Upgraded Su-57 took to the skies for the first time

October 21 in Zhukovsky (Moscow region) at the airfield LII them. M. M. Gromov passed the first flight of the modernized fifth-generation multifunctional fighter Su-57. On October 25, the public was informed about this by PJSC United Aircraft Corporation (part of the state corporation Rostec).

The aircraft giant said in a communiqué that the plane took to the skies and spent 56 minutes there without any complaints. The aircraft was piloted by Honored Test Pilot of Russia, Colonel of the Reserve Sergei Bogdan, Head of the Flight Service of the Sukhoi Design Bureau.

According to PJSC "UAC", the Su-57 is testing a set of on-board equipment "with extended functionality" - intelligent crew support and the ability to use a wide range of new types of weapons. In addition, the Su-57 now has the ability to install a “second stage” power unit (as long as the AL-41F1 is used on it).

We remind you that the first prototype created using of technologies stealth, took off from the ground in January 2010 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. As of May 2022, the Russian Aerospace Forces had 3 units of serial Su-57 fighters that can carry weapons in the internal fuselage compartments. On September 22, Rostec announced that a new batch (approximately of two units) of Su-57 fighters will go to the Russian Aerospace Forces in the near future, and the pace of production of new aircraft will be increased. The head of the state corporation, Sergei Chemezov, specified that the agreed Su-57s are in a high degree of readiness and will enter the troops before the end of this year.

      It's very simple! Why do we exhibit military products at international exhibitions? My version! If contracts are concluded with other countries, then it goes into the series for our defense industry. If there are no contracts, then it does not go into the series for the defense industry. RSZO, aviation. Such a scheme was invented 10 years ago, or maybe later. So they saved on the military budget. BMP-3 640-740 pcs. for the country, and about 1300 for export, the BTR-90 "Rostok" was killed in 2009, for the sake of "Boomerang" 12 years have passed neither Boomerang nor BTR-90. for export. T-87 "black eagle" 2017 for the sake of "Armata" closed. 95 years have passed! Neither Armata, nor T-2010. But 12 pieces of T-95M. T-200b90m -72-3 pcs. subtract 850 pcs. MLRS "KAMA" 900 in two models, an analogue of a chimera - ruined. Hurricane-500M 2009 - enters the troops! 1-2016 units are also an analogue of Chimers - not put into production. . The army was stripped in 2021 years with GDP and Shoigu

    Again, a car without the main link, the engine. Semifinished. How many years already?

      No matter how it turned out that the allocated money for “product 30” was cut in half! They have been making an engine for 10 years!? Americans make the latest engine in 5 years from project to series. And we swung at 13 years
      Full-scale development began in 2011 and bench testing of the engine compressor began in December 2014. The first engine tests were completed in 2016. The new power plant is designed to replace the AL-41F1 with minimal changes to the airframe design.
      The first flight of the engine on the Su-57 prototype took place on December 5, 2017 on the second prototype (T-50-2, board no. 052). However, the pace of engine flight tests was sluggish; originally planned to enter service in the early 2020s, the planned introduction of "item30" was delayed until the mid-2020s. Taken from wiki

    What is the point of the 5th generation of aircraft if it works with high-explosive bombs of the Second World War? The Iranians, who have been under sanctions for years with Su-22s, are firing guided precision bombs at 50 km without entering the air defense zone, and our 4 ++ generation aircraft are hammering with fabs from low altitudes. Just horrendous stuff going on

    The army was stripped in 10 years with GDP and Shoigu

    The army was reduced and "optimized" much earlier, starting with Judas Gorbachev, the tyrant Yeltsin continued with his gang of liberal pro-Western sycophants, and Serdyukov-Taburetkin put an end to it, reducing and disbanding a huge number of important and unique military-industrial complex enterprises, research institutes and design bureaus, higher military schools and universities, and now because of all this we do not have enough modern missiles, ammunition, uniforms and military equipment for our military personnel, they have reduced the size of the army to ridiculous values, which is not a serious crime against our entire country, to break , as they say - do not build, so the liberals tried, they broke our army for the sake of the West for several decades in a row as they wanted.

      You don’t hide your last name, it’s all about Serdyukov! Who appointed Serdyukov, Zubkov’s son-in-law, to a position in the RF Ministry of Defense? Putin himself! Who has been in charge of the Ministry of Defense for 10 years? Shoigu! Deputy Mo for Procurement of Armed Forces Borisov until 2018, Krivoruchenko from the Kalashnikov Concern, Deputy Mo from 2018, Gerasimov General Staff. And Zolotov (Rossgvard) is the former bodyguard of A. Sobchak and VVP

    how much you can keep a new engine for the su 57, very similar to deliberate opposition, which, by the way, is!

    Not a single regiment of full strength on this type yet, but modernization has already begun. Now we need more aircraft, there are excellent samples, so they need to be produced. And this one should be upgraded to full development.

    Maybe it's time to run them around at the front, there is a lot of work for stealth, we have nothing to put against NATO AWACS aircraft ..
