The US tried to figure out what kind of hypersonic missile the Su-57 is testing


Russians claimthat their fifth-generation Su-57 fighter has already begun testing the latest compact and maneuverable hypersonic air-to-surface missile, writes the American online edition The Drive, trying to find out what kind of ammunition in question.


Now we cannot say exactly what kind of rocket it is. However, it is known that hypersonic weapons usually use ramjet engines (ramjet) operating at speeds exceeding Mach 5. Probably, the Russians will eventually check the combat use of the new ammunition in Syria.


The size of the missile and its apparent optimization for the Su-57 suggest that it is one of the weapons that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu mentioned on February 9, 2021. The minister said that in the future, Russia's non-nuclear deterrent forces will be based on hypersonic missile systems of "various types."

We remind you that the Russian pilots are already armed with the excellent hypersonic missile 9-A-7660 "Dagger" (Kh-47M2 "Dagger"). But it is very large and at the moment it is only carried by the heavy high-altitude MiG-31K. Russia, based on the scientific breakthroughs of modern times and the achievements accumulated by the USSR, is going to make even more progress in this matter.

The internal compartments of the Su-57 are indeed very small (up to 4,3 meters) in length, and the existing hypersonic systems simply cannot fit there. From this, we can assume that the above-mentioned "functional" model is either a really completely new development, or a rocket that is associated with the Brahmos II (joint Russian-Indian development).

At the same time, Russia is working on other weapons adapted for the Su-57, including the Kh-58UShK medium-range anti-radar guided missile, and the Kh-69, an air-to-surface subsonic weapon for destroying targets up to 180 km away. ...

              the CIA has its own prisons, but the FSB does not - because human rights. I think this injustice must be overcome - and the first characters to go to the housewarming are all these poor + underground of the Caucasus

              Both those and others (liberda | emo-communists | Wahhabis | anarchists) want to destroy the constitutional order of my state, i.e. lower my standard of living and my social security - they want to make my Russian girl a festering Khakhlastan with their civil war. Both those and others - the Central Administration and funding are received from plus or minus one office overseas (CIA, NSA), whose goal is to destroy my country.

              This office has already destroyed many countries. So everything would be quite real if it were not for counterintelligence and the FSB with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the army

              Therefore, the punishment must be very severe. Very harsh.

                I don’t think it’s worth stopping to that. There are legal methods. Otherwise, this is the road to the "good old days" when spies and scouts cut each other in silence. If only they themselves force events, only as "tit for tat", but this is not our choice. In a sense, this is certainly happening in our time, but on a smaller scale. I suppose ours are responding adequately, they simply do not advertise their activities. Probably those who will live up to those times will learn a lot of interesting things about the role of the Russian special services in certain processes in the West. And yet, the FSB has its own isolation wards. I would not want to live up to the moment when we will have prisons of the western model where people are tortured with electric shocks and heated with water. This will mean that we have become just like them.

      An interesting suggestion. And you were not dropped on the tile at birth?

        Do not judge by yourself. Not everyone is as unlucky as you. The consequences are still being felt. )

          alex5450... Brevity, the sister of talent, but not always.

          I would venture to suggest that the lack of meaning and angry 123... Do not be offended!

          He did not understand that the main semantic load in your words lies with the ellipsis. I'm right?

          I did not find any mentions that "the layout was dropped", neither in the article, nor in the source of The Drive, nor under your link. It is indicated that "performed test flights with functional mock-ups".

            123... Another thing is interesting here, I think that alex5450 for the first time I read the article inattentively and only when checking the information, but from another source, I noticed that they were working with layouts, albeit functional ones.

            Then he commented. Don't be angry with him. Although let's not guess, if he wants to, he will explain.

            PS I don’t think that our opponent was dropped on the tile in childhood, maybe they didn’t.
