How do Slavboos feel about the fact that T-50 will be inferior not only to American planes but also to J-20?

I'm so tired of people comparing military aircraft as if it were a dick measuring contest. Bigger, stronger, faster? Who CARES!

These are machines that are part of *systems*. Doctrine, strategy, tactics... I'm so tired of raw analysis of the individual plane's characteristics at the expense of ignoring *everything* else.

Want to know the *real* secret of American air hegemony? Look at the humble AWACS and JSTAR. Look at the thousands of satellites overhead, including the GPS ones that allow the use of JDAMs... finally look at the actual air-planes.

Neither the PAK FA or the J-20 ever had pretensions of being the Russian F-22 or F-35 regardless what the hype or even the Russian propaganda may tell you. These planes are direct descendants of the Su-27 and Mig-29, airplanes that were envisioned as "dumb" (or a lot dumber than NATO counterparts) and (relatively) cheap platforms relying on a strong GCI network.

Even though their avionics has advanced by leaps and bounds compared to the cold war, the primary role for Russian aircraft is still very much air-defense.

J-20 that manages to be a ripoff from MiG-1.44, F-22 and F-35 simultaneously? Astonishing aircraft indeed, truly a peak of gook traditions. I bet in another 20 years they will even manage to build their very own AL-31.

I ripped the T-50 for it's supposed "stealth", but the J-20 is just comical

> moving control canards
> bumps and gaps along leading edges
> lack of parallel edge alignment

And let's not forget the front of the J-20 and the entire J-31 are hilarious F-35 ripoffs while the cockpit of the J-20, including it's HUD, and the shaping of it's lower fuselage, is a blatant attempt to copy the F-22.

Oh, and the Chinese can't even build a working jet engine.

Anyways frontal RCS for "stealth aircraft" is in roughly this hierarchy in terms of order of magnitude:

F-22/B-2: 0.0001 m2 (insect-steel marble)
F-35/F-117: 0.001-0.005 m2 (golf ball-small bird)
Pak Fa/T50: 0.1-1m2
Super hornet, Rafael Typhoon (in clean configuration): 1 m^2
J-20/J-31: 1m^2 at best

No.

You do not have a flight prototype with straight ducts and it suddenly transform into a fighter with S-ducts when it is in production.

It is fundamentally flawed without significant changes to the airframe, changes which would invalidate that 'flight prototype' as actually being useful for such a purpose.
>>
>>27810873
LOL When has Russia ever had a major design change after a prototype was built. That's it buddy, it's a piece of shit that is probably less stealthy than a Rafale.

You're right. It could be a stopgap; knowing 6th gen is coming up soon. Russia has little need for offensive aerial supremacy fighters; they have mostly been centered around air defence.

>Weapons are carried internally in weapons bays within the airframe, and antennas are recessed from the surface of the skin to preserve the aircraft's stealthy shape. The IRST housing is turned backwards when not in use, and its rear is treated with RAM to reduce its radar return. To mask the significant RCS contribution of the engine face, the partial serpentine inlet obscures most, but not all, of the engine's fan and inlet guide-vanes (IGV).

See, I can forgive having straight intakes if it was another prettied up Su-27, but not implementing S-intakes in a clean sheet design?

Okay. Well I was wrong as of Dec 2014 when that articles info came out. Who knows where the Chinese are in November?

I assume the J-10B will be using WS-10's once the WS-10 becomes better than the AL.

Chinese got a lot of problems with engines simply because they are trying to go from, nothing to better than what they can import, in a decade.

Based upon the chatter I hear in china and on Weibo, my bet is the first J-10b's are being fitted with the Ws-10 right about now. Doesn't mean the ws-10 is better, just that it is at least as reliable.

(The chinese hate having planes crash because of unreliable engines for propaganda reasons)

Are you seriously retarded? What the fuck does JSTARS (There's an S, by the way) have to do with air combat? COMM/DLX for air-to-air is handled by AEW&C, and JSTARS only has an SAR, with no air-to-air modes. What exactly do "thousands" (Protip: You're off by an order of magnitude) have to do with air combat besides GPS (Which most other nations have as well #GLONASS/BeiDou)

The actual fighter aircraft and their armaments are still primary. Stealth is unbelievably huge, as are things like MAWS, AESA, and DRFMJ. That's before we even talk about modern missiles with DLX/re-attack. Kindly don't talk out of your ass.

