Military Review

In the USA, they named the winner in a hypothetical clash between Su-35 and Su-57

73
Su-35 is the most effective fighter ever created by Moscow. Although the aircraft is primarily designed to gain superiority in the air, it is able to prove itself as a powerful means of hitting ground targets. This opinion was expressed by the National Interest publication.




According to him, although outwardly this machine resembles a Su-27, it is a completely new product, like the modern Boeing F / A-18E / F Block II or Block III, created on the basis of the McDonnell Douglas F / A-18A Hornet.

The Su-35 turned out to be so effective that many in Russian military circles are wondering if the Su-57 following it is worth the time and money spent on it.

- writes the designated edition.

These moods are fueled by the absence (at least for the moment) of the power plant adequate for the Su-57, the so-called “second stage engine”. Without it, the new model cannot demonstrate a noticeable increase in combat capabilities. Against this background, the limited order of the Ministry of Defense for the supply of Su-57 becomes clear.

It is unlikely that the Russians will make the basis of their Air Force out of PAK FA. It is much more likely that Moscow will continue to modernize its Su-30СМ and Su-35С fleet, equipping these aircraft with avionics taken from the Su-57

- NI believes, indicating that "the modernization of fourth-generation aircraft is much easier than replenishing the fleet with the latest systems, so Russia should rely on them, forgetting about the Su-57."

According to the American magazine, which gives a certain provocation, the Su-35 has more chances to win in the event of a hypothetical confrontation with the Su-57.

At the same time, it was added that the American experience of upgrading to the F / A-18E / F Block III version showed that new equipment is able to turn old aircraft into a worthy competitor for the latest products.

        The Su-57 turned out to be so dangerous for the Americans that they decided to pursue their interests through such articles so that Russia abandoned the Su-57 and their F-35 would not have a competitor in the battle. That the Americans do not write about their effectiveness the latest version of the F-15 and in this regard about the unwillingness to buy F-35. See no fools sitting there. Refusing the Su-57 or lobbying for this refusal is equivalent to the betrayal of Russia. China is betting on the J-20.

          Are you a lawyer? It seems not, otherwise the Constitution and the Supreme Court would not have been written with a small letter. laughing
          I explain. All laws and decisions of the courts of the Russian Federation must comply with the Constitution of the Russian Federation and until the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation or another court of higher jurisdiction has decided otherwise (and for the Armed Forces it is only the Constitutional Court or the plenum of the Armed Forces), it is considered that they comply with it. Decisions of international courts may naturally not comply with the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
          THEREFORE, if the decisions of these courts contradict the decisions of our courts, then our decisions are in effect, or rather, in the event of a contradiction, our court of next instance simply makes a decision in favor of our court with the wording I wrote to you. Again, the plaintiff may appeal this decision in the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation, referring to the decision of the international court. Only the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation will decide in favor of ours. yes

          Yes, not so. What is the connection between the decisions of the international court and our constitution!? All decisions of the international court are politicized and in many cases are not fair. And how many of them were, for example, in Ukraine or the United States, that they were implemented? International courts are a demonstration of the policies that are pursued in the region. For example, can an international court annul the decisions of our court !? No, he can not.

      There is no international law. There are agreements on the recognition of cross-border jurisdiction of organizations by the parties. Russia joined the ECHR - thereby recognizing the right to apply the laws of Western Europe, or even just Dutch, on the territory of Russia. The USA does not recognize the ECHR - and all the Europeans 'claims for the murders of relatives, the Americans' imprisonment without charge - go through the woods, the ECHR does not even accept such cases for consideration. The legitimacy of the Stockholm Arbitration was recognized - and please, you can make claims against it in Russian companies according to the Swedish law. And not for non-existent international.

      And our government is actively helping them in this. Back in the days when Rogozin was in charge of defense issues, he said that - "We have a lot of developments in the field of new weapons, but the problem is that we have a sorely lack of specialists and workers to implement them."
      Meanwhile, not more than a month ago, it was announced that in a couple of years in Russia they would stop teaching in some specialties such as a turner, milling machine operator, etc. Gref says that we need to tie up with mathematics and in general we don’t need so many engineers. With this approach, in 15-20 years, there really will be no one to do with us, not just planes, but scooters.

