    PAK FA '509" with its LEVCONs deflected.
    The PAK FA and the Naval LCA are two aircraft which field the LEVCONs for increased controlability at low speed and high alphas.

    The ZSh-10 is in development for PAK-FA (and versions for other aircraft including helicopters) -

    A hell lot of tech seems to be cramped inside the HMD.
    It seems 3 times a mans head to me or 4 times by volume.:tomcat:

    Not aware of such - it's only been seen in air shows AFAIK.

    Sukhoi PAK-FA Could Power India’s Fifth Gen Fighter
    ASIA & PACIFIC
    12:33 03.08.2017

    [​IMG]
    As a high-level committee clears the deck for signing the second stage of the Indo-Russia fifth generation fighter aircraft (FGFA) project, it is expected the Indian Air Force (IAF) will receive the fifth generation fighter just when 11 squadrons of obsolete MiG-21s and MiG-27s are set to retire in 2024.

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — Industry people involved with the decade-long project expect the deal to be signed in the coming months as most contentious issues have been resolved including costs. Early conclusion of the R&D contract will pave way for testing Indo-Russia FGFA fighter to the IAF in the next three years with the flying platform made by the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). The FGFA will be based on the Sukhoi-designed PAK-FA.

    "The IAF FGFA would be powered by the second stage engine of the PAK-FA which is still under development. PAK-FA is being developed using NPO Saturn AL-41F1 engine, which will also power the initial production lot. The second stage engine, unofficially referred to as Product 30, is expected to start flight trials in end-2017," Vijainder K. Thakur, senior editor of Geopolitics and former IAF squadron leader, said.

    It is considered that compared to the AL-41F1, the new engine is 30% lighter, features improved thrust (19,000 kgf vs 15,000 kgf), better fuel efficiency and fewer moving parts resulting in improved reliability and 30% lower life-cycle cost. Highly efficient supercruise engine puts an end to the concern earlier raised by the IAF about the engine power of the T-50.

    Integration of the Product 30 engine and flight testing on the PAK-FA could take 2-3 years, which would give time to redesign the airframe for a second cockpit and integrate India-specific electronics and flight computers.

    "If we join now, we will still get a significant part of the work share, thanks to delays in the PAK-FA project. HAL would co-design the avionics, including navigation systems, radars and weapon aiming devices. This is the heart of the fighter's combat ability," T Suvarna Raju, chief of HAL, the Indian partner of the project, told Business Standard.

    Another concern, reported in Indian and Western media, was the exorbitant price demanded by Russia, which was actually not the case. Defensenews had reported in May this year that, ‘Russians are demanding more than $7 billion as part of India's share in the development of the FGFA.' Another Indian media outlet said IAF will run out of cash as Russia has asked it to purchase 127 such aircraft at a cost of $135 million each.

    "Russia has been very positive. My understanding is that Russia and India would jointly share development cost of the FGFA from the PAK-FA, which appears very generous on the part of the Russians as they are not asking India to pay for the development of the PAK-FA per se," Vijainder K. Thakur added.

    India has spent $240 million for primary design phase as of March 31, 2017. Now, for the R&D phase, an expenditure of approximately $3.05 billion will be required. Earlier this month, Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec Corporation, had said the second stage of the project is being discussed and will be completed in the near future as documents have been signed.

    Su-57: Russian Air Force chief confirms 5th-gen fighter jet name

    The Russian military will name the country’s first fifth-generation fighter jet ‘Sukhoi Su-57,’ the commander of the Russian Air Force has confirmed. The aircraft was dubbed ‘PAK FA’ and ‘T-50’ during its development.
    “The decision has been taken, the plane has been christened. Su-57 is what we are going to call it now,” Gen. Col. Viktor Bondarev told Zvezda, the Russian Defense Ministry’s official TV channel.
    The quote is part of an interview which will be published later on Saturday

    The general confirmed earlier media reports, which said PAK FA’s official designation would be Su-57. There had been speculation in military media outlets that the name would be officially confirmed during the MAKS 2017 Air Show near Moscow in July, but this failed to materialize.
    The Su-57 made its maiden flight in 2010 and is expected to go into series in 2019, when production of the first batch of 12 fighter jets will begin, according to the manufacturer. The Russian Defense Ministry could contract up to 200 of the advanced aircraft for its fleet.

    The multirole fighter jet comes with an estimated price tag of $50 million apiece and features a body primarily built of composite materials for stealth, supercruise capability at a speed of Mach 1.3 and supermaneuvrability during dog fights. Sometime after going into series it will receive a newly-designed engine, currently dubbed ‘Product 30.’

    The armament of the Su-57 is placed in internal bays to reduce air drag and radar cross section. It includes a recently-modernized 30mm cannon and a range of 14 different air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles and guided bombs.

    This article confused me, isn't Su-57 the name of India/Russia joint developed on PAK FA/T50 platform.

    But this article calling PAK FA as SU-57?

    No, Su-57 is the service designation name of Russian Air Force variant. No one knows what IAF variant could be called.

    "PMF" is the name I've been hearing of the Indo-Russian program. But again, that's the name of the program, not the plane. The plane itself could be called Su-57MKI, Su-60 or who knows what else.
