All you need to know about Sukhoi/HAL FGFA

Sukhoi-HAL FGFAThe Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) being jointly developed by India and Russia will look substantially different for the two countries. While the Russian version will be a single-pilot fighter, the Indian variant will have a twin-seat configuration based on its operational doctrine which calls for greater radius of combat operations. The program is initiated to develop a fifth generation fighter aircraft to fill a role similar to that of Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II, the world’s first fifth-generation fighter jets. With all the hype about Sukhoi/HAL FGFA lately I thought I would have a post on the links to some FGFA related article on the web.

    I say this could be the most serious after thought for the Americans who operates their F22 and soon to be operational F35 Stealth Fighters. Just imagine, Russia and India will know have the capability to build and own their very first stealth fighter of 4.5 generation.. And what are the possible implications to China stealing such technology as well.. This will indeed be a start of new proliferations of Stealth Technology of other countries other than the United States..

      hey jorge…wats up??? :) u know i m an ‘indian’… i need to clarify some of d points dat u mentiond…………….

      Firstly, d Sukhoi/HAL FGFA is not a 4.5 gen fighter but is a 5th one… encomprisses features like thrust vectoring, super cruise, manoevrability, stealth capability, AESA, etc…thus dere is no roubt it is a 5th gen fighter

      Secondly, indian diplomats r not fools dat dey wouldnt ensure such a fact dat deir technology(wid d collboration of russia) doesnt go in wrong hands, particularly her hostile counterparts(read: China). Morevr i think u r seriously undrestimatin d chinese……evn if such a colaboration b/w sino-soviets doesnt occur and d chinese r devoid of such technologies, d chinise would independently develop it more or late. Aftr all dey r a rising super power along wid india

    yo jorge! get your facts strait man! the HAL FGFA is a FIFTH GENERATION fifth, just like the raptor. get that through your head, can you. i know it may be hard for you, but next time make sure you have at least SOME common sense in you post before you submit it.

    Hmm..I bet everybody now is jumping to the stealth aircraft bandwagon eh? Nevermind though, I hope some country will develop an advance radar to knock out Raptor out of the sky soon :) American is always bragging with their expensive toys…wait until we defeat them using cheap weapons!

    Well there you have it. As other countries march on and advance their technology/aircraft, the Obama administration insists on keeping us behind. His plan to limit/halt F-22 production will seriously jeopardize the defense of the USA. Russia, China, and India march on as we passively watch. Where is Ronald Reagan when we need him?
