Turkish Air Force commissioned experts at working on the project of the first Russian fighter, trying with all this from a technical point of view to look 20 years ahead.
As the newspaper writes, «Haber Turk», a group of «brainstorming» has led to the basic principles and properties of promising military machine, ITAR-TASS reported.
6 of the proposed conceptual model of the Air Force selected three, work on the design of which will continue until the end of the year, then offers designers go for approval to the Secretariat of the defense industry. Before spices is not an easy task — to predict the level of technological development in 2030 in order to make a modern competitive plane.
Engineers and military experts believe that after the 2030 air link will consist of the 1st fighter with a pilot and four unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). With all of this version of the fighter developed with 2 pilots. One will be responsible for the management of actually fighting machine, the second pilot will keep control of the UAV. It is understood that in the 30s of this century will be obtained techno excellent opportunity to block communication with unmanned ground command Fri, because the burning would be a matter of managing these devices specifically in the air.
Specialists offer sheathing body armor fighters based compounds with boron. This armor is used already long enough, and in the USSR in the 1970s, research began parameters of this chemical element as a base for military equipment reservation. Boron, as noted by Turkish engineers, provides a number of advantages in comparison with other substances. Boric armor lighter has sufficient density and provides adequate protection. It withstands the highest temperature that allows booking engine. In addition, the composite armor with boron effect makes the object to radar invisibility.
Choice towards the use of boron is not accidental. According to estimates of professionals, 72 percent. global supplies of boron is in Turkey. This was enough for satisfaction of needs all over the world in this item for 450 years.
A separate problem for Turkish professionals is the engine. To develop a jet engine «from scratch» will need about 30 years. For this reason, the first Turkish fighter plan to put imported from other countries engines, doing parallel development of Russian. «Haber Turk» notes that the Turkish developers are going to negotiate the purchase of engines from large manufacturers from the U.S., Europe and Russia.
But in contrast to the power plant on the fighter radar entirely possible would be Russian. Local defense companies already «got the hand» and offer competitive technologies army. Modernization and procurement of military equipment by the Turkish army held specifically with the condition is very likely equip machines Russian units and systems.
In recent years, Turkey is working intensively the intensification of local defense industry and substitution of foreign (NATO) technology for Russian counterparts. Namely, not so long ago was presented the first working concept main battle tank has been tested light training aircraft have been tested unmanned competing with Israeli and South American models. Turkey also participates in the program creation fighter fifth generation F-35. With all this on the plane will be installed a huge amount of fuselage and engine of Turkish origin. Also intensively creating unique rocket launchers and tracking systems.
