The Russian Aerospace Forces will receive first units of the Sukhoi T-50 (PAK FA) fifth-generation fighter aircraft in 2017, Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev, the Russian Aerospace Forces commander, said Saturday.

“There are five [T-50 fighters] at the [Russian] Chkalov’s State Flight Testing Center, they are being tested, and beginning in 2017 they will be arriving to our service,” Bondarev told reporters.

I would NOT assume this is IOC yet. However, I'd say within 5 years, possibly as soon as 2019.

I suspect there are some translation issues above.

They had at least two aircraft at Avidarts 16, so they're getting closer to service entry.

I hope these: F-22 Raptor are still far more technically advanced


than, the one's you are mentioning, the Sukhoi T-50 (PAK FA) fifth-generation fighter aircraft



They look very similar, but looks can be deceptive.

I'm sorry...but the PAK FA is a much sexier platform than either the F 35 or...dare I say...the Raptor...

An absolutely beautiful jet...

The top picture you posted is of an SU-35.

It's not nearly as stealthy though, looking at the test aircraft.

Thanks, hmm, I went to google, asked for images of the raptor and this photo came up. Thank I will check into it.

Just checked again, images for the Raptor F22 are all here and identical to the one I posted above, I am not an expert, but seems legit

What images from the link are identical to the one above? By following your original image I was able to pull up a number of articles about the SU35 where they used that specific image and identified it as a SU35.

The F-22 and Su-35 look pretty much nothing alike, except in that they have two tails and two engines. The F-22 has a diamond wing, no wingtip rails, blended inlets, and outward canted tails.

I agree, I must have pulled an incorrect image as you stated, sorry 'bout that. But my other link does capture the Rapture in many settings. Thank for bringing it to my attention. I'll see if I can correct image.

Ummm...I totally agree...what's up with the vertical tail assemblies at this stage in the stealth game...

Tailed aircraft are much easier when you're talking supersonic speeds.

That may be true, but I love this craft and its' stealth.....the B-2
what a beauty.


no tails required.

No tails required because it's a slow speed penetrator. It was never intended to go above Mach 1. As far as the no tails aspect, perhaps some of the more *ahem* electrifying parts of the design have more to do with that.

So this one time, on a B-2....

Ummm...I realize that...my comment was more about the...vertical...tail assembly...which unlike the Raptor has an outward rake of 30 degrees...?

The other feature of the PAK FA I noticed was the leading edge stabilizers/flaps...if that's what they're called...why don't we see those on western craft...and what's the advantage/disadvantage...

After studying images of the Raptor...I almost think I'm seeing those leading edge stabilizers/flaps on the wings...

The F-22 has an outward angle and leading edge flaps. All aircraft have leading edge flaps. It allows for slow flight, like takeoff and landing.
