    a video of that model has been out for a while.. not really Pak-fa ish in any way..
    it has no moveable lerx
    its two seater
    it has an S duct
    it has 2-d nozzles
    it has side by side bays not tandem ones
    closer to an F-22 with delta wings and no tail rudders.

    are you sure its "only" 2D nozzles?
    the non existent rudders should suggest 3D type for a fighter (agility would be very bad with no rudders and no 3D nozzles)

    Some media outlets that mention this newsbit also add the contract is for 35 missiles. is that an error? someone mixed up the dollar value and number of missiles?

    also, can we be sure the missiles in question are indeed rvv-ae, like the newspaper say? or are they rather rvv-sd, which would make much more sense, knowing rvv-ae is a model that will soon be 20 years old. ?

    Well, I can see replacing the engine, rotor, & transmission (as well as the tail rotor) and some avionics & commo systems from the UH-1Y, which will merge with the USMC supply train as well as address most of the issues the USAF wants to fix... but what will it be called?

    The UH-1Y and AH-1Z have used all the letters in the sequence, so either they try to find a letter that wasn't used, go back to the start and call it UH-1AA, or perhaps play off the "partial UN-1Y" modernization and call it the UH-1Ynot?

    No it's a MiG-23BN , pic taken from the exercises last year (so no it's not dropping bombs on "civilians")
