Not even under China: the engines of the Russian Su-35 and Su-57 cannot be copied

Russian designers have created engines that can not be copied.

Russian fighters Su-35 and Su-57 are the most maneuverable aircraft in history, aided mainly by their engines. It is for this reason that the Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of China chose to buy Russian combat aircraft, which could later be used to improve its own fighters and to copy unique engines. However, as it became known, the Russian engines from the Su-35 and Su-57 fighters cannot be copied, which created a lot of problems for the PRC.

Earlier, there were serious concerns that having put into service with the Chinese People's Republic the Russian Su-35 fighters, and today the Chinese Air Force has 24 combat aircraft of this model, scientists from China will be able to disassemble power plants and start their own production, thereby depriving the Russian combat aircraft of any perspectivity. However, it turned out that the engines for exported combat aircraft have one important difference - they cannot be disassembled into components without being destroyed, and even if specialists from other countries decide to take this desperate step, the likelihood that the broken components can be copied and assembled in a single power unit, extremely small.

Analysts do not exclude that this technology has been introduced in other Russian weapons, in particular, we are talking about the same Triumph C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.
