China said that the requirements for the new MiG-41 go beyond the capabilities of the Russian Federation

Moscow announced the development of a new fifth-generation fighter-interceptor, the MiG-41. The plane will be able to carry out arctic missions and fly into near space. Russia is currently implementing several defense programs at once - will the state master the work within the MiG-41? Experts of the Chinese newspaper "Zhongguo Junwang" argue about this.

It is assumed that the new fighter will be equipped with the most modern technical equipment for search and detection of targets, as well as the ability to effectively hide from enemy radar. The MiG-41 will be equipped with a ramjet engine or even a pulse detonation power plant.

The aircraft's speed will reach about Mach 4-4,5, and the range will reach 31 kilometers (its predecessor, the MiG-700, has a range of 720-37 km). The main armament of the new fighter is long-range air-to-air missiles (including the R-XNUMX missile system). It will also be able to use the long-range intercept missile system (MFRK DP), anti-missile laser weapons and aerospace weapons to attack objects in low orbit.

It is expected that the first flight of the MiG-41 will take place in 2025, and will enter service with the Russian armed forces in 2028.

Along with the development of a new combat aircraft, the Russian Federation is implementing the expensive PAK DA (long-range aviation complex) and Su-57 projects. In this regard, the question arises as to whether the state will be able to maintain the proper quality of design work on the MiG-41.

Aircraft design standards are very high, and some of them exceed the technological capabilities of Russia. It is too early to draw conclusions about how successfully this project can be completed.

- Chinese experts doubt.

    There is a project with technical characteristics, there is a plan for putting into service. This means there must be funding. And our "kulibins" have already proved that they can do the impossible! And the Chinese do not need to be envious, they would help better financially. Then they will still beg.

    Let China first make a copy of the Soviet T-72 tank, so that the rollers do not fall off on the tank biathlon, like the current Chinese tanks, and then talk about the capabilities of the Russian Federation.

    On VO just an article about this 6th generation. There are simply all the Wishlist mixed in a bunch, without justification of what exactly is needed.

    In general, you can already forget about 2025 and 2028. This is just a lie from 5 years ago. As well as about punishing liars and promissed ones, you can also forget.
    Now the super-super-efficient Serdyukov rules there, after the previous ones he is also super-super-efficient ...

    The Chinese still wrote very, very, very politely ...

    All this is wonderful, but these "kulibins" must be protected and protected like the apple of an eye! What is going on in the atomic sphere -

    The main thing is that it does not remain at the development stage and has a logical conclusion and, accordingly, production!

      I will say modestly, the sawing has begun, well, until 2028 everyone will forget, and no one will find the new Willy in France.

    The technical and technological capabilities of the Russians are a secret ... even for the Russians themselves. Not for the Chinese to discuss this! Your technological capabilities are stolen from all over the world ...
