The Russians are Back

The F-22 and F-35 Killer Finally Captured In Action



Feast your eyes in these detailed videos of the beast that is designed to match-and-crush 5th generation American combat jets. It's the Sukhoi PAK-FA, and it comes loaded with some amazing technology from the other side of the fallen wall.

Traditionally, the then-Soviet-now Russian fighter jets have been feared all over the world. Even their now theoretically outdated units—the MiG-29 Fulcrum and the Su-27 Flanker—are still among the most effective and destructive air combat units in the world. The Sukhoi PAK-FA is here to replace both, and it will take on the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II starting on 2013.

The new plane is derived from two research projects from the late 1980s: The inverted-wing Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut and the delta-wing Mikoyan Project 1.44. The PAK-FA is much more advanced, however, and it incorporates the latest avionics and weapons systems, and everything you could expect in a 5th generation fighter.

The PAK-FA will have both stealth and supercruise abilities, which makes it capable of sustaining supersonic flight without afterburners. It also makes extensive use of composite surfaces to reduce its weight, and it has fully-movable vertical tails instead of conventional rudders. The maximum turning g-load is 11g, with a maximum speed of Mach 2.45 at 45,000 feet, and a 1,184-feet-per-second climbing rate.

Its onboard computer will use artificial intelligence to simplify the life of the pilot (no brain-to-flight-controls interface yet). Like the 5th generation American aircrafts, the Sukhois will network with each other, sharing information about positioning, weaponry, and targets in real time. What's more worrying, however, is that the PKA-FA will use an IRST optical/IR search and track system capable of detecting the heat trail of an F-22 from as far as 25 kilometers away. The F-22, by contrast, doesn't use this system.

Technology is loyal to MONEY not to BORDERS. Keep in mind that there is money to be made by the perception of vulnerabilities.

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

There is one concern with Russian military technologies - will the have the money to produce this plane and keep for themselves, or will they start looking for investors that will donor the funds to build these planes in exchange of the share of production?

Russia has some bad friends from the standpoint of US security.

I gave them 20 years to come back after 1991. They have been ahead of schedule.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Doubt Russia will outsource any (key) production. The risk of exposing their secret technology is too high. Possibly China, but its doubtful.

They will offset the cost by exporting nuclear technology to Russia, NK and Iran among other places.

And before you start, I know they aren't the only ones.

Yeah, but Samal was referring to a country that's not to our liking. India is cool with us.
