Danish analyst called Su-57 the best base for a new European fighter

The expert community in the West is increasingly inclined to believe that the American fifth-generation F-35 fighter is useless, and there is no point in buying it for European countries. Upgraded versions of the older F-16s and F-18s performed much better. This was written in the English-language blog on the website of the Russian International Affairs Council by a Danish analyst, master economic Sci. from Copenhagen Carsten Riise.

The American F-22 Raptor is a really good fighter, but it is not intended for export, produced in limited quantities (only 195 units) and will not be produced anymore, as all production lines and documentation have been destroyed. The European Eurofighter is seriously lagging behind in the technology race. The French also have nothing to brag about. All this indicates that the West is losing in this direction.

In early 2021, Paris and Berlin agreed to jointly develop a new European fighter, the Future Combat Air System (FCAS). The initiative to get the next generation Eurofighter is a move in the right direction, but the EU as a whole is hopelessly trailing behind, so the prospects are dim.

To get a truly competitive next generation combat aircraft, you need a machine with superior flight and performance characteristics for tomorrow. The EU needs an integrated human-electronics combat system with proper software, avionics, sensors, a weapon control system, and a variety of equipment and instrumentation. The main thing is that all this should be able to equip not one aircraft, but a number of aviation platforms, including unmanned ones. But the EU has nothing yet, so this project is unlikely to reach the finish line set for 2040 at all. However, if the Europeans are unable to develop such an aircraft themselves, they may try to join forces with Russia.

Moscow has put into service the excellent fifth-generation fighter Su-57. It is he who can become the base for the future European fighter. Without a doubt, today the Su-57 is the most advanced aircraft in its class. If the EU and the Russian Federation come to an agreement, then they can relatively quickly create a very real "master of the sky", which no one will be able to keep up with. This development will truly be a breakthrough and revolution for air warfare.

Such a project will bring Europeans and Russians very close, they will have to exchange technology and forget old grudges. Europe will get rid of years of dependence on the United States, while Russia will retain its independence from China, whose behavior is becoming more assertive. This is a win-win cooperation option that should not be missed.

In such a project, the core of which would be the EU and the Russian Federation, Pakistan and India can also be involved. Perhaps it would have been possible to achieve peace and good-neighborliness between these countries. Islamabad will get rid of Beijing's tutelage, and New Delhi will end up flirting with Washington. This would make it possible to combine gigantic human, industrial and scientific resources.

Therefore, to begin with, it is necessary to achieve mutual understanding, tolerance and trust between Moscow and Brussels. The same applies to the joint participation of Pakistan and India. This can be called a small start for great accomplishments.

    First, run the cn at full capacity ...
    So that another misunderstanding does not work out - a twin-engine aircraft that has the right to fly only on one engine.

    Everything is correct. What else to expect from hucksters? They have destroyed our sanctions, monuments and graves to our liberators. The whole history is being rewritten, and we have new technologies for them. Money doesn't smell. Everything that can be sold must be sold. This is Putin's motto - we will support the domestic producer !!!!

    How wonderful good forgotten old grievances, exchanged technologies, by the way Russian technologies laughing Europe from Lisbon to Vladivostok fellow Abandoned Americans cry on the sidelines crying
    Such fantasies could be attributed to naive dreaminess, if not a single phrase ...

    In such a project, the core of which would be the EU and the Russian Federation, Pakistan and India could also be involved.

    What do they have to do with it? Danish expert interested in Pakistani technologies?
    It's only about one thing, wave a carrot and drive a wedge between Russia and China.
    In what way his increasing assertiveness is expressed is not clear request

    ... Did you go over Carlsberg or what?

    First, Musk foolishly arrives in the Russian Federation and asks our rockets for his "tyrnet and flight to Mars", now this one believes that we will give technology to those "who have just released a report not long ago (London, some institute" House ")" that there are no negotiations with the Russians. They all grew insolent there ...

    - Strange ... - There was already an article ... - somewhere at the beginning of 2021 about the Su-57 ... - And it mentioned "Product 30" ... - And what ... - since then that -What has moved ??? - What is our Su-57 flying on today ???
    - After all, they seemed to have threatened to equip the Su-57 with a Saturn 30 power unit, which ... supposedly - will become the most powerful in the world among all those ever installed on aircraft of this type ...
    - And why is Europe so interested in the Su-57 ??? - For example ... - China does not cease to declare that, they say, their J-20 fighter is superior to the Su-57 in all respects ...
    - Of course, China in the near future is unlikely to supply this J-20 West to Europe (even an export version) ... - But our "altruists" ... - can easily present our Saturn 30 power unit to China on a silver platter. ... and, as always, practically for nothing ...- Here's a hundred pounds - so it will be ... - And the Chinese will quickly equip their J-20 with our Saturn 30 ... - and ... and ... and will be in chocolate ...
    - Zap Europe is well aware of these "altruistic inclinations" of Russia towards China ... - So Zap Europe is in a hurry ... - at least to acquire the "basic basis" of our Su-57 ...
    - And only all the "electronics" and "other stuffing" (moreover, they stuff others with their various equipment and apparatus and an adapted integrated combat system "man-electronics", etc.); and they will develop their own engine (or beg the Americans ... - as NATO members) ... - So Zap Europe wants to ... - get a "bird in a cage" ... - and leave Russia with a "pie in the sky" ...

    Yah !!! SU-57 is a good aircraft of the last century !!! The current plane must take off vertically, and fly in different trajectories, let's say a flying saucer !!! And SU - 57 is predictable rubbish !!!

    This Dane turned down of course. Considering where and what he wrote, it is obvious that he is offering himself in this regard, in the hope of a stable income. But let him first write this on the military watch or in some newspaper ... national interest is already writing for us
