ZHUKOVSKY /Moscow region/, July 23. /TASS/. The ejection seat, which is being created for the promising long-range aviation complex (PAK DA), will be equipped with a parachute of an increased area. This was announced to TASS at the International Aviation and Space Salon (MAKS) by Sergey Pozdnyakov, CEO of NPP Zvezda.

"Now a parachute of an increased area is being created, because when a large-mass pilot parachutes and lands not at ocean level or zero mark, but at 1000-1500 meters, the fall speed is higher and the dome area is needed more," Pozdnyakov noted.

According to the general director of the enterprise, the production of a prototype parachute is underway. Another feature of the chair will be the program of the ejection control unit, since the car is multi-seat.

In December 2019, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexey Krivoruchko said in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper that the preliminary design of the PAK DA aircraft was approved and PJSC Tupolev began developing working design documentation. In May 2020, TASS sources reported that the production of the first prototype of the new "strategist"had begun.

The promising long-range aviation complex is designed according to the "flying wing"scheme. Technologies and materials that reduce visibility (stealth technology) will be widely used in the design of the machine. The aircraft will be able to carry existing and promising strategic cruise missiles, high-precision aerial bombs, hypersonic weapons, and will be equipped with the latest means of communication and electronic warfare. The car will receive a subsonic flight speed.
