The engine exhausts are not stealthed. Could be a major flaw when it comes to reducing RCS.

If you look at the PAKFA's counterpart, the F-22, the exhausts are narrowed so as to reduce heat signature.

1. Sukhoi is suddenly coy about the prospects for the first flight of the T-50 demonstrator by end-year. It was only a few months ago that Sukhoi CEO Mikhail Pogosyan confidently predicted the PAK-FA demonstrator would fly before 2010. Asked about that prediction today, he told reporters that Sukhoi would have more information about first flight at the Farnborough air show next July.


delayed - Postponed again.................

Random 5: Paris Air Show Day 1 - The DEW Line
--------------------

June 15, 2009, (Sawf News) - The Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) being developed by Russia with some Indian financing is unlikely to take to the air by the end of this year as projected earlier, reports Flight Magazine.

Referring to earlier reports that the first demonstrator will fly before the end of 2009, with serial production starting by 2010, Sukhoi CEO Mikhail Pogosyan played coy on the opening day of Paris Air Show, June 15, saying he would have more information about first flight at the Farnborough air show next July!

Speaking at the sidelines of a meeting in Russian Far East city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur Monday, May 11, Russian deputy prime minister Sergei Ivanov told journalists:

"By the end of this year, the plane will rise into the air and flight tests will begin."

According to announced plans, the FGFA is to be inducted into the Russian Air Force by 2015 and into the Indian Air Force by 2017.

The fighter, estimated to be in the 30t category, is expected to feature super maneuverability, super cruise and stealth with an internal weapon bay. It is also expected to feature an advanced variant of the Tikhomirov Instrument Engineering Research Institute developed N035 Irbis-E radar that equips the Su-35BM.

Russia and India will simultaneously develop two versions of the combat aircraft - a two-seat version to meet the requirements of India's air superiority policy, and a single-seat version for the Russian Air Force.

PARIS AIR SHOW: Sukhoi secretive on PAK-FA programmes

Sukhoi is still working on a prototype of its fifth-generation "PAK-FA" advanced tactical frontline fighter, but the schedule for its flight-test programme remains unconfirmed, despite earlier indications that the aircraft would fly in 2009.

The Russian manufacturer is focusing its promotional efforts at the show on the Superjet 100 regional jet. Director general Mikhail Pogosyan says he will talk about the fifth-generation fighter at the next Farnborough air show "or later". It is "something for the future", he says.

Pogosyan confirms that the company is creating a prototype and preparing for the start of trials, and that internal discussions regarding the prototype are under way. Beyond that, any communication on the programme awaits the outcome of trials. Last year, Russian news agency RIA Novosti quoted industry and energy minister Viktor Khristenko as saying that "the flight tests of the aircraft are scheduled to begin in 2009".

PAKFA Nearing FLIGHT TRIALS.....
Sukhoi’s 5th-gen fighter takes shape, nears flight

By: Stephen Pope

Sukhoi’s long-anticipated fifth-generation multirole fighter is nearing the start of flight trials as work continues on the prototype aircraft, the famed Russian aircraft builder’s chief executive confirmed at the Paris Air Show yesterday.

Sukhoi CEO Mikhail Pogosyan predicted the world will soon know much more about the new fighter, referred to internally as the T-50. “Let’s wait until next year, perhaps at the Farnborough airshow, to learn more about our fifth-generation fighter,” Pogosyan said. “Now we are just stating that we are working on the prototype and getting prepared for flight trials.” Observers predict the new fighter could be rolled out as early as this summer.

Russia is developing the new-generation Sukhoi to compete with the U.S. F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II, the world’s first fifth-generation fighters. Eventually the new airplane will replace the MiG-29 Fulcrum and Su-27 Flanker fighters in the Russian air force and be exported to other countries. Sukhoi is sharing development costs and engineering for the project with India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.

Pogosyan said Sukhoi has an $8 billion order backlog for its fighters and controls about 20 percent of the world export market. He noted the firm is preparing to add a third Su-35 prototype this month to the flight-test program for its last fourth-generation fighter (referred to by Sukhoi as generation 4++ ). Su-35 deliveries are slated to start in 2011 (see related story on page 21).

Well the Al 41 was conceptualized early in 2003 when i just visited the Saturn plant. It was sait to have a thrust of 145kn then. Hope it will be in production soon. Is the PAKFA going to be powered by the 117s i presume. The prototypes i mean.

The Al-41 will be used initially. Later a new engine will be used. It will have a thrust of 17.5 tons compared to 14.5-15 tons on the Al-41.

PAK-FA will be shown on August 16 but on a personal note .......

I think it will be wise of - russians to keep PAK-FA secret till they have an flying version with some good expriment already done. because once it is out - its always hard to keep it secret. and also will cost way too much.
