The Pearl of Russian Aviation: French Capital's publication on the Su-57 is being discussed in Russia


The world media divided into two information camps when publishing their estimates of the fifth-generation fighter Su-57. Moreover, the barricades between these camps are such that sometimes the same channels and publications can go from one side to the other, publishing materials often of a different nature.


So, in the Chinese press, Russian newest fighters can criticize, and in a few days issue material that this is a unique military equipment in terms of maneuverability and combat effectiveness. And the authors themselves, this approach, apparently, is not particularly embarrassing.

That is why when a material with a negative expressed by the author or reverence for the Su-57 appears in a foreign publication, this does not mean at all that the opinion cannot, so to speak, transform after some time - depending on the “moods” .

Therefore, the material of the French edition of Capital about the Su-57 that caused a stir in Russian expert circles should be evaluated first of all without undue emotions. As they say, they can also “change shoes”. What material are we talking about?

And this is an article in which the author admires the fifth-generation fighter Su-57. According to him, the demonstrated Su-57 aerobatics demonstrate its exceptional maneuverability. The author adds that the plane is made of composites for a quarter, has reduced visibility for the enemy radar, as well as a large radius of action - up to 1750 km. Separately, the author reminds readers that the Russian Su-57 were tested in Syria. Capital calls the Su-57 "the pearl of the Russian aviation".

In principle, nothing new was voiced by the French author. That is why the material should be considered as one of many foreign ones, where admiration for the Su-57 aircraft alternates with attempts to publish anti-PR and vice versa.

Recall that at the moment, the Su-57 is being prepared for deployment to the Russian Armed Forces.

      It's good that they write ... it means they show interest in this aircraft ... additional advertising will not hurt him. smile

        So we did it for sale or equip our aircraft.

          The more hype, the more interest in the aircraft is heated up, which in turn will be in Russia's hands when the export version of the Su-57 enters the global arms market ...

          For some time it will be in service with our VKS ... then, as usual, they will start selling abroad ... Putin promised Erdogan something like that.

            Erdogan, let the Su-35 be satisfied :: Idlib had a great deal of self-esteem with a keen desire to get his sticky hands on him and does not understand that this could be achieved only with the consent of Russia, and not against her will!
            And in general, there is nothing to meddle with the cloth snout in the ranks!

    A beautiful airplane and beautiful camouflage. I wonder if the nozzles would be rectangular does it positively or negatively affect the flight performance?

      Azdefence..Beautiful airplane and camouflage beautiful. I wonder if the nozzles would be rectangular does it positively or negatively affect the flight performance?

      The rectangular nozzle deflects the thrust vector only in the vertical plane, and the “round” one - asymmetrically (in all directions), which greatly improves maneuverability.

      Very negatively, because you can just think and understand that at the point of changing the shape of the cross section, traction loss occurs, plus the OBE becomes only vertical.

    The journalist urgently needed to fill out a column. Do not leave empty space. So he "wrote" some banality. He could write that the Volga flows into the Caspian Sea, or that the Moon is a natural satellite of the Earth. It would be more honest.

    And maybe, without looking at these scribbles, just put the aircraft into service? And then, after all, let's get to the point that we will start releasing only the equipment that the adversary will praise - type Il2 in the new version? ??

      You can be understood in such a way that they still haven’t put it into service just because they “look back at the scribbles”

    In general, any weapon must show, prove that it took place as a WEAPON and has the properties that are attributed to it. The difficult question is that this is a means of destruction !!!! and applying \ showing \ proof can be tragic for many.
    Sho say, sho say, YES NOTHING! I don’t feel like talking, showing, proving.

    SU-57 is somewhat similar to the Aurus car.
    Well, they collected a few cars, but will this solve the transport needs of Russia.
    So is the SU-57. While put on stream, outdated, if not a glider, then electronics.
    And the quantity will not satisfy the need.
    Indeed, Russia is an impressive country. But only.

        Even for American aviation, the F-22 turned out to be too expensive and its production has long been discontinued.
        For electronics, 15-20 years is a period critical to reliability. So that...

          So on the F-22 20 MHz processors from the 80s were replaced with 200+ MHz, as it were. And he flew so well.

      While the military review will learn to follow the news, and the contract for 76 production vehicles by 2028 is already a year soon, the Su-57 will indeed become obsolete and will be discontinued.

    If it was a truly worthy competitor to its Western counterparts, then India would not have missed its chance, but the Hindus, having familiarized themselves with the TTX, decided to leave the program. Here is a real indicator, not just any articles.

      India left another program, this time. And secondly, India is primarily interested in technology transfer for local production, which they refused. And thirdly, for that matter, what is stopping India from buying Western 5th generation aircraft?

        India is betting on its project of the 5th generation AMCA fighter and therefore they do not need either the F-35 or Su-57 they needed other people's technology to create their own fighter, but naturally no one was going to transfer them, so they left the project. Indians produce their light fighter Tejas, which costs more than the 5th generation heavy fighter Su-57. That is, they rely on their fighters in the future, although they can also buy a couple of dozen Rafales to peek at the French.

      The opinion of the Indians, who cannot even build a 4th-generation light fighter on an imported engine, is undoubtedly an indicator. Well, as the Indians decide for 20 years what they generally buy, and how they manage to sit on all the possible nails, this is generally a separate song. Only the epic with the sale of an aircraft carrier by him, when the Indians saved on everything, ours did everything on a contract, and then it turned out that this was not enough and the repair as a result turned out to be longer and more expensive than if it were carried out immediately in full, which costs.

    At the moment, the Su-57 is the only truly multi-functional fighter with LTX, significantly superior to those of the previous generation. It’s just a fact, neither the F-22, which is cool in the sky, but useless as a drummer, nor the F-35, which is simply F / A-18E on a new level, just not as beautiful, nor the J-20, which is just bad attempt in the F-22, without the appropriate engines and aerodynamics, are not.

    Therefore, the material of the French edition of Capital about the Su-57 that caused a stir in Russian expert circles should be evaluated first of all without undue emotions. As they say, they can also “change shoes”. What material are we talking about?

    The publications are different and the magazines are different. Each has his own methods of PR and each has his own orders from those who dance them. Therefore, opinions change, depending on whose backside you need to lick.

    As Professor Preobrazhensky said, one should not read the press before dinner. NOBODY really knows what this machine is all about. This is known only to people who work DIRECTLY with this aircraft. Therefore, do not pay attention to any publications. There is nothing in them that is consistent with the truth. The main thing is only one indicator. The aircraft was tested in Syria in combat conditions and more than once. So the run-in was quite normal, shortcomings were identified and work was done to eliminate them. The plane is being prepared for launch in a series. This is a certain indicator. Everything else is from the evil one.

    The aircraft will be brought up to the 5th generation with new engines. But mass production apparently will not be for objective reasons. It is unlikely that there will be an export prospect. All the same as with F22.
    Now it’s obvious that F35 is being built in large quantities and widely exported. The result was a successful, really massive aircraft.
