    True, but that source is known to make rather obscene exaggerations about PAK-FA. Look at the IRST proposed airborne object detection range for example.
    I found this what-if projections which I thing are much closer to what an actual PAK-FA prototype is going to look like (big hopes for MAKS this year). It's got sound airframe, and that immature prototypeish look.

    70 NM range for AIRST seems an exaggeration but it anyway depends by enviromental condition (bad weather,clouds etc.)
    Anyway use of thermal sensor will create problem to the stealth fighters they cannot reduce emission to zero, sensor fusion too could be a challenge.

    Thats a Su-27, either that or the Pak-FA will be VERY similar, have a look at this pic:

    http://www.suchoj.com/ab1953/Su-27/r...Knights_08.jpg

    You can see the similarities, namely the spine shape and the proportions. Also the
    tail fins start at the same point where there is a bulge in airframe for the engines
    in both pics.

    Too big to be a Mig-35, and the spine is wrong, look at the Mig-35 spine:
    http://www.algerlablanche.com/actual...MIG35_face.jpg

    It stays fat and pretty raised all the way to the end
