F-22 Assassin: Celestial X-NUMX predator in action

15
This fighter made its first flight in the 2008 year. Being a deep modernization of the Su-27, the "thirty-fifth" is a head outrunner in combat effectiveness. He is able to fight not only with all sorts of air targets, but also to strike objects on land and water.


Despite the fact that the aircraft lacks some of the qualities of the 5 generation fighter, such as stealth and supersonic output without switching on the afterburner, the Su-35 is able to effectively resist such machines. The unique radar "Irbis" allows you to detect enemy planes at a distance of 200 km, take support of 30 targets and aim missiles at 8 of them.

The appearance of these fighters in Syria has aroused great interest in the Western press. Many publications have expressed confidence that the Su-35 paired with the C-400 air defense system reliably covers Russian forces from the encroachment of enemies.

        Su-35, of course, an excellent 4th generation fighter. But whatever one may say, without stealth, it cannot be a full-fledged alternative to the 5th generation.

          Yes, and the range of Irbis, the author for some reason is underestimated. In fact, he works on much larger distances, namely up to 400 km.

    I am interested in two questions about the SU-35. First, is it planned to put new engines on the 35th in the near modernization stage, so that it would be as close to generation 5 fighters as possible (although now with these engines, it has an after-effects super-sound) ? ... and the second question: When will the replacement of PFAR SU-35 with AFAR be new, or ROFAR in the not so distant future?

      There was no information about the development of a new engine for the SU-35, even if you put the engine from the SU-57, probably the suspended weapons will not give supersonic sound without afterburner. I hope that after PFAR there will immediately be ROFAR.

        Before ROFAR, we are still like the moon. From the Su-57 engines will not be put on other machines. Only for the 57th. Maybe the AL-ku will be upgraded a little, but this is in the near future. Everything is crammed on the 57th. Soon or soon the engines of the 2nd stage will be tested for a couple of years. So what’s going to go into the series is with the old ones. Although they are excellent engines by themselves!

            I agree. There is no information. Full. Someone is trying, some problems have arisen. In a year ... there will be twenty. At least, who knows. hi

    After the ancient f-24 shot down our drying 16 in Syria, and the raptors intercepted our su-25 as they wanted, the guys from the Sukhoi corporation needed to put the tongue in the back and not leave the cashman-Whatman at night, and not remove the non-umbrella clips ...

      The 24th is also “ancient” and exclusively a bomber, and not for air-to-air operations like the 16th.

      Su-25 is an old Soviet-made attack aircraft, and F-22 stealth fighter. What kind of amateur you need to be to compare them at all fool , learn the materiel!
