    Well, Sukhoi got so much pressure from so many posters on so many forums urging them to fit the T-50 with a single piece canopy that they decided to retaliate by reverting to the 3 pieces set !!!
    Do not upset Sukhoi, they can drive you mad !!

    The PAK FA prototypes are using the AL-41 which is 2D (with the canted mounting it acts like 2.5D vectoring) and I think they still have the nozzles locked center for now. I don't know if the final production engine will be 3D or not.

    There are photos of the engines shifted off enter (one shifter, other straight), so the engine can do 3D vectoring.

    What explanation do you need?

    T-50-1 is grounded. For some reason that we will probably never know, T-50-2 (which is flying frequently) needed new tails. "Cannibalism" is nothing new in test programs. Btw, T-50-1 had its tails refit/fixed at KnAAPO atleast once.

    Second phase engines are supposed to be projected to use flat nozzles. We will see. Around 2016. 3D is possible with flat nozzles, but i really doubt they will bother. They hope to bring the loss of thrust down to 2-3 %, so it wont be too bad.
