MW: Forget the Su-57, the new Russian interceptor will outshine it


The Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57, which entered service in December 2020, promises to be one of the first in the world to operate Technology sixth generation. At the same time, Russia began to develop a powerful and even more advanced heavy interceptor MiG-41, which is already classified as the sixth generation, writes the American edition of Military Watch.


The upgraded Su-57 will receive the superior Saturn 30 aircraft engines, improved artificial intelligence and the ability to fly flocks of drones. It will become a formidable foe for future sixth generation NATO fighters such as the American FX and British Tempest.

However, the new Russian "super-interceptor" will outshine even the Su-57, becoming the most dangerous combat aircraft in Russia, MW analysts say.

While the Su-57 will be a good complement to the Su-30 and Su-35, the promising MiG-41 should replace the MiG-31, which has been in service for 40 years. Prior to the adoption of the Su-57, the MiG-31BSM variant was the most dangerous aircraft for air combat.

Economic the recession in the 90s seriously affected the entire industry of post-Soviet Russia. Nevertheless, the MiG-31 was significantly improved, including the introduction of the Zaslon-M radar, R-37 air-to-air missiles, Dagger hypersonic ballistic missiles, anti-satellite missiles, as well as new electronic warfare systems and new avionics.

The MiG-41 will become an even more sophisticated and formidable aircraft and will certainly not be exported. Little is known from his classified program. It will become even faster than its predecessor, it will be able to detect targets at a greater distance (up to 500 km) and fight in near space, and its missiles, flying at a speed of Mach 14, will hit targets at ranges up to 600 km, posing a serious threat to the enemy's hypersonic weapons ...

Su-57 should become a mass aircraft and go for export. Therefore, the MiG-41 will pose the greatest threat to NATO because of its strategic role in the conduct of war in near space. Probably, the cost of the MiG-41 will be more than double that of the Su-57, which will affect the number of combat units built.

      Are you able to clearly present the essence of the article? It seemed to me that this is Krylov's fable - once a swan pike with cancer, he was going to drag it here, but the swan was not given to the pike with cancer. The moral of this fable is as follows - gathered in a bad company
      Article is not worth its title

      The American edition is written on. Just another horror story about the Russian "Miracle" weapon, for their Senate, they say it is necessary to somehow eliminate the threat, give our American "generals" another hundred lards of ever-green FRS banknotes.

        The revised text of the original is also good and in the right direction.
        What distinguishes a serious article from a blah blah is that they provide a link to the original article.
        The Russian must believe that they will have all the best. It will be. In a day or two, he will forget about the article, but faith in a bright future and in his superiority will remain.

    Why compare green to soft? These are different aircraft for different tasks.
    Which is better, KAMAZ or Porsche?
