NGAD Program: US Air Force General Confirms 6th Generation Fighter Prototype Has Been Taking Off

127

In the United States, some details are published in relation to the data on why the Air Force command plans to abandon the operation of F-2030 fighters by the beginning of 22. Earlier, Voennoye Obozreniye reported on such plans of the US Air Force, which noted that in the end the choice would be made in favor of the implementation of the NGAD - Next Generation Air Dominance program. Now the representatives of the American command have, in some way, concretized what concerns this program.


Lt. Gen. Clinton Hinough, who is the US Air Force's deputy chief of strategy for strategy, said the focus of the phasing out of F-22 fighters would be on a 6th generation fighter program. This program is the indicated NGAD. The program, as noted, involves the introduction of new principles of air combat.

The American general, who previously piloted the F-16 and F-117 aircraft, could not say exactly when such a program would be implemented in the United States. At the same time, he said that the demonstration platform created within the framework of NGAD had already taken off. Data on test flights of the 6th generation fighter prototype in the United States were also published in September 2020. General Hinough confirms those publications.

Clinton Hinough:

Yes, we are designing a new platform. There will be a difference in the software system, implemented complex sensor technologies.

The new program, as noted, provides for a modular design and the possibility of using it in an unmanned version, as well as when interacting with a UAV. An example is the American drone Valkyrie.

General Hinough:

We are studying the most optimal options for NGAD. So far, both manned and unmanned versions are being considered.

In addition, it is noted that the most important difference between the 6th generation fighter will be the presence of an artificial intelligence system, which could itself choose the optimal options not only for piloting, but also for conducting air combat.

          Next Generation Air Dominance is the next generation of air dominance.
          They have not done anything yet, but have already defeated everyone.
          The latest generation of US aircraft, the F-117 is a dead end, the F-22 is a dead end, the F-35 is a dead end, now a new dead end invention, but it only makes us better.

            More habitual "air supremacy". Actually, it's time for them to make a new plane. The F-35 went into production. The F-22, whatever one may say, from the idea to the end of operation will be 40 years old. Moreover, they trampled the way for everyone, there is no one to spy on. Since they did not begin to modernize, something did not suit them. Either in idea or in execution.
            We would have to think about it - we are starting to rivet the Su-57 series, and for some reason they write off the exact same machine. Not the point, the gap turns out to be too big. I used to be in "half a car", 4 - 5 years. They (we) have a series, we (they) take off an experienced one.
            And leave the "generations" with "requirements" for something to the magazines. Let them indulge.

              We begin to rivet the Su-57 series, and for some reason they write off exactly the same car.

              Not exactly the same. Our fighters have a different concept, not only super-visibility and long-range combat. I remember a very old reportage, when, in my opinion, the first only prototype of the Su-57 took off. Then the designer let slip that we are already working out the 6th generation fighter, and the Su-57 is a test of these technologies. So it might be a transitional fighter with drone drone and unmanned aerial vehicle already built into it. You also need to see what the Americans are up to, while their new-generation concepts are blurred and offer nothing new.

                That's just it. Only they have experience of operation, exercises and combat use of "stealth". Surely there were "rakes" on which they had to step. Once they started something new, deciding to "trample" on the F-15 without upgrading the F-22, then the rake is big. Without illusions - the glider and drying engines are one to one, I don't believe in advancing jerks in electronics. We are starting to make a car, and they wrote off exactly the same one.

