And like Su-34 it would be available in large numbers and easy to maintain thanks to sharing supply chain with aircraft that's already widely in use
The existence of the Su-34 and its design features were constrained by the existence of the Su-25 CAS aircraft and light strike aircraft, and the Tu-22M3 heavy strike aircraft above it.
The Su-34 was specifically designed to replace the Su-24 which gives you a speed and payload weight and flight range set of specifications.
I would think that an Su-57 type would be similarly bordered with the PAK DA defining the heavy payload and long range of a proper stealth theatre bomber... so it does not need super long range or super heavy payload... I would think new generation hypersonic manouvering weapons will evade enemy air defences and hit rather hard and rather accurately so I actually think rather than carrying more than the Su-34, it would most likely be carrying rather less, but potentially in a large bay that allows heavy individual weapons to be carried like 1,500kg weapons perhaps.
Really big weapons or large volumes of weapons or standoff glide weapons or just long range missiles would be carried by PAK DA instead I suspect.
There was a lot of artwork during the 1990s of the S-60 that often ended up looking like a cross between an Su-34 and a Tu-22M3 as a Tu-22M3 replacement... but we now expect the flying wing subsonic PAK DA will be doing that job.
An Su-57 based Su-34 should in theory be called Su-44 because it is the next iteration in the 24/34 family of strike aircraft, though the 24 was contemporary to the 27 and the 34 was contemporary to the 35 so with the current model being the Su-57 perhaps Su-54 would be the best choice.
Seek and yea shall find...
Looks rather good actually... the replacement for canards with levicons makes sense and the need for horizontal tail surfaces on a strike aircraft is not a high priority... especially with thrust vectoring nozzles anyway...
I would probably shift the engines rather further apart to make space for a large central weapons bay... you could probably have a command version that acts like the Su-30 with Su-35 avionics... sort of a mini AWACS platform with lots of missiles and two seats but also toilet and food for long missions at not particularly high speeds over Arctic waters looking for enemy fighters and bombers and cruise missiles... with a huge AESA radar in the nose and nose sides and enlarged wing roots.
Plus if they manage to fit Kinzhal on Su-34s it will make them even more valuable
I would hope by then a high performance missile of much more suitable size and shape could be developed for such aircraft...
With all that payload surely its getting close to some of the roles of a Tu-22M.
Such payloads internally would either require a much bigger plane which would make it too much like the PAK DA and therefore redundant, or they would need to carry them externally or use upwardly firing internal bays...
I honestly foresee a Su-62/64 taking the drone control 'loyal wingman' concept further than a Su-57. Take the enlarged cabin on a Su-34 and stretch it out a bit, add an additional 4 (or perhaps 6) crew members and allow them 4-6 S-70/drone command consoles. The chairs on the Su-62/64 should be enhanced so instead of having separate sleeping quarters, they could rotate, flatten, stretch and widen their chairs in to beds. The stretched cabin should allow greater weapons bay depth. The greater focus on the penetration/strike-bomber could justify having above fuselage jet engine air ducts to allow greater freedom/flexibility and use of internal weapons bay design.
Honestly I would think an Il-114 or Il-112 would probably be better for controlling drones like that.
Or at the other end of the scale Il-96M.
Besides there are smaller missiles than Tsirkon
They are making new weapons optimised for Su-57s internal weapons bay... an enlarged bay should therefore be able to take rather more weapons, as perhaps could the internal weapons bays of existing and new bombers... Tu-22M3M, Tu-160, PAK DA...
Actually 2 or 3 of them to replace 1 Tu-22M more or less
They would be replacing any Su-24s still in use and then Su-34s.
The Tu-22m3 will be replaced by the PAK DA...
