F-22 Raptor VS Sukhoi Su-57 (Any guesses?)
How would the F-22 and Su-57 fare in a head to head engagement? The design priorities of the two aircraft give the two aircraft different advantages at different ranges. The Su-57’s priorities and armament lend themselves to detection and elimination of threats at long ranges. Key to this strategy, the Su-57’s radar must be able to detect stealth jets at long ranges. The aircraft’s emphasis on speed allows it to respond quickly or back out quickly from fights it cannot win. Once the two opposing fighters close to visual range however the Su-57’s combination of maneuverability and infra-red search and track will make it a lethal opponent.

Russia’s official designation of the PAK-FA/T-50 jet as the Sukhoi Su-57 is just another reminder that the field of fifth generation fighters is about to get more crowded. The United States, China, Russia, Japan and Korea are all working on their own fifth generation designs, but so far only three planes, the F-22 Raptor , F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the Chinese J-20 are operational. Increased tensions between the United States and NATO on one side and Russia on the other have people wondering: once the Su-57 does become operational, how will it stack up against the F-22 Raptor? The F-22 Raptor started life as a dedicated air superiority fighter in the same vein as the F-15C Eagle, the aircraft it was originally slated to replace. The aircraft was designed and built by Lockheed Martin, which had early experience building the first operational stealth warplane, the F-117A Nighthawk stealth “fighter”. In 1990, the prototype YF-22 fighter engaged in a flyoff with the Northrop YF-23 Black Widow II and won the competition, in large extent due to its emphasis on stealth and maneuverability. Stealth was a foundational feature of the F-22, and the plane’s stealthy profile was in part dictated by simulations done on the Cray supercomputer, an early supercomputer. The F-22 design maximized sensor evasion, with diamond-shaped wings and sharp, faceted surfaces. The speed brake, weapon bay doors and engine exhausts are serrated to minimize the aircraft’s radar signature while the large, vertical, canted tails reduce the fighter’s infrared signature from certain angles. The aircraft’s metallic surfaces are also coated with radar-absorbent materials and paint. read more: https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/stealth-strike-americas-f-22-raptor-vs-russias-new-su-57-who-wins-48617 ► Before Comment , Please connect your tongue to your brain! ► Thumbnail just for Ilustration ► This video is made under fair use policy, also this material is made from public published domain for people with hearing and seeing disability. • Watch more videos: ► Chinese React: US Military Presence on Taiwan? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcqWzUBVySQ&t=32s ► US Navy Tried to Build a Stealth Bomber for Its Aircraft Carriers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCY0OM9XTUc Music by: Ross Bugden https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQKGLOK2FqmVgVwYferltKQ DISCLAIMER: Information, Facts or Opinion expressed in this Video are Presented as Sources and do not reflects views of US Military and hence, US Military is not liable or responsible for the same.
