What is India's participation in the programme, is it only moneybags!!
Composites, avionics..??

When the deal was officially signed in N Delhi the aeroplane was already flying..

Also there is a dichotomy in the requirement of both forces ie Russians opting a single seater and Indians a twin-seater aeroplane

Hi Capital P,

The current version of PAK FA is a single seater aircraft. India has joined hands with Russia to develop a two seater version which is the requirement projected by IAF and is expected to induct the later in 200-250 nos. The current flying prototype is for Russian Air Force.

Indian two seater FGFA must be a well thought over and experienced strategy over the Sukhoi T-50. It may be especially helpful during the peak and deciding moments of the war.

With this progress the fears of J-20 if any shall be quenched.

this is certainly a good choice of aircraft, guaranteeing India's air power in the future the two-seater version is also a superior choice in my eyes: aside from the doubling in my man power, I imagine that in any future conflict UAVs and UCAVs will be increasingly important, as will the ability to control them from forward aircraft. so with a second pilot on board, FGFAs will be able to directly control one or multiple UAVs/UCAVs, reducing the dependancy on long range (satellite) communications IMO the lack of a two-seater version is a major flaw in both the F-22 and… Read more »

5th Gen means advanced avionics and other eqps/automation which will dispense with the need for a 2nd pilot. None of the 5th Gen fighters have 2 seat configuration. Adding another pilot will severely compromise the stealth and other features of a typical 5th gen fighter. Our IAF is still thinking in terms of 4th Gen for a 5th Gen fighter i.e. generation gap not only in terms of technology but also mindset. Latest news: F35B has flown successfully. We must also think seriously about acquiring this jet for our forward bases and other amphibious operations. Now US Marines have reposed… Read more »

I love the MiG corporation but them bringing nothing more than an upgraded Mig 29 with a bad record of MiG 21 and hoping to win the MMCRA was just a very bad idea,

The PAK FA has only 2 prototypes? Last I heard the J-20 has around 7, which shows that the Chinese are really fast-tracking the J-20's development. This means that the J-20 could be in full production at least 2 years before the PAK FA.
