According to Today Russia television, US Air Force is looking for potential contractors to build simulators for Russia’s Su-57 and China’s J-20 jets.
It’s reported that America want some manufacturer to develop a set of solutions and devices which could imitate opponents’ features in air tests.
Various aspects of the simulators will have to be close to Su-57 and J-20 fighters, including radio transmission, electronic combat and material consumption.
But the simulators would adopt remote control instead of pilot boarding, and one of them should be able to fly at a speed of 0.95 Mach, for at least 30 hours in total.
It’s said that only “less than 300 million US dollars” are budgeted for this project.
