Fighter F-35


The USA confirms that the F-35 is of "Russian origin"

In the USA, the “Russian origin” of the F-35 fighter is recognized

Analytical resource "Task & Purpose" published material, which provides evidence that the Americans were able to build a fifth-generation fighter F-35 due to the fact that they used the Soviet technology base. The National Interest also cites evidence that "Russian DNA" is at the heart of the American fighter jet. At the same time, a specific aircraft is indicated - the Yak-141 fighter. At the same time, it is recognized that the American car is not an exact copy of the Soviet one, however, without the solutions worked out in the Yak-141 with the F-35, little would have happened.

According to TNI's estimates, the Yak-141 fighter was supposed to "close" most of the requests of the Soviet Navy, as well as the USSR armed forces, which existed for airplanes providing quick response. However, due to a number of problems, this program was not completed in the USSR. The fighter for quite a long time was recognized as a secret project. But here ended the "cold war", the Yak-141 began to show at various exhibitions. As a result, American companies simply copied, slightly modifying its take-off and landing system with a rotating engine nozzle.

For two years, from 1995 to 1997, the partnership between the Yakovlev Design Bureau and the Lockheed Martin company continued. The period was quite sufficient to obtain information about technologies and technological solutions, and then the American partners refused to work together with the Russian design bureau.
