Indian observer: It makes no sense to create a PAK DA supersonic for Russia

Illustrative graphics



The Indian press is discussing the development in Russia of a promising long-range aviation complex aviation PAK YES. We are talking about a new generation strategic missile carrier, which will be able to operate, including in a network-centric version - with control of several attack drones.

Indian observer Priyesh Mishra writes that Russia announced the determination of the future appearance of the PAK DA amid the deepening crisis in relations with the United States.

It is indicated that the bomber will have a subsonic speed. At the same time, India presented their arguments in favor of the fact that it makes no sense to create a PAK DA supersonic for the Russian Federation. The main reason why Russia will create a promising subsonic missile carrier, according to the Indian observer, is due to the fact that it will be able to carry long-range hypersonic aircraft missiles.

It is noted that "it will be enough for the aircraft, unnoticed by the enemy's radars, to approach the launch range, so that later, using hypersonic cruise missiles, hit targets on the ground or at sea."

Priyesh Mishra:

This bomber will be able to use various types of missile weapons, including hypersonic missiles with nuclear warheads. Russian experts have studied the capabilities of American radars, and therefore we can say that it will not be difficult for him to launch from a sufficient distance.

The Indian expert notes that PAK DA "will be able to control an entire army of shock and reconnaissance-strike drones, including giving them a command to overcome the enemy's air defense shield."

Mishra:

And if it will be up to a hundred drones, then no air defense system will definitely cope with them.

While talking about a hundred drones, of course, it is premature, but a hypothetical such a possibility may well be realized. And they pay attention to it abroad.

      he doesn't seem to teach Russians.
      but he says quite reasonable things.
      you can suddenly reach the launch distance in 2 ways
      speed (tu160)
      stealth (pakda)

          That's right, and the radius is significantly reduced. And what is the point in it? No one is going to break through the enemy's air defense, in the presence of long-range missiles, it is enough to quietly fly in to work on the target and leave unnoticed

            I meant this:
            speed is needed not to break through air defense, but as an opportunity to suddenly be at the launch point. no need to enter the air defense zone with long-range missiles.

              Well, "suddenly" is unlikely ... But to have the "opportunity to be at the launch point" is another matter ... and if there is also "the opportunity to escape in time after the launch ..." - it's worth a lot! wink

                There is such a thing as building up forces and means in a given sector or area. This is where speed matters. It is not for nothing that the cruising supersonic sound on promising 5th generation aircraft is set, the time is important here and not small. The strategists may not be so tight because the planning of strategists' strikes is planned and coordinated a lot earlier, but I think that when waging a real war, this need will arise, there are already a lot of factors to take into account, starting from the cost of both production and operation, and the need to have one or the other. ... I think all this has already been taken into account when issuing TTZ.

                Yes, you don’t understand. The aircraft under the START treaty is counted as one nuclear charge. Therefore, aircraft have an immediate advantage in terms of the number of available charges, compared to a ground-based launcher. And secondly, an aircraft in the air over its territory is invulnerable, and a ground installation is vulnerable, especially a stationary one.
                And yet - the ability to stay in the air longer and a greater range for the strategist is much more important than his speed. In addition, a subsonic aircraft is cheaper, which means more of them can be built.

              If it was only a matter of range, then the presence of mbr would suit everyone.
              There is still an approach time. That is why they invented the BRSD, SSBN and strategic bombers.
              Short approach time - the enemy will not have time to reach the bunkers.

          wrong! a huge amount requires the operation of engines on afterburner.
          in addition, combining the ability to move at supersonic speed and stealth coverage is quite problematic.
          since Now, even for fighters, non-afterburning supersonic is a difficult topic, hence the simple conclusion - at the moment, a subsonic inconspicuous hulk is more effective.
          the variable geometry option does not roll very smoothly either.
          practice has shown that a heavy subsonic bomber can still be useful in any situation.

        Supersonic will allow PAK DA to quickly reach the line of attack, break away from enemy interceptors, and increase the range of cruise missiles.

