do not know how to start again. So what will Europe fly in 5 years? As before on f16 and typhoons?

      Fifth Generation Europe? Do you mean the F-35? I would not want to offend anyone, but the criteria of the "fifth generation" are slightly blurred for marketing purposes ...

        I’ll tell you a secret that our aircraft will not fulfill all the criteria of the 5th generation.

          And at least one fifth-generation aircraft will fulfill all the criteria of the fifth generation? Or is it necessary to introduce the new term “generation 5-- aircraft”?

    "New design solutions that have no analogues in the domestic engine industry."
    Now it’s clear why 35 diplomats were sent ... There are analogues in the USA ... Well, this is a joke of humor ...
    On the other hand ... remember comrade Berezhkov from the film based on the novel by A. Beck? Berezhkov wrote with A.A. Mikulin, who designed engines not the best in the world, but - "having no analogues in the domestic engine industry"

    And no one noticed the phrase "in the interests of" Tupolev "creates a marching propulsion engine with a thrust of 23 tf"?
    Marching is cruising and a thrust of 23 tf is great! hence, the output will be not 4, but 2 engines with the assumed non-supersonic profile (model) of the aircraft. will no longer put 4 engines on the STELS strategist! I think this is right!
    Compare the turbojet dual-circuit engine on the B-2: and there are 4 of them (!)
    model: "General Electric F118-GE-100"
    thrust: maximum: 4 × 7700 kgf
