MIG-29 isn't the top of line dog fighter, the SU-27 series is. The Yak-141 was set to enter production, but the soviet union fell. Lockheed actually paid Yakolov for the Yak-141 plans so they could use its VTOL tech on the F-35.


In other words, no F-35 in WG if Soviet Union stays 8-)

F-32 for the 'murikans :D

I think Lockheed payed for Yakolev to continue their research and give them data from testing.

With regards to plane configuration there are very few viable supersonic VTOL configurations so you can't really accuse anyone of direct copying since all engineers have to obey physics and other laws of nature.

My list:
Tochka-U (1975)
2S4 Tyulpan (1969)
S300 (1975)
and last but not least Su-34 aka Su-27IB (1990 proto, 1994 serial production)

Spoiler : :
I have no problem with me being typical soviet fan, who wants only OOTF units :roll: .

I think this not very major change is possible for the soviet and NSWPMiG-23 line:
MiG-23ML
MiG-23MLA(this model should have 4xR-73s)
MiG-23MLD(loadout replaced with 2xR-73 and 2xR-27R, increase ECM)

As for the polish MiG-23ML, it should be renamed into MiG-23M. Add the MiG-23ML for poland to have 6x R-60Ms

Btw, "Armata" (a completly new russian tank) is stated to have unmanned turret either. They plan to show Armata to public in 2015.
