Comparison of F22 VS SU57

Sukhoi Su-57

The Sukhoi Su-57 is a Russian stealth, single-seat, twin-engine jet multirole fighter aircraft designed for air superiority and attack operations.

SU57  have supercruise, stealth, super maneuverability and advanced avionics

The prototype first flew on 29 January 2010

Su57 incorporate substantial amounts of composite materials and possess advanced avionics such as active phased array radar and sensor fusion

In addition, the Su-57 has a blended wing body fuselage and incorporates all-moving horizontal and vertical stabilizers

The vertical stabilizers toe inwards to serve as the aircraft’s airbrake.

The aircraft incorporates thrust vectoring and has adjustable leading edge vortex controllers (LEVCONs) designed to control vortices generated by the leading edge root extensions, and can provide trim and improve high angle of attack behavior, including a quick stall recovery if the thrust vectoring system fails

The advanced flight control system and thrust vectoring nozzles make the aircraft departure resistant and highly maneuverable in both pitch and yaw

Enabling the aircraft to perform very high angles of attack maneuvers such as the Pugachev’s Cobra and the Bell maneuver, along with doing flat rotations with little altitude loss

The aircraft’s high cruising speed and the normal operating altitude is also expected to give it a significant kinematic advantage over prior generations of aircraft.

Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor

The F-22 Raptor is the first fifth-generation fighter

F-22 use low-observation technologies, modern avionics and efficient engines.

A combination of sensor capability, integrated avionics, situational awareness and weapons provides an early death opportunity against threats.

The F-22 Raptor has a sophisticated set of sensors that allows the pilot to track, identify, shoot and kill air-to-air threats before being detected.

Furthermore, Significant advances in cockpit design and sensor fusion improve the pilot’s situational awareness.

In the air-to-air configuration, the Raptor carries six AMRAAM AIM-120 and two Sidewinder AIM-9.

The characteristics of the F-22 provide a synergistic effect ensuring the lethality of the F-22A with most advanced air threats.

In addition, The combination of stealth, integrated avionics and supercruise drastically reduces the ground-to-air missile interaction envelope and minimizes enemy capabilities to track and activate the F-22.

The combination of reduced observability and supercruise accentuates the advantage of surprise in a tactical environment.

The Advanced Tactical Fighter entered the Demonstration and Validation phase in 1986. The aircraft prototype (YF-22 and YF-23) completed its first flights in the late 1990s.

  1. There are no doubt the USA military aviation are the best in the world but the Russian and the Chinese are catching up fast,nevertheless we can’t tell which fighter are better the SU57 or F22 unless we see them in real fight against each other. I believe each one of these fighter are unique on it’s own aspects.
