    But a two engine design. There could be several tons fuel in difference.

    F-22 has over 8 tons, and it has closly connected engines.
    See my point?

    I am inclined to believe the Su-57 has same amount of fuel as Su-35S.
    But lets wait nd see.
    In this case it's little to do with engine layout and more about the Su-57 and Su-35 being much larger than the F-35 by a huge margin.

      I think hes trying to say, any design that looks like the su57 is the correct design. Anything that looks like the f35 is the bad one

          I'm pretty sure i mentioned F-22 and Su-57 as a comparison. And i'm also sure i did not bring up F-35. Others do..
          Nice try actionJ and J-20

          The F-35 Navy Requirements is debated to dead. I pointed this out to J-20.
          I must have hit a nerve or something.. just deal with it.

            Well, we can start with the fact that your statement is fundamentally incorrect. The length of the F-35 was not determined by CVN constraints, it was dictated by LHD lift size and deck park (in other words, the Marines).

            second, is your statement about area rule and length. Area rule applies to the transonic region. A longer F-35 could have improved fineness ratio, and PERHAPS that would allow different distribution, but the two versions challenged in transonic acceleration are the B & C one has a rather noticeable hump due to lift fan and the other has a totally different wing.

            Given given the requirements, the F-35 is a long and as wide as it needs to be, simply making the A & C longer would have added weight, decreased commonality, added testing. For what? So internet eyeball drag analysts would be impressed? The only question that matters to the nations purchasing the aircraft is operational relevance, and since the services had a say in what they wanted (payload, fuel, footprint, max airspeed), they drive the dimensions.

              I think everyone can agree that F-35s dimensions weren't driven by aerodynamic requirements alone. The F-35A, or the aircraft in its place more likely, would look different if it weren't for the joint requirement. I'm pretty sure it would be way more sleek for starters.
              Even with the Navy requirement only, i.e. without the STOVL compromises. Originally, the CTOL/STOVL were planned with 40 degree wing sweep f.e., later dumped for commonality reasons. 40 degrees as it happens is exactly the same as found on another jet, designed to be the best ACM machine. Hmm...

              The F-35 is not design by aerodynamics, it's why I don't like the program. The jet itself, the F-35A at least, is probably the best outcome given the requirements though.

              Other programs are not hampered by CTOL/STOVL requirements. Them being more sleek is no coincidence, it's what happens when you design by aerodynamics.
              How can less be more? It's impossible. More is more.

                Not sure the F-35A would have looked any "sleeker". Its weapon bay placement (ie the cheeks) is dictated by the mandate of a single, large engine.

                  No, ActionJackson. Because, as they have stated, they applied layers of ITO to the glass. And they can tailor the conductivity of that through the thickness and number of layers, as well as the ratio of indium oxide to tin oxide (there is no molecule ITO). Similarly, the conductivity of the carbon fiber shell and the exterior coatings can be tailored by doped conductive particle size and number.

                  So do you have any actual evidence that they didn't do any of this? Because I know this is not something you can see. In fact, I would bet you had never thought about it.
                  Oops forgot to respond to this one while on hols. I'm not so concerned with the canopy leading edge as the mid-canopy frame. The nose surface in front of the canopy is likely to be treated with magnetised, tapered conductivity patches as shown on the f-22 below for creeping wave attenuation (though there's no evidence Russia has the high accuracy application process seen on the US aircraft, in fact some early manufacturing photos indicate the T-50s application of the patches was random and haphazardly done)

                  The canopy itself however, is one big, continuous surface with no signs of variable, sawtooth shaped areas of varying conductivity (post Russian pixie dust claims it does exist in 3,2,1...).

                  The Su-57 canopy frame has a clear raised protrusion that can be seen in numerous of the aircrafts high res photos. It also has an obvious 5-15mm seal gap right in the middle.

                  According to a recent test done at a range, an untreated 3mm surface discontinuity on a low RCS ovoid object similar to the canopy, increased the RCS of the test target from -40dbsm to -20dbsm. No small amount.

                  But let me guess, with all the obvious airgaps, bumps and protrusions , and even with surface waves traversing rubber-like seals, the Russians have still managed to achieve perfect continuous conductivity from front to back of the canopy. Sound credible much... Nah didn't think so.

                      Oh, do tell us about this, ActionJackson.

                      The canopy itself however, is one big, continuous surface with no signs of variable, sawtooth shaped areas of varying conductivity (post Russian pixie dust claims it does exist in 3,2,1...).
                      Why would they claim they have "sawtooth shaped areas of varying conductivity" and why do they need this? Sawtoothing edges is an edge technique - an impedance mismatch technique. If you could build the whole surface with no impedance mismatches then you wouldn't need any. Now, obviously you are going to have to use some because of unavoidable openings due to the landing gear, weapons bay, and such. But a lot of the reason why the Raptor looks the way it does is because of how CFRP was built back then (late 90s to early 00s).

                      The Su-57 canopy frame has a clear raised protrusion that can be seen in numerous of the aircrafts high res photos. It also has an obvious 5-15mm seal gap right in the middle.

                      What do you think is untreated? Look, your reasoning is sound. It is true that if the Russians didn't try to build a stealth fighter then they didn't make one. But that's all you say again and again. But I'll bite this time, and I'll start a dedicated thread for this kind of discussion in short while.

                        ActionJackson - I made a stealth thread. Use that. No point talking about the Su-57 on the TFX thread.

                            Way to miss the topic and come across as oafish in one post. You chose banged up old trainers with missing edge tape and bubbled paint as a comparison to brand new, off the factory floor T-50s with designed in, protruding frames and large airgaps following large continuous surfaces with no travelling wave mitigation for what reason exactly?

                            What's next?

                              Once I can find the articles and pictures I'm after. I'll still duplicate the posts in the Su-57 thread where relevant though. Threads started by Russian/wannabe posters tend to be magically deleted when some of the more primitive features of the Su are mentioned. The Su-57 thread wasn't started by a Russian poster so is probably a safer time investment.
