In the Far East, the first serial fighter Su-57 fell


On December 24, 2019, the Komsomolsk-on-Amur administration (Khabarovsk Territory) reported that during the factory tests (checking the engines), the latest Su-57 multi-functional fighter (T-50 factory index) fell in the taiga. It is clarified that the crash occurred with the product belonging to the manufacturer.


The test pilot managed to eject. He was found in the taiga and delivered by Mi-8 helicopter to the enterprise - Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant named after Yu. A. Gagarina ”(KNAAZ), a branch of Sukhoi Company PJSC (part of the United Aircraft Corporation), which has its own Dzemgi airfield. It is reported that the pilot was not injured. At the same time, the aircraft manufacturer has not yet commented on what happened.

It should be noted that the fifth-stage fighters of the Su-57 are temporarily installing the engines of the first stage - AL-41F1 (product 117). Over time, they should be replaced by “Product 30” - completely new engines of the second stage of the PAK FA program.

By the way, on the super-maneuverable Su-35 (generation 4 ++) dual-circuit turbojet engines AL-41F1S (product 117C) developed by the Design Bureau named after A. Lyulki (branch of PJSC UEC-UMPO). From the engine for the Su-35, the engines of the first stage for the Su-57 are distinguished by increased traction and a number of other characteristics. But in general, this is a good, proven, modified and reliable unit.

In this regard, it can be assumed that in the taiga the prototype of the Su-57 crashed with “products 30”, the tests of which were carried out. We remind you that the Su-30 made its first flight with the “Product 57” on December 5, 2017. Since then, work to improve the unit has not stopped. This engine has introduced many innovations that so far have no analogues in the world. This explains a lot.


At the same time, the topic is actively discussed on the Web that in the Khabarovsk Territory the first production Su-57 actually crashed, the photos of which, from the assembly shop, were published in November 2019. By the end of this year - at the beginning of next year, the plane was promised to be handed over to the military. This information is also confirmed by the source of the Interfax agency.

    A serial machine cannot be owned by the manufacturer. Therefore, before finding out what the tail number was on the fallen car, you can safely write all this hype in the category "one grandma said."

      Prior to transfer to the customer, it belongs to the plant.

        Nominally, yes. But if we are talking about serial production, then for the delivery of the product to the customer under the contract, not tests are carried out, but an examination by a special commission. In addition, only the 11th and 12th production cars were discussed about the second stage engine. If the "product 30" was tested, then this is definitely not the board of the first series. That is why, if it fell in the process of state acceptance, there is no "product 30", if you tested your prototype, then it is not a serial machine (tail number in the taiga).

          Every production car passes flight tests. It should fly a small, but a certain number of hours, should be checked all the electronic systems of the aircraft, the operation of the engines. And before the transfer to the customer, which, incidentally, was to be held on December 27, the aircraft belongs to the manufacturer.

          Regarding the engine, only an assumption was put forward in the news, which was not subsequently confirmed.

            In hype everything is mixed in a heap: both a series and 30. It makes no sense to hide the fact of the fall of the item being transmitted by the MO, so they would write "during acceptance tests", and not engine tests.

            Quote: RIA
            It was planned to transfer the crashed plane this week to the Ministry of Defense, an informed source told RIA Novosti.

            Such "informed sources" complete Twitter with a slide.

              At RIA, information about the serial appeared 2 hours after the news came out with us ....

                They are also an aggregator, from Internet sites and grabbed "conclusions".
                That's when the phrase "The serial number belonged to the car ..." will be finished, then I may be able to admit that I was wrong. Be careful not to shield the version of the serially falling Russian planes.

                  RIA is not an aggregator, but an information agency. Moreover, the largest audience in Russia. And RIA, as well as Interfax, refers to its own sources in the defense industry complex.

                  And yes, I’m calm like a boa constrictor and I’m not blocking anything. I just write, as it really is, and you rested your horns and butt.

                    Unconfirmed version (for now). I have every right to doubt public unproven versions.
                    If you are for the ultimate truth, then, purely technically and speaking in accounting language, "work in progress" generally fell near Khabarovsk, since it begins to be called an airplane only after the act of acceptance and placement on the site. storage of the test center (after testing). So the headline of such news still does not fall, under this version it is correct to write "a set of parts that outwardly resembles the Su-57 fell". This is to be absolutely precise and infallible. But we understand that journalists and "news agencies" are not feeding on the truth, but on "hot news" with similar headlines.

    ... fell in the taiga newest multi-functional fighter Su-57 (factory index T-50)

    ... the first flight with the “product 30” Su-57 made December 5 2017 years

    29 January 2010 years the first flight instance of the T-50 (Su-57) first flew [2], making a flight lasting about 45 minutes (January 29 2010 years the first flight instance of the T-50 (Su-57) first flew into the air [2], having made a flight lasting about 45 minutes [22])

    The airplane was long and hard PR. As a result, one of the first SERIES fell.
    Should there have been all the basic work out?
    So hype is not unfounded.

    In this engine many innovations are introduced, which so far have no analogues in the world. This explains a lot.

    Others already have serial fifth-generation aircraft. And here all "dviglo" cannot be cut down in a normal way. So what is the "no-analogy"? Lagging behind?

    Vladimir Putin, after observing the test of the aircraft in the summer of 2010, said: “At the first stage of the creation of the aircraft, 30 billion rubles were spent, the same amount is needed to complete the project” [28]. He explained that then the modernization of the engine, weapons and so on will begin [6]. Wherein, according to Putin, the plane will be 2,5-3 times cheaper than foreign analogues

    It remains only to clarify, due to which such a dramatic reduction in price can be achieved (if tax-free)?
    And how does this affect QUALITY?
    And isn't this the reason for the numerous "shoals" and "punctures" of military products from the Russian Federation?

      UpperMost (Innocent)The aircraft factory conducted factory tests. This was reported by TASS. The pilot is alive.
      PS Yes, the aircraft is the newest.

        That the pilot is alive - it's good. Human Life Above All.
        As for the plane - not convinced. They are not the newestand not serial (yet).
        Anyway, a "dark horse". And it seems to me, even for their testers. Alas.

          ... the car you drive also came off the assembly line of the plant. Before starting its production in the design bureau, they "invent" it, embody it in drawings and test samples made "by hand", ie. there is no factory production technology for the car yet, but the car already exists. If everything went well, it is necessary to create a technology by which the car will be produced at the factory. Factory testing is, among other things, the identification of shortcomings, and the improvement of assembly technology. The car is tested in extreme conditions.
          Of course, I simplified everything ... But, believe me, the information discussed is enough to conclude that the release of these machines is just around the corner.
