  • engineers of today CAN create the same greatness as the engineers of the past. talent and knowledge is not the problem Russia (and the ex USSR) have. that isn't the reason why at certain periods or instances they fell behind the US or that their product wasn't as good or better as the American analog. politics and finance are usually the bigger factors that determine whether Russia will be as good or better as the US in their offerings.

      The top looks very similar to F-35 and Chinese J-20.

    • @Furia No it's the other stuff which looks similar to the Russian jet.

      The Chinese J-20 is based on the Mig's 1.44 project, and looks like a cross of that and an F-35. Tell me, which part of the T-50 looks like the F-35?

      The t-50 was designed to be a trainer, and looks dramatically similar to the T-35 Goshawk which entered service in 1991 a full decade plus before the t-50.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-45_Goshawk

      Also the new jet looks more like an amalgamation of the f-35 and the Valkyrie xb-70 test plane from the 1960's. Mostly because of the placement of the engines. Which are very much like the placement of the engines on the F-15.

      I think we're talking about different aircraft. I meant the Sukhoi PAK-FA project, the development designation T-50, not the South Korean trainer.

      I don't understand the F-35 and XB-70 comparison. Why?
      The F-35 and the XB-70 are from different generations of technology, different class aircraft (multi-role fighter under development vs high-mach supersonic strategic bomber of the height of the cold war) having both of them in the same comparison, defeats your argument. If you mean visu More..

  • i heard good things from it, and at least wont suffocate its pilots :p of you test out russian gear with DCS sim, russian tech works well, western tech has standoff, but during topgun games, they cries about making other countries not use some tech during close up dogfight.........like the enemy said it wouldn't use eyesight targeting.............

  • Why do they keep quoting Felgenhauer, he's biased and has a specific agenda. He's the same fool who said that Georgia, with it's NATO-equipped military would win any war against Russia within two weeks. He's a so-called "dissident" with a lot of butt-hurt from Russia, who now works for the Jamestown Foundation.
    It's like quoting Karlo Kopp in an F-35 argument. Biased.

  • wow, that looks just like the f-22. I wonder if they got the design through espionage... It's probably much more likely that some idiot bureaucracy in the American government just handed the plans over in the name of "friendship".

    • @airspoon Espionage is traditional way for Russians, it helps to cut design@engineering costs. If I don't remember entirely wrong Mig-29 radar is pretty much mirror image of F-16 radar. V-8 in some old Soviet army trucks is upside down, Makarov is simplifed Walther PP, PSM pistol pretty direct copy of PPK etc.

    • @jpenna Espionage is a far greater tradition for Americans and the whole West. Especially in the 19th century when Russians had almost no espionnage at all.

      you people have no idea what you're talking about. Mig-29's radar has no similarities to F-16's, the F-16's was always more advanced.

      Regarding the T-50, I'm actually curious, have you actually seen a picture of the two side by side? Can you tell me, where are they similar? Or are you guys just pissed off that Russia's industry hasn't died yet, and is still capable of developing high-performance aircraft?

  • A country actually sees Japan as a threat? Doesn't Japan limit its military to a defensive posture only?

    • @mphatik Anyone thinking that Russian designed it by themselves from scratch is naive. Result may still be very good and shouldn't be under estimated.

    • @jpenna Let's also not forget that the F-35 was desined from the Russian Yak.

    • @Oh, dear!
      It isn't, Lockheed Martin just studied the Yak-141's propulsion system. They paid money, it was fair and square. There are some similarities, but overall they are different.

      @Megadeth
      If it's such a bad try at reverse-engineering, then maybe it's not reverse-engineering?
      You think that the F-22 is the perfect design ever, and is the reference point for all fighters. Well it isn't. It's a great piece of technology (from the early 90's), but these two aircraft have different tasks, More..
