In the USA, they evaluated the PCA aircraft project for the breakthrough of air defense based on C-400 and C-500

The Congressional Budget Office conducted a study regarding the estimated cost of a project to create a promising aviation complex. This is a project called “Penetrating aviation"(Penetrating Counter-Air -" PCA "). The material, voiced by representatives of the congressional research team, stated that when all the parameters requested by the US Air Force are taken into account, the total cost of the latest aircraft may turn out to be sky-high.


In the USA, they evaluated the PCA aircraft project for the breakthrough of air defense based on C-400 and C-500


The report says that each PCA aircraft will cost approximately 300 million dollars.

From the material:
This is more than three times the price of the F-35, whose price today is approximately 94 million dollars.


It was noted that to cover the huge costs of a promising project, it is necessary to reduce costs and large volumes of production.

In fact, this suggests that in the United States are ready to continue the practice of frankly imposing on "partners" the procurement of their aircraft. Explicit repetition with the F-35, which a number of countries actually pledged to buy from the United States before the fifth generation aircraft went into the series, and until the technological deficiencies were eliminated.

The PCA program is designed for a period up to 2050 year.

In the material Defense News it is said that to replace existing F-15C / D and F-22, the United States Air Force will need about 414 PCA aircraft. The first aircraft (according to plans) should be put into service with the American air force in 2030.

From the statement of the committee:
It is planned that the PCA aircraft will have a significant long range and payload than the F-22. We are also talking about improved stealth options. These characteristics allow him to perform combat missions in the conditions of the most modern and promising air defense systems that Russia has and plans to create as China’s potential adversaries.


In fact, we are talking about attempts to create an aircraft that will be able to break through air defense systems based on the use of, for example, C-400 and the promising Russian anti-aircraft missile system C-500. This clearly indicates far from the defensive strategy of the United States of America.

Experts in the United States themselves call the financial parameters of the program "Penetrating Aviation" "incredible." It is noted that the aircraft at a price of one-third billion dollars, which in the end may add another 30 percent, is “too expensive.” In the US Congress they are sure that the project, by definition, must be cheaper. However, in the US Air Force, it is argued that the cheaper project can no longer allow military operations to be carried out if Russia has the newest air defense systems, including the mentioned C-500 complex.

      So they plan to live until the fiftieth year.
      Is the war delayed? fellow

      They think that until the 50th year the Russians will be limited to the S-500? what

        "Too expensive idea"

        The very idea of ​​breaking through air defense on an airplane is vicious. A plane should only become a means of launching relatively cheap air-to-ground missiles without entering the air defense zone. This equalizes both the range and the cost of the strike weapons with defense missiles. And then only the quantity - who has more, won.

          The Americans do not represent anything more useful to the world, except how to rivet weapons and suck their budget and not give life to others.

    Yes, whatever they develop there, our developers will not do anything all this time? AFAR systems in Russia are seriously developing, several manufacturing centers ...
    Radio-photonic systems - in general, the sensitivity is very high. And if they are "inserted" into the GOS, and even supplied with artificial intelligence, let the United States spend trillions on the development of its "offensive super-super fighter".
    So far, the bill is in favor of Soviet-Russian air defense. So it will continue to be wassat

LTH - shameful, can only be used as a striker, in an air battle even against 4 + / 4 ++ everything will be very bad (assuming an equal opponent with AWACS, electronic warfare and air defense).

    As long as imperialism exists on the planet, the real personification of which is now the United States, there can be no question of any world - there will always be a threat of global war and a host of local conflicts of varying degrees of tension. And our state and others, viewed by the Americans as competitors or potential colonies, will always be in danger of destruction and will spend the lion's share of their resources on maintaining defense capabilities.

      Yes, the optimism of the Americans is amazing laughing laughing ... Even their own economic experts speak through one about "a crisis that will be worse than the Great Depression", and here the freaks want to plan something there by 2050)). Then we would survive everything and not start a nuclear world war, and not think about all sorts of crap.
      All experts say - the American economy is simply obliged to "fall" because of its essence (such as the economy), well, the Americans have nowhere else to "expand", the planet "is over")) As a matter of fact, almost everyone who has recently been to the United States is oozing from the number of homeless people and psychos on the streets, rampant crime hits all the crazy recurrences ((, many say that the "growth" that their President does not stop broadcasting is fiction, all this is financial fraud and cheating, there is no real (physical) economic growth. Almost all experts say that the United States One option not to collapse below any bottom is to increase your economy, but to completely destroy ALL others in order to start reviving America not among developed and stable competitors, but among “ruins.” As it actually happened during the two World Wars, when the United States itself rose.

        It is necessary to come to an agreement with the Chinese (the main creditor of pndos), so that they simultaneously demand all the debts of the Americans immediately repay.

