In the USA: New capabilities of the Su-57 make it even more attractive to the market

Russian fifth-generation Su-57 heavy fighters have received new capabilities that make them even more attractive in the arms market, writes the American edition of Military Watch.

In June 2020, the multifunctional Su-57 was tested in an unusual role. He commanded and controlled a group of 35 ++ generation Su-4 multirole fighters. Moreover, the "flock" of Su-35s participated in this experiment with the Su-57 in real combat conditions. Now Russian fighters can operate in a single information space, which significantly increases the overall combat effectiveness and potential of the Aerospace Forces.

It is unclear whether the tested Su-57 was serial or is one of the prototypes that have been used for testing for several years. The two prototypes were previously deployed at the Russian Khmeimim airbase in Syria, where they flew combat missions against jihadists. Perhaps the experiment with the Su-35 group was carried out there.

The Su-35 has been in service since 2014. They are designed on the basis of the Soviet Su-27s to counter the fifth-generation American fighters F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II.

Military Watch clarifies that the transformation of the Su-57 into a "command plane" became possible thanks to the introduction of artificial intelligence, which, in turn, reduced the workload on the pilot.

It is known that the Russians intend to start testing the upgraded version of the Su-57 from 2022 and complete them in two years. The plane should have new engines, avionics and weapons. Maybe it will be called "Su-57M" or "Su-60".

      It will be soon, the assembly of the second serial has already begun.
      With such aircraft, the need for cumbersome AWACS will be reduced.

        With such a production rate, this fighter will go straight to the aviation museum, and not on combat duty ... No.

          The F-22 went into production 11 years after the first flight, the 35th even later. Nothing got into the museum. We finished in nine years, it's a pity that the first one crashed, of course.

            You have obvious problems with arithmetic. The program for the creation of a fifth generation fighter was launched in Russia in May 5. And there is still no fighter, what is it 2001 years ago? sad

              And with your care, read above :), from the moment of the first flight. And so the F-22 has been developed since 1982, and went into series in 2001.

            ?? The first flight of the F-22 was in 1997 (the XF-22 prototype took off in 1990), commissioned in 2005.
            2005 - 1997 = 8 years old.

              In 1997, a modified prototype took off, and the first flight was in 1990, the start of serial production in 2001, a total of 11 years.
              If we count according to your methodology, then the pre-production model of the Su-57 first flight in 2017, the serial production of 2019 was kept within two years, it turns out.

    In general, the gunner until today was AWACS, such as the "overseers", the Su-57 will not surpass the powerful "overseer", just add on the ground, with a possible AWACS "departure" in losses, which should be expected in case of serious conflicts ...
