    Very Happy I was talking about suckoy drone being a development concept for a Six generation Fighter.

    The Hunter is a prototype for a stealth ucav...i think its dumb when they call This 6 generation.

    I dont know the Russian generation Fighter will be, but i bet it wont BE subsonic

    OK in this sense I got it thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup
    As for speed Im not sure if fighters flying around earth will have more than 2,5Ma anyway. Too high temperatures dut to air compression.


    I'd say it is testing components of 6th gen:

    a) fully autonomous flight & fight (nothing said about fighter fighting tho)
    b) EW/ beam weapons for attack and self-defense

    I still would love to see Anchar - if its hypersonic is has to fly 40+ kms high is this in category of suborbital bombers then? Smile

    If it is defensive, and part of an air defence network, there is not need for everything to be hypersonic... many of the UCAVs would be cheaper and simpler if they were subsonic.

    With new ground, air, and space based radars Russia is going to end up with pretty good coverage, but the problem is that seeing is not good enough... you need to get weapons to the target and destroy it.

    Now hypersonic interceptors can play a part of that solution, but no every platform needs to be zipping around breaking sound barriers and burning up enormous amounts of fuel... several hundred aircraft with a dozen missiles each orbiting potential targets would be very useful to blunt a mass attack, while hypersonic super planes can go out and attack the launch platforms...

    Besides the 5th gen fighter concept was invented by a US company... why should a Russian company not invent a 6th gen fighter?

    I suspect when the next round of US sanctions get imposed on Russia that Putin will declare all western patents null and void in Russia anyway... Twisted Evil
