Active Phased Array Radar (AFAR) radar and engines provide the Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57 with combat advantages over the American F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II, as well as the Chinese J-20, TASS military observer Viktor Litovkin believes.
The author recalls that the elements of the Su-57 AFAR radar are located in the front of the fuselage, on the sides of the fighter (X-band) and deflected wing socks (L-band).
“It allows you to see space, both air and ground, for many hundreds of kilometers. There is no such radar on any fifth-generation multi-functional fighter – neither on the F-22, nor on the F-35, nor on the J-20. And the law of air combat is known: the first I saw – the first I shot, then I won, ”the author is sure.
The observer also recalls that, unlike the F-22 Raptor, whose engines received only the vertically controlled nozzle thrust vector, the Su-57 is equipped with power units with all-angular thrust vector turns, which "allows our car to escape from the grace with an elegant maneuver" .
In August, The Aviationist called the Su-57 an unsuccessful clone of the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II, for which, however, a Russian fighter can be a serious danger.
