Concept pics of the PAK. Could be a fake I think. I look at the wiki and it mentions that it would be stealthy.

en.wikipedia.org...

Although there is no reliable information about the PAK FA's specifications yet, it is known from interviews with people in the Russian Air Force that it will be stealthy, have the ability to supercruise, be outfitted with the next generation of air-to-air, air-to-surface, and air-to-ship missiles, and incorporate an AESA radar. The PAK FA will use on her first flights 2 Saturn 117S engines (about 14.5 ton thrust each). The 117S is an advanced version of the AL-31F, but built with the experience gained in the AL-41F program. The AL-41F powered the Mikoyan MFI fighter (Project/Article 1.44). Later versions of the PAK FA will use a completely new engine (17.5 ton thrust each), developed by NPO Saturn or FGUP MMPP Salyut.


If you design a plane based on stealth then it would have to look something like in the pics or the F-22 or the F-35, can't be with curves and so on. So you think a Russian plane with stealth be looking something like this even if this concept is not real?

Oh no!

MFI fighter?! It's bound to come with screws missing and no instructions.

Wether Concept art or private renderings I don't care.
That is one sweet looking plane! Even nicer then the Raptor.

Kinda reminds me of the alien interceptors in Independence Day:

Very Majestic looking aircraft but I doubt the finished product would look anything like that. They are promising a LOT from super cruise to stealth but I fear they wont be able to deliver quite as well on all their promises. The AESA radar itself is going to be a monumental challenge for them. Not to mention decent engines.

Its shocking that the Russians despite being the originators in the study of
"Stealth" have not bothered to replicate the American successes in the same field.

I'm still waiting for them to get a 50% success rate on their new missile.

Yes this is an artists rendering of a possible Pak Fa concept and is nothing to do with Sukhoi.

It is however an extremely attractive looking aircraft that acheives this despite incorporating strong, if modified, elements of the F-22 (intakes, tail), YF-23 (nose profile) and the X-32 (wing, especially in the middle image). All no doubt intended to convey a stealthy appearance, which it does.

Certainly a nice set of drawings. However, I cannot help thinking that "artist impressions" are all that ever comes out of Russia.

I do wonder whether Russia can afford to develop aircraft as being proposed - after all, their GDP is not that big. The Europeans long ago pooled their developent resouces (with the exception of France, of course) and the US are curtailing F22, probably because they don't actually need such a plane and it is rather costly.

Oh, I know people think the US needs F22, but they don't.

There are no real images of the PAK-FA.
Everything that's out there is fan art.
Butt on the upside, they've given us some pretty decent looking concepts to look at.

Russian aircraft are very tough, and that counts a lot for me. I would not want to have to take an F-22 off from a dirt or gravel road.

LOL! I'm sorry i must point out that we're all salivating over a aircraft from the latest Ace combat, fires of liberation. It is the final unlock craft. However there are some modifications, it simply looks like a modded version so do not get your hopes up yet. I cannot remember the name of the plane simply cause my piece of sh*t Xbox 360 scratched the disk. Sorry guys but this is fake by the looks of things

Did you not read the thread then? Almost to a man we said it was not real

BTW - round exhaust nozzles = stealth FAIL
However, it's a very cool looking rendering.

Sheesh, you'd better give the guys working on the F-35 a call then, they seem to have overlooked that!


Obviously just a rendering, but a pretty nice looking one at that!

Isn't the PAK FA supposed to begin flight testing within the next couple of months?

If so, I suppose we'll see what it actually looks like pretty soon.
