MW: Where the Russian Su-57 surpassed all other fighters


The new-generation Su-57 fighters entering service with the Russian Aerospace Forces compare favorably with many foreign counterparts in a wider range of weapons, as well as in target engagement range. Military Watch experts discuss the advantages of the Russian combat aircraft.


The publication compares the Su-57 with the American F-22, F-35 and Chinese J-20. The Russian fighter is a heavy, twin-engine combat aircraft, similar in weight to the F-22 and J-20, but designed to carry a significantly higher payload - up to eight air-to-air missiles, housed in unique tandem internal compartments.

In addition to long-range missiles, the Su-57 has additional missile bays on either side of the air intakes, allowing it to carry two specialized short-range missiles. In total, the aircraft can be armed with ten air-to-air missiles, which is 250% of the capacity of the F-35's internal compartments.

The Su-57 uses two types of missiles to destroy long-range air targets - the K-77 and the R-37, which compare favorably with their American and Chinese counterparts. The K-77, with a range of about 200 km, has a new generation homing head, which makes it extremely difficult to evade the missile. It is easier to evade maneuverable targets from the R-37, but they are designed primarily to defeat AWACS aircraft and tankers at a distance of up to 400 km.

Thus, the Su-57 surpasses its American and Chinese counterparts not only in the number of air-to-air missiles, but also in their range.

The depth of the Su-57's weapon bays allows them to accommodate larger caliber ammunition - in this it differs from the F-22 and J-20, but somewhat similar to the F-35, which was designed to carry heavy bombs such as the B61. These weapon bays allow the Russian fighter to carry Drel-type guided bombs and aeroballistic missiles, which are nearing completion. It is expected that the new modification of the Kh-47M2 "Dagger" missile will provide a range of destruction of ground targets of the order of 2000 km - several times longer than that of the F-22 or F-35.

The Su-57 can also carry high-precision cruise missiles such as the Kh-38. This great versatility is a unique feature of the Russian combat aircraft, allowing it to perform missions unavailable for the F-22 and J-20.

    How can SU-57 be superior to something if it exists only in prototypes, and one serial is in trial operation?

      How can SU-57 be superior to something

      In terms of objective technical parameters, it is superior. Trial operation is intended for this purpose, so that some structural defects do not go into series.
      Fu 35 was stamped in hundreds, and then it turns out that the coating is peeling off, the tail falls off, 2 modifications out of 3 cannot fly faster than 1M, ship-based aircraft can only work with four ships in the entire fleet (something was not foreseen there or you closed your eyes) ... The production was stopped. This plane is not needed. How much money did you spend?
      We had such an approach between the world wars. At the same time, we were forgiven, as Stalin said in 1932: "Either we will run this path in 10 years or they will crush us." There was a need to run. Have time.
      Now this approach is not necessary. We do not have. They have: they really want money, by any means.
      And we have good equipment, in an amount sufficient for the defense of the country and participation in local conflicts. And the new one must be tested in every possible way, checked, and the defects discovered must be eliminated.

    Thus, the Su-57 is superior to its American and Chinese counterparts.

    No need to run ahead of the locomotive. The plane is planned to be good. But in what it surpasses it will be possible to say in 3-4 years, when there will be at least 20 of them. I will only be glad if the forecast comes true!

    Of course, there is no need to rush, but we also need to slow down serial production once again, we need such aircraft only yesterday, and in large quantities, it is necessary to systematically increase serial production while accelerating the introduction of all promising structural elements, including the second stage engine (product 30 ).

    It's all bullshit. Compare every 2 weeks.
    And to compare at all nefig.

    F35 - single-engine pot-bellied bomber !!!
    it was immediately stated that the speed is lower, station wagon, communications, electronics, but the number is already over 500 ..
    F22 is a 20-year-old highly specialized, expensive stealth fighter that never found opponents.
    J-20 - production has already started, but there are no good engines
    And ours. In a single copy, but good. Probably.

    Endogan and Indians are turning up their nose for now, but the Americans are praising and praising ...

      - A rule that is more than 5000 years old: "If the enemy is publicly praising you - be alert: something is unclean here!"
      ...............................
      And the traditional question: on the F-22 there is a block of Luneberg lenses, on the F-35 there are such blocks, on the J-20 it is also installed. And on the Su-57 there was nothing of the kind and is not present! wink
      Therefore - how will they "bow" when they meet ?! lol

    - And what is the Su-57 better than the Su-35S ?! And if better - how much ??

    Funny as children.
    They naively believe God knows what nonsense.
