So here is the new Sukhoi that will be displayed at MAKS-2021. ?

United Aircraft Corporation released a video saying that they will unveil a new military aircraft at MAKS 2021. Presumably, this is the single-engine 5th-generation fighter from Sukhoi that was mentioned in May.

Russian single seater 5th gen tipped to be Russia's Answer to the F-35

For so many people claiming that stealth is not all that effective, there sure are a lot of countries building stealth aircraft.

Aha sure right, i think it was the Russians first and the Russian fanboys

And remember the Russians first said the F-35 was a turkey, well why copy a Turkey

Only problem Russian and China have is their sensors are not going to be anywhere near that of the F-35

The Soviets developed a formula that allows the calculation of the RCS of a multi faceted aircraft. They didn't build any operational stealth aircraft until the Su-57. That formula allowed Lockheed to develop Have Blue, which was further developed into the F-117. That was the first operational stealth aircraft anywhere in the world.

That tends to make Russians think that they know more about stealth than others. And you want bad, mention the F-117 around any Serbian.

why is planes and soldiers still a thing in 2021, I would think drones and LRM would be enough.

Because, contrary to popular opinion, UAVs and long range missiles aren't the be all, end all claimed. UAVs aren't ready to dogfight yet, despite having recently having the alpha dogfight trials, and long range missiles can be detected and stopped still. They're much harder to stop, but they can be stopped.

They'll act as mother ships and relays

Why did they blindfold it? Is it a secret to where it is going?

Also looks stealthy!

No, they aren't. They're still years away from even the demonstration phase of a real dogfight using UAVs. The Alpha Dogfight program won't even start their AIs flying real, low cost aircraft until next year or 2024. And that's just for the "this is an aircraft" phase of the program. They'll still have to learn their limits, and a lot of other things, so it'll be another two or three years before we see the actual aircraft fighting, like we did with the simulations. Loyal Wingman, which the Grom is, is still years away from anything but simulated tests. The Grom UAV that was shown at Russian-Army 2020 was a mockup.

It is the best stealth tech there is.

Russia has earned their technical expertise, just like the US. Much respect to their platforms.

I'll take Russian over Chinese any day.
