The company "Sukhoi" completing preparatory tests of the new functional Su-35 fighter and plans to introduce today's fall plane for municipal joint tests (ICG). Su-35, as well as promising aviation complex tactical aircraft (PAK FA), will ensure the safety of the sky of the Russian Federation in a new century.
According to Interfax-AVN Director of programs from the Su-35, Sukhoi chief designer Igor Demin, "presentation of the aircraft on the ICG can be expected in September or October." According to him, the current time in the flight tests are participating two Su-35 fighter. In step HSI their number will be increased to 6. Third car to be raised in the air in the fourth quarter of this year.
As said Igor Demin, the program of flight tests of the Su-35 provides for the implementation quite a huge number of flights. This is justified by the fact that this machine has very many new systems and assemblies used the most modern aircraft armament.
Earlier it was reported that during the preparatory function tests Su-35 one hundred percent confirmed the claimed properties. Specifically, they obtained the maximum speed at the ground 1,400 km / h at an altitude — 2,500 km / h, the ceiling — 19 thousand meters range target detection in the "air — air" — in excess of 400 km, which is significantly greater than those figure standing in service aircraft.
Su-35 level with the promising aviation complex tactical aircraft (PAK FA) in almost all will determine the level of defense of in the foreseeable future. In accordance with the prisoner in the 2009 municipal contract to supply the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation in the period up to 2015 48 Sou-35 at the company "Sukhoi" in Komsomolsk-on-Amur established mass creation of fighters, the first of which will be completed at the end of this year. Bulk deliveries will begin in 2011.
Technology implemented in the program of the Su-35 will allow a relatively rather short time to partially upgrade the Air Force of the country and quickly master the technique of the next generation.
The company "Sukhoi" is also in talks with foreign customers interested in retooling its own air force. Bulk deliveries of Su-35 is planned for export in 2012 year.
Su-35 — profoundly modernized super-maneuverable functional fighter generation "4 +". It utilizes technology fifth generation, providing an advantage over similar class fighters.
Distinctive features of the aircraft are new avionics suite based on digital information control system integrating avionics systems, brand new radar (radar) with a phased array with long-range detection of air targets with an increased number and immediately followed by a fired targets. The aircraft has new engines with increased thrust and turning thrust vector.
The Su-35 has a broad range of weapons of large, medium and small range. It can carry guided air attack antiRLS, antikorabl general purpose guided aerial bombs, as uncontrolled armament.
Radar visibility fighter aircraft compared with the fourth generation is reduced in a couple of times due to conductive coating cockpit, radar absorbing coatings and coating reduced the number of protruding sensors. Service Life — 6 thousand flight hours, service life — 30 years of operation, the assigned resource engines with controlled nozzle — 4 thousand hours.
