The appearance of the Russian strategic bomber PAK DA is revealed

Tupolev PJSC specialists have published a patent, which most likely reveals the appearance and main technical characteristics of the new Russian strategic bomber.

Patent number RU209424U1 tells about a "utility model of an aircraft engine air intake" and contains a diagram of a new advanced long-range aviation complex (PAK DA).

According to sources, the aircraft will have subsonic speed and high range. The aircraft will receive intra-fuselage weapons, including long-range hypersonic missiles.

The appearance of the Russian strategic bomber PAK DA is revealed

At the end of August last year, the then head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov announced the start of the assembly of experimental models of PAK DA bombers. The aircraft is planned to be put into service until 2027.

Meanwhile, Russian troops, in the course of a special operation in Ukraine, began to use a new aviation reconnaissance system for the Su-34 bomber. According to sources, the device allows you to accurately determine the coordinates of various targets, including enemy air defense systems and radar installations, and transmit information about them to ground facilities. The equipment was created at the Russian Research Institute "Kulon".

    Pak-fa's appearance was revealed in 2010 during the 1st flight.
    In 2022, 4 SU-57s are in service.
    Pak-fa hasn't even taken off yet.
    But the picture is beautiful, yes.

      No. For the first time, the real appearance of the PAK-FA was lit up on the Paralay website, several years before the first flight. But then, of course, no one guessed that this was actually a real appearance)))

      what's the point of hiding the face of the plane? I'm sure this is the real design of the airframe, it has two NK-32 afterburning engines, which means it will carry 6 Calibers in the drum compartment, on the Tu160 4 NK-32 engines and two compartments, 6 missiles in each drum compartment. on the basis of PAKDA, you can also make AWACS. the design of all new products (su57,75, Okhotnik, PAKDA) VKS is disclosed, now only the design of the MiG-41 remains undisclosed)) maybe it will be like this

      There are three Tulips and one Sunflower in Donbass. More is not required.

    Those who lived in the USSR probably remember how secret all new developments were and under no circumstances never revealed not only the appearance, but even talk about something new, it all bordered on the disclosure of state secrets. Now, all and sundry, from the guarantor to the designers, can talk about these topics with absolute impunity, although half of what has been announced has either not yet been put into service, or created in single copies.

      I must admit this all bordered on crazy insanity, the defense of the USSR would not have suffered if the appearance of the MiG-21 had been known to the amers in advance, for example, 5-10 years

    This pack-fat was thirty years late, and now it looks like a steam locomotive among electric locomotives. Opportunity for later life developments in Pak-fa, so transfer to UAV. So far, slow and relatively lightweight propellers are working, but the development is natural for strike UAVs into more armed high-speed jet ones. Here the "Hunter" is in the stream, it has not yet been widely used and has not shown its capabilities, although its subsonic speeds are already clearly too small. New generations of high-speed UAVs, more payload, are expected. Yes, and air defense will be adjusted to the shooting of new ones, the eternal competition of the sword and shield ... Therefore, for the pack-fa of the wide sky and successful work in the form of a UAV.

    Duc, yes, lit up for a long time.
    But the article serves as a clear illustration of the joke "promises-reality"
    The photo shows a beautiful model with a streamlined cabin and contours.
    The diagram shows simple glazing, straight lines from the 80s, and a classic air intake from above, which for some reason goes down.

    Maybe disinformation of opponents?

    In fact, there was only a patent for air intakes (there is no transfer of mechanical stress to the airframe), and the contour of the aircraft itself was made in the form of a "typical primitive". The only fact is that this is a flying wing. And the deuce of engines says that the plane is small and not very long-range.

    In short: the article is a drip of saliva on a beautiful box in which there are no candies. tongue
    Emotional fake. negative
