Ok, I'm definitely old-fashioned.

 

Why does everything have to look like a flat flying diamond? (Yes I know, stealth, can't wait til someone develops active radar suppression and warplanes can go back to being purely aerodynamic...)

I think they don't look too bad in flight from a bird's eye view or from below. Side on, there's certainly not much beauty about them, very ordinary looking.

Why waste payload carrying anything besides wing?

Because a fighter should have curves like Megan Fox, a nose like a Betty Page bra cup, wings that would make Fibonacci green with envy and the throaty growl of a Merlin.

 

Told you I was old fashioned.

Sukhoi has started on the contract to supply production Su-57 aircraft to the Russian Air Force. The first aircraft will be handed over before the end of 2019. The contract is for 76 aircraft with the aim to rearm three air regiments.