                  First of all, don't forget about export. The Su-57 was designed for the Indian market in particular, etc. Secondly, for special operations, we must have a small series of such machines. Of course, the Su-57 will occupy only a narrow cluster, and the basis for gaining dominance will be behind the Su-35. The cluster of front-line bombers will be behind the Su-34. (The West has abandoned the division of a fighter and a front-line soldier in the direction of universality. In fact, a mediocre fighter and a mediocre front-line soldier, even worse an attack aircraft). The difference between the approaches of the Russian Federation and the West. They rely on stealth, make it the main ..., and we continue to rely on flight performance characteristics, missile and radar range of our main, mass aircraft. I repeat, a small series of Su-57 is only for special operations and in anticipation of export. But the MiG-35 continues to control the stratosphere, although some will become missile carriers. Therefore, for us, the 6th generation will be different, i.e. the stratosphere, and maybe higher, and not artificial intelligence. AI is another dead end parasha. The "rake" has already knocked them over, so the F-35 is already a compromise plane, a kind of average, average lousy in everything, including stealth. The problem is in the development of Russian ZGRLS, meter radars and long-range missiles capable of extinguishing AWACS aircraft, which are the eyes of stealth. For the invisible, he himself does not see anything, but the blind man receives information from the AWACS aircraft. And besides the destruction of the AWACS aircraft by missiles and air-to-air missiles (ala KS-172), it still does not allow receiving electronic warfare information. F-35 or F-22 forced to include their radars and confusion? Over the territory of the active air defense of the enemy and with fighters completely superior in performance characteristics. This hole is a violation of the electronic warfare communication, they want to close the AI, but to the point. This AI, Skynet, will also have to turn on AFAR, but how else?

            The latest generation of US aircraft F-117 - dead end, F-22 - dead end, F-35 - dead end

            SR-71 - dead end, XB-70 Valkyrie - dead end, B-1A - dead end. The shuttle is a dead end. This was the time when there was a race for speed and height. Our engineers knocked them out of there. MiG25 / 31 they were kicked out of there. Therefore, Tu-160, Tu22M3, etc. settled there, and the Americans clung to the ground and smeared themselves with stealth feces, the bastards disguised themselves. But it touched the same MiG-31 on PFAR Zaslon, to look out for chickens from above like an eagle, as well as ZGRLS, their concept of a low-altitude breakthrough with invisible hats was again made rotten. The only thing I don't quite agree with is that the F-35 is a dead end. This plane is a compromise, with the preservation of locksmith hysteria, but still with a claim to versatility. Such a fairly strong middling. The budget is raised, of course, but nevertheless.

              So they knocked us out. "Sotka" is a dead end. "Buran" is a dead end. But then they walked side by side. And in dead ends and in competent decisions. The MiG-31 is an unnecessary moment-25. Not quite a suitable replacement for the Tu-128. Tu-22 is a long-range bomber, the Americans did not need this class. Not in Europe, not at sea. They did not build it until China had a decent navy. Now they are doing B-22.
              Tu-160 - yes, the dog knows him in the current conditions, we are not doing it from a good life, there is no other and will not soon be.

                Not really. We refused on time ourselves. At the prototype stage. The indicators were also recorded for fun. They followed the path of the Valkyrie and Shuttle disasters. Smart people learn from other people's mistakes, they learn from theirs.

                Here we have a modernization and it is in a perfect airborne radar, the first phased array in history. Those. his unique stratospheric abilities were used, he became a kind of AWACS aircraft with the most distant air-to-air missiles. Looking out for a target from a great height. Those. even though high-altitude and high-speed targets escaped from the MiG-25 into oblivion, and the rest clung to the ground, but it did not go into oblivion, but went to develop into the MiG-31. Which also evolves into the MiG-31BM and the strategic missile carrier MiG-31K. And MiG-41 will be our 6th generation. A dead end, when itself is scrapped and there are no descendants on its basis, but here it is development and evolution. Tu-160 is unsurpassed and why change the best. The missiles he carries are evolving. He himself does not climb into the air defense zone and can deliver the maximum weight and faster than any analogue. The USA had long-range vehicles, it was an F-111, it did not lie around with the Tu-22, but it was not bad. He became a victim of stealth hysteria, he also could not get away from the MiG-31. Those. the same victim of our interceptors and air defense. Stealth is not from a good life, but from despair. Imagine destroying the technology of very advanced aircraft on the verge of fiction and engaging in this topic for decades, making mediocre aircraft in the hope of invisibility in a narrow track of the detection spectrum. This is a tragedy for the American aircraft industry and the entire West. When Britain simply curtailed the production of bombers altogether, but only makes light fighters and even then together with other Europeans. And of course the Pentagon is not, therefore, they are not going to abandon the F-15.

