Did you see the last photo of the trainer i posted?^^Why does trainers need RCS test?. They are not going to participate in combat.
In some other forums they claim it as a PAKFA snippet.Did you see the last photo of the trainer i posted?
If you look at the south korean Trainer T-50 Golden Eagle, it is now becoming a light Fighter/Attack plane, and is going to be quite comparable in specs with LCA or FC-1/JF-17.
Anyways, just a guess, its perhaps just another tin model.
People keep on quoting this plane as a Russian 5th generation fighter aimed at the American Fifth generation project (F-22).The prototype of MiG’s defunct fifth-generation fighter program finally had a debut of sorts at the MAKS 2009 air show being held at Zhukovsky on the outskirts of Moscow.
The prototype aircraft, known as the 1.44, however, was not on the flight line, but was visible parked on the MiG hardstand area, along with some MiG-29 Fulcrums.
The 1.44 was developed to meet the Russian air force’s multi-role frontal fighter (MFI) requirement. It was crippled partly by the ambition of the project, but mainly by the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The MFI program has been succeeded by the air force’s PAK FA requirement, for which Sukhoi is developing the T-50. Three T-50 airframes are now at varying stages of final assembly, with a first flight still anticipated before the end of the year.
