New testers aircraft T-50

45
A few days ago during the work on the Perspective aviation the Frontline Aviation Complex (PAK FA), a significant event took place that clearly shows the current progress. First time in stories The prototype T-50 aircraft was lifted into the air not by a Sukhoi test pilot or an employee of the Flight Research Institute, but by a military test officer at the State Flight Test Center.




According to the official report of the company "Sukhoi", 25 April from the airport of the Flight Research Institute. M.M. Gromov (Zhukovsky) for the first time took off the prototype of the fifth-generation fighter T-50, in the cockpit of which was a military test pilot of the 929-th State Flight Test Center. V.P. Chkalov (GLITS). The two-hour flight, during which various systems were once again tested, was successful, in full accordance with the assignment. According to official data, four T-50 prototypes are currently taking part in flight tests at once, and two more airframes are used in ground work. One of them serves as a stand for testing equipment, the other is involved in static testing.

To date, four available prototype aircraft have made a total of about two hundred flights. However, it is the recent flight that is currently of the greatest interest. The first departure of a promising aircraft under the control of a pilot from the State Flight Test Center actually indicates the imminent start of a new test phase. From the very fact of the beginning of participation in the work of military test pilots, it follows that in the very near future the PAK FA program will move to the stage of state joint tests, during which the fate of the new aircraft will be finally decided. Admittedly, new trials will begin with some delay relative to the original plans. So, at the end of last year, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force, Colonel-General V. Bondarev announced the beginning of state tests in March 2013. March is over, April has passed, and the tests have not yet begun.

However, the last news allow to assume that all the necessary work will begin no later than the month of June. The situation in the current state looks as if the project had some problems, the solution of which took additional time. Now they have been eliminated, and military testers can be involved in test flights of a promising fifth generation fighter. In addition, it should be noted that in the near future the fleet of experienced aircraft will be replenished with one more side. The fifth flight copy, according to available data, will have a full set of on-board equipment corresponding to the composition of the equipment of future serial fighters.

In the future it is possible to build several more aircraft, the configuration of which will correspond to the serial one. According to various sources, in flight tests up to seven or eight fighters can be employed. In this case, the planned test volume of several hundred flights can be completed within a matter of months. The main problem in this case becomes the timely processing of the collected information and the introduction of corrective amendments to certain nuances of the project.

In the current plans of the Ministry of Defense, which can be adjusted in the future, the delivery of the first production T-50 aircraft is scheduled for 2015 year. By this time, it is planned to complete the tests, as well as complete the creation and fine-tuning of various onboard systems. The first serial fighters, as well as older models, will go to the Lipetsk 4 th center for combat use and retraining of flight personnel. Pilots of this organization will be the first to master the new aircraft, and then begin to transfer the experience to the pilots of other units, who will later receive serial T-50. It is too early to talk about the timing of the start and completion of deliveries of new fighters in parts not related to the Lipetsk center.

It is already clear that the mass construction of fifth-generation Russian fighters will begin only in the second half of this decade, and full-fledged combat-ready squadrons equipped with T-50 will appear only by 2020 year. Until that time, the air force will operate the existing aircraft, as well as the currently purchased Su-35C and Su-30CM. These types will be transitional in anticipation of the fifth-generation fighter.

Also, by the end of the decade, an experienced copy of the export version of the T-50, currently bearing the designation FGFA (Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft - “Fifth Generation Fighter”) should appear. The development of this project is carried out jointly with the Indian company Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. India will be the first foreign buyer of these aircraft. In the future, it is planned to offer FGFA to third countries. On the prospects of the export fighter, for obvious reasons, it is too early to say.

Over the next few years, the main topic of discussion will remain the T-50 fighter for the Russian air force. It’s still far from the beginning of his service, but participation in testing of pilots of the State Flight Test Center speaks about the progress achieved. It remains to wait for new messages and follow the progress of the project.

      On hardly see, somewhere I heard that the pilots of the F-22 abandoned the conditional air battle with the Su-37. Americans are very protective of the morale of their pilots.

        Su-37-super-maneuverable fighter, designed to gain air supremacy and attack land targets.

        F-22 is currently the only fifth-generation aircraft and the most expensive fighter currently in service in the world.
        The Pentagon recognized the superiority of Russian fighters

        The US military shocked Moscow with its confessions, replicated by the media, that Russian-made airplanes are much better than those made in the USA. What is the reason for such flattering confessions for Moscow?

