Too much heat signature. Wings sweep to severe. Any degradation in fly by wire and it will be uncontrolable. Still its an impressive aircraft.

A bit premature judgments IMHO: engine installation and nozzles are still not definitive, and speaking about wing sweep and fly by wire... guys, every modern intrinsically unstable fighter simply can't survive any critical fly-by-wire system degradation... sweep or no sweep, they can be flown only thanks to their AFCS computers.
Russian designers may be one step behind about stealth and avionic technologies, but in aerodynamics and flight mechanics fields really have little to learn from anyone.

The last thing this pilot wants to see in his rear view mirror is an F-22 Raptor.

I have to agree with the poster from Italy. Of course he is correct. However, the really telling aspect of this photograph (besides its superb quality) is that it depicts Russia's latest stealth fighter effort in 2011 engaged in flight testing, while the photo by the same photographer shows the F-22 Raptor, which, from just about any angle, simply "looks" far more advanced, fully deployed and operational - in 2010. Interpret that however you like.
