Radiation warning decal... on the LEVCONs of PAK-FA.

 

So there's some sort of emitter stuffed in there.

 

Not sure what'd be radioactive there,  but the Soviets do have a history of using radioactive bits in aerospace applications. Soyuz used a gamma-ray altimeter powered by Cobalt-60 during landing.

I remember reading about some Soviet airplane that had a radiation source in it for some use, I'll see if I can find it.
