I love this shot of the T-50 as it shows not only the unique design of the aircraft, but also how it is evolving.

    I suppose large tires and resilient landing gear is more cost effective than resurfacing most runways yearly. Too bad a ski set-up wouldn’t retract. By this photo it looks like the nozzles are 360 degree? Does the Raptor’s thrust vectoring have that capability?

      Al Prazolam- Yep Russian hardware works in less than pristine conditions, thus the mud guard and thick gear etc And yeah she had 3D thrust vectoring, the raptor only has 2D.
