Another U.S. design rip-off. Russia has cancelled/rescheduled it's first flight 3 times and is STILL not any closer to building it. They have countries refusing delivery of MiG-29s for quality issues that are '70s technology!! How in the world are they going to deliver on the promised performance of what is still just a concept?

Does anyone really believe that those last pics portray what the actual T-50 will look like? That thing is a monster...how much would the empty weight be....50,000 lbs? There is no way Russia could afford such a large 5th-gen aircraft. I know the published engine info suggests a large F-22 type plane, but I can't help but wonder if it does not end up being a single engine type.
