Russia is close to completing the creation of a competitor F-22

Russia is close to completing the creation of a competitor F-22The new Russian fighter of the fifth generation PAK FA, also known as the T-50, is on a par with the American competitor F-22, in some areas even surpasses it, reports Russia Beyond The Headlines on July 7.


According to Mikhail Pogosyan, Director General of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), five cars are currently involved in testing, which allowed Russian designers to speed up the process of adopting the aircraft and reduce the gap with the United States.

For a long time, the F-22 is in service with the US Air Force and is considered one of the most advanced fighters in the world. Much less is known about his Russian rival T-50.

In terms of constructive solutions, the T-50 is the embodiment of the newest technologies of the Russian aircraft industry. This machine implements advanced technologies in the field of stealth, structural materials, artificial intelligence and electronic components, which brought the Russian military aviation industry to a new technological level.

New composite materials based on carbon polymers occupy 70% of the airframe area, due to which the empty mass of the aircraft is reduced by 20-25% compared to fighters made of traditional materials. Composites weigh by 50% less than titanium and aluminum alloys with comparable strength and stiffness. This factor allows designers to increase the mass of the combat load. The Sukhoi Design Bureau also emphasizes the "unprecedented low visibility of the PAK FA in the radar, optical and infrared spectra." T-50 has an effective reflective surface (EOC) within 5,3 sq. ft (its predecessor Su-30MKI has an image intensifier equal to 215 sq. ft.). This means that T-50 is less noticeable in 40 than Su-30MKI (Indian media reported that E-T-50 is 0,5 sq. Vs. 20 sq. M for Su-30MKI - note “VP”) It also has an impressive super-maneuverability, which is the hallmark of the fourth generation of Sukhoi fighters.

In addition, the T-50 also meets another requirement for modern fighters - a high level of board intellectualization. A radar with an active phased array (AFAR) is able to "see" everything that happens hundreds of miles away from an airplane. The radar can track several air and surface targets at the same time, keeping them on the crosshair of the sight. Several dozens of sensors are placed in different parts of the airframe, allowing not only to effectively use weaponbut also share information in real time. The "electronic pilot" function constantly analyzes information, providing the pilot with several options for action, which gives the pilot an opportunity to focus on the performance of the combat mission. Most of the data the pilot receives in the form of symbols and characters.

The T-50 can take off and land on runways the entire length of 1100 feet (according to Russian media reports, this figure is 300-400 m - approx. "VP"). In accordance with the canons of the stealth fighter has internal compartments for weapons. According to some data, these compartments can accommodate air-to-air class X-NUMX R-8 XR or two guided bombs of 77 pounds caliber (probably KNB-3300 caliber 1500-kg) . In addition, on external hangers, the aircraft can carry two ultra-long-range air combat missiles to hit targets at a distance of up to 1500 km.

The fact that India has joined the PAK FA program suggests that this fighter is promising and meets the highest requirements. New Delhi has allocated almost 25 billion dollars to this program and expects to receive its own version of the fifth-generation fighter by 2018.

It is the Indian-Russian version that will be offered for export, while the T-50 will go exclusively to the military Aviation Russia, for example, that the American F-22 is intended only for the US Air Force. Russian pilots are awaiting the entry into service of new fighters in 2013, it is planned to purchase at least 70 aircraft.

    planned to purchase at least 70 cars

    What kind of news is this?
    Only 70 cars? Or until 20xx 70 cars? Why only 70 cars?

      And as long as normal. He will be more expensive. And the cheaper 22 ++ planes will be able to cope with the same F-4s.

        Ooooh, you shouldn't be so. The Raptor will easily crumble everything that Russia has from a great distance, remaining unnoticed, and no amount of super-maneuverability will help here.

      According to statistics, during the 1st World War, an average of 11 thousand shells was required to destroy an enemy aircraft! In the 30s already 4 thousand. To the 2nd world for the destruction of the 1st aircraft required only 600 shells. Now only 2 missiles are consumed to destroy an aircraft!
      The T-50 aircraft is new and quite expensive, but in terms of combat capabilities it surpasses modern aircraft in service. Therefore, a small amount is offset by the quality of excellence. If we talk about classmates, i.e. F22, then the ratio of 70: 180 At first glance, 2.5 times less, but the a-T50 is in some places superior to the F22, b-for the defense of the country this is enough because The United States will not be able to put on our borders all 180 raptors that will also cover the skies of the United States.
      Conclusion: 70 T50 today and until 2020 is enough for the defense of Russia and allows you to save, because Do not forget about the Su35. According to the circumstances (the success of our friends) you can always wake up the production of T50 to the right volumes.

    Yesterday I saw the STELS American film, so they DREAMED so much that it would have been ridiculous to invent it for about 100 years, of course, they showed how our Su-37s are being hit ... it seems that they have an army all in cinema, but in reality they are cardboard soldiers. .. Has anyone watched? they heard how they called the super duper engine, generally laughter ...

      I watched a movie created specifically to soar the brains of American taxpayers about the need to spend money on developing weapons

    Are these 70 cars interesting how many times will exceed the budget of our republic? all the same, the amount is rather big, and immediately hundreds will not work, the main thing is that there would be purchases every year, and not by piece.

    Apparently, too, gets up a pretty penny, at first they seemed to talk about a hundred. Yes, and the budget
    began to limp.

      Then it is necessary to steal less and for aviation and navy and housing and communal services and science, enough for everything. It will also remain.

    Well done! It is doubtful that in 2013 will receive 70 cars. And the main thing is not to stop the development of the aircraft after it goes into series. Immediately begin to modernize, develop, improve.

      Of course, there is no question of delivering all 70 cars in a year. The point is to deliver this amount altogether, I think, by 2020.

    It's a strange article. In which 2013 "are they expected to enter service?" What is the EPR 0,5 sq. M?
    The author seems whitewashed.

      Yes, the first series will go into service in 2015. The author confused the top three with the five ...
