The Sukhoi Su-57, also known as the T-50 and previously known as the PAK FA, completed a 17-minute test flight with a new engine, the Saturn izdeliye 30, on Dec. 5, 2017, at the Gromov Flight Research Institute. The aircraft is designed to eventually replace Russia's fleet of MiG-29s and Su-27s. (United Aircraft Corp. video)

    Yawn. Russia has one jet in testing. We have 180 in service. I like those odds.

    Funny how their aircraft look so similar to ours in design. I wonder how that happens

    No vectored thrust and long take off and landing roll. Short flight time and no attempt at agility.
