^^ awesome info on the MKI.

1. Increase the role capability and mission computing performance and hardware first.
2. change the existing phased array to an active one.

ive been following http://paralay.iboards.ru/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=203&st=0&sk=t&sd=a forum from the past 4 months and some interesting stuff has come out from there and recently there were videos of PAK-FAs flat nozzles like these





and now there are a couple of drawings from paralay ... we should watch this site closely 8)

Thanks for the vids and diagram.
Regarding the videos, I have also seen them. IMHO, they are just speculative fan videos. Just look at the creator's profile. He hails from Philippines and gives secretprojects.co.uk as his site. So, its not as if he is a NPO-Saturn employee.

Well, your wish may very well be granted. It was confirmed by NPO-Saturn that they are working on flat exhausts for AL-41. I think that the link was provided by Austin in this very thread.
Also, please do away with sahib. :)

On another note, here is a very nice picture of PAK-FA.

I know that this is PSed but it I found it very beautiful.

It is perspective. It is yet to be prospective.

Perspective(from Latin perspicere, to see through) in the graphic arts, such as drawing, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye. The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:


They are still on the perspective stage.

I had considered prospective too.


So it is a paper plane! :lol: I never seen such forthcoming admission in the title itself. :D :mrgreen:

to carry minimum 2-3 ASMs internally the bay would need to pretty big...a shallow bay like other 5th gens wont do.
perhaps that drives the fat boxy fuselage design than the graceful taper of other types.

So, what is the plan for the tubular rear and bottom? heavy RAM coating? or a reshaped body?

No one reallyknows for sure. Unfortunately the second flying prototype (T-50-4?) is also said to look exactly like the first flying prototype. The only difference being that this one carries more avionics that were being tested on ground prototype till now. The third prototype is supposed to have some differences but that will only take the air next year.

Thank you for this. Good thought about the possible usage.

Some of the places where I disagree with the author is that it is 25 metres long etc. I think the plane is 20 mtrs long and with MTO between 30 -35T

I understand what they are saying with the area ruling. They contend that the plane will have almost a trough starting from the inlet and not changing at all. Canards help a lot and that the J-20 has lifting canards will also make it smoother. But every where that I have read, the trough should settle down smoothly as well. Otherwise the wave drag will obviously be high. It is like the difference when a SUV vs a sedan passing by. The authors don't discuss it at all.

The guys have have come to the same conclusion that I had that this plane is optimized for 1.4 to 1.7 M. However, they feel that this plane is going to do over 2M with Afterburner thrust. How will they achieve it though DSI intakes has not been discussed.

I had not thought of the canards and the Mach cone. It was interesting to read about it.

Austin - thanks. I went on 2 days - business pass on one day and Abdul pass on the next. I picked up a whole lot of mags at AI and am still reading them. My joy has been complicated (but increased) by the arrival of a great issue of Vayu. I am not sure if I have picked up a copy of the one you mention - anyway the pdf is better for me.

Regarding videos - I liked the new ones posted by VinothTN - he has a better camera. So its a new camera for me for the next AI 8)

Flat nozzle is used primarily to control all aspect stealth of the fighter from its rear end and bottom of fuselage when viewed from GBR , The Russian claim they have developed or patented a 2.5D TVC with a flat nozzle ( not a 3 D ) ,in worst case we may see a 2D nozzle like F-22.

The bigger challenge will be to prevent thrust loss with Flat Nozzle , the older experiments revel a thrust loss of 8 to 10 % iirc ,now they claim their goal is to reduce to 2-3 %.

Shiv you mean the fat Vayu copy they were selling out there , yes it has interesting article . I really wanted to meet you and other BR guys at AI , unfortunately i did not bump into any one .... In desperation I started asking few folks with camera if they were from BR , none was +ve ...any ways could just meet Kapil

Just thinking out loud.. Is it possible to make this 2D TVC nozzle rotate about engine axis (3 degrees - up, down, +/- 90 deg clockwise/anticlockwise) for both engines?

That ways we would still possess the shape advantage with 3D vectoring.

^kailash, I was just thinking about the same.++.

I'd would rather go for IR jammer and get that extra 10% thrust. Losing thrust is no no for my thoughts. However, if they invent some other chemistry to reduce IR signature, then it is entirely different matter.

