New Russian jet fighter   1 comment


 

The T-50 is Russia’s new fifth generation fighter jet.  It is the country’s equivalent to the American F-22 Raptor.  The Russians are always a few years behind the Americans in terms of introducing new technology.  The F-22 was developed 20 years ago and introduced into front line service 5 years ago.  But the Russians eventually catch up.  And they do have some of the best pilots in the world.
