First flight of the Sukhoi T-50

Sukhoi T-50 first flight

A very interesting plane has made its first flight a couple of days ago - the Sukhoi T-50, that is the first Russian stealth fighter. Looks like a YF-23/Su-27 hybrid to me...and it also makes some of the Ace Combat 6 aircrafts look a little more lifelike... Here is a video of the first flight:

As for the Flight Simulator X F-35 project is proceeding in the right direction - and I'm confident that the Beta will be noticeably better than the Alpha in almost every respect. Hopefully it will be ready in a week or so.

@ blackbird

very interesting pictures.
Albeit its design seems less "5th generation" than the F-22 an F-35, it is still a very interesting and cool machine.

In these pictures it seems less similar to the YF-23 than what I initially thought... but still, very much Ace Combat-esque :-)

it doesn't come close to the F-22 or f-35. it won't be able to touch them