            Whether it is a dead end or not, we will find out ONLY after these planes enter the battle, and not with bearded men in dressing gowns and with a set of AK / RPGs, it will be possible to guess what and how. So far, NONE of the Israeli F-35s have been shot down during the attacks on Syria. So it's too early to declare them a dead end. That's when the F35 / F22 will meet with Chinese fighters in the air, and in real combat conditions, then we will be able to say something. So far, this is all about using agricultural tools on the water surface. Dead end, not dead end, penguin, alligator. There are no real facts. In the exercise, it is not clear whether the Americans are flying with dipole reflectors or not. And I work showing all 100% of the capabilities of my aircraft, or not, hoping that their aviation will be underestimated.

And back to the extermination of sparrows, there will be no talk of any rovers either.

              The USSR, of course, came out, but this does not mean that everything was finally over without the slightest hint of such things. So purely for reference, the USSR sent stations to Mars, of course, purchasing grain from the United States. And modern Russia does not send rovers, but does not buy grain from the United States.

    And what, not even cartoons? Alarming news. Where is our light fighter? I doubt the need for a heavy MiG-31 to replace it. Su-57 will be able to replace it, - cruising supersonic, much longer range, V-V BD missiles, AFAR with a range of up to 450 km. Adapted to bad airfields, takeoff run 600m. Excellent!

You give them facts, they give you all sorts of nonsense from journalists.

And in a real conflict, bragging = underestimation of the enemy and loss. Until 41, they also wanted to beat the enemy on his own territory.

          The relevance of OVT in the late years has greatly decreased with the advent of missiles with a full-spherical launch with a high overload capacity, like Python5, for example, and with the advent of a full-spherical vision system on aircraft.
          Now it is no longer necessary to "twist" the enemy, trying to direct the nose of his plane at him, it is enough just to see him.
          And the appearance of missiles with an overload of 50 gi does not make it possible to disrupt the guidance by maneuver, since the overload capacity of the aircraft is actually a maximum of 7-8 gi, even with an OVT, even without it, neither the pilot nor the car can really withstand anymore, and the missile with an overload in 50 gi is almost impossible to shake off with the help of 7-8, well, let 9 gi for special pilots, except perhaps under some happy coincidence

                I read somewhere that this year or next year they are integrating air defense systems into the general ace, including over-the-horizon, and aircraft, first the Su-57. Although they already have radars of the decimeter range in the wings for stealths. The layout with internal compartments for arming already implies stealth, since it reduces the EPR, there was infa about 0,4m for the Su-57 and 0,2-0,3m for the penguin in the front projection

                    At the angles that these cigars of engines will begin to reflect, the EPR stealth will no longer be much different from all other aircraft, in normal modes it simply turns the side with a radio-absorbing coating. In addition to the internal compartments, the geometry of the airframe, which excludes right angles, the edges of the bearing surfaces, the use of materials scattering radiation, in principle, all current "stealth" have approximately the same EPR in the front projection, this is the main thing.
                    Moreover, long-wave decimeter and meter radars normally see them in any case and will give target designation to all means of destruction, ground and air. I think if by the 6th generation they start to install rofars, then the concept of "stealth" will completely exhaust itself

                        They will give target designation, just for this, all ground, air and space systems and means of reconnaissance and destruction are integrated into a single information space, so that any carrier has the opportunity to shoot with a multi-mode rocket, from which the stealth cannot escape, only try to shoot down himself. And from this moment on, stealth will not play any role, at least against such an opponent.

                      these are all crutches from the lack of stealth technologies and the experience of creating stealth aircraft in the Russian Federation.
                      conscientious technologies of the 70s, slightly rethought
                      and the gap is only growing
                      in the states for the 6th generation
                      J-20 is more stealth than su57
                      J-20B already with a Chinese engine
                      lag and degradation not only in stealth coatings, but also in the element base.
                      and dreams about rofars are ridiculous.
                      considering that we have 1 (ONE) frontline AFAR for ALL of Russia

