NI simulates the battle of Russian Su-35s against American F-35s

The American magazine The National Interest published an article in which he simulated a battle between a Russian Su-35 multirole fighter and an F-35 fighter-bomber of the US Air Force. Experts believe that the Russian aircraft has an absolute advantage.

As noted, the F-35's only hope is long-range combat, since the aircraft was originally planned as a stealth vehicle equipped with an anti-radar system. Nevertheless, within sight, the aircraft becomes an easy target for the Su-35.

The American fighter-bomber surpasses the Su-35 in maximum speed, but loses in terms of acceleration and maneuverability. As noted, at low speeds the Russian fighter jet has an insurmountable advantage – it has a thrust vector controlled in three dimensions

The authors note that if you imagine a meeting of these two aircraft in the sky, then, most likely, the F-35 will have to seek help.

“How will the four F-35s behave when faced with the four Su-35s? Most likely, she will change course and call F-22 (“Raptor”) and F-15C. However, the United States has few Raptors, and the F-15C is getting smaller, ”the specialist noted.
