Wow. I had no idea this plane even existed outside of video games. Truly a wonder of engineering.

And probably a blast to fly 8)

The famous "berkut" or "golden eagle" (if my russian is wrong, please somebody correct me). Do we have any updates about this fighter?, last time I read about it was in 2000. Its unique geometry makes this machine a contender.

Definitely not better than the F-22. The F-22 is faster, is STEALTH, and is just as manueverable. The S-37 radar wouldn't even pick up the F-22, and it would just get a missile up its ass from "nowhere."

While some folks find this Su-47 design truly unique and revolutionary, the US Air Force flew a similar experimental forward swept wing fighter in the form of the Grumman X-29 over 20-years ago!
Sorry folks, for disappointing you.

So you think such geometry is bad for fighter only because X-29 was unsuccessfull, don't you? Sounds funny. And another opinion about Berkut's stealth blindness is funny, too. S-37/Su-47 has only one problem - it's just an experimantal plane, not serial.

Sorry, but I Didn't say that forward swept wing geometry is bad for fighters. The issue here is Not about "serial" or experimental. Fact is, forward swept wing technology is more than 20-years old and Grumman's X-29 "took the cake". Thank You :-)

He-he. You're right: Russians are not pioneers at such design. But Americans aren't, too. The first plane was German Ju-287, you can find it in GoogleSearch :)I'm sorry for my first comment and bad English ;)

What a munster - this really looks evil. (NOT making any claim about nationalities here, simply talking about the looks of that aircraft.)

Well, the plane itself is pretty impressive, but a shot taken at this angle really makes his unusual outline to stick out, making it look like a great predator bird on a hunt...awesome photo.

The forward wing sweep is a highly unusual feature. The photo is OK. It scored highly with me because of this technical feature.