          Well, for these tasks - there is a Tu-160! This one can break away from the F-35 without difficulty, which has already been demonstrated! And although the "White Swan" has an impressive range and in the air it can hang out for up to 15 hours, but it is too expensive to operate, and the EPR has hoo!
          We need an aircraft that is more economical to operate, capable of patrolling in the air for a very long time, and which is difficult to detect!

        Forget about speed. the Americans abandoned peaceful space, although earlier satellites could track the heat trail of such large targets as the Tu-160. The fast and the furious even more. Over-the-horizon radars and modern computers are much faster than the Tu-160. It's just that even from the base in Iceland, the F-15 may not get the Tu-95 at the launch line, which already exceeds 5 thousand km. Therefore, supersonic is not needed. Then why NK-32? Maybe they plan to use the PAK DA as a polar interceptor for the OBD? It would be interesting.

        Well, everyone clung to this stealth. Above technically advanced areas, the stealth plane will glow like a Christmas tree. Because there are a lot of spurious radiation of all kinds and it is impossible to absorb / scatter them with the help of coating and geometry. And if all signs of civilization are suppressed, then stealth is useless. I'm not trying to say that mattresses are suckers, stealth is needed, as it increases the chances, but it is not a panacea.

And a fairly adequate solution has been proposed. Invisibility and strike with hypersonic missiles, rational and cheaper than supersonic missiles.

    And where did you see the teachings there ??? Or your own self-esteem rolls over and the opinion of others is like a sickle in a famous place for you ???

    Supersonic will allow PAK DA to quickly reach the line of attack, break away from enemy interceptors, and increase the range of cruise missiles.

    Faster to reach the line of attack - YES
    Break away from enemy interceptors - YES (possible)
    Increase the range of cruise missiles - definitely NO
    The own combat radius of an aircraft with a subsonic flight speed is much greater than with a supersonic one. Plus the constant range of the CD - in total it turns out less

    Well, everything is fine here plus!

    But you are a minus if you cannot understand the elementary thing that the range of action of Kr will decrease, rather than increase.

    Supersonic doesn't really make sense. That is why Lozino-Lozovsky after the MiG-31 led the Spiral project, then Buran.

    And this is what side to strategic bombers? What does this have to do with winged spaceships and strategic bombers ??

      The spiral and percussion functions could be performed

      in general, for good, a spaceship is needed and not strategists
      like the Americans have a Boeing that spent more than a year in orbit
      it is also cheaper to operate and there is no risk that the strategists' bases will be destroyed before they rise into the air

    PS Looks like they are getting the F-35 with a batch of the next brilliant "Raphael" .. Oh, Indians, all this will come back to haunt you ..

    It is a pity for the Indians not to see them Rafale, scandal after scandal The huge cost of French fighters for the Indian Air Force became known, the manufacturer offered India an option in which the purchased Rafale fighters could cost the Indian treasury less. The initial contract provides for the sale of 36 French fighters for the needs of the Indian Air Force. The total cost of this purchase for India will be 7,87 billion euros. Thus, the exact price of the Rafale fighter with weapons and services for India became known. It is 218,6 million euros! laughing Let me remind you that the Defense News publication, citing its sources, reported on the gloomy affairs of Hindustan Aeronautics, which received a license to produce 140 Su-30MKI fighters until 2020. According to the newspaper, production is too expensive - $ 70,3 million per unit, while a copy purchased in Russia costs only $ 42,15 million. Apparently, for each fighter, five carriages of cannon shells are included in the kit. And a couple more wagons of winter tires 

    I was more surprised that licensed production was much more expensive than a simple purchase from us. And this is not real production yet ... What will happen if they start producing aircraft from scratch at all ... laughing

      Is the list and quantity of the supplied weapons also known?
      Maintenance work volume?
      Maybe there are two dozen Meteors for each Rafal?
      And yes, it turned out that these fighters need, for example, other tankers, and that means millions and millions more.

    Having such an aircraft as the Tu-160, I don't understand why we need the PAK. The price of TU-160 is $ 250 million, and the price of the PAK is generally unknown. And he must replace the TU-95. According to the information that there is, the PAK is not much better than the TU-160. It would be better if they did more TU, and then they did PAK.

    Presumably, a ledge in the cockpit is required so that the pilot does not take off his hat.

