   As the TASS news agency reported on December 6, 2018, the fifth-generation Russian fighter Su-57 will receive a hypersonic missile with characteristics similar to that of the Dagger aircraft complex, the relevant works have been included in the state armament program (WPW) for 2018-2027.

Su-57 will get a missile, similar to Kinzhal. Missile planne to be mountable inside of internal weapons bays.

/.../but it will be with intra-body accommodation and smaller dimensions, " said the agency interlocutor.

The source did not specify the characteristics and name of the new rocket, as well as the timing of its receipt for testing.

I saw this news, and I am puzzled.  Kinzhal is just short of 8 meters long.  The maximum length of weapons that fit into SU-57's weapons bays is just over 4 meters.  So this mini-Kinzhal will be about half the size, in linear dimensions, as a normal Kinzhal, which means it will be about 1/8th the weight.

 

Seems like it should have much less performance.

It would be stored in separate bays and assembled mid-air!

You can see that the SU-57 with the UCAV flash on the vertical stabilizer also has replaced the upper and lower DIRCM turrets with antenna fairings.  The obvious guess is that those antenna fairings are for controlling UCAVs.

      Possible image of the H-20 bomber. Screengrab.  This will be the thread for the H-20 as more information becomes available.
       
      Anyone want to take a shot at translating what's on screen for us?
       
      Edit: This is a photoshop, as confirmed later in the thread where it was posted.
      But I'll keep the thread going for later stuff, and H-20 discussion.

      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:
       
      Just to see them under a different light than usual (pardon the terrible pun^^)