>Except Lockheed Martin stated that the 35 has the RCS of a volleyball.

No they haven't; someone said that they did on f-16.net once and it became a maymay.

The closest thing we have to an official statement on the RCS of the F-35 is General Mike Hostage suggesting that it's smaller than the F-22's

“The F-35 doesn’t have the altitude, doesn’t have the speed [of the F-22], but it can beat the F-22 in stealth.”

Communist lies, it's 0.0000000000001 m2 for F-35.

you know what fuck slavboos and lockheadboos too.

haha its actually the opposite. s-ducts make your plane fatter and therefore draggier- you need to compensate on the engines just to compete aerodynamically, now radar blockers are a smarter man's way of negating fan blades returns- its only real tricky to pull off and only with new tech now can be as effective as s-ducts.

jesus fcking christ learn to read- it basically means the su-35s serves also as testbed for pak-fa technologies, not other way around.

also s-ducts are not the only way to hide fan blade returns. check out keypubs joasakura dude post of russian patents and basically explained how radar blockers could be as good if not better than s-ducts

Not being seen is better than evading better - and the F-22 is still the best maneuver fighter in the world even with those "drawbacks."

Slavs stopped in the 70s although you could call the buran a copy of sorts even if it works completly differently.

Good comparison actually

Had an unclassified brief from F-22 pilots today. Something they noted is how unbelievable for them it was when they were at 10k feet and their jet was accelerating at 9.5Gs... so they had to pull the throttle back. Not only do they have insane nose-pointing capability due to thrust vectoring in the post-stall environment but their dogfighting capabilities are also unrivaled. Not that they need any of that shit, since they will pick off 8 jets a piece without being detected from BVR

I have a friend who flew both F-22 and J-20, he said on paper the F-22 is superior but in reality the J-20 is better. He is also known for giving good information to Dr. Carlo Kopp.

the fucking space shuttle only accelerates at 2gs

"sprey being right about Canada

Trudeau is going to buy the F35 after it wins the competition.

> moving control canards
Just because they CAN move doesn't mean they HAVE to move. The Eurofighter already implements a fixed, low-RCS canard position for cruise, and only deflects the canards during maneuvering or landing. The rest is done with elevons. (note, in your photo the J-20 is in landing configuration.)
> bumps and gaps along leading edges
Again, the J-20 is in landing configuration. Slats are deployed, and both flaps and canards are deflected for additional lift. None of this would be the case in cruise.

Honestly, if I had to choose something to pick on about the J-20, it'd be the nozzles. But whatever.

Accelerating while pulling 9.5Gs you moron. Yes the English wasn't perfect but I would think people aren't retarded and use common sense for what it meant.

not it's underpowered engines?

I've basically heard the same for the T-50 and it's movable LERX/LEVCONs. Supposedly they could be moved down to further block the engine inlet

Having "only" 187 F-22s seems disappointing but at the same time the F-15C/D can still wipe the floor with virtually any aircraft in existence. The F-22 is like the icing on the cake, really.

Also, the notion that russia will "mass produce" the T-50 is pretty laughable. Russia was supposed to build 52 of them by 2020 but the order got slashed to 12 because the Russian economy is pretty terrible and the Russian government is prioritizing upgrading its 4th gen fighters rather than making new ones. I think someone already mentioned that there are more F-35's in existence than T-50's and Su-35's combined.

Assuming the T-50 doesn't get cancelled after it's first production run, which is quite possible, the earliest it's going to enter widespread service and be available for export is the late 2020's or 2030's. By that time the USAF's F-X (F-22 replacement) and USN's FA-XX (F-18 replacement) will likely already be in service. So instead of competing against the f-22, which the T-50 is inferior to by a wide margin, the T-50 will have to compete against it's replacement. It would be like an M46 Patton trying to compete with a T-72.

Consider this: The F-22 first flew 18 years ago. The YF-22 first flew 25 years ago. The T-50 prototype first flew in 2010, only 5 years ago. So Russian fighter tech at best is 20 years behind.
