Air system dogfight
F-35 vs. F-22 It is easy to compare on paper two fighters from different countries. It is much more challenging to pit against products of the same country
Today we decided to compare the capabilities of two very similar in characteristics and functionality fighter of the largest military forces in the world - the United States and Russia.
There are many models of 4th and 4 ++ generation fighters, and in addition to traditional players in this market such as the United States and Russia, the last decade has given birth to new manufacturers, new models and new trends in the field of aircraft construction.
In the battle of equivalent aircraft carrier formations and groups, the Chinese side suffers significantly large losses, even with the possible use of promising hypersonic anti-ship missiles.
There are currently two aircraft in the world that are significantly different from all the others. These are the Russian 4th generation Su-35 and the American fifth generation F-35 fighter. It is safe to say - they are the top of the top.
The American magazine The National Interest decided to evaluate the capabilities of the Russian Su-35S generation 4 ++ multi-role fighter in an air battle with American aircraft. It turned out extremely interesting.
Experts of the American publication The National Interest compared the Russian Su-35 fighter and the Eurofighter Typhoon, which is in service with NATO countries (Germany, Spain, Austria, Great Britain).
The Americans are watching with interests as the new Chinese J-16 attack fighters in large quantities enter the combat aircraft of the Celestial Empire. In addition, these machines have significant potential for further improvement.
In addition to physical clashes between border detachments, both countries began to actively pull military equipment to the disputed site and transfer aircraft to nearby military airfields.
Perhaps there is no greater rivalry in the air between these two fighters - the American F-16 and the Russian MiG-29. When we talk about them, we have the feeling that they cannot really exist without each other.
As the Su-57 enters serial production in much larger quantities than previously expected, Moscow is making a concerted effort to pitch the fifth-generation fighter to major arms importers including Turkey, India, and China.
The Russians are now developing new air dominance aircraft with a long-range strike capability -- the Su-35 and the Pak FA (frequently called the PAK T-50) – which will pose a significant threat to NATO Europe.
