Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57 under attack. So far, the information. Foreign military experts in foreign media and Russian-speaking Israelis, who agree with them in comments on domestic news portals, throw mud at this plane, and some even have the intelligence to write, that "it is not at all". What is behind such information attacks?
Su-57 meets all requirements of the fifth generation fighter: he is inconspicuous, multifunctional, capable of maneuvering under conditions of high G-forces and moving at supersonic cruising speed. It has the ability to interact with unmanned aerial vehicles. In the future, the Su-57 will be able to be controlled by the operator remotely, or even artificial intelligence. Despite a number of identified problems, this is a real technological breakthrough in the domestic military-industrial complex., emigrated to Israel: in the USA the Russian fighter was named "Felon", which translates as "Outlaw", а не «Fake». Yes, the Su-57 crash became an unpleasant image blow, but with the latest military technology, Unfortunately, anything happens. Planes periodically crash, and not only in Russia. Fifth generation fighter has been modified, due to the transfer of missiles inside the fuselage and the installation of radar blockers, the effective dispersion area has decreased, which improved its stealth. May be, F-35 and less visible on radar, but the Russian fighter in the right hands is able to outplay the American due to better maneuverability. The main problem of the Su-57, probably, can be considered not so much some individual technical parameters, how much is its cost. This is a very expensive plane.. The Russian Defense Ministry ordered everything 76 winged machines at a total price of 170 billion rubles. The main way to reduce the cost of production is to increase their series. initially it was assumed, that in a joint project to create a fifth generation fighter (Fifth-Generation Fighter Aircraft) India will participate, which will begin to purchase export modifications of the Su-57. But New Delhi from FGFA left. Now Algeria acts as a potential buyer of the Su-57. This North African country traditionally cooperated in the field of arms with the USSR and now with the Russian Federation. The Algerian army is on a decent 13 place in the world in power, and the Air Force is considered the strongest on the "black continent". The rise in defense spending is clearly linked to events in neighboring Libya. Before the invasion of NATO troops in 2011 year, the military budget of Algeria was 3% from SMR, today officially - 6%, but really, likely, all 9%. He buys T-90S tanks from Russia, SAM S-300 PMU-30 and "Tunguska", anti-tank missiles "Metis" and "Kornet". The Algerian Air Force is mainly represented by the Su-30MKA generation fighters 4+, MiG-29, interceptors MiG-25PDS, Russian-made Su-24M bombers, etc.. Redistribution of spheres of influence began again in neighboring Libya. media reports, that Dmitry Shugaev arrived in Algeria on a visit, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia. Local TV showed an official with a Su-57 model in his hands. This is inevitably suggestive, that the North African country may be interested in increasing its combat capabilities in the fight for air supremacy with fifth generation fighters. Considering the long-term nature of successful cooperation, the obvious choice is in favor of Russia. If it is true, then the domestic military-industrial complex will receive additional orders and will be able to increase the series of the Su-57, which will have a beneficial effect on the cost of their production. Then it is not surprising, that "all-knowing" military experts from the United States and satellites are annoyingly tapping their fingers on the keyboard, belittling the dignity of the Russian fighter and enthusiastically praising the dignity of its "flying iPhone" F-35.
