    Great work as usual! :tup:

    If you want, can show the EWS capability with some minor changes too. You just need to add the countermeasure dispenser on top and below the tail sting to the DIRCM and MAWS.

    Some thoughts on the PAK-FA's radars...

    I've been having this doubt for quite a while and then yesterday I was reading @vstol jockey 's posts about Active MAWS and then it hit me about what those radiation markings on T-50's LERX flaps (and maybe even tail cone) could mean. I think the Thai Military Blog analysis about PAK-FA having K/Ka/Ku-band antennas is true after all.

    This looks like a monster with such massive engines

    Radiation sign. It's a danger signal.

    You don't want to be standing in front of those when they are emitting, you could get cooked if they are powerful enough.

    We already know that the side arrays are X band the once in the LERX are L band arrays. There was always speculation on a rear facing radar, because of those stickers, but was never confirmed.
    Active MAWS in addition to the passive system and in a stealth fighter that mainly should operate in passive modes anyway, wouldn't make much sense.

    definitely have ton of sensors never seen before in Russian aircraft. it solely depends on how well the data fusion.

    This is probably as unbiased of a source you're going to get.

    In slow speed 0.3 to 0.5 mach f35 is nearly double the aero dynamically efficient of t 50. simple words f35 has more milage in subsonic speed (below 0.5 mac).

    but f-35's lift to drag ratio fluctuates with different speed even with same angle of attack. might be difficult to control without fbw. comparatively t50 stable across different speed.


    I am no expert, feel free to correct me

    $240 millions is too low for you to expect fast progress on this program especially since government couldn't get Dassault to follow the RFP rules. :slowride:
