Five foreign myths about the Su-57 fighter


The foreign press pays great attention to the new generation Su-57 Russian fighter, more often in a negative way. The myths about the aircraft repeat each other, and their main goal is to discredit a serious competitor of American fighters.


Fears about the creation of a fifth-generation fighter in Russia are interspersed in foreign (not only American and European) media with constant search for shortcomings and weaknesses that you can cling to in order to once again wreck the Su-57 and the Russian aircraft industry as a whole.

The real “balm for the soul” for the United States and its allies was India’s refusal to purchase Su-57, although initially the Indian leadership was going to be very active in a joint project with the Russians to create their own fighter based on the Russian one. At the same time, the Western press refers to the opinion of the Indian military.

The sources of criticism of the Russian aircraft, according to media reports, is Marshal aviation India Simhakutti Warthaman, responsible for the implementation of the FGFA project. It was the Indian military who formulated the main claims against the Su-57, which are now being circulated in the Western media.

Lack of a modern engine


In the popular publication The National Interest, analyst Dave Majumdar writes that the Su-57 fighter has 2 temporary dual-circuit turbojet engines with an afterburner AL-41F1 of NPO Saturn. In fact, Majumdar emphasizes, these are the same engines that were installed on the existing Su-35S fighter. In the West, the engines used in the Su-57 are considered obsolete, not meeting the standards of the fifth generation aircraft.

Therefore, the Indian military said that in the framework of the Advanced Multirole Combat Aircraft (AMCA) project to create a fifth-generation combat aircraft for the needs of the Indian Air Force, New Delhi will use American, French or British engines that have the "best" characteristics.

Underdeveloped stealth technology


The stealth technology in the Su-57 also claims. The Indian military said that Russia only created a certain appearance of using stealth technology on the Su-57, and in fact, the fighter is not so invulnerable to the enemy’s aviation and air defense. About the fact that the desire to minimize radar visibility inevitably affects the flight characteristics of the aircraft, of course, not a word. But the Indians considered an insufficient level of invisibility to be the reason not to attribute the Su-57 to fifth-generation aircraft.

Missile and radar issues


In India, they were also dissatisfied with the Su-57 missile weapons, which, according to Indian military experts, do not have sufficient accuracy. The Indian command did not like the radar equipment of the Russian aircraft, which was also considered obsolete and did not meet modern tasks.

Lack of intelligible production


Also in India and in the West, they drew attention to the lack of intelligible production of the Su-57. Now there are only prototypes of the fifth generation aircraft, and one of them not so long ago crashed in the Far East. The latter circumstance, of course, was a serious blow to the image of the Russian aircraft, but the Western press and the Russian liberal publications echoing it inflated this event to an incredible scale and had already predicted that no one would buy the Su-57 from Russia at all.

Financial difficulties


They also like to speculate about financial problems that Russia supposedly will inevitably face in deciding to launch serial production of the Su-57. Meanwhile, at the prices of the global aviation market, the Su-57 is very cheap, almost at the level of fourth-generation fighters. Naturally, many countries are interested in acquiring such an aircraft for such money, and if India decided to refuse the contract, then this is its problem - let it overpay for American companies.

Interestingly, when in December 2019 there was information about the upcoming signing of a contract for the supply of Su-57 to Algeria, foreign media immediately rushed to express their strong opinion: Algeria will not become the first buyer of the Su-57, since it died of a heart attack on December 23, 2019 79-year-old Major General Ahmed Hyde Salah, who served as chief of staff of the country's armed forces and was considered the main "lobbyist" of the acquisition of Algeria Su-57.

It is clear that there are problems with the implementation of the project. But something else is important here. Foreign media openly use any pretext, any event even indirectly related to the Su-57 (such as the death of an Algerian general) to once again criticize the Russian plane. What to do, the fight for the buyer in the global arms market is becoming increasingly fierce, and criticism of the Su-57 is also a component of the general information war against Russia.

      Here in the branch about comparing the number of SU-57 and F-35, three Kamaz excrement droppers were also thrown on the fan.
      It is necessary to convince the local public that everything with the SU-57 is bad, but the 500 F-35 is directly out of competition.
      I’m silent about the fact that the F-35 is not close to the 5th generation fighter ... that’s okay ... but 500 units are against the absence of the SU-57 series. And it doesn’t matter for these individuals that the SU-57 is a HEAVY MFI, and the F-35 is an average under-attack aircraft. It is important to throw these same three Kamaz, excuse me, shit on the fan.
      Citizens seropogonniki, when was the last time you looked at a map? Your dullness lies on the surface ... F-35 radius of action and the distance between our borders with the USA take a look.

