By 2024, Russia will receive a fundamentally new SSJ 100

The year 2020 will mark the beginning of the development of a new version of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft. Domestic designers were faced with a difficult task: to replace foreign components with Russian ones to the maximum and actually re-create a machine that is in demand on the world market.

To say that the past year did not work out for the SSJ 100 is to say nothing. The crash at Sheremetyevo, the refusal to operate the aircraft by the Irish airline CityJet, the ups and downs with the Mexicans and the failure of a major deal with Iran - this is not the whole list of problems of the Russian airliner.

As a result, in 2019, instead of the planned twenty Sukhoi Superjet 100, only one was sold. This figure was partially influenced by the postponement of the purchase of aircraft by domestic carriers for the next year, as new VAT benefits will come into force in January 2020.

The situation is aggravated by a rather specific niche in which our aircraft are located. For international lines it is too small, and for regional lines it is too large and expensive. Here, another 100 aircraft compete with the SSJ 2: the Airbus A320 and the Brazilian Embraer. At the same time, about 60 cars of this class are sold per year, half of which are Sukhoi Superjet.

But our plane also has another, much more serious problem. SSJ 100 almost entirely consists of foreign components. At one time when creating the liner, such a solution had undeniable advantages, since it allowed you to quickly get all the necessary certificates for operation around the world.

At that time, no one could have foreseen a quarrel with the collective West and the subsequent sanctions. The latter, in turn, caused a sharp increase in prices for components and an increase in the timing of their deliveries. This was not a serious problem while the planes were new. However, with the aging of the park, all delays began to fly a lot of costs for customers.

Now our engineers have to solve the issue of import substitution and return the SSJ 100 to the world market. At the end of the year, it became known that 15 billion rubles were allocated from the budget for the development of design documentation for the domestic version of Sukhoi Superjet. At the first stage, the share of Russian components should reach 50-60%. However, by 2024, Russia plans to get a brand new aircraft, which will have little in common with the existing one.

    And what prevents to revive "IL" or "TU" from the line? And when will the updated An-2 finally be launched? In the USSR, this was quickly resolved.

      Now it’s already easier and cheaper to do new things than to revive junk ... And they quickly decided in the USSR only on simple maize who could be assembled in the garage, now maize already become much more complicated and more technologically advanced.

      And what is there in the line of IL and TU that is sensible to take and begin to produce now? Even the IL-114, which, in principle, has a place to be, has not yet taken off, but already requires a major upgrade.

      Both the F-35 and F-22 aircraft are of a slightly different class than the PAK-FA. PAK-FA is a promising aviation complex: front-line aviation. That is, the SU-57 is NOT a FIGHTER, like the first two. SU-57 is a multi-purpose platform (attack aircraft, bomber, interceptor, Fighter, deck fighter, high-altitude reconnaissance), therefore, such a thing takes longer to develop and costs more.

        Interesting interpretation, i.e. does everything get cooler, longer, more complicated and more expensive from the chosen name? How about renaming "Federation"? Does the SU-57, for example, like the F-35, have a vertical takeoff option? So where is the "platform" and versatility without unnecessary loud terms?

    HM .... 4 years on the modernization of the wing ... This is a long time. The rest does not make sense to upgrade - and so everything is more than new.
