Russia conducted an experiment on the application of the “swarm” fighter su-35 under the control of the fifth generation aircraft su-57. About the Agency TASS said two sources in the military-industrial complex.
According to one of them, the experiment was conducted in real combat conditions.
The second interviewee explained that “swarm” or “flock” is called the order of battle, which is a constant information exchange between the fighter and the computer each aircraft automatically handles data with its own sensors and sensors of other boards.
Information about the time and place of the experiment were not disclosed.
Military expert, chief editor of the magazine “Arsenal Fatherland” Victor murakhovski noted the importance of building a unified information system on the battlefield for land, air and space. According to him, the United States has developed a similar system, but so far nobody has been able to build a system of management of all types of troops because of difficulties in establishing a unified data format for the different species and genera of the armed forces.
In December, 2019 in China su-57 refused to consider a fifth generation fighter, referring it to a generation 4+++.
Earlier in the same month, was wrecked su-57, which was to become the first serial fighter accepted into service the Air-space forces of Russia.
By 2028 videoconferencing needs to obtain 76 units of su-57. To date, produced 13 prototypes of the su-57, 10 of which are prototypes for flight testing, and 3 for ground static.