        It all began with the publication in USA Today of an interview with American General Hal Homburg. He spoke about the successes of the Indian Air Force, which had achieved a resounding success in air combat training against American F-15C / D "Eagle" aircraft. The Indians "fought" on Russian-made Su-30MKI multi-purpose fighters and won almost 90% of all air battles.
        “We are not so much ahead of the rest of the world, as we would like to think,” the newspaper quoted the words of the general in charge of the Air Combat Command service of the US Air Force. Airplanes have become a truly "sobering shower" for many Air Force officials. "

        Then about the "Russian victory" told the US Air Force bulletin "Inside Air Force". He cited even more shocking data for Americans. It turned out that not only Su-15MKI, but also MiG-30, MiG-27 and even "old" MiG-29 "Bison", who also showed themselves beyond all praise, fought against the F-21C / D "Eagle". They won not only the American Orlov, but also the French Mirage-2000. The American website Washington ProFile called the success of Russian cars a “complete surprise” for American pilots.
        Americans are well aware of these fighting qualities of Russian combat vehicles. They even bought from Moldova when, like other former republics of the USSR, it became an independent squadron MiG-29K, which was stationed at a military airfield near Chisinau. They repaired them with the help of German specialists, who received the MiG-29 from the GDR army, and now use their pilots for training, teach them to fight and win "Russian fighters", which are more than seven thousand "pieces" in different countries of the world. Only in India, according to the British The Military Balance, over five hundred. And there is nothing surprising that Indian pilots, despite the intensive training of American pilots, are still fairly easy for them to win in air battles. Unique military equipment, multiplied by the skill of the pilots, does its job.

        But on the other hand, and this is also noted by experts in a conversation with reporters, American pilots have not encountered a serious enemy in real air battles. Not to be considered as such battles of the late nineties over the Balkans, where the US Air Force took not so much quality as a massive quantity. The same can be said about the first and second Iraqi campaigns, where the air confrontation simply did not exist, as such. Where to gain combat experience? Only in training battles.

        «Fighting "with Russian pilots does not allow a long-standing army psychology, - suddenly they lose again, then try to prove to the pilot that he can and must necessarily defeat the" former probable enemy. " There is no such problem with the Indians. Well, they lost and lost, which means they trained poorly.

        But why should the Americans blow their own blunders to the whole world? This is not accepted in the military environment. Neither they nor, by the way, we have.

        The explanation of such frankness of the American generals is easy enough to find if you remember why they suddenly started talking about the events of February in June. Just at this time in the US Congress discusses the provision for defense for the next fiscal year.

          That's right. All of the above directly cries out that a public relations campaign was held to knock out money for the US Air Force.
          It’s good that the T-50 program is moving. All success in its implementation.

          Only he who does not go anywhere does not fall.
          Only he who does nothing is not mistaken.

          Are these sayings unknown overseas? There is such a possibility, yes. But there is another possibility. What they know is this:

          "War is a way of deception. Therefore, if you can do anything, show the enemy that you cannot; if you use something, show him that you are not using it; even if you are close, show, as if you are far away; even if you were far away, show that you are close; lure him with profit; get him upset and take him; if he is full, be prepared; if he is strong, evade him; provoking anger in him bring him into a state of frustration; having taken a humble appearance, arouse self-conceit in him; if his strength is fresh, tire him; if he is friendly, disconnect; attack him when he’s not ready; speak when he’s not expecting. " © Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

          Takshto rolls should not be relaxed, guys. Oh, not worth it.

    Great news, more and more often heard about PAK FA, Americans bite their elbows, with his f35. The former POWER of the USSR is gradually being revived, little by little but surely we are stepping forward, plus a new submarine, the Navy is building new ships, these things must be launched into serial production and Amer will choke on their own saliva. Everyone should be happy for their homeland, that he lives in Russia, that USSR Day 2 will come!

    By the end of the decade, a prototype of the export version of the T-50 should appear

    It’s not horseradish to sell our wealth and beauty, happiness is not in money, but in the defense ability of our state, it is necessary to sell TU-104, AN-2, MI-1. This "swallow" is needed by yourself!

    Not certainly in that way. Export is more profitable for enterprises due to a higher rate of return. Perhaps some small part of the profit goes to research and development, but not to the construction of new aircraft.
    In the period when there were no state orders, yes, export was necessary to survive simply.
    But when there is solvent I consider the demand for equipment for the needs of the Russian defense, in this case to occupy production capacities with export orders, inexpedient.
    Such a decision, for example, was taken on C400 - until we secure ourselves for export, do not supply!

    T-50, Handsome! Well, I really like it! But I don’t like F22. And the thing is not that the Raptor is their plane, it’s purely intuitive. There is some inexplicable absurdity in the raptor. I can’t explain. One of our aircraft designers said , Tupolev, if I am unmistakable, a good plane should be beautiful. For example, our F15 MiG25, F16 and MiG29 are beautiful airplanes. I like it. Sukhov fighters are, aaahhh vaasche !!!, poems in metal. F117 freak. Here and in the raptor, with all that rational design, perfection that is repulsive. It causes a slight inexplicable disgust.

      I fully agree with you on the part of PAK FA, the only thing is that the F-15s are always paired with the Su-27 family, regarding this very thing, as you say the absurdity of the 22nd, they generally have very few “things” with an attractive design, wild rationalists with On the one hand, and on the other, they believe that almost everything can be calculated on a “typewriter” - it’s most likely from savings, and their education is the same ........
      In general, no matter what they say, ours, at least as a glider, always looks better, and more often they are higher in terms of performance, our only frequent drawback is equipment, and for those who claim to be the first, and what’s the first to start, the main thing is who’s the first at the finish line will be "!!!

    I agree, and it is even more important to equip the car with modern avionics. The fact that the glider was excellent done, I never doubt. We can do it. It’s more complicated with the engine, and there have always been difficulties with avionics. In any case, it is nice to see new domestic weapons and military equipment.
