Polish Observer: If the Russians manage to convince the UAE to buy the Su-75 Checkmate fighter, it will be another blow to the US positions

59

The foreign press discusses the demonstration at an exhibition of weapons and military equipment in the United Arab Emirates of the promising Russian light fighter Su-75 The Checkmate. A mockup of this new generation aircraft is presented at Dubai Airshow 2021.


Western reporters are trying to answer the question of why Russia, having failed to order such a fighter from the Sukhoi company for its own Aerospace Forces, is promoting the aircraft at an international exhibition. This question is rather strange, because the developers do not hide the fact that they want to attract foreign investment in the project of a new generation aircraft. And such investments will come in the event that one or more foreign countries become interested in the Su-75 fighter as a prospect for their own air force.

Polish observer Juliusz Sabak writes that Russia "is trying to influence the UAE in a peculiar way, which wants to acquire American-made F-35 fighters." From Juliusz Sabak's material in the Polish press:

Moscow hopes that the UAE, due to certain problems with the purchase of American F-35s, can choose a different version of the fighter.

The Polish press notes that this option is offered by Russia. This is the Su-75 The Checkmate, which was brought as a model to Dubai.

Sabak:

Russia is trying to publicize as widely as possible the demonstration in the UAE of the layout of its nonexistent Su-75 fighter. The Russians hope that the authorities of the United Arab Emirates will decide to buy and actually finance the development and construction of this aircraft.

The author writes that difficulties for the UAE in acquiring fifty F-35s from the United States are related to Israel's position. The Israeli authorities sent a letter to the United States saying that "they would not want the monarchies of the Gulf to have a military advantage over Israel." That is why the Biden administration has so far hampered the implementation of the agreements that were previously reached with the UAE by the Trump administration.

But today the UAE is determined to restore political relations with Israel at all levels.

Polish columnist:

If the Russians do manage to convince the UAE to buy the Su-75 Checkmate, it will be another blow to the US image and position in the Middle East.

The Polish author notes that the United States itself is in a difficult situation when it is necessary not to quarrel with its allies and at the same time try to maintain the balance of power in an acceptable version for itself.

                  Russia at its own expense will be engaged in the production of a new fifth generation fighter Checkmate, said the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov. He clarified that foreign investors will be able to finance the creation of a double version fighter.

                  As the minister explained, Checkmate project "absolutely does not depend on foreign customers"... "We have the budget for this is completely laid out, both with the participation of the programs of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and off-budget funds of Rostec and the United Aircraft Corporation (United Aircraft Building Corporation), "Mr. Manturov told RIA Novosti on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum.

      Rather, Sukikh will be ditched and abandoned, like the same contract with the Saudis for many billions, where documents were even signed, and in the end it was used to break through the best nomenclature and prices from the United States.

      Also here. They leak data that the government is inclined to participate in the Sukhoi project, because it intends to get the 5th generation. Negotiations are underway, etc. And the Americans will approve the delivery of the F-35.

        1) Statistically significant only if the machines are not serviced at all. And then the Syrians are fighting on odnodvig Brezhnev times.
        2) But the amount of fuel is conventionally doubled, and this is not only weight, but also volume, which gives rise to additional weight and restrictions.

        At a certain stage, it is more profitable to beat the% of single-engine engines for technical reasons where the double engine would return and build new ones than to operate the two-engine engines. For the latter have a much more expensive flight hour, much more expensive maintenance of engines, etc. That on the cycle runs into a significant difference. Not without a reason, the world's best-selling aircraft by a giant margin is the F-16.

          This is all the commercial side of the issue. Those. a single-engine aircraft is better for non-war times. I certainly exaggerate your post.

          But there is a really very important plus for a single-engine aircraft: during a war period, its production can be increased much faster, thus quickly replenishing losses.

            In the military too. The Su-25 won has the maximum spaced apart engines, armored barriers, and in Syria it was shot down from a Chinese MANPADS or even an old Syrian-Soviet one (Igly and FN-6 appeared in the photo there). The survivability of MiG / Su in case of engine damage, even MANPADS will be even lower.

            Now we go further, if we are talking about a serious conflict, then the AIM-120 / Buku / Osa / Mika, which is enough warhead to disable the aircraft reliably. Yes - of course there will be cars of the level, miraculously held out. But suddenly, single-engine ones will have such.

            Production of course - but again, now the release cycle is very long, and wars are short, if we are not talking about a civilian.

              Everything can happen and a twin-engine is not a panacea. But its combat survivability is higher. You'd better "ask" Lieutenant-General Sergei Kobylash, the present commander of long-range aviation of the Russian Federation, and how he held out on his Su-25 during the five-day war on 08.08.2008. So, there are different cases.

              It feels like I've slept that way for the last twenty years. You can call it "war" or "conflict", but it doesn't change the essence. Let's remember the "short war" in Afghanistan, Iraq, the India-Pakistan conflict.

                Afghanistan does not require a large build-up.
                Iraq - Organized resistance collapsed very quickly in 91/03. Next is the occupation, partisans, militants. The losses of equipment were, of course, (especially on the ground), but not so much as to directly mobilize the production lines.

                Protracted when +/- equal rivals, again, you can take Iraq-Iran. Or separated every couple of months. The problem with regard to Russia is that equal opponents have the means of a global strike and the industry will be burned out in the first month both from the enemies and in the Russian Federation. There are no special options. sad

                India-Pakistan - The last war ended with India's victory in 2 weeks. Again, it makes no sense to bring conflicts like the recent one between the countries, when the MiG-21 was shot down. This is not a war, but an incident. As well as the mahach from the other side.


                This is, so to speak, a harsh OFP in conditions close to combat, but not a war.

          From "it itself" saves how correctly you indicated the service, if not so modernization / replacement of engines.

        Naturally, it was from there that everyone learned about him :) I actually wrote about this ... Who knew about him before the exhibition before the exhibition?

          Who knew about him before the deliberate leak before the exhibition?

          You talk like it was created in metal and made flights

          It is not the most difficult task to discreetly glue the cardboard layout, in preparation for the exhibition.

            Look at how other countries present their concepts and you will see that what Russia presented in terms of its elaboration is an order of magnitude closer to the finished aircraft than what others present at the presentations, here is a living example, for example, in the west they present their concepts:


            So do not la-la ... this craft did not stand next to Chess ..

              The project consisted of a layout, there was nothing to hide

              The level of elaboration of all flightless models is the same. Here is an even better developed plane, tomorrow it will go into series laughing

              In comparison, the Dassault concept looks more realistic, even without the chassis and cockpit photos. At least the French have money and experience

                Comparing Russia and Iran is certainly strong :)))) Needless to say ...

                  You judge the degree of elaboration by the quality of the layout at the exhibition

                  In this case, the Iranians have the most elaborate one. Even the equipment of the cockpit was shown. And the most secret, before the exhibition, the almost finished Iranian fighter was not known

    1. Developed countries will not use Russian fighters.
    2. Developing countries buy only approved aircraft, technology is not the main thing.

    The fundraising scheme has repeatedly worked in the missile field: Pantsir, Yakhont, S-350.

    So there is no fighter. Layout only.
