Russian T-50

American F-22

I am a huge aviation fan, so I was really excited when the Sukhoi T-50, Russia’s new generation of fighter jet was unveiled last January. I was even more excited when the new paint scheme was unveiled recently! It looks like a steam-punk F-22 (Americas current fr online stealth-ish fighter jet). The design was definitely influenced by the earlier American jet, just look at the photo. The metal exhaust panels at the back look funny given the plane’s otherwise sleek, stealth appearance. The paint job looks like a Luftwaffe camouflage from world war 2.