                        Stealth is far from being a universal lifesaver, and as for me, the further, the less prospects it has, as a marketing trick, it justifies itself perfectly, but the Americans avoid confronting their stealth with the S-400. Therefore, it is not so important who has 0,1 less epr. As for the element base, 100% agree, we need to catch up, since they don’t regret the money now, the main thing is to spend it wisely.
                        As beep lights on 4+ Sushki, in some characteristics at that time they were better than afars, in terms of range, the number of detected and tracked targets, now they are inferior to new ones in terms of multimodality and noise immunity, therefore there is something for 5 afars and for the MiG-35 there seems to be something. Here they have a type 6 generation flies, and what advantages it has over 5 they themselves do not know, integration into a single information field, AI, interaction with UAVs and 5 do

                        stealth will be the 6th generation!
                        technologies are only getting better. Russia is at the beginning of the journey with its su57 4 ++
                        EPR for f35 is an ORDER lower than for su57. By any calculation, except urapatriotic
                        confronting their stealth with the S-400, the Americans avoid

                        and rightly so
                        shining the signatures of their newest exterminators is stupid
                        they therefore fly with corner reflectors where they can get into the enemy's radar zone.

                        Where did you get infa about the EPR Su-57, for comparison, to talk as much about the orders in the difference? And in advertising brochures, Lockheed will write 0,00001m and will not blink an eye. For some reason, the Turks refused to sell the F-35 after they acquired the S-400. The Americans themselves, meanwhile, are modifying and ordering new f-15s, without stealth. Of course, you can call the Su-57 at least a 4th generation, but at the same time talk about an overweight penguin as about 5 and something there is 6, I don't understand, although the F-22 is old, without ols and infrared cameras, it also had cruising sound on the best engines of that time, and thrust-to-weight ratio and maneuverability. It's good at least everyone stopped writing about a flat nozzle, as an example to follow, after the F-35 was made with a round

What kind of 6th generation are we talking about, if the criteria of the 6th generation have not yet been worked out. So it's just PR and nothing more. But the fact that the development of new technology is a fact. Yes, they all go, only on the sly.

          According to the current strategy, 4 F-15EX / 16 / 35A / NGAD fighters will remain in the USAF. In the 30s, the F-15C / D, F-15E, F-22 and A-10 will be decommissioned. It is also planned to replace the F-16 "with something else." I think it will be a jet, relatively cheap UAV fighter or a deep modernization of the F-16.

      The first flight of the F-22 was in 1997. Development of the 80s,
      when there was still no Internet, and no network connections.
      The computer on the F-22 is very ancient, it is impossible to replace the software - tough architecture,
      hard firmware.
      Will last until 2030 and write off.
      Avionics are now updated every 10-15 years, approximately.
      Therefore, they make airplanes with an open architecture. Software, devices and weapons

    You are overly trusting of American informants, and in fact they do not even hide the fact that their task is advertising in order to promote their products to the world market. Where have you seen the ad without exaggeration? They always overestimate the characteristics of their technology, business, nothing personal.
    And in essence, there is no point in counting the plus signs in the designation (felts 4 ++, or 5--). The result is important.
    For example, F-35,
    - as a fighter, not even able to catch up with the Su-34 (front-line bomber) (I hope you understand that before launching missiles, you need to approach the target at the required distance, because no one guarantees you that the target will fly directly at you) , it cannot escape any of our even heavily outdated fighters (and after all, situations when it is necessary to evade a battle, for example, due to the overwhelming superiority of the enemy, are not uncommon in a war), i.e. this machine cannot perform functions in a war a fighter (at least against us), since it will incur heavy losses in this role and will not fulfill its missions to destroy bombers;
    - as an attack aircraft, it makes no sense at all, because the principle of the placement of weapons does not allow the use of these weapons at close range, and the absence of armor protection and a single engine guarantee low survivability in conditions of air defense, i.e. large losses;
    - as a front-line bomber, it has a too small volume of weapons bays (and external suspensions are not provided on it), therefore, a very limited range of ammunition that can make the most of its carrying capacity, and, therefore, a limited range of tasks, or low efficiency, like a bomber. In addition, acting in the front line, he will be irradiated from all directions, and even with powerful radar signals (after all, at close range), that is, his invisibility will not affect here in any way. Again big losses, again unusability.
    Well, why do we need such a plane?
