5th generation fighter: that selects India?

The fifth generation fighter: that selects India?Development fighter fifth generation has become a major topic of cooperation between Russia and India. Joint creation of the new aircraft, which was discussed during a visit to India nedavneshnego Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, raises many questions, and that is — what kind of fighter fifth generation it is, because in Russia is already flying the first prototype, T50 made in the framework of the PAK FA?

Fighter 5th generation than on, the more confident is some emblem of owning their own, independent aviation industry capable of producing military aircraft. On this day the world's only such aircraft owned by the U.S., which is in service with the F-22 and F-tests pass 35, and our homeland, experiencing the T-50.

India, which is intensively developing its aviation industry is also trying to get his car in this class. Together with the development of this aircraft order from scratch now fairly impossible for the Indian industry, and the main factor here is to divide the cooperation with Russia, which, in turn, is in need of monetary support to complete the development of its own fighters.

The fifth generation fighter: that selects India?

T-50 is already a lot of spices called a very promising platform, which can be the basis for the branched family of combat aircraft, similar to the way it was prior development of Sukhoi — T-10, which spawned the thick trees of the Su-27 and its modifications.

In contrast to this high-quality T-50 from the F-22 — South American fighter, became the world's first serial warplane fifth generation has been very expensive in order to be popular, but the technical prepyadstviya, inevitable for pervoprohodchika, together with the political constraints (export F-22 is prohibited by law) ruled out the possibility of development of the system.

2nd South American machine the last generation — F-35, in the current time passing tests neuvvyazkami faces a different kind: the United States tried to make a "cheap fighter" fifth generation which would have the same abilities, and more than that expensive F-22, but in some truncated form — the smallest ammunition, several smallest range and speed of flight, the lowest power radars, etc..

In practice, these requirements to cooperate in the same car was very difficult.

Price promising fighters tipped the scales at 150 million dollars, more than twice surpassing the original estimate, and has not yet shown a downward trend, and the ability to achieve a number of F-22, namely besforsazhny supersonic speed on the F-35 has not yet succeeded.

The situation worsened that on the basis of the F-35 its creators tried to build three different cars — "conventional" fighter for the Air Force, deck plane for the U.S. Navy and plane non-long-off and vertical landing for the Marine Corps and Navy countries allies. In the end, the implementation of programs from delayed and the price rises.

Against this background programm T-50, have already been developed taking into account the experience of the creation of the famous F-22 and an eye on the F-35 looks closer to reality. Russian designers do not have to harness in one carriage "horse and quivering doe" and went on to have tested ways of creation of the heavy multipurpose machine, and all of this with enough supplies of strength.

Developed for the T-50 engines, avionics and weapons to ensure success applets, even in this case, if what some of the parts "be late": in each of these areas there is a duplicate version.

Logically, the Russian machine was specifically chosen as the layout for Indian programs from FGFA — Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft. At this point, when the T-50 is already flying and pass the tests "without comment," Our homeland and India may sign an agreement to develop the aircraft at its base, being confident in the success of promising applets.