        What is the article about? The fact that someone is criticizing there? So what? What do we care? Our kulibins made a plane which they could make. Does he suit us? Today, yes. Is there a complaint to him? Maybe experts have it, we don’t know. It is important that he is. And the series is already contracted. Not buying yet? Nothing, survive. I hope that the Kulibins have begun work on the 6th generation.

    The author has big problems with logic. An airplane that is not produced in commercial quantities cannot compete with serial products. The campaign is premature, first we see the series, then we'll talk about "discrediting". Well, NI is that garbage dump, there are decent publications too, why dig into the trash?

    Well, apparently, there is no urgent need to increase the production of Su-57, because shtatovskie machines, too, can be called a full stretch of the 5th generation. From the inflated public relations of the company, their Fu-35 will not get better, and applying anti-radar coverage almost after each departure is generally the "top" of invisibility technology. They need to recapture the costs of its production, that’s what they’re pushing it to all their partners and vassals. The operation of the Fu-35 is very costly, and therefore they fly infrequently. Su-57 is systematically preparing for serial production, and not only the machine itself, but also everything related. Those. completely the whole complex. And along the way, technologies are running in for generation 6. And we needlessly roll in money for the war, but we must be ready. And since "friends with partners" did not attack us, it means that while we are on the right track and there is no room for panic. soldier

      I’ll start getting involved in a useless argument “who has longer” (who has better / worse planes and who matches what), but I’ll tell you one axiom checked by time: it’s better to have 10 thousand mediocre tanks than excellent vehicles, but in the amount of hundreds. They simply will not decide anything on such a battlefield. I hope the meaning and analogy are clear?

      Well, since they were so amicable on the Su-57, it means the car was a success.

      So after all, nothing has yet been achieved. Just today I read an interview with the director of the Russian tactical systems group Obnosov to the agency RIA Novosti about armament for the internal compartments of the Su-57. It turns out that in Russia today such weapons do not exist. Yes, there are weapons for strategic purposes, but not for dryers. It is necessary to solve the problem of creating weapons with wings and rudders expanding after launch. And the main thing. When starting such a weapon there are additional loads on the fuselage. I have questions. How many years have Su-57 been developed? Nearly 20? What, over the years, no one has ever thought that a stealth aircraft should carry weapons in its internal compartments? And what do you need special weapons for this? And if the issue is solved with weapons, I hope, they will solve it (although why only now? How many more years will the aircraft be unarmed in stealth mode)? then with the question of loads the question is more complicated. The plane went into series - and what, he is not able to use weapons from the internal compartments without redesigning? How many years will it take? And who will be responsible for the failure? Maybe somehow they can solve this problem in the framework of the current project? I don’t know ... So far, we have an airplane without a full-time engine, without full-time armament, with dubious stealth, they wrote to VO that not all the electronics are ready. So what kind of car is going into the series?

    The commission comes to the company. They check the whole day - everything is in order, there is nothing to complain about, by the evening the foreman sees - the main inspector writes joyfully something near the fire shield. Approaches and sees: list of flaws from 28 points:
    1. The shovel on the fire shield does not hang correctly, from south to north and not vice versa
    2. Shovel stalk 2 cm shorter than the set length
    3. The color of the shovel does not match the basic tone of the shield
    4. There are scratches and chips on the shovel
    etc.
    - Allow, tvsh major.
    He takes a shovel from the shield and throws it out.
    - So, cross out everything, write - there is no shovel.

    Why am I doing this.
    And the fact that the plane has not yet been adopted for service, that no one has ever seen it inside, but 28 have already been found.

              Lightning has a completely different concept of testing - to finish everything on the go. The aircraft was actually sold before official adoption, its deliveries began in the US Air Force and allied countries, and it was not even officially approved by the Pentagon for military tests! It was supplied with inoperative electronics, even an oxygen station did not work on it (a flight ban was even declared until this defect was eliminated). Then Lockheed invoiced customers for very indecent amounts of money to finish off the planes on the spot. If the KLA delivers such a crude product to the videoconferencing system, then it will simply be punished with a huge fine, and some will be fired. True, this is basically impossible, because The videoconferencing simply does not sign the test acceptance documentation. Il-112 VKS refused to buy, they said - redo (and redo). The Americans have a completely different concept of production and sale of the product, as well as its imposition: any rubbish is sold, and only afterwards to finish it.

                nonsense. They drove the raw Tu-22 (which Tupolev, in order to eliminate the jambs, had to redesign almost all of it again, turning it into a Tu-22M). Su-27 went raw, Su-24, I am silent about the T-64 tank. You, instead of writing the greatest nonsense, read the history of the creation and operation of weapons models.

