The first flight-capable prototype has begun testing. So far it's ground tests only, but a flight is only weeks, if not days, away. I suspect it may be 31st or 1st as a New Years thing. We will see. What I really look forward to, is seeing the photo.

Yes. Sarcasm is great. Well so far it hasn't.

That was not sarcasm, when building a plane, any mishap during ground test will cause massive delays in the project.

Why there is still no photos of it?

Because it's Russia, and we like to keep things secret. And because they're probably wanting to do a huge unveiling ceremony at the same time as it has it's first flight. Remember KnAAPO has to market this baby. The VVS is bound to order some, but the more the better and since the MoD budget is now pretty much under Premiers Administration control, they have to impress the bureaucracy. Also foreign buyers have to want it. So far India has signed up for joint development. However it would be ideal if similar, if less in depth, agreements were to be signed with other countries.

I hope they show it right after its first flight and not months later...
I'm curious about the design of it.

Pics are not real. They're alleged pics. Anyways, other sources say the flight is tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed.
