Sukhoi PAK-FA spin recovery footage

Check out this video of the Russian Sukhoi PAK-FAfifth-generation stealth fighter. There is some good footage of the jetundergoing flight tests–my comprehension of the Russian language is virtuallynon-existent, but I think the reporter is giving an overview of the jet’scapabilities.


 If I understood correctly–the PAK-FA has a lot of the samefeatures that you’d find on the F-22 or F-35 like embedded antennas and sensorfusion. But the Russian aircraft seems to have automation to the point where itcan land itself if the pilot is incapacitated, but that could be mymisunderstanding.

 If anyone speaks/understands Russian, I’m sure you’ll get muchmore out of this than me–but cool footage nonetheless. Incidentally, some ofthe footage looks like spin testing, but unlike similar US testing you mightsee at Edwards AFB or Pax River, the Russians don’t seem to use a spin-chute.
