So the latest rumblings are that the Su-57 may be pivoting towards an export focus, and that work on a sixth generation fighter should begin.

 

I suppose asking the Indians about that first part is inadvisable.

Russia announced earlier this month that the Su-57, its proposed entry into the world of fifth-generation stealth fighter aircraft, will not see mass production.

 

Alright...I guess it means the Monino Museum will get a new outdoors exhibit.

But despite Russia's non-stop praise for the plane and dubious claims about its abilities, (Russian Deputy Defense Minister) Borisov ultimately said, "The Su-57 is considered to be one of the best aircrafts produced in the world. Consequently, it does not make sense to speed up work on mass-producing the fifth-generation aircraft.”"

 

*blink* what is this excuse I don't even

 

...Seriously, is this piece of news accurate? BusinessInsider isn't exactly my go-to source of military information and I'm wary of such clickbaity articles.

@Collimatrix

You may enjoy this article. Article author should find himself in Siberia for being dumb as fuck.

It's cancelled my dudes.

 

Ninja'd again.

 

Another EDIT: Seems they're just mothballing it, not cancelling it. Though bringing it back will be even more expensive I believe.

I guess the moral of the story is - Don't spend all your money on a shit-load of projects with low probability of success, but few projects with higher probability and buy the rest from elsewhere.

      Topic to post photo and video of various AFV seen through a thermal camera.
      I know that we won't be able to make any comparisons on the thermal signature of various tank without knowing which camera took the image and that the same areas (tracks, engine, sometimes exhaust) will always be the ones to show up but anyway:

      I found this interesting picture of the Yakovlev MFI design:
       

       
      Obviously, it was never built.  The MiG submission was the 1.44 and the Sukhoi submission was the SU-47.
