The Russian military-industrial complex produces high-tech combat aircraft of several generations. The sixth generation fighter can get its own laser air defense system, which allows it to hit targets at a distance of 1.5-2 km.

Fighters of the sixth generation, unlike their predecessors, will receive new opportunities due to advanced characteristics. It's about ultimate stealth by improving stealth technology. Much attention is paid to the efficiency of the aircraft in all flight modes: when moving in space at subsonic speed and up to several Machs. The design of the aircraft should be reshapeable and intelligently coated on the fuselage, planes and tail. It is planned to introduce highly integrated network capabilities and use sensitive sensors. Much attention is paid to the development of optional piloting techniques.
The Russian sixth generation fighter will be equipped with its own air defense system, which will ensure the safe movement of the aircraft in space, taking into account the presence of ground and air weapons to destroy the enemy. In this case, it will be almost impossible to shoot down the fighter. We are talking about the use of a laser installation, which is a directed energy weapon. This system will ensure the successful repelling of attacks by means of air defense and fighters.
The potential of the newest combat installation will be 10-12 reflective strikes, at the same time, experts do not exclude that instead of a laser cannon, they can use microwave weapons, which are currently being tested by the military.
