I have the nickname of Red Canadian and my desktop backgrounds are of such fighters, so I'd love to help! There are 3 major projects currently being undertaken to my knowledge.

Mikoyan Product 1.42/1.44 MFI: A multifunction aircraft designed to succeed the MiG 29. It is still in prototype stages and will likely not be produced because of cost. Still, it's nice and big. Not sure how many hardpoints it could have but I'm betting it's a lot of ordnance from the pictures. And it's sexy

Mikoyan Product 1.44

Su-47/S-37 Berkut (Golden Eagle): Code-named the S-37 for some time, it has officially been called the Su-47. It is being designed by Sukhoi Aeronautics with a really big twist in the airframe. Its wings are bent forward. Apparently this gives it a whole bunch more maneuverability. THe 360 Thrust Vectoring doesn't hurt either. Another cool thing is that this thing can handle VERY high angles of attack so it can pull out a whole bunch of neato maneuvers, particularly the Cobra. I have yet to see one do a Kulbit, but it'll be cool. People say that its maneuverability is nothing compared to the Raptor could double as septic tanks

Su-47 Berkut

PAK-FA: Still shrouded in a lot of mystery, from what we know it appears to be a Russianized F-22. It is believed to be developed by Sukhoi alongside the Berkut. This program is endangered because of other expenses taking funds. Rumour has it that India and Russia are teaming up to design and build a prototype. Still, nobody's quite sure as to what this thing will take, but remember: if it's Russian its sexier than anything the americans have


These are among a whole bunch of other minor products created around the major ones. I believe the Su-37 was just an inproved Su-35, given Thrust Vectoring and some new avionics... MiG 29 was given 360 degree TV for exports as well. I always thought the Russians had nice sexy planes. Su-35, Mig 29, all very nice planes.

Actually your English is just fine. Come to think of it you're better-spoken in English than many of my friends are
. I can speak French too, if you like.

But anyway, sorry I couldn't giv eyou the info you wanted. I'm very attatched to modern planes and don't know much past the recent bleeded-edge projects.

Some NATO Countries use Soviet fighters

Germany used the Mig 29 from ex EGAF stock but have now been sold to Poland

The CZ, and balkan countries like Hungary, Bulgaria, and Ex WarPac countries who have joined NATO still fly them.
