The UAC said that the Su-57 can take on some of the functions of the pilot.
Including-training of weapons
MOSCOW, September 2. /tass/. Intellectualization of the systems of the fifth-generation Su-57 combat aircraft allows it to take on some of the functions of a pilot, including piloting and preparing for the use of weapons. This was stated during a lecture tour by Yuri Slyusar, General Director of UAC (United Aircraft Corporation, part of Rostec), as part of the Znanie marathon.
"Another feature that will become more and more significant over time, which will determine the face of not only fifth-generation aircraft, but also subsequent generations , is, of course, high intellectualization of the board, high automation. In fact, the plane [Su-57] is such a "co-pilot" along with the computer that stands on it, which allows the pilot to focus on performing critical functions. The plane takes over piloting, preparing for the use of weapons, and so on, " he said.
As Alexander added during the tour (last name is not given-approx. TASS), an employee of the Sukhoi Design Bureau, the Su-57 is distinguished from the previous generation of aircraft by the ability to maintain high speed when performing tasks. "If a fourth-generation aircraft lives at subsonic speed most of the time and goes out to perform specific combat missions at supersonic flight speed, then this aircraft is designed for most of its 'life' at supersonic flight speeds, "he said. According to the representative of the Design Bureau, there are no analogues of the Su-57 in Russia, and there are a limited number of them in the world. At the same time, he stressed, the Su-57 is currently undergoing changes, acquiring new properties.
The Su-57 is designed to destroy all types of air, ground and surface targets. The aircraft has supersonic cruising speed, in-fuselage armament, radio-absorbing coating (stealth technology), as well as the latest complex of avionics.
The test pilot said that the Su-57 fighter allows you to "do everything in the air"

MOSCOW, September 2. /tass/. The capabilities of the fifth-generation Su-57 fighter make it possible to "do everything in the air". This was stated by a test pilot of the Sukhoi Design Bureau (part of the UAC of Rostec State Corporation). Raphael Suleymanov on Friday during a lecture tour within the framework of the "Knowledge" marathon.
"Piloting this aircraft is very pleasant and comfortable. It allows you to perform everything in the air. These capabilities, coupled with powerful weapons that allow you to perform tasks both in the air and on the ground, in all weather conditions, day and night, in all latitudes, make it a very powerful weapon in the hands of pilots," said the test pilot.
Suleymanov also noted that the generations of Su aircraft are very similar to each other. Pilots who fly the Su-35 will be able to fly the fifth-generation fighter without difficulty.
Sixth-generation aircraft will be combined with unmanned and ground-based systems
UAC General Director Yuri Slyusar said that the Su-57 fighter is a step towards the sixth generation of aircraft, on the basis of which this family can be developed.
MOSCOW, September 2. /tass/. The sixth-generation combat aircraft will be a network-centric system linked to drones, space and ground-based systems. This was stated during a lecture tour by Yuri Slyusar, General Director of UAC (United Aircraft Corporation, part of Rostec), as part of the Znanie marathon.
"When we talk about the sixth generation, we say that this is no longer a separate aircraft, < ... > but a whole system of interaction between air, space, land, drones, manned vehicles," he said.
According to the head of the UAC, the Su-57 fighter is a step in the direction of sixth-generation aircraft, on the basis of which this family can be developed.