    Place for the Shiva statuette on the torpedo.

    Elongated oxygen masks to fit the beard.

    What else are the options? laughing One friend after working with the Indians gave the following remark. "I worked with different customers, with the Chinese, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, meticulous Europeans, but Indians are simply not something with something. Everything that you agreed with them and fixed in the contract, you can immediately forget."

    So these are two different cars. And it doesn't make much sense to compare. First, we do not know the performance characteristics of the PAK YES, so it doesn't make much sense to say which is better and which is worse. Secondly, the subsonic has its undoubted advantages, in contrast to the supersonic

    So they will do TU. PAK DA is a product of the Tupolev Design Bureau. And "160" will still be produced only because the car is already used up (although it is not known that it will have to be rebuilt from scratch)

    Well, "suddenly" is unlikely ... But to have the "opportunity to be at the launch point" is another matter ... and if there is also "the opportunity to escape in time after the launch ..." - it's worth a lot! wink[/ quote] "suddenly" - I meant that the enemy's reaction time is not enough

    This is normal. Likewise, we have dozens of "experts" who express their opinions, sometimes having nothing to do with a particular topic. This is quite natural. Moreover, everyone has the right to speak. Incidentally, this expert from India did not say anything unusual. In fact, it makes no sense to create a new PAK DA in a supersonic version. One can argue about the aerodynamic design, but the fact that a subsonic bomber with high performance characteristics is being created to replace the TU-95 is clear to everyone. The reaction of VO writers to the statements of other people on this topic is surprising. Or the fact that he is a Hindu (American, Japanese, Chinese or someone else) imposes a ban on the ability to have an opinion ???

    The whole problem of creating a supersonic flying wing is in the unexplored state of transient flight modes!
    And given its roll, even more so no one will bother with supersonic.

    What's so surprising? This is the establishment of production. but it also costs money. when the circulation goes, the cost per unit will fall. this is the risk of production (leucine or partial), in contrast to a one-time purchase (even with consumables).

    In the modern Indian epic "Rafaliada" there was an extremely unexpected plot twist. Despite numerous unsuccessful experiments with attempts to produce "Arjun", "Tejas" and other military equipment, which proved the undocumented growth of Indian hands, these Himalayan Jews decided to make their own fighter. Not quite, of course, independently. Indian desires are only growing: now a foreign aircraft manufacturer, who will be given the high honor, will have to hand over almost all the documentation, set up production in India and provide modernization support in the future.

    Without being afraid to make a mistake, I will predict that in the coming years we will have some amazing and funny twists! laughing

    No private defense company in India has previously produced fighters, but many have already expressed interest in participating in the program, including Tata Advanced Systems, Adani Defense, Reliance Defense, Mahindra Defense and Bharat Forge Limited.

    Reliance Defense has formed a joint venture with the French company Dassault Aviation and currently manufactures components for the Rafale fighter jets. Tata Advanced Systems has teamed up with the American company Lockheed Martin, which produces the F-35. Adani Defense has announced a collaboration with the Swedish company Saab AB, which manufactures the Gripen fighter jet.

    An Indian Air Force spokesman said the proposal was sent to foreign companies in June 2018. Among those responding to the request are Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Dassault Aviation, Saab AB, Airbus Defense and Space, the Russian Aircraft Corporation and the Sukhoi company. So for the development of underdeveloped debaters and illiterate miners. laughing

    The senior official added that the request included a requirement for the transfer of technology, including the transfer of design, development, production and repair documentation, as well as a requirement for the ability to integrate weapons, systems, sensors and further modernization of the aircraft.

    Especially India wants to get stealth technology, active radar technology, avionics, electronic warfare systems and engines.

    “The advantage of manufacturing a fighter in India is that the customer can choose the types of sensors, electronic warfare equipment, avionics and weapons in accordance with the operational requirements. Subsequently, the customer receives full logistics and modernization support without any restrictions. However, it is important to integrate the majority of these systems into the very structure of the aircraft to ensure the compatibility of the systems, "the official added.

    The Indian Air Force plans to commission all 114 fighters within 12 years after the contract is signed.

    We stock up on seeds. laughing
