The first serial Su-57 climbed into the sky after crashed a year ago


In the Khabarovsk Territory, the first serial multifunctional fighter of the fifth generation Su-57 took off. It took off from the airfield of the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant named after Yu.A. Gagarin, made a test flight and successfully landed on the runway.


In social networks, this Su-57 has already been nicknamed "the second first serial". The thing is that the pilot batch of fighters for the Russian Aerospace Forces was supposed to consist of a pair of Su-57s. But December 24, 2019 a crash occurred the first serial Su-57 during factory tests. It crashed when the engines were checked during a test flight. The test pilot was not injured and managed to eject. The plane itself belonged to the manufacturer.

After the incident, all flights of the Su-57 were terminated. The aircraft manufacturers promised to sort things out and by the end of 2020 to transfer the new first serial Su-57 to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. Moreover, having specified that he will rise into the sky before the end of October. And while they keep their word.

In 2019, a contract was signed for the production of 76 Su-57 units for the Russian Aerospace Forces. The military plans to re-equip three air regiments with such fighters by 2028. However, until 2023, all production Su-57s will be equipped with engines of the first stage - AL-41F1 ("product 117"). Starting in 2023, the Su-57 should begin to install "product 30" (it does not yet have an index) - the engine of the second stage. Engaged in the development of the OKB im. A. Lyulki (branch of PJSC "UEC-UMPO") and how claim at the enterprise, on these power units the cruising speed of the fighter will be supersonic.

Lyulki (a branch of PJSC "UEC-UMPO") and, according to the company, on these power units the cruising speed of the fighter will be supersonic.

    This means that in the next four years the question of resuming the production of the F-22, possibly an updated, modernized version, will arise, since the F-35 will not be competitive in the sky.

            Kholui humor? smile In 2023, the youngest F-22 will be 13 years old, and the oldest 26 years old. Aircraft need modernization, and this is a problem. The ruins of a highly developed civilization are not capable of producing components for this aircraft. request Production will have to be rebuilt from scratch. How many of them will remain by 2023 is a big question. I guess about 10, my forecast is not worse than yours winked

              You certainly do.

              In 2023, the youngest F-22 will be 13 years old, and the oldest 26 years old.

              Aircraft need modernization, and this is a problem.

              laughing 26 years is, of course, so terribly long :)

              We look:

              2013 - The US Air Force Command signed a contract with the American company Lockheed Martin for the modernization of F-22 Raptor fighters until 2023, the deal amounted to $ 6,9 billion, the new agreement implies the consistent modernization of combat aircraft to version Increment 3.1, and later Increment 3.2A and Increment 3.2B.

              2020 - The U.S. Air Force embarks on the Advanced Raptor Enhancement and Sustainment (ARES) program, the latest major update to the F-22 Raptor aircraft.

              As you can see, the planes are being modernized as planned, there are no problems with this.

              The ruins of a highly developed civilization are not capable of producing components for this aircraft.

              laughing Your fantasies are getting more wonderful :)

              How many of them will remain by 2023 is a big question. I guess about 10


              by 2023, all aircraft available today will remain in service. And there are 187 serial pieces :) Why should 187 of them remain out of 2 in 10 years?)

              my forecast is no worse than yours

              You do not have a forecast, but fantasies, unfounded)

              My prediction is based on the official MoD plans for service to 2027 year 76 aircraft.

              Hope you are able to divide 76 by 7? :) Or help you?)

                Hope you are able to divide 76 by 7? :) Or help you?)

                As for mathematics ... try multiplying the result by at least 2, because until 2023 at least two years. If you get 10 as a result, then I am ready to continue the discussion, if not, then go to the fence to glue pro-American leaflets, do not litter comments with your nonsense. negative

                  laughing We read your first comment:

                  This means that in the next four years the question of resuming production will arise. F-22, possibly an updated, modernized version for F-35 in the sky will not be competitive.

                  Not a word about Su-57, but F-22 and F-35 were mentioned once laughing
                  Pull the beam out of your eye first, guardian of the purity of comments.

                  "try to multiply the result by at least 2, because until 2023 at least two years."

                  It's just that since the beginning of the contract (May 15, 2019), a year and a half has passed, and already entered service whole xnumx fighter, one of which - well, that, "he fell" (c).

                  So about 10 by 2023 - I'm really an optimist.

                  However. even if we apply the data at the rate of 10 aircraft per year, then 20 versus 187 is, of course, a breakthrough :)

                You don’t guess that there may be two or three MO contracts for an initial batch of aircraft, extended in time. As was the case with the new Su-34 or Su-35.

            You are an optimist, however. So far, only one aircraft has been able to take off for the first time in a year, and this is far from the end of work on it. It's scary to think how long it will take for Russia to produce 76 cars. winked

      for the F-35 in the sky will not be competitive.

      Why is that? Close air combat takes place at subsonic speed, not supersonic. The speed advantage of the Su-57 will manifest itself only in one case - if it gets away from the F-35 laughing Then yes

        The F-35 is a slow-moving, clumsy cow, in close combat it has no chance.

          F-35 is a slow-moving, clumsy cow,

          The calculated aerodynamic overloads of the F-35A are 9g, for the Su-57 this figure is 10-11 g. Well, just a huge advantage :)

          And if we consider that in a real battle, and not at an air show, no one maneuvers with such overloads, then the advantage is generally zero.

          Speed ​​- yes, here the Su-57 is ahead. But he will need it only in case of draping :)

          I think the discussion is over

          Discussion is when opponents argue their point of view. With your argumentation, it’s not that there’s trouble - there’s none at all :) Happy

          F-22 and F-35 are fundamentally different machines, each of them is designed to solve its own problems. Until now, the Israelis have successfully managed without the F-22, apparently the IDF leadership decided that at this stage Israel also needs these aircraft. In any case, this has nothing to do with the first flight of the next Russian Su-57.

            Exactly yes Calling the F-35 a fighter is hard for me. He may be good for his tasks, but not any fighter.

            Until now, the Israelis have successfully dispensed with the F-22, apparently the IDF leadership decided that at this stage Israel also needs these aircraft.

            Apparently, an enemy has appeared on the horizon, to counter which an F-22 is needed, it is unlikely that Iran built something like that ...

            In any case, this has nothing to do with the first flight of the next Russian Su-57.

            And with what? smile In my opinion, it is quite clearly written that the F-35 in its characteristics is decently inferior to the F-22 (and this is far from news), and the performance characteristics of the latter are approximately the same as that of the SU-57.

              Yes, the Su-57 does not exist yet as a combat vehicle and it is unclear when it will actually exist. How can you compare the performance characteristics of an aircraft that has long been in service with something that does not exist?

      In 10 years, as many as 10 Su-57s, which have no analogues in the world, will disperse one and a half hundred F-22s! The Su-57 is 50% crude and will remain so for a long time, there is no engine, no radar, what kind of avionics is worth after the sanctions is not clear, the EPR requirements do not correspond to the 5th generation. It is necessary to redo the device.
