The article also pointed out that Russia announced the fifth generation fighter F-22 performance indicators and comparable.
German military experts believe that Russia is fully capable of making a stealth fighter. They said that Russian companies is entirely possible to create a low radar cross section of the body. Meanwhile, the radar reflectivity can be reduced with special coatings and materials, you can also make Russia an enemy radar in front of new aircraft completely invisible.
In addition, Russia’s engine manufacturing technology also has a very strong competitive edge, especially, Russia also holds the manufacture of low detectability engine nozzle technology. German experts pointed out that the latest Russian Su-35 fighter-style used on the digital flight control systems and combat management systems. Meanwhile, the machine is equipped with digital active phased array radar also has a high-speed data processing capabilities, is fully capable of the new radar and the United States comparable.

The normal takeoff weight of about 20 tons, between light and heavy Su-27 MiG-29 between. All aircraft carry weapons are placed in the body, to ensure the overall stealth performance. In addition, the aircraft will be equipped with an active phased array radar and a new generation of avionics, control and navigation equipment, pilot helmet targeting system can be selected with the target in the short-range air combat on the U.S. F-35 fighter planes to form “asymmetric advantages.”
