In India, revealed the design details of the air intakes of the future 5 generation fighter AMCA

On the eve of "Military Review" cited data from a report by the Indian Air Force, where it was stated that the first flight of the Indian fighter of the 5 generation of the AMCA program will take place in the 2032 year. At this stage, the overall design of the aircraft is being developed, and a comprehensive technical task is being prepared.


Against this background, Indian media published material that provides some data on the plans for the development of the fifth generation fighter. As stated, the work is being carried out towards the implementation of “ultra-low visibility” technologies and design features that allow reaching supersonic cruising speed without afterburner.

It is noted that the Indian developers are faced with the task of reducing the percentage of use of "radioactive" materials. Ideally, composite materials should prevail in aircraft construction. The only problem is that at the moment, India is not included in the circle of states that have a developed industry for the creation of composites for aircraft construction. There are separate developments, but this is not enough for mass production; proprietary technologies are significantly inferior, for example, to American or Japanese.

Meanwhile, an image of 3D modeling of the “radio visibility” of the front of the future Indian aircraft appeared - based on the original AMCA fuselage model. A computer model of the load in the wind tunnel also appeared.


The main factor in reducing stealth is air intakes. To increase the "stealth parameters", it is planned to use the so-called serpentine air intakes, as well as a special protrusion in front of the fighter's air inlets.

Indian developers promise that an acceptable version of the appearance of the fifth generation fighter under the AMCA program will appear in 2020 year.

    Yeah ... while the Indians are preparing to produce their "invisibility" the topic will cease to be relevant what

      The conversation in the article is about air intakes, and for some reason you all are talking about women!

      Well, the beginning has been made, now all that’s left is to create an industry with its own technologies - composite, titanium, lithium aluminum, aircraft turbojet engine manufacturing of 1,2,3,4,5 generations, electronic, computer, navigation, make avionics and ejection seats - well I think in 12 years they will have time in 2032 ... laughing

        I have worked with Indians. Very informative. And I went a little when I heard about a new 5th generation airplane. Of course they (judging by work) they are not stupid people. There is no doubt. But their approaches to solving any problems are standard to disgrace. They are good at solving simple standard problems with possible solutions 1-2-3 of three possible. Many would argue that what about their IT? To which I would say "It is necessary to wash more often." (DMB). The array that they write is not distinguished by the good quality of the algorithms. Ask any sensible programmer. They are "bribed" by writing the blocks of the program with very specific requirements and only from what they write "for three pennies." But this, too, does not always work, since adding software and fixing bugs later becomes a pain. The example of Boeing Max aircraft is indicative. So, now a masterpiece air intake instead of an airplane and a discussion of its coolness causes me only laughter. "Hindi Rus Phai Phai" (DMB).

          Listen, you don’t even have to graduate from Moscow State University or Harvard to understand that Russia and the United States have been approaching this for 60 years since 1945, and they want it in 12 years, of course you can do this if you allocate $ 20 billion and buy (of course, not legal) all scientists and technology, because legally no one will sell and no one will allow it to be done, and where to get that kind of money in India, and an airplane for that kind of money will cost $ 200 million, 2 times more than the Su-57 or F-35 ...

          Interestingly, and with whom did not happen? You do not have a company, but some kind of international consortium.

      Not - but rather, or the padishah will die or donkey. Although, perhaps, this ambitious project will soon die as soon as they move from computer graphics to real design.

    For the sake of sports interest, I would like to compare the 3D-image of the “radio visibility” of the front of the Indian with our 57th. Well, also with the American and the Chinese.

        You can at least with European developments, is also interesting.
        But if we talk about the design of the air intakes, then only the 35th and the Chinese have the most optimal form of air intake in terms of stealth, the outer side runs onto the fuselage, see for yourself:

          In which place?
          There is an influx in front of the wing and nothing more.

            So I also spoke about it. Even greater influx on their newest J-31, for good reason! And our 57th marks this place on the radar of the Israelis, the competent Vojaka-uh recently mentioned this on the forum.

              The influx is just an influx.

              Red - The influx of the wing.
              Blue - The junction of the console with the fuselage.
              Yellow - Air Intake.
              In the J-20, the air intake is almost straight, it changes shape only above the internal armament compartment and the influx has nothing to do with it.

                Even in this picture you can see that the cockpit and nose cover at least half of the forehead of the turbine, and what section of the air intake channel the Chinese FIG show, the other half is stopudo closed! And if you look closely and think a little, it’s clear that the weapons compartment covered the entire forehead !!

                  and what section of the air intake channel the Chinese FIGs will show

                  So where do the conclusions come from if you don't know anything?
                  And if you look closely and think a little, it’s clear that the weapons compartment covered the entire forehead !!

                  What to look at? These pictures are only speculations and nothing more. You looked into the air intake to assert?

                    Well, if we don’t argue that the Chinese’s turbine forehead is closed, then figs with it. By the way, the author of the picture also did not look into the air intake channel, but suggested and drew.

        And if so - they specifically show details, maybe someone who knows will cut short and point to obvious schools? What is not an option?

          And they do so, social networks are a wonderful source of information, as well as society’s cesspool ... at the same time ... Even our government does this - starts listening and listens to reactions, such as "according to an exclusive source close to ..." Who is more honest, he openly speaks - for public discussion ... And all the secret will be revealed, and the truth will be called a lie, and a lie - the truth ... (not quite copirate but like that laughing )

    By that time - the “good” neighbor China was stamping 300 J-20s, the Hindus had clearly miscalculated by the time the project was being implemented — and leaving the joint project with Russia had thrown India into outsiders.

    In the meantime, an image of 3D modeling of the “radio visibility” of the front of the future Indian aircraft appeared - based on the original AMCA fuselage model.

    The photo shows the same “penguin” that inspired the Chinese air intakes on the J-20.
    In general, it is somehow strange to start designing with air intakes. For starters, I would be puzzled by the engine, which will be relevant in the year 2035. And taking into account the experience of creating Arjun and Tejas, so in the year 2050.
