The stealth photos of the Sukhoi Pak Fa jet in action show the stunning beauty of one of the deadliest planes in Russian.

Think you'll find that these are cgi or artist's impressions rather than photo's? some of the text on that page refers to them as "sketches"

Yup, those images sure are CG made by Aleksander Dultsev.

Those are artist's renderings. And it's being discussed here:

The images show 3 different aircraft. The first with air intakes on the top, seems to be a "sovietized" YF-23 Black Widow II. The second with forward-swept wings is a sleeker Sukhoi S-47 Berkut. The third with the airbrake up and intakes under the wing looks like a sovietized F-22 Raptor. The final one is closest to the actual T-50 airframe as currently proposed.

these aircraft are not stealthy...they are going to have a big IR signature.

Think about it when you look at these photos.

Hi Orange Tom,

Obviously you don't know what stealthy is.

Stealth in aircraft mainly refers to carbon fiber exteriour skins, with kevlar fuel tanks and fiberglass mixed in. Those particular cloths absorb radar signals instead of reflecting them. The specific angles also reduce radar signatures and hide heat and light signatures that might be detected.
