The publication of the Chinese portal Global Times fifth generation fighter called the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II, and the Chinese J-20, but no word about the Russian su-57.
Oriented on the international community to the publication, under the Central Committee of the Communist party of China, referring to the publication in the journal Acta Aeronautica et Astronautica Sinica, cites the opinion of the Deputy Director for science and technology Corporation, Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), the General designer of J-20 Jan Waya.
According to the developer, the concept of supermaneuverability is relevant to fourth generation planes, which are not relevant to the fifth generation fighter. The reason that the expert sees in the advent of modern medium-range missiles of class “air-air”, requiring the player to defeat a potential enemy out of line of sight.
“The information has now become the deciding factor, as modern fighters are focused on getting more information using radars with the AESA [active electronically scanned array antenna array] and chains of the data, and also reduce the ability of adversaries to obtain information, including using stealth technology and electronic countermeasures,” writes Global Times.
The Chinese publication notes that a key condition for successful processing of the obtained with various devices of information is the use of artificial intelligence. According to Veja, pilots should have extensive knowledge and good analytical skills to work with such devices.
According to the designer, the fighter of the fifth generation, in comparison with the fourth generation aircraft require increased range, stealth, emphasis on missile weapons class “air-air” and “air-earth” and providing a pilot light for the vision of the evolving airspace situation, with the ability to predict future scenarios.
“In the integrated system, the aircraft must be able to form a network, show integrated situational picture in real time, to create multiple routes of attack and real-time send the target information through the areas of mission,” writes Global Times, referring to the work of Wei.
The publication, citing its own sources, reported that such decisions used in the fifth generation fighter will be applied to the aircraft of the sixth generation. Global Times writes that the first Chinese aircraft, wherein the engine is used with adaptive cycle and the control of slave drones may appear in 2035.
In July, The Drive, referring to the Chinese press and its sources, suggested that China was able to replace Russian engines for fighter J-20 on its own.
In the same month Matthew Bromberg, President and chief Executive officer of the American Military Engines Pratt & Whitney, in an interview with Aviation Week & Space Technology said that the company developed a programme Adaptive Engine Transition Program (AETP) three-loop engine with adaptive cycle XA101 represents the future of aviation power plants, including military.
In December, 2019 in the publication on the Chinese portal Sohu Russian su-57 was declared as the fighter generation 4+++ (3+++ Chinese version). There’s also stated that “Russian should work harder to avoid being left behind other countries of the world.”
Thus, in China reacted to the incident in the same month the wreck of the su-57, which was to become the first Russian production model of the fifth generation fighter.