They can think about retractable pods that eject out activated on MAWS, that does jamming and protection work. why thrust loss?

http://translate.googleusercontent.com/ ... EGjiq7isdQ

Komsomolsk-on-Amur hosted the first flight of the second instance of the fifth generation fighter T-50 (prospective Complex Frontal Aviation - PAK FA) said on Wednesday, a source in the military-industrial complex.
«Полет прошел успешно. "The flight was successful. Пилотировал истребитель заслуженный летчик-испытатель России Сергей Богдан. Piloted fighter honored test pilot Sergei Bogdan Russia. Все задачи, намеченные на первый полет, были успешно решены», - сказал источник «Интерфаксу». All tasks scheduled for the first flight have been successfully resolved "- said the source told Interfax. "

По его данным, все системы самолета работали в штатном режиме. According to him, all aircraft systems were working normally.
«Устойчивость и управляемость самолета в воздухе получили хорошую оценку. "Stability and controllability of the aircraft in the air got a good grade. Все системы и двигатель самолета работали безотказно», - подчеркнул источник. All systems and aircraft engine worked flawlessly, "- said the source.

Первый полет истребителя Т-50 пятого поколения состоялся 29 января 2010 года. First flight of fighter T-50 fifth generation took place on Jan. 29, 2010. Т-50 – истребитель пятого поколения тяжелого класса со взлетным весом свыше 30 тонн, средней размерности (примерно соответствующей самолетам Су-27), представляющий собой моноплан с широко разнесенными двигателями и двумя килями, сильно отклоненными наружу от продольной оси. T-50 - fifth-generation fighter heavy class with takeoff weight of more than 30 tons, medium-scale (roughly corresponding to the Su-27), a monoplane with widely spaced engines and two keels, strongly deflected outward from the longitudinal axis. Внешний вид планера спроектирован с использованием технологий геометрической малозаметности «стелс». Appearance of the airframe was designed using stealth technology geometrical "stealth".
Самолет пятого поколения оснащен принципиально новым комплексом авионики и обладает большим внутренним отсеком вооружения. Fifth-generation aircraft is equipped with a fundamentally new avionics and has a large internal weapons bays.
Т-50 может взлетать и садиться, используя участки взлетно-посадочной полосы длиной 300–400 м. Самолет будет развивать скорость до 2,1 тыс. км в час и совершать перелеты на расстояние до 5,5 тыс. км. T-50 can take off and land, using sections of the runway length of 300-400 m. The plane will reach speeds of up to 2,1 thousand km per hour and to make flights over a distance up to 5,5 thousand km. Истребитель также оснащен комплексом дозаправки в воздухе. Fighter is also equipped with a set of in-flight refueling

Now the split inlet could be distributed on top and as well as below thus covering for AoA and cruise (a slim y shaped dual inlets on the horizontal axis).

The second prototype of fifth-generation fighter T-50 successfully completes flight tests

Russian Aviaton » Thursday March 3, 2011 16:00 MSK

Today the second prototype of the fifth-generation Russian fighter T-50 (PAK FA - Prospective Airborne Complex - Frontline Aviation) has performed its first flight in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. According to the company's press service, the jet was piloted by honoured test pilot of Russia Sergey Bogdan.

The duration of flight was 44 minutes; the jet has landed on the factory airfield's runway. The flight has been successfully completed in accordance with flight assignment. Aircraft's systems operation and power plant stability have been evaluated during flight. The jet has shown a good performance on every phase of flight assignment.

The testing of PAK FA is carried out according to an approved program. At present all the preliminary ground and flight work is being completed. Three development prototypes were used for these tests, including bench-top strength tests, fuel system development, etc. PAK FA performed its first flight on January 29th 2010 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

The acceptance tests of flight model have been completed at the end of March. The fighter's first flight model and ground systems stand used for development of equipment and systems during flight testing have been delivered to Sukhoi's flight test base in Zhukovskiy on April 8th. After the completion of necessary preliminary bench testing including strength tests and ground development of the fight model, the preliminary flight testing was started on April 29th. The first prototype performed 36 flights according to flight testing program.

As compared with the previous-generation fighters, PAK FA has some unique features combining functions of fighter and strike-fighter. The fifth-generation jet is equipped with new avionics with integrated function of "electronic pilot" and next-generation radar with phased antenna array. This equipment reduces the pilot's workload and helps him concentrate on tactical objectives.

Aircraft furnishings of the new jet allow real-time data exchange with ground control systems and other aircraft. The use of composites and innovative technologies, jet's airframe configuration and measures on reducing the engine's visibility provide very low level of radar, optical and infrared visibility. Thus the combat effectiveness of the jet is increased when working on air or ground target, in any light and weather conditions.

Austinji,
Please do not hotlink images from imageshack. All we can see is a yellow frog in a icecube. Imageshack seems to be blocking hotlinking to sites that are unregistered with them (or something along those lines).

Abhik,
That spherical glassy thing was there before too. The difference was that it was opaque and painted at that time.
