Former Italian pilot: Su-57 engines sound more like a siren

78

The foreign press pays attention to the sound of engines of the fifth generation Su-57 fighters of the Russian Aerospace Forces. For example, on the pages of The Aviationist, the Italian journalist and former pilot David Cenchetti draws attention to the fact that the engines of Russian combat aircraft emit a “howling sound” that is not typical of other new generation fighters.


The author notes that at the moment Russian Su-57s use AL-41F1 bypass turbojet engines from NPO Saturn.

David Cenchetti, a former pilot and author of several books on aviation topics, invites you to listen to the sound of working engines during a group flight of Russian fighters.

By The Aviationist:

The shooting took place several months ago, but it is still interesting, since it allows you to hear a very peculiar sound of the Su-57 engines.

Video from 2020 year:



The Italian author notes that it will hardly be possible to hear such a sound on new versions of Russian fighters, since the AL-41F1 will be replaced with engines of the second stage (second stage). We are talking about engines that are being worked on in our country within the framework of the Product 30 program. At least, this is how the second stage engines for the Su-57 are designated in open sources.

David Cenchetti:

The sound of the engine of the Su-57 fighter now looks more like a siren. For many aviation enthusiasts, this sound is still good to hear.

The Western press notes that this sound is partly due to the design of the air intakes used by Russian aircraft designers.

It should be noted that interest abroad in the Russian Su-57 fighter continues to grow. Added such interest, in particular, the recent tests of the Su-57 with an intra-fuselage hypersonic missile, which were recognized as successful.

      "Rus Ivan" has never sounded. You come up with a hat and do it.
      It sounded: "Attention, attention, in the sky Pokryshkin." Akhtung, akhtung, Pokryshkin in der lyuft!

          Yeah, that's how it was belay Straight from 41 years .... The phrase appeared in 43 and sounded - Ahtung, la funf in der lyuft. Since at that time the Fritzes did not yet know the weaknesses of the La-5, and then the La-5fn ... And to Pokryshkin, this was already picked up by the comrades of the military correspondents.

            Not necessarily military correspondents. This phrase is also mentioned in the autobiographical story "The Sky of War". It was pronounced by the mechanic Pokryshkin after the raid on their airfield, when Pokryshkin himself was not there.

            Pokryshkin from April-43, battle for Kuban, fought in an aircobra. And his entire regiment. So the phrase "attention, in the sky Pokryshkin" is no side to La-5.

              I was a little mistaken “Ahtung, akhtung! LA funf in der luft! " - "Attention attention! LA-5 in the air! " - this alarming warning of fascist observers first sounded in the Stalingrad sky in the fall of 1942. And Pokryshkin is still far away. And as you write, La 5 has no side to Pokryshkin. Sources: Wings of Victory, Kaberov I. A. "Swastika in sight". And there is "Akhtung, Akhtung! Safon in der lyuft!" 1942 North Sorokin Z.A. Stars on the fuselage. - M., DOSAAF, 1977.

                In fact, the Germans called La-5 the new "rata" (simply "rata", that is, the I-16 rat), since they usually did not know the name.

        This engine has a lot of heaped up air intake and nozzle. Pazmenny arc, which ensures ignition of fuel immediately after it enters the combustion chamber. Thanks to this, the optimal combustion mode is maintained, and the so-called. torch. The temperature of the gases in front of the turbine ranges from 1950 to 2100 ° K. For "ordinary" engines, this temperature does not exceed 1700. So this engine whistles like crazy. belay

      And what does it have to do with it, or not? The sound is really interesting. In pre-revolutionary Russia, wire beeps were tuned so that they would not just hum, but hum beautifully, in several tones. Maybe here, too, the designers tried to make the adversaries, upon hearing this sound, throw their weapons and run to change diapers.

      "In 1918, on the Tsaritsyn front, Soviet pilots" bombarded "the White Guard units with original" bombs "that emitted a strong howling sound when they fell to the ground. Howling bombs caused panic in the enemy camp. The Whites were convinced that this bomb was of special power.
      The howling aerial bombs of that time were rather primitive. In most cases, they were nothing more than metal cans (cans, from under aviation oil, etc., in which holes were perforated. When such a can flew in the air, it made a sharp, whistling, howling sound. "(C) laughing

        You don't look at the instruments "point-blank" in flight. Starting from admission to the flight school, when you pass the professional selection - there is such a test called "compass" or "clock". Those. in front of you there are 100 dials with arrows and in any of the corners of this dial there is an indication of time or direction. And SE (southeast, for example) can be located at the top or at the top left or in any other place), or time 12, 17 well, etc. And you have to sign a reading under each "alarm clock" for a limited time. Those. they check you how you orient yourself according to the indications of the arrows. Then you, having already entered, study the plane to the cog, you must draw the same dashboard with digitization and the division price as a keepsake.
        This is what I mean, in the air you "don't read" the device without taking your nose out of the tidy, but with your peripheral vision you see the position of the arrow and understand whether these readings are normal or not. The devices are different, the positions are different, the restrictions are different. In a simple training "bicycle" L-39, one of ours in the cockpits of the pilot and instructor counted 488 controls and displays. And after the combat materiel you sit in it and realize that the apparatus is empty and primitive in saturation. And when they started to study, they thought - "you will break your brain."
        So the indication of the increase in the dive speed by sound is nothing more than a fiction.

