A flying laboratory based on the Su-57 is already working out an unmanned mode

The Russian military-industrial complex does not stand still. A flying laboratory based on the fifth-generation multifunctional fighter Su-57 is already working out an unmanned mode. This was reported RIA News" source in the industry.

An unmanned mode is being developed on the basis of the T-50 flying laboratory. The pilot is in the cockpit during the flight, but only controls the performance of all functions

- said the source.

It should be noted that Su-57 fighters (factory T-50 index, according to NATO codification: Felon - “Criminal”) are designed to destroy all types of air, ground and surface targets. Most of the information about the Su-57 is classified. Moreover, it is known that the Su-57 belongs to the class of heavy fighters, has stealth, supersonic cruising speed and the ability to maneuver with great overloads.

The Su-57 fighter first flew January 29, 2010. In 2013, small-scale production began for testing weapons, engines and equipment. On February 21-23, 2018, four Su-57s were transferred from Russia to Syria at the Khmeimim air base for testing in real combat conditions.

At the end of June 2019, the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the supply of 76 Su-57s as part of the Army 2019 forum. Then the Sukhoi Design Bureau reported that the Su-57 was launched into serial production.

But, at the end of December 2019 in the Far East, during the factory tests, he suffered crash the first production Su-57, which was supposed to be handed over to the Russian military. After that, the head of the Rostec state corporation Sergey Chemezov announced that deliveries of the Su-57 to the Russian Aerospace Forces will begin in 2020.

    Why not introduce its own codification of their weapons in the Russian Federation? And assign the F-35 the code "Baby".

      Then in foreign media even articles from our media will not be mentioned with such a codification, not like comments ...
      Well, and for ours, to savor such "respectful" names as to smear with "jam", although yes, again an incorrect generalization ...

      For the F-35, I would suggest an option - a werewolf (since the rule of law, the association is imposed) or a maniac, killing quietly stealthily.

        These are too serious names for such a misunderstanding. To the kilometer-long list of shortcomings the other day a recommendation was added not to fly faster than the speed of sound on this miracle of nature. Something is peeling off and the antenna is deformed.
        It turns out that this is a first generation fighter jet, with some elements of all subsequent ones, even the fifth.

      Assign the F-35 code "Baby".

      This, as you put it, "Baby" is successfully operated in a number of countries, performs combat missions and, in the opinion of the pilots and command, is a formidable weapon, a promising multifunctional combat vehicle. There are already more than 500 aircraft in the world, but the Russian Su-57, "having no analogues in the world," cannot boast of such achievements ...

        This is the specifics of US marketing, and not the dignity of the machine.
