France 6th Generation Fighter Jet Shocked The Russia And China

The most important role in this ambitious French-German project will be played by two companies – Dassault Aviation, which created the Rafale, and Airbus. By the way, why has France become the leading player in the program out of all European countries? The fact is that the Fifth Republic is the only European country capable of independently producing modern fighters.

Germany, recall, was deprived of such an opportunity after World War II and built combat aircraft together with Italy and Great Britain. There is also the Swedish Gripen, but its propulsion system is built around American technology.

France has tested a prototype engine for the New Generation Fighter (NGF) that it is developing alongside Germany and Spain as part of the larger Future Combat Air System (FCAS)/Système de Combat Aérien Futur (SCAF).

The new engine was envisioned as one that would have more thrust than the Rafales and the Eurofighter Typhoons so that the new aircraft effectively replaces both these fighter jets in the longer run. High thrust means higher temperature.

A sixth-generation fighter is a conceptualized class of jet fighter aircraft design more advanced than the fifth-generation jet fighters that are currently in service and development. Several countries have announced the development of a sixth-generation aircraft program, including the United States, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, China, and India. The first sixth-generation fighters are expected to enter service in the 2030s.
