Lapel pins handed out at the just concluded MAKS-2009 air show at Zhukovsky had this aft cross-section of the Sukhoi T-50
, the Indo-Russian fifth generation fighter aircraft (FGFA
, by Indian designation). RussiaToday
quotes Sukhoi official as saying that the lapel pin is a cheap Chinese fake ("wait till they reverse engineer the PAK-FA, my friend!
"), though other Russian officials apparently said this was an authentic depiction of the prototype and wind tunnel model. Since we've constantly been treated only to fantasy impressions and imaginary depictions, here's something that's out from Sukhoi itself.Photo Copyright RussiaToday