      Interesting idea. If you take the definition:
      Imperialism (French impérialisme, English imperialism, German Imperialismus, from Latin imperium - power, domination) - monopoly capitalism, the highest and last stage of capitalism, eve of the socialist revolution.

      then the world's first socialist state collapsed just on the eve of the socialist revolution. And we, living in the Russian capitalist society and developing it, must (all the same when) when we have to approach its highest stage - imperialism, foreshadowing the eve of the socialist revolution ... request
      Maybe it makes sense to first switch to socialism (bury the failed capitalist growths in their own country) and only then put American imperialism in an uncomfortable position? belay

        Only the failed ones? Any capital, if it is "left alone", will grow to monstrous proportions and again we will borrow capital, which degenerates into imperialism, but in a different region.
        And you know what the transition from capitalist means. rail on social. rails?
        - Detain all capitalists,
        - carefully collapse the entire private business,
        - then it is necessary to transfer the thinking of the population from the petty-bourgeois-career-egoistic to the "socialist" (while leveling the precedent of "false direction of thinking and behavior, which resulted in distrust of the system", developed in 80-90) - otherwise, how will they believe you that socialism is our only true path?
        - then you need to somehow decide - what to do with the entrepreneurial thinking that many have (because it is, although dangerous for the social system (which does not provide a wide range of products), but in many ways is the engine of progress and many other advantages source).

        As a result, for balanced (and without radical destruction) thinking, we have a dilemma about entrepreneurship "you can't leave it behind." As many have already said - put commas wherever you want, but these 2 directions (systems) are incompatible ... Although there is some experience of China. But how far-sighted or even viable it is - time should show - under their socialism, private business is gaining momentum ... It also looks like a time bomb.

      Americans they are so yes. But this is not news.

      This is an "urban legend" propagandized by no one knows why.
      1.The handle of the Zero Gravity Pen (Space Pen AG-7) is this:

      they are now worth $ 60 for everyone
      The average cost of one pen for the Apollo project was $ 6
      https://www.spacepen.com/originalastronautspacepen.aspx
      2.Not what millions of dollars NASA paid Paul C. Fisher.
      -This is stupid, those $ 12 times more expensive than current
      -anyone who is not a victim of the exam will develop such a pen for 100 000 rubles
      3.MOST IMPORTANT
      until 1967, American astronauts used for recordings felt-tip pens or mechanical pencils.
      Felt-tip pens (not to find how much they cost), simple but dangerous (fire, allergy, smell, see below)

      Pencils cost $ 128 / piece = mechanical pencil (high-strength case, but inside was the most common graphite rod).
      but graphite is fuel (fuel), and in American ships the atmosphere is an excess of oxygen. It sausages them.

      The last argument against pencils is related to fire. Any flammable material in an environment with a high concentration of oxygen is dangerous - we learned this lesson after the monstrous fire at Apollo 1.
      -In the Soviet space program, wax pencils were used that did not break - to get more writing wax, the astronauts simply removed the next layer of paper. The problem with such a pencil is that he writes inaccurately and vaguely - about like chalk. The removed layer of paper was waste, and the pieces of paper floating in the Union’s cabin annoyed just like the pieces of graphite flying in the Apollo’s cabin.


      NASA received a wholesale discount on pens - reportedly in 1968 400 units were ordered at a price of only $ 2,39 per pen. The Soviet Union also bought pens - 100 pieces. NASA astronauts began using the space pen on Apollo 7 in 1968. By 1969, Fisher space pens were used in both American and Soviet space programs, and Fisher trumpeted his success in the field of marketing. Among other things, the space pen was used on the Russian space station Mir in the mid-90s as the first product “sold from space”.

                We, as a country, are constantly hindered from developing normally and realizing our ideas, Russia is simply forced to bury the next "Master of the World" in its land, and yes, "this has a bad effect on the development of the country and the population."
                We buried the Swedes here - where Sweden is now in the World, we buried the French here - where the France is in the World, Germans were buried several times - and now they have gay parades, emigrants are raping Germans and in general Americans are going to destroy their economy as their rival in the near future, but in the German Polytechnic nobody else is the same.
                Yes, now the bourgeoisie and thieves (including politicians like 1 + 2) are breaking into the West, instead of building a good life in Russia, and I already wrote above that this is not a question for me, but for psychiatrists.

    Let them do it, so they will only bring their bankruptcy closer, I'm all for it. But to make the "complete invisibility" will not work - the laws of physics cannot be canceled for any billions. If already now (and for a long time) tiny stealth missiles from a composite with EPR 0.01 are getting lost, then absolutely any aircraft - even more so. Well, they will lower the EPR from 0.4 for the F-22 to maybe 0.2, or even to the F-117 0.1 iron. What's the point? They will be detected by a non-centimeter radar not from 270 km, but from "only" 245, and it is easy to be shot down by a missile with a seeker. Moreover, flying is no better than a kite. What's the point?

