                Military aircraft of the 6th generation: Russia will create an engine for gaining superiority

                https://vpk.name/news/196408_voennay...oshodstva.html

                Chief specialist of the OKB im. Lyulki, a subsidiary of PJSC Ufa Engine-Building Production Association, Konstantin Kakhovsky, spoke about the construction of a sixth-generation aircraft engine in Russia, BusinessOnline reports.

                Modern military aviation is in fact the main combat force in confronting any rival. Technological progress allows creating multipurpose aircraft, which are capable of solving several strategic tasks during the confrontation with the enemy. For such aircraft, a very high-quality and powerful engine is needed. In this issue, after the collapse of the USSR, Russia had some problems, since many industries remained in the countries of the post-Soviet space. However, the technological base on the achievements of scientists allows Russia to actively develop the sphere of engine building.

                According to the expert in the field of aviation Kakhovsky, Russia has everything necessary to realize an extremely promising project of a power plant of the sixth generation. One of the most important aspects in the appearance of the new engine is a low-profile, flat output device. In addition, the 6th generation involves a change in the technological part. For example, a new afterburner combustion chamber with low hydraulic losses and new principles of flame stabilization will be created.

                This engine will allow the sixth-generation aircraft to outperform their predecessors in terms of maneuverability and movement in a no-load mode. Extremely promising development can be used to equip a long-range interceptor, which must have the fastest speed without the use of afterburner
                .

                  Some information on Mig-35 AESA and R-77M from Swifts of Nile in AFM Oct issue

                  Weapons and systems


                  In terms of combat capability, the EAF MiG-29M/M2s have a major point of difference with the ultimate MiG-35. The Egyptian jets lack the Zhuk-AE active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar,
                  after its manufacturer, Phazotron-NIIR, delayed the launch of quantity production.

                  The Zhuk-AE is an X-band radar that can track up to 30 targets and attack the six highest-priority targets simultaneously.

                  Early versions of the radar were installed and tested on the first MiG-35 prototypes but their demonstrated 87-99-mile (140-160km) target detection range did not meet the needs of the Russian defence ministry. Phazotron-NIIR is currently working on a more powerful variant using a greater number of transmit/receive modules to provide a maximum detection range of 155-174 miles (250-280km).

                  When Egypt ordered its new MiGs, the Zhuk-AE was still under development. Furthermore, the AESA-equipped R-77M air-to-air missile (AAM) with a range of 121 miles (195km) was also unavailable.

                  The MiG-29M/M2s ordered by Egypt were therefore to be provided with less advanced avionics and weapon systems and the alternative Zhuk-MF radar. This is based on the Zhuk-ME as installed
                  on advanced Russian Aerospace Forces and Russian Navy MiG-29s and proven in combat during the Russian military intervention in Syria. The Zhuk-ME has a maximum detection range of 68-75 miles
                  (110-120km) against an airborne target with a radar cross-section of 54sq ft (5m2). As installed in the MiG-29M/M2, the radar provides a genuine beyond-visual-range (BVR) engagement capability using R-77-1 active-radar-homing (AA-12 Adder) AAMs.

                    There must be a mistake.. Zhuk-MF would be a PESA radar as F stands for fazovanny (phased array).. I am not aware of any Zhuk-MFs ever having been operationally tested, I am quite sure that EAF MiGs are using an old school slotted Zhuk-M2E or something along these lines..

                      Not a new thing Msphere.. not all writers familiar or actually tracking designations of Russian radars. But yeah Egyptian MiG's are using family of Zhuk-ME slotted planar array.
                      ---

                      Anyway. Im curious what's the MoD requirement on MiG radar's. I think 120-160 km should be adequate, but i guess. They want like 250 upwards. Nonetheless The N019 form factor (0.68m) would give enough space for about 1614 modules. Using Taylor weighting factor though, only 1227 would be fully transmitting (rest could be in different mode or fully passive). With estimated range of 269 km vs 3 sqm RCS.

                        Yes, looks like they want the increase in range dead on.. I personally think that there is more to AESA than just range, but at the same time I acknowledge that one can happily live with a slotted type for another 20+ years.. If world's major air forces like India are still introducing slotted radars, then they're far from being worthless.. especially if you can re-use most of the back-end for later AESA upgrade.

                          3rd S-400 regiment for the year delivered. Interestingly, the deliveries have been of two-battalion regiments, while the plan from a little while ago was to proceed with three-battalion units. Though, there are news that further battalions maybe sent to some of the recently delivered two-battalion sets deployed in Crimea.
                          According to BMPD numbers, there have been 19 serial regiments delivered so far, which include either 39 or 40 battalions. A pre-serial regiment was delivered in as well, so in total that should be at least 336 TELs to date.

                              Waiting for S-350 still.

                              The fact that KM-SAM appears to proceed so well and this one messed still bothers me.

                                - And when will the supplies of S-350 "Vityaz" start?

                                - In 2017 the state tests of this system are being completed. Now the specialists of the Concern are gaining statistics on combat launches with the interception of real targets in various conditions. Also in the near future, we are completing state tests of three new anti-aircraft guided missiles with active homing heads for equipping the S-350 Vityaz systems and anti-aircraft defense complexes.

                                - How are the tests of the Polimen-Redut marine complex?

                                - To date, a full-scale Polymer-Redut SAM has been deployed on the Admiral Gorshkov's head frigate of the Russian Navy. There are also several corvettes with launchers, location facilities and control systems from this marine complex.

                                "Polymet-Redut" provides for the presence of three types of missiles: small, medium and intermediate range, which are now being successfully tested. These samples are a new generation of missiles with very high maneuverability to defeat the entire spectrum of attacking objects.

                                These rockets are unified with the S-350 "Vityaz" SAM.

                                    i got some questions :
                                    1- did the russians field the R-74M2 yet ? and does anyone has that image that speaks about russians producing IIR seekers?
                                    2-how good is that missile vs Aim-9X block II?
