    That's Type 96 in the video, and it only showed that Chinese crew don't know how to use stabilizer.

    where does T-90 fit in your argument ( that's if you really have one at all)?

    and how do you know that T-95 isn't near production?
    Russians do not always show their hand. I'm willing to bet they have some produced and hidden away.

    I found this quite interesting:

    Meanwhile, the Soviet-era MiG-31 Foxhound supersonic interceptor aircraft will most likely be used as part of the new air-space defense network, as was intended when it was designed.
    "We are upgrading this system to be able to accomplish the same [air-space defense] tasks," Zelin said.
    According to some sources, Russia has over 280 MiG-31 aircraft in active service and about 100 aircraft in reserve.
    Perhaps Mig-31s with anti satellite weapons might appear in the near future...

    Also about the Black Eagle:

    But here is the article I was looking for on the PAK-DA:


    http://en.rian.ru/mlitary_news/20090819/155857912.html



    iIn particular:


    "We signed a contract this year on research and development of a future strategic bomber for the Russian strategic aviation. It will be a conceptually new plane based on the most advanced technologies," Igor Shevchuk said at the MAKS-2009 air show near Moscow.
    (My bold for emphasis).


    This suggests to me stealth or hypersonic... or both.

    [SIZE=1]U.S. troops learn how to use RPGs
    By Mark Abramson, Stars and *****es
    Mideast edition, Friday, October 2, 2009
    Noel Gorospe / Courtesy of U.S. Army
    Pfc. Blake R. Ball, left, from the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment based in Vilseck, Germany, fires a rocket-propelled grenade during training at Novo Selo Training Area, Bulgaria.
    ....
    "It is very easy to fire. There is no kick when you fire the weapon," said Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Ibay, the noncommissioned officer in charge of training at Novo Selo. "It can be a very damaging weapon."
    ....
    Although firing RPGs is new to the Americans, the Bulgarians have been using the Soviet-designed weapon since the 1960s, when they were part of the Warsaw Pact.
    ....
    Shishkov praised the RPG for being usable in any environment and for its simple construction and efficiency because it can fire four to six grenades per minute and destroy heavy vehicles, such as tanks.[/SIZE]

    '98\99 is based on the T-72 .
    It is belevied China was able to procure several numbers of T-72 possibly M/M1 from a middle eastern nation (Syria or Iraq possible) in the early 1990's after failed attempt in the 70's and 80's to develop an indigenous tank.



    The A2 is considered the latest configuration, belevied to be under trials, that does not mean it would be adopted and built en masse



    '98G (Gai, improved) showed days ago during the parade, the standard '99 belevied to serve as backbone of China's elite armored forces today and in the next future, A3 has never been mentioned, all the rest is just fanbois fantasies.

    There is no more likely a modernisation old, there were old sores and there were new weakened zones

    LoL, nice one mousepad, your going to judge Chinese armor capability from a poorly made, clearly biased, and amateur youtube video? I hope Japanese intelligence isn't this fail & lame.

    I hope the rumours of a light single engined 5th gen fighter by Mig is true.
    I' ll have Mig-21 and Su-17 from that list. I'm a bit iffy on the rest.
