Since the SU-35 "could" have mounted a FLIR pod, I gave them the benefit of the doubt on that point.

Yup, YF-22 wing. They degraded the nose area to make it look less obvious.

Accordind to this, it got both TV and IR.

Anyway, the claim is of no interest, obviously a SU 35 may lock a F 22 at some range, the problem is to know what happened prior to that.

Kinda like the Rapier crew who "detected" a B-2 on their IRST. . .at an airshow. :roll:
