Man its behind looks huge. The whole thing is a monster actually. I was expecting more detailed pics and videos though. Russkies don't want to reveal much.

There seems to be enough space between the intakes. Though couldn't make our clearly from the video if the space was empty or not. And this is the first prototype. The final production variant might be different.

Take an MKI and sit on it. Result - a flattened airframe called PAK-FA!

This video is not of today's flight.

This is the taxiing trials of the end of Dec.

The plane starts from the ground, does a nose-up then comes to a stop using the airbrake pachutes.

Pretty much on the expected lines just a tad too conservative , Russians used the same Flanker layout i.e. wide spaced engines but still under the wings , engine inlets have rounded edges and same is the case with the radome , nozzles are circular (but this was expected) , canted fins (expected) more importantly smaller as against usual Ru liking for huge fins. No bubble canopy . The bulbous spine between the two nozzles is pretty huge . I guess now that 0.5 msq RCS figure sounds reasonable . :wink:

Those engines are not stealthy at all, damn ! are these the real engines or is the PAK-FA going to change it's engines in the near future?

very nice and mean looking ... Seems like the video is from taxi runs - But surprised that eventhough there seems to some people standing to watch the plane, nothing has appeared on internet before today!

But Huraaaah is due for the ruskies - savor the moment guys, something like this happens once in 10 - 20 years.

The design looks like developed for all round performance and not specifically to be a golf ball stealth F-22'ish , but this is just a first prototype and one might see further refinements.

I am sure the first flight will be testing the over fundamentals of the basic design.

The engines will change to 5th gen AL-41F1 with ~ 17.5 T of thrust ( ~ 155kN ) but with round 3D nozzle , the current engine is 117 ~ 14.5T of thrust

sure thing. but at least....something. And yes, very similiar to Black Widow II - but only from side.

I think the engine inlets have weapons bays behind them. the engines are closer together fed by s-shaped ducts from the inlets. and there should be a large bay between the inlets.

a F22 nose and MKI hinds
front looks very similar to the s-37 rather than the f-22.

I am slightly disappointed.
RCS will definitely be larger and it will loose in a confrontation with F-22 or F-35.
Atleast the Indian version the FGFA should be coated with Radar Absorbing materials and use composites heavily. Otherwise PAK-FA cannot be categorized as a stealth aircraft.

I think they have consciously traded off stealth with reduced manufacturing costs and aerodynamics.
The good news is
A squadron of PAK-FA can take on the entire Pakistan Air Force and come out trumps :evil:

I just hope the MCA project is a truly stealth plane and not a compromise

congrats sir, you have determined RCS just by looking at a grainy picture when it takes days of intense studies at dedicated facilities for scientists who do this job for a living ! :lol:

Higher the emphasis on stealth and building aircraft with extreme emphasis on stealth and fine tolerance in building it higher will it cost you not just to build it but to maintain it on field condition without compromising its RCS.

The USAF lost the F-22 race not because it was not a fine stealth aircraft but because it was not affordable.

Bottom line is one needs an affordable all round performer( flying qualities,stealth,avionics,weapons ) and not a super stealth design.

Sukhoi Press Release ::

Sukhoi LAUNCHES Flight tests Prospective COMPLEX Frontal Aviation (PAK FA)

Moscow, January 29. Today in Komsomolsk - on - Amur hosted the first flight of an experienced aviation complex of the fifth generation. The plane was piloted honored test pilot Sergei Bogdan Russia. Prototype PAK FA spent 47 minutes in the air and landed on the runway of the factory airfield.

The flight was successful, in full accordance with the flight plan. "During the flight we had a primary assessment of controllability of the aircraft, engine and major systems, the aircraft made a full-time cleaning and landing gear. The aircraft proved itself well in all phases of our intended flight program. They easily and comfortably manage ", - said Sergey Bogdan.

Compared with previous generations of fighters, PAK FA has several unique features, combining the functions of attack aircraft and fighter.