          here about the dial gauges:
          many specialists in the repair of electronic equipment still use analog multimeters (with an arrow and a set of scales)
          Why?
          because you don't need to look at it, the readings are read with peripheral vision
          it is much faster than reading the digital indicator readings with each measurement and fewer movements
          the same story with a classic watch, the time can be easily and quickly determined even without marking

          Actually, this is strictly official information. In addition to lateral vision, you also need to aim at the target on a dive. In addition, if you missed the altitude and did not drop the bomb, then no machine gun will take you out of the dive. So we were guided by the sound.

      The characteristic features of the Junkers Ju-87 (Thing) of the Ju 87В-1 series: an inverted gull wing, a fixed landing gear in fairings, on the landing gear there are air sirens (impellers), which allow the pilot to hear the dive speed without looking at the instruments ( the tonal pitch increased with increasing speed) and have a psychological demoralizing effect on the enemy. Also, the siren was necessary so that in the event of a failure of the automatic withdrawal from the dive, the pilot did not forget to remove the air brakes when the aircraft was taken out of the dive, since flight and climb with the brakes released is impossible.

        I haven't piloted a thing, but I read this:
        after detecting a target, the pilot pushed the plane down onto the left wing and began to dive (from 60 to 90 degrees) at an altitude of about 500-600 meters, the "reset" lamp came on
        the pilot pressed the corresponding trigger
        after reset
        at an altitude of no more than 400 meters, an automatic exit from the dive took place - the air brakes were turned on, the propeller was set to the "climb" mode (step-gas)
        even if the pilot lost consciousness from overloads (and there was only 6.5 ji there), the device will come out of the dive
        Well, and so the guys were also desperate, knowingly knocking them down and taking prisoners

          This thing is reborn as a phoenix from the ashes .. In February 2021, the American company Textron handed over to the US Air Force the first turboprop light combat aircraft Beechcraft AT-6E Wolverine ("Wolverine"). The aircraft almost exactly repeats the design of the Stuka with the only difference that the Wolverine has a retractable landing gear. The key point is the inverted gull wing. On the German dive bomber, this type of wing was used to reduce the height of the landing gear struts in flight and, thereby, reduce their aerodynamic drag. On the Wolverine, the reverse gull wing increases ground clearance and expands the ability to carry missiles and bombs. It seems that the "Wolverine", like the "Stuka" has a dive mode on the target. The cost of one flight hour during combat operations against militants in light turboprop dive attack aircraft is an order of magnitude less than that of jet aircraft.

                the thing initially was never an attack aircraft, but a dive bomber with amazing accuracy in its time and a good load
                he even did not use such a typical attack aircraft weapon as NARs

                propeller-driven attack aircraft are good for chasing all sorts of insurgents
                business of course is also good

    There is no sound like a siren.
    It all depends on how fast the sound source is approaching / receding. This effect occurs when the plane approaches and the sound frequency increases.
    When switching to supersonic, there will generally be a clap.
    If you think so, then supersonic aircraft fly with flaps [of wings)].

    On the forums, there is a version that such a characteristic sound of the Su-57 is due to radar blockers

    And besides Pokryshkin, no one flew? The phrase Rus Ivan generalizes ... if you do not understand this, then take off your hat ... blow your brains out ... hi

    And you do not generalize, but learn history and the reason for rudeness will disappear. Usually ignorant are rude, more arguments are dumb.

      Not a myth at all, the Germans listened to the Russians, the Russians listened to the Germans. Pokryshkin was definitely known as a seasoned ace.

        Well, why are you arguing as children?
        it is clear that the Germans did not mean Pokryshkin personally, but his unit, and if they are in the air, problems should be expected. and the Germans were perfectly informed who was in front of them on the site and with whom it was better not to get involved.

    The Italian author notes that it will hardly be possible to hear such a sound on new versions of Russian fighters, since the AL-41F1 will be replaced by engines of the second stage (second stage).
    Let's see and listen ...

    It is necessary that they still be written and scattered from this sound. Although the sound will not reach them for the most part, just a bright flash and the "light" went out.

    I noticed an unusual sound even when I saw it for the first time, and the Su-35 was training overhead for a whole month, seemingly with the same engine, but the T-50 still flying had a completely different sound

      High-frequency sound is heard when the aircraft approaches, it can be the source of the first compressor paddle wheel plus the effect of resonance in the air intake

    I don’t remember that sound from the Su-57. I remember the rumble, but in general they sounded the same as in the Su-30 and Su-35. And this sound is more like the sound of a passenger Tu-154.
