    Su-35 vs F-22

    Post  Ives on Thu Nov 23, 2017 4:30 am

    Watched a video about the combat simulation between these two, not long time ago:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZoF7hu0wAI&t=150s

    So, what do you guys think, is the situation really that bad for the Sukhoy or the vid is just another Pro-US BS ?

    marketing statements vs marketing statements - who wins? Don't know cause no one knows what each side is really using and what are the real perimeters.

    Some claims by USA pilots flying F-22 state its a POS and has trouble finding Sukhois. Some others claim its the second coming of Jesus.

    We are here for knowledge and facts. Not youtube video fantasies.

    Very simply the Su-35 and F-22 should be immune to each others medium range AAMs, the Su-35 can carry rather more air to air weapons, is faster and has longer flight range.

    It also has a range of optical and radar sensors for detecting enemy aircraft, including wing mounted L band radar AESA array antennas.

    Even assuming they don't work there are plenty of long wave ground based sensors that would be working with the Flanker to detect the F-22 at long range.

    As the Su-35 approaches the F-22 it will be fired upon with AMRAAMs, but its EW capabilities should protect it from them, just as the R-77s probably wouldn't get a decent lock. The long range IR guided R-27TETs might be interesting as stealth aircraft like the B-2 have been detected using IR sensors.

    Either way it will eventually come down to manouvering and guns and in that case my money is on the Su-35... faster, more weapons, more manouverable, longer flight range.

    Why F-22 should be immune to R-77-1 and R-37M scratch ???

    Not so much immune but resistant to Active radar homing from such a small radar antenna.

    If the Su-35 can have jammer pods that jam AMRAAM then the F-22 should be able to manage the same or equivalent.

    Besides the long range AAMs of the Su-35 will be used to take out all the inflight refuelling tanker aircraft the USAF will rely on to keep their stealth fighters operational in the field and also their AWACS and JSTARS collecting live intel in the field.

    With these force multipliers eliminated NATO will not be in such a good position as it is used to.

    Once they have perfected the IIR seeker on the new short range AAM then a small IIR sensor for long range missiles would be useful.... lock on after launch with a passive sensor means it can look for targets without giving its own position away to easily.... an IR target can then be scanned with the onboard high frequency radar and when a weak or non existent radar return is the result it can assume the target is stealth and worth attacking.... its IR signature can be analysed to ID it.... much the same way Brimstone works with MMW radar signals.

    Resistant? F-22 curently has no equivalent of SAP-518 station. Usually there won't be more than 5 Sentries really, so if every Su-35 will carry like 2-3 R-37Ms in the squadrom, it should be enough to shoot down all AWACS, tankers and at least 1/4 of F-22s.

    Apparently F -22 can detect and defeat the Su 35 at BVR

    It's not a new info that it can detect a su-35 which still has a big rcs even with a frontal reduction.

    Defeat is totally impossible to prove. Modern russian jammers are known to be very capable against AIM-120 and long range missiles are famous for being not that good in general.

    In close fight, a Syrian Su-17 proved to be capable of defeating US last version of IR missiles with flares probably delivered at the soviet times... let alone Su-35 reduced infrared signature with modern flares.

    BTW, this article is an exemple of total pro-us bullshit with 0 proof, 0 argument, 0 exemples ...

    My ass, RUSI is a think tank, which works for the UK government. They will never admit, that westie-made stuff will ever lose. It is almost like asking Russian MoD "Are Russian fighter jets the best in the world?" The answer is more than predictible.

    Wasn't it you telling me, that Su-35 would beat EF with RVV-BD rather easily?

    As the R-77 approaches the F-22 it could use its large AESA array to focus a lot of energy at the rather small seeker of the Russian missile, which might render it less than optimally effective.

    Very few BVR missiles have a PK of more than 40%... especially against a modern capable opponent that knows they are under attack.

    Of course that works both ways.... which leaves a good gun and good old fashioned manouverability... hense my money is on the Flankers.

    Apparently F -22 can detect and defeat the Su 35 at BVR

    Sorry, but that analysis just hurts my head... a high flying Typhoon is going to be killed at 400km range by an S-400.... a high flying Su-35 can use after burner and fly rather faster than the Typhoon when it needs to because it carrys lots of fuel internally.

    Hard to maintain, temperamental, not as sophisticated... all these stereotypes being directed at the Flanker.... its human user interface and avionics are based on 5th gen systems fitted to the PAK FA, so the ability of the Su-35 pilot to operate his aircraft should not be in doubt.

    It completely ignores the Flankers L band wing mounted radars specifically intended to detect stealth aircraft, so the bullcrap about the F-22 pilot seeing the Flanker and the Flanker not seeing the F-22 is just that... BS.

    Amusing that they think they cannot comment on the Gripen because it is an unknown entity, but speculation about pretty much any other type is stereotype solid.

    They didn't mention the L band AESA array the Su-35 has to detect stealth targets at extended range, or the fact that the Su-35 in Russian service will likely be operating with local air support, whereas the Typhoon or F-22 is more likely to be over someone elses back yard doing what it does.

    Equally they never mention that the RVV-BD missile with the domestic designation of R-37M is intended for all new Russian fighters including PAK FA, Su-35, and MiG-35 as well as the MiG-31 is a 300km range AAM intended specifically to destroy JSTARs, AWACS, and inflight refuelling aircraft at extended ranges.

    The Typhoon might supercruise at mach 1.2, but the Flanker can use after burner and fly faster if it needs to.

    The amusing thing is that the Russians are not interested in all stealth, they are going to be making MiG-35s and Su-35s along side their Su-57s and will be operating a combination of both types... the difference is that they will be defending their own air space, whereas the F-22 and Typhoon will be used to create another Libya.

    Since the end of 2016, Su-35S is using R-77-1, not R-77, whereas yankees will deploy AIM-120D only in 2019. R-77-1 has a Ku-band seeker and F-22's radar is X-band, really and also I don't think that F-22's radar has the same output as SAP-518 does. Plus, R-77-1 has both passive and active seeker. Do not forget about R-37M as well.

    Weren't LBand AESA radars only useful for IFF, terrain mapping, and disruption satellite communication?

    Fair enough, but the new missiles are still called MISS iles, not Hitiles...

    With the quality of self defence systems on the new aircraft each is facing the chances are the missiles are more likely to fail than succeed.. which means it comes down to close in fighting and guns and I think the Flanker wins there.... as does the MiG-35 and the Su-57.

    Weren't LBand AESA radars only useful for IFF, terrain mapping, and disruption satellite communication?

    Terrain mapping? They are for detecting stealth objects at extended ranges, but they could also detect datalink traffic too.

    They are not precise enough for tracking stealth objects but can be used to direct IRST and other sensors to look at the stealthy object and reveal its presence.
