Media: The most important combat unit of the American F-57 was copied on the Su-22

The Russians, while developing their fifth-generation fighter Su-57, copied the most important combat unit from the American stealth aircraft F-22, writes the Indian Internet publication EurAsian Times.

Su-57 first flew in January 2010. Since then, experts have been wondering how complete and complete its design is.

In March 2020, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has spread a video showing how the in-flight Su-57 launches a rocket from a compartment hidden under the wing. These shots aroused great interest among specialists.

The Su-57 has four weapons bays. Two small ones are located at the base of the wings and a couple of larger ones are located at the bottom of the fuselage.

The Aviationist is confident that Russia is developing new missiles that will fit in the su-57 compartments under the wings. They noted that ensuring the rapid exit of the rocket from the compartment is of fundamental importance for a modern fighter. But this requires a rather complex mechanism.

The National Interest recalled that the F-22 has a special mechanism that pushes the AIM-9 missile out of the compartment under the wing. It was he, according to the media, that the Russians copied.

Experts noticed that no one has yet seen the opening of the secret missile compartment of the Su-57. At the same time, the Americans have demonstrated this repeatedly.

    Retractable chassis of various designs have been known since the 30s, for a century already. And bomb bays.

    Copying successful designs is not only possible, but also necessary, especially in military affairs. From ancient times, for example, the Romans, those best weapons were quickly adopted from everyone, including the barbarians, like the famous gladius sword from the Spaniards, etc. ... The main thing is to create effective weapons in all possible ways ...

    If no one saw it, it means they copied it for sure. Well, how else? After all, there is a highly likely magic spell, it cannot fail to work!
    And before the Second World War there was a story. Then (and later) our designers, eliminating the lag behind the West (well, there were no experienced designers in the required quantities), as much as possible ripped up everything they liked. And by the beginning of the 40s, it began to turn out quickly and efficiently.
    In 1940. our delegation went to Hitler and bought all the samples they liked of relatively new types of weapons. On the subject of overexposure and search for weak points in enemy vehicles.
    The Junkers used a rather clever parallelogram mechanism for quickly pulling the bomb out of the hatch. In order not to interfere with closing the hatch doors and so as not to catch its bomb with its tail when exiting a dive. This was the problem. You could mess with this mechanism ..
    But Tupolev, designing his future Tu 2, acted in Russian. I just didn't make the mechanism at all. No. After analyzing the behavior of air flows in the open hatch, he conducted several experiments and did the following: he did not hang the bombs as usual, parallel to the axis of the aircraft, but slightly inclined forward. As a result, the incoming air stream carried the bomb out of the hatch with a bang, faster than the tricky Junkers mechanism worked. Because there was simply nothing to work. And there is nothing to break.
    I am not saying that there is something like that. I just suggest not to consider our people half-witted.
    A Russian person is capable of non-standard solutions that would never occur to the Saxons in their heads. Such examples are darkness.

        It seems so to you. Or hear and see only what you want.
        Take Sikorsky, for example. A talented Russian aircraft designer left for the USA. Build planes until the crisis struck. The business sank. Then he decided to sit down on the topic of helicopters, where he worked successfully. But, I made a mistake. He has patented in his own name the automatic blade swashplate, known as the Yuryev swashplate. Yuriev stayed in the USSR and Sikorsky thought he was going to miss. But even before the Second World War they managed to give him a hand. Through the (American) court, it was confirmed that this machine was invented by Yuryev in 1916. This machine gun is an integral part of any modern helicopter.
        Medeleev's table of chemical elements. No comment.
        Television is Zvorykin, no one argues, although he left us for the West for Civilian, it was uncomfortable with us. But he made the fundamental inventions in Russia.
        The Americans had high-octane gasoline in World War II exclusively thanks to the work of Lieutenant General Ipatiev, who also left for the United States after the revolution.
        Engineer Ledin's explosives have allowed the USSR to surpass the entire world since 1941. to the 90s. He invented explosives for shells, torpedoes, missiles 1,8 times superior to their counterparts.
        Thanks to this, our aircraft easily defeated the American aircraft in the Korean War and prevented a new world war. The explosives that were placed in the small projectiles of the American aircraft cannons had no effect. Therefore, they preferred to put more 12,7 mm machine guns instead of cannons. And in ours, each small shell made a hole in the side of the B-29 a square meter. Anti-aircraft missiles and shells had the same story. Moreover, the secret was not in the composition of the explosive, but in the technology of its production. Everyone knew the composition, the analysis was not difficult to carry out, but they could not repeat the result. Until in the 90s some bastard handed over the technology to the Americans.
        The Tetris game was invented by Alexey Pajitnov. The game holds an absolute record for sales.
        Rosatom is ahead of the rest. This is a separate big topic.
        When our inventions are used in the West, they do it quietly. Examples are the sea. If you wish, you can find it on the Internet yourself.

    To copy the assembly from the F-22, the US Department of Defense kindly provided an aircraft for Russian designers. At the same time, the plane was carried at the expense of American taxpayers. The Indians began to have liberal diseases.

    You start the discussion by accepting in advance the unsubstantiated opinion of NI that the Russian Federation copied something there. The level and focus of their journalism (NI) has long been known, a purely ideological article. Nobody has seen these nodes on the SU-57 in the public domain.
