"And by 2040 we will have an air taxi": India comments on the timing of the appearance of the 5th generation fighter

17

The other day in the Indian press there was a material in which the author Neelam Matthews announced the acceleration of work in the country to create a new generation fighter. Voennoye Obozreniye spoke about the intensification of Indian work on the AMCA project on July 24.


India said that the first flight of the fifth generation fighter is planned as early as 2024, although it was previously said that this would happen no earlier than 2030. In the material of the Indian author, repelling from the words of the former commander-in-chief of the country's Air Force, it was noted that "India does not need either the Su-57 or the F-35" - instead, it needs to create its own fifth-generation fighter and develop its export potential.

Such statements, as it turns out, were received ambiguously in India itself. Users note the irrepressible optimism of the author of the statement about "the first flight of AMCA in 2024," adding that if this happens, then there will hardly be at least something Indian in the design and avionics of the fighter.

Here are some comments on this in the Indian media and blogosphere.

Dhruv Jaiswal:

Gentlemen, do you know how long it took in the United States to develop a fifth generation fighter? They created their F-35 for about 19 years. And today the Americans continue to work on the implementation of the program and the development of technologies.

Pankaj Badola:

Well, so I can predict. By 2040, we will have an air taxi, and by 2070, we will still learn to do without French and Russian fighters and Israeli radars.

Raj Kamal Devashwar:

Then we must be sure that the fifth generation aircraft being created will be truly excellent, otherwise no excuses will be accepted. The huge money allocated shouldn't be a casino bet.

Rokit Krishna:

AMCA in such a time will not be an excellent aircraft a priori. We don't even have our own engine. So far, the hope is for the foreign F414. A fifth-generation fighter will have to mature for a long time after the first flight.

        In China, the tea is delicious and the rice is not bad. wink
        If a big mess starts, India will get stuck.
        And here the reliability of the supplier will matter.
        But nobody will give them engines for free.
        The Indians will have to invest very serious money.
        The Indians have this money. It's just not hot yet.
        And we can offer a universal engine.

    It seems to me that by that time everyone who is in the subject will already do something next, or even begin to create spacecrafts !!!

    "India does not need either Su-57 or F-35" - instead, it needs to create its own fifth generation fighter and develop its export potential
    Oh well. Of course they are not needed, because India is a "great aviation power". In the meantime, in the Air Force with a pine forest and constant bargaining with possible sellers of weapons. Probably still you need to be more modest.

    They know how to launch rockets into space, but they don't know how to make airplanes. You can't understand these Indians.

    They will have airplane carpets and whiteman laughing as they washed in the Ganges and will continue. In Delhi, only more or less civilization, in other cities at least shoot a film, about the future after a global catastrophe, continuous scenery

    Apparently in India there are people who not only sing and dance, but also know how to look at things soberly.

    They are good at singing and dancing, marching beautifully, dragging heavily into mathematics and programming, and would be doing it. Well, they cannot produce complex technical systems, well, they cannot! So the sad experience of tank building and our own fighter already exists.

    They will make a car with a glider from the fifth generation and the internals of the fourth. Moreover, the insides will not be of Indian origin and the plane will in fact be foreign, and therefore wildly expensive. India will also vryatli develop weapons for this bird.
    The export potential of this machine will also be low due to foreign components, it will be necessary to ask permission for resale.

    It is the Indians who "took over" the baton of wet dreams from the Chinese!
    Those also launched the fifth generation into production, but with parameters not even reaching the third.
    The main thing is to say, what if someone believes ??? laughing laughing laughing