    "Too expensive idea"

    The very idea of ​​breaking through air defense on an airplane is vicious. A plane should only become a means of launching relatively cheap air-to-ground missiles without entering the air defense zone. This equalizes both the range and the cost of the strike weapons with defense missiles. And then only the quantity - who has more, won.

    Well, if we consider an aircraft as a delivery vehicle, and ideally without a man inside, then air defense rackets should "" learn "to create EMP.

    nothing surprising; notice how the whole scientific world is jointly participating in the work of the large hadron collider; the fact is that the historical development of mankind requires ever higher technological results, and especially in armaments; and the economy of even a country such as the United States cannot pull the development of such technologies alone; therefore, the imposition of their future products is a way of financial involvement in such cooperation; by the way, this is a big question to the scheme of a multipolar world, since only the only one can be the most convincing; I think that the future of humanity should nevertheless be built not on the principles of confrontation and confrontation, as an incentive to development, but on the principles of cooperation for the benefit of universal survival and strict observance of other people's rights and understandings; unfortunately, mankind is not ready for this yet, but each of us needs to strive for this, since drops are collected in rivers, and rivers feed the oceans

      Nonsense you write, just the absence of a "competitor" or, shall we say, an alternative opinion, against the background of which it is necessary to prove one's case, destroys or leads to the degeneration of any of the most remarkable control systems. For all the shortcomings of different countries or companies, the most stable from internal or external shocks are those that have internal mechanisms of "competitive decision-making". The best example is China, no, no, I know everything and understand about "US investment and market access", I'm talking about today's China, about their system of "assessing the results achieved by an official" good when everyone, any even a small official can be fired (to lose not a bad income and social services) if his results are considered low and HERE will come in his place who will actively break up good ... YES, this will not abolish either theft or corruption, but it will eliminate the "stagnation" of 99% of non-believers.
      For states, the lack of competition is doubly more dangerous, here is the example of the United States, after the destruction of the USSR and, in fact, their supremacy over the world, we did not receive either general happiness, or prosperity, or even a "scientific breakthrough." Everything is exactly the opposite - scientific stagnation and degradation, in space, Americans cannot even launch an astronaut themselves, Space-He sculpts a "macarron monst" passing it off as a super breakthrough fool , neither the exploration of the Moon, nor the sending of reconnaissance satellites to other planets, in fact, the space "froze", sorry, but it all reminds of "Brezhnev's stagnation" when the refrigerator was filled (albeit not with food), clothes and all kinds of household appliances and EVERYTHING. There is a lick of past technologies, auto - internal combustion engines like 100 or 50 years ago (yes, yes, they are different, but the principle is the same), all this shnyag with electric cars only for rich pontorez or in the USA for subsidies, the same - trains. Well, and the saddest thing is that it was the Americans who inflated (already without a competitor to the USSR) a terrible threat in the form of terrorism and unleashed local wars that have already killed millions and millions of people am negative . That is, the monopoly of one country - does not give humanity neither happiness nor progress.
      Who wants to vyaknut "well, but there will be Law and Order, one for all" - yeah SHCHAZ, kidnapping, torture, knocking out the calling with threats, here is your American "law and order". No thanks, this is not necessary.

          America can be written off in historical terms, they have already lost. Their problem, like many others, is not self-sufficiency !!! Their entire economic system is built on post-expansion (not my words). They are simply compelled to plunder the World, including on human resources, otherwise - they quickly go not even into the background, but into the background.
          In contrast to them, both China and Russia are huge (each in its own way) Empires with self-sufficiency. Neither Russia nor China needs an environment to survive, since the USA, they can spread their influence, influence, resources to the environment or not and this is their main difference from the USA - dependence on social Cycles, not economic ones !!
          For the United States, the "disruption of the cycle" of ups and downs against the background of the USSR's self-disintegration led not only to a "failure", but as it turned out to be an even worse situation, they "climbed a very high hill" from which they must fall so much "down" from the "normal".
          Well, and most importantly, in the US, most of the scientific community promoting science are emigrants, that is, people without a homeland, for those "homeland is where it is satisfying" and the process of overbearing the minds of the Chinese has already started. By the way, the Americans cannot resist this in any way, neither give more money, nor threats will work here because "freedom and wealth" was an American enticement and the slightest signs of "mental slavery" will happen and something that smart people in the United States are most afraid of - to turn flow of smart and passionate people to America.

    No matter what his price is. The country for which the whole world works (in one way or another), and which prints world currency, can afford any expenses. And given that all the more or less valuable brains of the world, including Russia, are being thrown there for a long dollar, they can all succeed. Fight off with conventional weapons does not work. Only the buildup and deep modernization of the nuclear triad will allow Russia to survive.
