“An international team of scientists from NUST “MISiS” and the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy), in the framework of cooperation on the ANASTASIA project, have proposed a fundamentally new variant of stealth masking, which will allow the radar signal directed to the object not to be reflected, not absorbed, but simply to pass through, as if no no object. This method of masking is based not on creating a masking coating, but on changing the configuration of the entire system of the object.”

Stealth by transparency, but for it to work they have to master quantum computers next.

Russia’s fifth-generation Su-57 fighter jet is working on the use of an unpiloted mode during tests, a source in the defen?e industry said. “The T-50 flying laboratory is testing an unpiloted mode. A pilot is in the cockpit during a flight but is just controlling the operation of all systems”, the source said. The Sukhoi Su-57 (formerly known as PAK FA, or T-50) is a cutting-edge fighter jet that performs the functions of a strike aircraft and a fighter and is capable of destroying all types of air, ground and naval surface targets. The Russian Defence Ministry placed an order for 76 Su-57 jets during the Army-2019 International Military and Technical Forum. The warplanes should be delivered to the Russian Air Force by 2028. A total of 13 jets have been made so far. Previously, the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) revealed the story behind the name of the aircraft. Su is a reduction of Sukhoi, the surname of a famous Russian aerospace engineer. Number 5 stands for the fifth-generation of Russia’s fighter jets, while seven is a lucky number for the Sukhoi Design Bureau.

No more details given. So what do we have here? An upgraded 5th gen stealth fighter the SU-57 that can be employed as a UCAV too!! This stealth fighter, the Su-57, could be turned into a sixth-generation fighter aircraft, according to a spokesman of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

#Russian Su-57 tested new fuel tanks, 2nd pic old tanks.
What differences do you see......
Su-57 already have an internal fuel capacity of 10,000 kg. This gives it a range of 3500 km. With fuel tanks Su-57 can fly for more than 5000 km. Very very impressive
