    I'm sorry, when I saw the "US Marines" on her uniform I jumped to the conclusion that she was, well, a US Marine. How could I be so wrong?

    Not everyone in the military is a combat soldier. Someone has to do the laundry, and cook the food. I can assure you that woman has never been in combat. I doubt that picture is even real. I'm not sure how she could have made it through basic training.

    Because you said so, based on your vast piloting experience and thousands of hours in your radio controlled Piper Cub at the park.

    The Russian circus planes would be dead without ever even seeing the F-35s. If we wanted stunt planes for the circus we would build them for that purpose.

    I received an alert for this?

    Don't lose people's time; call me back when you have an actual argument.

    Powerful radar systems of the air defence, ships and aircraft for long-range detection can see f35 at large distances.

    No. No no no. This gets talked about with every new generation of planes that comes out. BVR is not effective. It wasn't effective with the F-4. It wasn't effective with the F14/15/16. It wasn't effective with the F/A-18. It's not effective with the F-22. It's not effective with the F-35.

    BVR launches have an abysmally low success rate, there is a reason the sidewinder is loaded onto every single combat aircraft that runs the risk of an ATA engagement.

    Additionally, to the folks downtalking the Sukhoi-35... I suggest you do your research. BVR, both planes fare equally, with different "peak" zones. AVR, the F-22 has better verticle maneuverability, but the Su-35 has better lateral movement.

    There is so much terrible information in this thread it's damn near giving me an anxiety attack.

    Su 35 is the generation of 4+. F22 should be compared with this machine.

    The denizens here compared the F-35 to the Su-35. The T-50 is more of an apt comparison, but the program only has a handful of prototypes out. It's not combat ready.

    Furthermore, the T-50 isn't what I'd be concerned with anyway. It's how quickly they'll get the Su-47's out.

    T50 is better in many ways than f22. In addition, the T50 radar can see f22 at a distance of 100-130 km.



    I'm also waiting for this plane, but there is very very little information. About three years ago there were talks that new engines for SU47 would be ready in a few years. And supposedly with these engines su47 will be able to fly like a helicopter. Stably fly at a speed of 120 km / h and make combat figures like a helicopter.

    I find this a bit offensive. Every Marine is trained as a basic rifleman. She may be fat, but she has the basic skills to man a post and fight.

    Yeah the initial stuff coming down the pipe for the 47 is... impressive to say the least. That being said, our Gen6's are in the development process, so who knows what we'll come up with for an answer. Let's hope it's not another F-35 debacle.

    If the picture is even real. I have doubts anyone in that condition is permitted to serve.

    There were plenty, all with medical issues that prevented working out though.

    Not quite zero stealth loss. It is transmitting a radio signal to control the drone.

    With CONTROL like that, any pilot worth his salt would be able to dodge any in coming

    I thought the forward swept wing SU-47 project had become a technology demonstrator, is there proof it is an ongoing project?

    I had heard that as well but assumed a heat exchanger would be used and another fluid used as a coolant to the electronics.
