Russian media announce development of long-range missile for Su-57
Russian media report that Russia has allegedly created a new long-range cruise missile for the Su-57 in-fuselage placement
The Russian propaganda outlet RIA Novosti wrote about this.
According to propagandists' interlocutors, the allegedly developed missile has a comparable range to those used in long-range aviation on Tu-95MS and Tu-160 strategic bombers, despite its smaller size.
The reduction in size, they say, was achieved thanks to "the refined design of the folding wing and internal layout, as well as the use of a new small-sized two-circuit turbojet engine."
It is stated that long-range air-launched missiles are those capable of hitting a target at a distance of more than 600 kilometers. At the same time, in long-range aviation, the range increases from 1,000 to 6,500 kilometers.
The Su-57 is a fifth-generation supersonic combat jet aircraft that uses stealth technologies and advanced avionics. It is capable of carrying weapons in the internal compartments of the fuselage and can maneuver with heavy overloads.
