- Same range as MiG-29
So they claim, but lets see what actual performance they get first.
- Thrust vectored nozzle that greatly eases takeoff
MiG-29KR can be fitted with 3D TVC nozzles.
- Compact size, especially width
To get any benefit of commonality it will actually need to use Su-57s wings which are not compact and do not existing in a folding configuration yet.
Developing folding wings for both the Su-75 and Su-57 would be a useful thing though.
- Brand new aircraft without compromises in sensor department
Meaningless... any sensor you can fit to this new plane you can also fit into existing planes like the Su-33 or MiG-29KR.
- Low observability
Not sure that is going to be that critical at sea.
Long story short, 4 gen aircraft will soon have no place on Kuznetzov, Navy is about to score
A naval version is quite some way away.
Anything based on the Mig 1.44 is too big
What? That does not make sense. The Su-75 is based on the Su-57... is it too big too?
It has one engine so it needs to be half the weight and drag for the concept to work, but in the same sense this new MiG is a scaled down MiG- 1.44 so it wont be using the same engines as the Su-57 either... it will more likely be using improved Klimovs and they were talking about 12 ton thrust engines... two of those offering 24 tons of thrust for a plane similar in size to a MiG-35... much like the Su-75 will be a similar size but with rather less thrust.
The new MiG will have rather more installed thrust... a compromise of course that that is what aircraft design is all about.
Su-57s have better stuff to do than to sit around as deck decorations
They could operate from shore bases too.
They have 33s and 29s, if they really get a new plane boner down the road there's LTS for that
The combination of bigger and smaller aircraft is just as valid for the Navy as it is for the Air Force. Having a couple of big fighters to expand reach and endurance, while also having smaller aircraft to increase total available numbers and reduce operational costs makes sense.
Its clearly based off MiG 1.44 minimally tarted up with some 'stealth' angles.
A twin engined Sujkhoi LTS with Canards... yeah it is terrible...
