As for the topic, if tests are to be held in 2007, speculation on serial production is slated for how long thereafter? Numbers to be produced? Who will produce them?


From an aviationnow.com article:


The timetable for the PAK FA is highly ambitious. A draft design of the aircraft is to be established by the end of 2004, with first flight of a prototype in 2006, with production beginning in 2010.

--snip--

THE MOST OBVIOUS CANDIDATE for this is India, which is looking to further develop its own indigenous aerospace industry through strategic linkages with Russia. Sukhoi is producing the Su-30MKI for India, with this derivative of the Flanker also slated for license production in the latter country.

--snip--

Though details of the requirements for the new project are closely held, officials involved attempt to cast the PAK FA as a competitor to the U.S. Joint Strike Fighter rather than the F-22 Raptor. The requirement is believed to call for an aircraft larger than the MiG-29, but smaller than the Su-27. It remains to be determined whether this will be a single- or a twin-engine design.

Serial production numbers, currently, still remain an absolute unknown.

Nice work, though to be fair thats got to be one of the worst hoax pics I have ever seen.

In fact when the thread first started I never believed it was a pic of the next gen fighters as claimed but rather that the outline was so obvious that it might have been the FSW canard wind tunnel models fitted with some sort of protective shroud around the wings and foreplanes so they wouldn't get damaged when in use.

Well, that theory was wrong but still, very poor artwork if it was supposed to convince that it showed a new design.

Maybe, maybe not you really think all of the countries that are in the Stealth club have not develop some type of system to track stealth airplanes? Think about it, if you know the rest of the world will catch up one day then you simply make that technology obsolete and roll out your new systems.



But thats the whole point.. countries which are lagging behind can't just afford to "catch" up you see.. They need to build something better than what already exists..

Easier said then done, how are they going to build something better when they cant even catch up because they are behind?

I don't understand this post, what do you mean by "Just like the Y/F-23"?

Well just incase, the Y/F-23 was a real aircraft. Yes, these mock ups do look like the Y/F-23, but more like the S-37.

When I first saw the pics, I automattically thought of S-37, I just thought that they filled in the gap between canard and wing and advanced the avionics. Guess not.

Shattered OUT...

Radar systems designed to defeat stealth a/c will not attempt to detect the airframe itself, but like the Australian Jindalee project, will detect the wake turbulence created by the a/c as it moves through the air. This will prove a lot harder to manage than airframe signature reduction itself, as no matter how stealthy your aircraft is, moving through the air at high speed will generate wake turbulence.
