Defenc(s)e analysis frommy corner ofthe Internet.
Big photo of the bottom. The engine compartment is interesting. http://forum.keypublishing.com/showthread.php?s=003be59e0b01cf9c89535ee4f76405aa&t=109712&page=20I like so far:-It's so flat!! It amazes me to no end how flat that plane is.-how it lands so gingerly (obviously it's the top test pilot being asked to be gentle with expensive prototype. But still' it glides so effortlessly, straight and stable. total control. It's serious flying machine.)- The slow roll, including sudden change of nose direction. That is deadly. I bet somewhere in air force research department, somebody is screaming. we need that F-24 now.- a lot of argument what about the control surfaces. It sure has a lot of it.- it seems to be able to suspend itself flying on its side.. (definitely deadly on dog fighting tail chase. Bigger wing, much better roll control.) I guess we'll see if the russian bet on 3D thrust vectoring actually pays off.
Notice how carefully the camera is pulled out when the aircraft is fully employing all those amazing control surfaces and its 3D TVC. Sukhoi is not showing all the goods in this video and its keeping its cards close to the chest. Why not keep those arrogant vainglorious morons in the US screwing around with the stupid F-35?Something wicked this way comes....

Great video over at Parlay thanks! Very carefree handling with what appears to be a great instantaneous turn rate. Like our first poster stated the nose can be pointed quickly anywhere with total control.
Very smooth and controlled.

All at very low altitude and speed. It will be down right suicidal if done on 4th gen fighter.
