The British Prime Minister confirmed information about plans to create, together with Italy and Japan, the latest Tempest fighter

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced London's plans to create, together with Italy and Japan, the latest Tempest combat fighter with artificial intelligence, which is said to be a 6th generation aircraft. This is reported by the Air Force, focusing on an interesting nuance of this project - it will become one of the largest developments of the West (and Japan) in the military sphere without the involvement of the United States.


Thus, the information about the development of the fighter, repeatedly discussed in the Western press, is true. London is going to build such an air machine, also using the possibilities of Italian and Japanese industry and their financing. Earlier it was reported that such industrial giants as BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Leonardo and MBDA will take part in the project.

It is also known that both the British and Italian military budgets have already planned multimillion-dollar spending to start work on creating the latest fighter. If the project is successful, it will demonstrate the ability of other Western countries to operate without the involvement of the United States and its technology and manufacturing capacity.

According to Sunak, the fighter is planned to be developed in the coming years. It will enter service with the Air Force of Great Britain, Italy and Japan in the mid-2030s. According to the plans of the British leadership, the latest fighter will be able to replace aviation United Kingdom Typhoon jet fighters currently used by the Royal Air Force.

Particular attention in the development is given to artificial intelligence. He must help the pilot in controlling the aircraft if he is in a state of severe stress or experiencing severe g-forces. But, interestingly, the plane will be able to fly without the participation of a pilot. It is also planned that the fighter will be able to launch hypersonic missiles.

    Well, well ... let's look at it in 10 years.

      Well, well ... let's look at it in 10 years.

      Well, well ... The United States has been finishing JSF since 1992, in fact, to this day they haven’t finished it, and only after 20 years something appeared that at least it wasn’t quite a layout, but an experimental batch, compare the budget of the F-35 - by who plowed ALL NATO together, and these three cripples ... In 10 years they will only understand that "Well, I couldn't, I couldn't." The three of them - there simply aren’t enough resources for the entire program, EVEN (!!!) the United States alone did not pull out the F-35, in a more or less combat-ready state, only Israeli versions with their filling. And these three simply won’t be able to, in terms of the production base and in terms of money - it’s not even Airbus to rivet, and here it is to rivet from scratch, all three of them don’t even have a military aviation industry

        Moreover, for the United States, the European competitor F35 is not needed at all.

    Yes, there was already one Hawker Tempest - a 1942 low-altitude fighter of the year, a so-so aircraft, little outstanding, but more outstanding Typhoon, Hurricane fighters were created on its basis

    But this is already serious. As I understand it, we need cooperation with China to create our 6th generation, because without Chinese electronics and AI systems, we can only roll out a glider

      Cooperation: England has Rolls-Royce engines, weapons, the Italians have Leonardo avionics: radars, optics. The Japanese will make a neat glider
      and mech.electro systems.

        I think the Italian "tuning studios" will give them a head start... among the Italians, the sense of beauty is higher than the contemplation of the flowering of sakrura.

      Yes, they are developing "NGF" ("Next Generation Fighter") with the Spaniards.

          There is already a queue for the F-35 until the beginning of the 30s, so they won’t offer it, they’ve already sold it. In addition, the United States does not invite anyone to its NGAD programs and is not going to share technologies.

            In total, NATO has 3 devices of the 6th generation, something else the Turks are doing there, but I think it will be Max 4 ++. However recourse

              It's long overdue. The fifth generation is already over 30 years old. The Europeans decided to let him through, due to the absence of threats.

            The French have their own aircraft of the latest generation (I write in such a way so as not to produce a journalistic and amateurish term - 5th generation) - "Rafale" is a competitor to the F-35., which is superior to it
            Now there will be a joint NGF (New Generation Fighter) with Germany and Spain and small drones for it, which together are part of the FCAS (The Future Combat Air System) program, the aircraft will have a deck version for the new aircraft carrier (PA-NG), as well as " Rafal".

    Taking into account the fact that all three countries have not developed anything of the kind over the past thirty years, it looks very enticing))) we are stocking up on popcorn and Pepsi-Cola.

      The Mitsubishi X-2 Shinshin is a fifth-generation Japanese light fighter aircraft with stealth technology. The aircraft was built using stealth technology and uses composite materials. It was not originally planned for production, and after building a prototype, the Japanese moved on to designing a 6th generation fighter, having purchased the F-35. It was originally planned to create it in cooperation with the Americans, but they wanted to get access to Japanese technologies, but refused to transfer their own. After that, the Japanese decided to cooperate with the Europeans, but refused to cooperate with the Americans.

      The problem is that the British motor is now the 4th generation. Creating a 6th generation engine will take time and a lot of money.

          Judging by the "hole" of more than 50 lard, in the British budget, it is quite problematic. R&D will require tens of lard.

    These are only "plans being announced", they have not even begun to be developed yet. The Americans, most likely, will not let them do anything of their own.

    You can't make a 6th generation aircraft without creating a 5th one. You can’t jump over, it’s like a push-button mobile phone was between an ordinary phone and a smartphone, 15-20 years old. So what will the 5th generation do, well, or 5+. Probably an expensive car will turn out, hardly more than 3 pieces for 300 countries. order. I think 200 million per piece. will be. The mid-30s is real, but the first batches will be small. In general, it’s strange, all 3 countries are participants in the F35 program, what else do they need ?! 5th generation aircraft, not very expensive, there is cooperation.
    Wealth rages.

      All these countries and companies are involved in the production of the F-35. Produced by Eurofighter and Rafal, these fighters differ from the 5th generation only in a large EPR, everything else is in no way inferior. Accordingly, there is no problem to jump a generation. The presence of the F-35 does not interfere with the production of air superiority complexes.

        The dependence on the manufacturer F35, which needs to sell aircraft to someone, interferes. There, they want to somehow, and the airbus will be closed and they will fly on Boeings. So there is no doubt about the technical capabilities

    Usually, Japanese developments look like this - they develop a miracle machine, shake hands at presentations, buy American weapons, that's all.

    We should also prepare a new car for the mid-30s, but normally, with a competition of different design bureaus, and two types at once, light and heavy. Otherwise, we will lag behind, and in the air the lag of death is like. New cars are now being prepared by China, Europe, the USA and this Tempest from England.