      The industry cannot be simultaneously converted to new products, which is why production of some old equipment is parallel with the launch of new ones. And that technique was not completely outdated. I16 Monsieu fought until the end of the war.

      I don’t understand what the mistake was before the war. The same KV and T-34 tanks are very new, and the MIG and LAGG planes are also not quite old, and the artillery also had many new systems, especially large caliber ones, and the famous Katyusha was released in the first months of the war. Small arms PPSh, PPD, SVT SVS were also not inferior to the German ones, or even higher. Well, what was the modernization?

        I meant that despite the fact that there were already new aircraft, and the industry still produced I-153, I-15bis, I-16, maybe this was a mistake, because the command was confident that the performance characteristics of these machines were sufficient, and it turned out to be completely absent, with the exception of the latest modifications of the I-16, and then not for long. I do not affirm the second, I doubt and are interested in knowledgeable people.
        The development of new models, and the work on deep modernization of the I-15 were carried out almost in parallel. So I ask if the Su-35 is useless in a fight with the f-22 in a real collision, or is its performance characteristics enough to successfully deal with this aircraft, and if not, then maybe it’s not worth spending resources on the Su-35, but focus on the Su-57 XNUMX, and it’s just hard for an amateur to understand this question and ask the professionals.

          It is impossible to immediately switch to a new model, because the factories need to be adjusted to it, the time, resources, etc., so two models go further on to the Su-57. For example, before the war, the production of the T-34 tank began, but in many respects it was weak. After weighing everything, they made adjustments and received the T-34M model, but they could not launch the series, and riveted the T-34-76, at the end of the war, the T-34-85. The T34-M model came out at the end of the war under the name T-44 and, if I am not mistaken, did not take part in the battles. If the production of the T-34 had been stopped, the country would have been left without tanks, but the T-34 was being modernized throughout the war. Your fears are correct, but everything depends on the industry, on its ability to quickly master the new model. Well, something like this, I'm sorry I wrote a lot.

      A great example, though not from aviation - the T-34, with all its advantages, at the beginning of the war was an extremely fragile tank that few could repair, and the losses of the T-34 were often non-combat. Even in 1943, near the Kursk 300 km march could not withstand almost a third of the T-34, breaking down the road. True, the same T-28 was so inferior to the T-34 in almost all respects that the T-34 could forgive a lot.
      But in this case, the Su-35S is not particularly inferior to the Su-57.
      So a reliable "old" is better than a new one that is not really tested.
      At the same time, as far as I remember, the "old" Su-35S was adopted only last year ...

    Until they establish the serial production of Su57 (which is 50% of the problems when creating any product), the Su30 / 35 needs to be riveted and riveted. Now the MiG31 will also begin to leave the service and the Su27 .., Su24 .. and all this needs to be replaced with a single (or highly unified) aircraft. . Somewhere in the north, stealth is not needed, but a powerful AFAR and long-range missiles are needed.

      In the USSR, they made the 5-generation engine AL41F for Mig1.44. But they rejected Mig, decided to make PAK FA, and for him this engine was too large.
      The result was the following - for good, it was necessary for Su to create a new engine, however, since it was at the beginning of the 2000's that his development threatened to drag out - there was no money for the army then. So they made a decision on the one hand to make slowly a full-fledged dvigun, and on the other, to create an 1 stage engine combining the old Al31 with the technologies of the Migovsky Al41F. Moreover, the engine of the first stage is very good, from Al31 there is approximately 20%, and why everyone is so bad about it - it is decidedly impossible to understand

                That's not sure. It is written:
                At the end of 2012, an expanded scientific and technical council was held, in which all the research institutes of the industry, the Russian Ministry of Defense and the main customer, Sukhoi Design Bureau, participated. It considered the design solutions for the main components of the engine "Product 30", proposed by "Design Bureau named. A.Lulki »

                So, there is a strong feeling that these very constructive solutions were developed long before the 2012 r - otherwise you have to admit that the pace of creation of this engine (in the 2017 r was already tested on one of the T-50 instances) is amazing.
                That is, in my IMHO, the development of the 30 product began much earlier than 2012, but I can not strictly prove it hi

                  Designers may have thought about something, but in essence, development was not carried out. The development speed is really amazing, but for me it is better to think over such things in advance.