                It is better to have a raw car than not to have any. And after the Su-57s begin to be exploited intensively, do you think the jambs will not come out? Yes, a whole heap. It is better to let them form earlier - they will eliminate it faster than they will eliminate it not on the first youth plane

    The Hindus recently scolded Russian tanks, and then rushed to ask the Russian Federation for a license to continue production of the T-90 in India ... The buzz of the Indians on the Su-57 is due to the refusal of the Russian Federation to transfer the key Su-57 technologies to India, so the Indians in transferring key technologies to their cars, to their disappointment, were refused in the west ...

      In fact, the same Indians then joyfully squealed that they liked the Su-57 and they would buy it as soon as it began to arrive in series in the Russian Air Force.
      Statements of the Indians are not related to the desire to acquire technology. They cannot simply be physically mastered, even if passed to them. It’s like transferring a monkey to a computer. Their statement is due to the fact that they simply do not have money and they save, and changed their minds about investing in the development of a 5th generation fighter. They want to buy a finished car, and preferably cheaper, without investing a penny of their money in the development and production.

    Liberals are to blame for the fact that Russian planes are falling in general :-)
    However, the author apparently poorly (or selectively) reads extracts from foreign media - for the place of our chief critic on the Su-57 with the United States, China has long been able to argue, quite a lot of skepticism about our plane, and certainly not dying to mention its brainchild, the same "dark horse".
    Now all this stealth bacchanalia is essentially an attempt by all developed states to shove their "pig in a poke", both from the point of view of rubbing horror to their opponents, and from the point of view of concluding promising import contracts.
    A plane as a plane - flies, modern avionics, from the 5th generation they expect unconditionally low visibility as the basis of the concept of combat, and as the second pillar of this concept - accurate, long-range missiles with a good target detection system. A sort of flying sniper in general. Of course, the question arises here - which of these three factors is a priority? The Americans are making a clear air "sniper", which in their view will effectively combine control over the situation, range, stealth as a tool for their survival / penetration and intelligence. The Chinese are creating a plane that is likely aimed at maximizing the scrambling of the American concept — minimum ESR, maximum maneuverability and dominance through mid-range combat. Apparently our concept is generally skeptical about all these games in the distance of detection and attack - certainly taking into account this and that, we nevertheless have the impression that we are again making a good and classic aircraft as part of some complex of forces. That is not a duel and not a counter-duel. Probably our experts believe that, firstly, avionics and maneuverability are priority, and secondly, we consider the fighter as part of a complex of forces, and not as an exceptionally powerful and self-sufficient means.
    So we should not be upset by the misunderstanding of potential buyers of our concept - it is quite traditional for us to create equipment for a complex of other means, and not for counteraction / race with individual foreign models.

    Well, since they were so amicable on the Su-57, it means the car was a success. If there was a bad plane, they wouldn’t want it like that.

      The 2014 statements were absolutely true - given that if there were no SANCTIONS. Anti-Russian bots are silent about the fact that after 2014, the foreign element base in the Su-57 had to be replaced with a Russian one, and in order to do this, whole plants had to be built from scratch. I repeat once again: whole production. And then design the necessary components and systems and test them, make changes to the initial project, which had a completely different specification. Those. the fact that by 2020 Su57 reached serial production is simply a miracle; for this, the UAC must have worked 24 days without holidays or weekends.

    I think this is a large and powerful aircraft that can compete fiercely with American aircraft

    there is no urgent need to increase the production of Su-57, because shtatovskie machines can also be called a full stretch of the 5th generation

    I’ll start getting involved in a useless argument “who has longer” (who has better / worse planes and who matches what), but I’ll tell you one axiom checked by time: it’s better to have 10 thousand mediocre tanks than excellent vehicles, but in the amount of hundreds. They simply will not decide anything on such a battlefield. I hope the meaning and analogy are clear?


    In addition to tanks, we still need to build kindergartens, schools and roads, pay salaries to doctors and teachers. If you want as many Su57s as F35s are released, you simply destroy the Russian economy and eat doshirak instead of bread and butter, if you don't die of starvation at all. One and a half trillion American money has been invested in F35, in INTERNATIONAL cooperation. Funding went directly from several countries, and plants for the production of complete sets are located in several countries. And then, so far the F35 has not been brought to mind.
    Russia makes the Su57 absolutely ONE. Exclusively only at the expense of their own production, only their own brains and their own, very modest money.
    Everything needs a reasonable balance. Here is an order for 75 Su-57, - this is just the very reasonable amount that is needed for this period.

    if foreign partners are discussing, then the plane is excellent.
