    2) Under Stalin, 1500 was produced annually, and now thieves and 12 planes cannot give aircraft a year!

      but no !!!!
      4) The F-35 is a truly advanced airplane, and (thieves, zaputintsy, cotton wool and dr .... to taste here) they can’t come up with anything new and live by the fact that with the union they designed while lagging behind the true masterpieces for 100 generations .....

      There was a time. The Chkalovsky plant in Novosib in 1944 worked under the motto - Yak-7,8,9 regiment per day. As the poet said: "Nails would be made of these people." And we can only sin on them to pray.

        Yes, I only advise you to read the memoirs of the pilots who write that out of twelve Il-2 planes, ten had to be returned to the factory. And the technological complexity is not correctly compared.

          I read memoirs, but did not meet such nonsense. There was a marriage, which the military representatives took under pressure. But after the war in 1946, when it was revealed (Aviation Marshal, twice GSS Novikov to help a relative, drug addict of the aviation industry, Colonel General, Hero of Socialist Labor Shakhurin for the implementation of monthly plans for the production of aircraft forced military envoys to accept worthless aircraft) both sat down. Twice GSS departed for 6 years from “call to call” And the odes were satisfied by the very tonsils that they got off so easily. “We take a walk together - Vyacheslav Mikhailovich, Shota and I along an alley parallel to the railroad along the fence. Alexei Shakhurin, People's Commissar of the aviation industry, meets us during the war years. The old men kindly greeted us and stopped to talk. First, about this about health , household chores, etc. Molotov introduced us, and, taking courage, I asked:
          “What were you sitting for, Alexei Ivanovich?”
          “Ask him,” answered Shakhurin, nodding at Molotov, “he put me in prison.”
          “Thank you for giving little,” answered Molotov, tapping his wand on the ice.
          Shakhurin thought a little and looked at me:
          “But he is right.” At that time it could have been worse. Now they give the Hero of Socialist Labor for this, and then they could shoot ... "(F. Chuev. One hundred and forty conversations with Molotov. P. 454)
          And about the complexity. And in the factories who worked. Women, boys, invalids. In the book “I Fought with the Aces of the Luftwaffe”, Drabkin has the memories of a pilot who went to the aircraft factory and saw who worked there. Read.

    They do it, and it’s good, if only all sorts of liberties from the army do not take money for rearmament.

    But I’m wondering: will they make a double version for Su 57?

        God give it! In general, a heavy fighter, with a bunch of radars, electronic warfare and rtr, like an a priori operator implies.

          As an example: Su-27-Su-27UB-Su-30MKI-Su-30SM

    The pace of the release of aircraft of war years in our time does not take. Labor intensity has grown tremendously. The full production cycle of some critical units can take up to 18 months or more. Maintaining such a pace of deliveries of new aircraft is the result of tough production planning in conditions of limited production resources (objectively, our military industrial complex relies solely on its own strengths, and at the same time, many manufacturers of components and components are the only ones) and technological opportunities lagging behind the world level ("thanks" 90- years). Many enterprises of the aviation industry are re-equipping their machinery, but this is not a quick business — no one has canceled the period of development of new equipment. 15-20 heavy fighters per year produced by one plant is a good pace.

      This is a good pace, I personally agree. 45-50 new planes per year (all together), and if from the 19th they also go to MiG35 with Su57 then it’s generally normal. The only thing that bothers me is the thing about Mig35: officially there is infa on the websites that no more than 40 fighters will be delivered to our Air Force, and the command staff from the military council “brings” more “delicious” numbers of 100-120 aircraft, which I personally like more. Who has more or less reliable information, not online? Please share, you can in PM.

        There will be more “everyone together.” Further increase in output is constrained by only one factor, the presence of “exploiters.” This is the main problem. The lack of graduation from vocational schools in recent years makes itself felt.

          So for sure, and even the lack of suitable airfields

    I look at the picture and I can not understand. What is it, 4 suspension points? This is some kind of civilian airliner, and not a fighter.

        Why google it and look at Wiki. Where are there 12 of them? I can see with my own eyes that on the left plane you can hang one rocket on the wingtip and one on the p-72.
