F-22 Raptor Vs Su-30Mki Overview

The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine, stealth fifth-generation fighter aircraft that was specially developed for the United States Air Force (USAF). It was made by the partnership among Lockheed Martin Aeronautics,Boeing Defence and Space & security where Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the prime contractor and made majority of its parts like airframe, weapon system and its final assembly and rest of two are responsible for wings, aft fuselage ,avionics and training system. It took its first flight on 7 September,1997.

Whereas Sukhaoi Su-30MKI is the heavy , all weather , twin finned , long range fighter which introduced in Indian Air force in September 2002.It is the super-manoeurable twinjet air superiority fighter developed by Russia’s Sukhoi and built under icence by Indias Hindustan Aeronautics Limited for the India Air Force.

F-22 Raptor VS Su-30Mki Airframe and Design

F-22 raptor airframe is made from titanium and complex composited . The aft fuselage comprises 67 percent titanium, 22 percent aluminium and 11 percent composite by weight.F-22 makes extensive use of high-strength titanium and composites at 39% and 24% respectively due to withstand with the stresses and heat. The F-22 is highly manoeuverable at both supersonic and subsonic speeds and it is one of the only aircraft that can attain supersonic flights without the use of afterburners.

Wheras The Su-30MKI is a twin engine aircraft. Its airframe is made up of titanium and high-strength aluminium alloys. The fuselage head made of semi-monocoque construction and includes the cockpit, radar compartments and the avionics bay.Su-30Mki aerodynamic configuration is a longitudinal triplane with relaxed stability.The integral aerodynamic configuration combined with thrust vectoring control results in extremely capable maneuverability,taking off and Landing characteristics.

F-22 Raptor Engine VS SU-30MKi Engine

The F-22 will incorporate Pratt & Whitney’s new F119 engine. The F119 is a very high thrust-to-weight ratio engine. It is updated with advanced technologies which includes integrated flight-propulsion controls and two-dimensional, thrust-vectoring engine nozzles. F119 develops more than twice the thrust of current engines under supersonic conditions and also more thrust without using afterburner than any other conventional aircraft that uses afterburner.

Where as The Su-30MKI is powered by two Al-31FP turbojet engines. Its Each engine generates a full after burn thrust of 27,500 pound. The power plant, equipped with thrust vector control, provides a maximum speed of Mach 1.9 in horizontal flight and a rate of climb of 300m/s.The mean time overhaul is reportedly 1000 hours of 3000 hours of its total life span.The Su-30Mki’s engine is added by two plane thrust vectoring nozzles mounted at 32 degrees outward to longitudinal axis of engine and can be deflected +- 15 degree which allows the aircraft to pitch,roll and roll easily.

F-22 Raptor VS SU-30Mki Avionics Suite

F-22 raptor’s avionics and software system is the most advanced ever integrated into an aircraft.it is first aircraft to use integrated avionics which simply means different things to different people. System Design includes Common Integrated processor(CIP),An/APG-77 radar, Best CNI-Communications/Navigations/identifications, Inter/Intra flight data link,power supplies, Electric Warfare(EW) and Avionics Racks.

Whereas In Su-30Mki  Avionics include Laser-optical locator system and Lightening targeting Pod .This fighter is fitted with a satellite navigation system which permits it to make flights in all kinds of weathers and even in nights also. Other navigation includes high accuracy SAGEM Sigma-95 integrated global positioning system and ring laser gyroscope inertial navigation system.

    Dear Apurav,

    You need to work hard on your english. Also do better research on the subjects you are blogging about. The article on Indian Aircraft carrier comparison was filled with factual errors.

    Hope you will do a better work and rewrite that.

      Sorry Buddy
      if you talking about english grammer then I want to tell you that I am just a simple Indian for whom english is a foreign language. But I hope that I have conveyed my message and provide necessary information.

    Error please. It is China’s Sukhoi SU 30Mkk that has range of 3000 km. India’s Sukhoi SU 30Mki has a much higher range of 5000-8000 km.
