    There's no way Russia will sell Iran the PAK FAs in 5 years. Most export customers will have to wait until at least 2030 before they can start negotiations. The Russians can't make enough for exports right away. And FGFA will be ready only after 2023.

    However Iran is a prime candidate for the Su-35 and Mig-35. They may be interested in the Chinese J-31 as well.

    I think the recent deal actually prevents such a sale anyway, even if it were likely.

    The F35 has got a very advanced IR detection system all 360 degree coverage. Can you imagine the amount of white dots of missiles coming towards an F35? Terrifying.

    now this fighter can acquire all kinetic vectors=0 ie drop like a stone midflight and then regain speed and altitude. What scenarios?

    Unique Capabilities of PAK FA Pilot’s Gear Unveiled / Sputnik International

    A special suit for pilots who will fly the newest Sukhoi PAK FA (also known as T-50) jet fighter has been developed by Russian engineers and scientists.

    The new pilot gear can arguably be considered a technical revolution in the field.

    The suit was specially designed to make the pilot feel comfortable during supersonic-speed flights. It is equipped with an anti-G system which features a hose for delivering air to the pilot.

    The gear also features pockets for flight documents. In the abdominal area there is a metal plate which presses against the pilot’s body to maintain blood flow to the head.

    The costume was developed and is being currently tested by Zvezda R&D center in the city of Tomilino, near Moscow.

    In addition, the facility is also testing a pilot’s helmet, the most technically advanced part of the gear.

    Produced of composite materials like the PAK FA aircraft itself, the helmet is extremely light and can withstand overloads during an ejection escape at speeds of over 1000 kmh.

    The all-digital helmet is connected to all PAK FA’s on-board photo and video cameras and transmits all data to its visor. As a result, all actual flight information is always before the eyes of the pilot.

    "When the pilot’s head moves the image [on the helmet display] changes respectively. What is more, the system is capable to detect the pupil’s movements for automatic targeting," one the developers told the TV channel Zvezda.


    In addition, a new survival kit has been developed for the PAK FA pilots.

    If the pilot has to eject and land in an unknown area this kit is his only chance to survive.

    The survival pack contains a pan, antenna, signal mirror, 16 cubes of sugar, first aid kit, two match boxes, a signal pistol with charges, 1.5-liter bottle of water, machete knife, radio beacon, and portable radio.

    When necessary the container of the kit can be easily turned into a boat or a water-proof sleeping bag.

    The PAK FA is a single-seat, twin-engine jet fighter, and the first operational aircraft in Russian service to use stealth technology. It was designed by the Sukhoi Design Bureau. The aircraft will be used to achieve air superiority and assist in ground attacks.

    Besides its ability to fly at speeds well above Mach 2, the T-50 boasts other, even more important, features such as invisibility to radar and powerful weapons which will be unveiled later.

    In December 2014, Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation announced that production of the fighter was ready to begin in 2016. Fifty-five PAK FA jets will enter service in the Russian Air Force by 2020.

    K-100 is a combination of AWACs killer and Anti-satellite missile. It has a booster which allows it to follow a boosted lobbed trajectory to increase its range or climb vertically up to shoot down low earth orbit satellites. It has TVC for maneuvering which allows it to operate in space also. Izdeliye-810 is completely designed for internal carriage and shoot down targets within atmosphere.

    That bit in bold will be operational before the same bit in bold is operational on the F-35.