    In any case, the costs are not in vain. Let there be an intermediate result, a product ... at the moment, no one has shown much, better, proved.
    All the developments will go into action, in the next model!
    This is a normal evolution of military equipment .... simpler faster than before.
    It happened that new items had time to become obsolete already at the time of release. Science, technology do not stand still.

      In this case, you don’t need any races, you need to produce airplanes in stages, in small series, make changes with each new series, improving and modernizing certain components and systems, approximately the same as it was in the USA with the release of F-22, the rush here is absolutely inappropriate, the new sophisticated equipment is perfected for years, then it turns out to be the most reliable and efficient.

        A good thesis was accepted and ...- We did not have a war tomorrow! -
        At least for us, it’s important to keep vigorous forces on a platoon .... no one will even rock the boat! And for everything else, calm, systematic work for, indeed, the best result!

    There will be a panic among the Yankers if the second-stage engine on the SU-57 will work on other physical principles than all now available. The SU-57 with some kind of photon engine, eh? It's a pity that this is just my imagination. recourse
    Or maybe all the same ............?

      This phenomenon is inherent in everyone without exception, the indisputable thing is the facts. But the amount of scientific development and financing, in general, is too high among the Merikos.

    “It is unlikely that the Russians will make the basis of their Air Force out of PAK FA. It is much more likely that Moscow will continue to modernize its Su-30SM and Su-35S fleet, equipping these aircraft with avionics taken from the Su-57

    - says NI, pointing out that "modernization of fourth generation aircraft is much easier than replenishing the fleet with the latest systems, therefore, them Russia and should betforgetting about the Su-57 ".

    Wow !!! Those. Russia is given advice or guidance on what to do and which aircraft to promote to protect the Russian state! wassat I do not know what to say!!!

    At the same time, it was added that the American experience of upgrading to the F / A-18E / F Block III version showed that new equipment can turn old aircraft into a worthy competitor for the latest products

    Why was the F-35 needed then? Only for cutting money?

    It is unclear why involvement in the 5th generation of Su-57 fighters is so strongly associated in the press with the new engine. The increase in such excellent energy characteristics - yes, but what does the 5th generation have to do with it?
    It’s not about engines at all. The fifth generation is about stealth in the broad sense, including, in particular, directly radar, i.e. stealth.
    Over-maneuverability, or rather, significantly improved maneuverability, was one of the signs of the 4th generation, with the advent of multi-angle missiles, helmet-mounted target designation systems, is not so relevant.
    Cruising supersonic is also not entirely clear how it dramatically affects the effectiveness of a fighter in order to transfer it to the next generation. Cruising supersonic was still in the vertical twin-barrel “Lightning” of the 50s. Oddly enough, modern 4th-generation fighters also have it. Su-35, Rafal, Typhoon, the latest modifications of the Gripen - everyone has cruising supersonic speed. The Chinese don't seem to bother with the J-20 at all.
    Still, the new generation is something really new in the ideology of the design of the aircraft and its use, so that, conditionally, one fighter of the new generation could withstand pieces 3-5 of the previous one.

      Air combat missiles overcome a significant part of the path in energy; they cannot actively maneuver during such a flight. A maneuvering aircraft has a chance to evade, in addition it is a close air combat and a short take-off. Cruising supersonic allows you to quickly go to the interception area.

    It looks like they are sitting among our officials, as if to put it mildly, "not our people."

    Kudrin and Gref - as much as possible - "not our people." For example, thanks to Gref, Sberbank frantically tried to stay in Ukraine to the last. And for this I never came to Crimea.
    In general, Kudrin, and especially Gref, has so many sins that you are tormented to list.

    Of course not. But ... As I understand our developers, the second stage engine on supersonic will consume not much more fuel than in subsonic mode. And the supersonic flight range will be almost the same, that’s the point.
    At least they said that in an F-22 engine, supersonic sound is not an emergency (afterburner) mode, but at the same time it eats fuel three times more than when it is used up. What is called - feel the difference.
    So the engine of the second stage should raise the Su-57 to a height not reachable in the near future for competitors.

    Engines of the second stage are already there and the latter, it seems 3 planes, out of 12 already ordered by the Russian Ministry of Defense Su-57, will be with them

    In the USA, they named the winner in a hypothetical clash between Su-35 and Su-57

    Americans are fans of "Fantasies", If we compare the hypothetical rivals of the Su 35 with the F 15 and the same F 22, it is more logical!
