Private Russian designer imagines PAK-FA


The DEW Line is proud to introduce new blog contributor Dave Majumdar. This is his first post.

Aleksander Dultsev, a Russian industrial design artist, has created some stunning renderings of what he imagines the Sukhoi PAK-FA 5th generation fighter might look like.

Dultsev has created three such designs. One is clearly based on the Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut, while another appears to be based loosely on the hypothetical 1980s vintage Testors F-19 stealth aircraft model kit.

A third design seems to combine the characteristics of the Testors F-19 with that of the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.

    Nice artwork. Purely notional, of course. It’s easy to produce powerpointware, difficult and expensive to produce working hardware/software.

    I think Sukhoi PAK-FA’s design wil be based on combine characteristics of the sukhoi su-47 with that of the F-22 Raptor.

    All 3 pics are of the same shape aircraft, and as you point out clearly based on the plastic F19 toy. Nice pics though.