Fifth generation fighter aircraft equipped with a fundamentally new avionics, the integrating function of e-pilot, and promising radar with a phased antenna array. This significantly reduces the load on the pilot and allows you to concentrate on the implementation of tactical tasks. On-board equipment of a new aircraft enables the exchange of data in real time as a land-management systems, and within the aviation group.

The use of composite materials and innovative technology, aerodynamic design aircraft, measures to reduce the visibility of the engine provides unprecedented low level of radar, optical and infrared visibility.This allows you to significantly improve the combat effectiveness in the work, both by air and ground targets, at any time of day, in simple and adverse weather conditions.

"Today we started a program of flight tests of fifth generation fighter aircraft. This is a great success of Russia's science and engineering thought. For this achievement is worth more than a hundred co-operatives allied enterprises, our strategic partners. PAK FA program displays Russia's aircraft manufacturing and related industries on a qualitatively new technological level. These planes, along with modernized aviation system of the fourth generation will determine the potential of Russian military aircraft in the coming decades. The plans of the Company "Sukhoi" is included and further development of the Program PAK FA, on which we will work with Indian partners. I am confident that our joint project will surpass the Western counterparts by the criterion of cost-effectiveness and will not only strengthen the defensive power of the Air Force of Russia and India, but will take its place in the world market ", - said General Director of JSC" Sukhoi "Mikhail Pogosyan, Commenting on the start of flight testing.

Summary of fifth generation fighter aircraft.

Compared with previous generations of fighters, the fifth generation has several unique features, combining the functions of attack aircraft and fighter.

Fifth generation fighter aircraft equipped with a fundamentally new avionics, the integrating function of the e-pilot, and promising radar with a phased antenna array. This significantly reduces the load on the pilot and allows you to concentrate on the implementation of tactical tasks. On-board equipment of a new aircraft enables the exchange of data in real time as a land-management systems, and within the aviation group.

The use of composite materials and innovative technology, aerodynamic design aircraft, measures to reduce the visibility of the engine provides unprecedented low level of radar, optical and infrared visibility. This allows you to significantly improve the combat effectiveness in the work, both by air and ground targets, at any time of day, in simple and adverse weather conditions. Low visibility, aircraft performance and maneuverability allow to minimize the threat to the pilot, at the expense of the fifth generation fighter aircraft have increased survivability in difficult combat conditions, with the active counter air defense systems. Increased radius of combat use leads to greater autonomy of the fifth generation fighter aircraft in the implementation of the planned combat missions.

Fifth generation fighter aircraft will complement the fleet of modernized aircraft complexes of the fourth generation, as well as to replace the aging fleet of combat aircraft. In the long term availability of the fifth generation aircraft in service will allow customers to optimize and structure of the park, due to repeated increase combat effectiveness and capacity to address a broader range of tasks with a single plane.

Program to create long-term aviation system of the fifth generation is a technological breakthrough in the domestic aircraft industry, which allows to maintain a stable leading position of Russia on the international market of combat aircraft. In the world aviation there is a unique analogue of fifth generation fighter aircraft - is the F-35, a product of Lockheed Martin.

The plans of the Company "Sukhoi" is the further development of the Program to create a fifth generation fighter aircraft and the creation of modification of aircraft with Indian partners. The joint project will surpass the Western equivalent to the criterion of cost-effectiveness and will not only strengthen the defensive power of the Air Force of Russia and India, but will take a worthy place in the world market

Beautiful pics Yury. Keep up the good work.

It already has the primer.
The stealth coating should go in next.

Is the body composites or metal?

I can see the boxy sharp edges of the nosecone and the front of the aircraft. The rest of the plane has a streamlined appearence.

Wonder what the final finish will be like. Are there rivets visible? How smooth is the skin?

don't think it's painted as yet. 2 or possibly 3 coatings of Stealth paint will surely enhance it's looks.
