Russian carrier-based aircraft is significantly inferior to the American.
Despite the fact that the Russian heavy aircraft cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov will be put back into operation in the coming years, military journalists have stated that Russian carrier-based aircraft can no longer withstand American F-18 fighters - the latter will destroy Russian fighters long before how they can fly up to the distance of launching missiles.
“The energy potential of the N001K and Zhuk-M radar systems, determined by far from the highest average and peak pulse powers, provides a range of target capture with an EPR of 1.2 square meters. m (target type "F / A-18E / F") of about 70 and 80 km, respectively. Against this background, the crews of the Super Hornets, using the more powerful and more noise-protected AFAR radar AN / APG-79, will be able to take the Su-33 to escort at a distance of 180-200 km and "capture" at a distance of about 150-170 km (due to with an impressive EPR Su-33, reaching 15-18 sq. m) " , - the publication" Military Review ".
In fact, American combat aircraft do not leave a single chance for Russian fighters in long-range combat, however, even if the aerial combat drags on, experts cannot predict the chances of success in close combat between Russian and American carrier-based fighters.
“A way out could be the appearance of a decked version of the Su-57 fighter, but this, obviously, will be possible no sooner than after 7-10 years, that is, when the USA is already radically rearming ,” the analyst notes.
