To "C3k" (Quoting got messed up)

 

Yeah and one kills reporters and "enemies" of the state, and illegally invades countries killing thousands in the process, huge difference!

The bias here is obvious and does nothing except make your argument moot.

This seems to apply to many state actors, if not Ukraine - the United States has engaged in plenty of literally illegal wars (Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia/America, where never legally at war; Bay of Pigs; Grenada; Iraq part 2 is legally contentious etc), and has killed plenty of reporters (if, often by accident, such as the Reuters reporters being killed by an Apache strike - but I'll note that the dead reporters probably wouldn't care to debate the exact intent). There are very few state actors which have clean hands. Ukraine in particular has the issue of nationalist partisans often having white supremacist Nazi sympathizers within their ranks, which makes the idea of a good/evil dichotomy between Ukraine and Russia even muddier.

A little humor....­čśÄ

I think the Abrams in CMBS is somewhat more godly than in reality. I also think the technical aspects of armored vehicles matters less in real wars than in war games. In an actual war between NATO and

Guidance helicopters VKS RF to strike at ISIS.

We have an analogue "Uniform Code of Military Justice", only here it is called the All-Military Charters of the RF Armed Forces. It includes:
1) Charter of the internal service of Armed Forces
2) Disciplinary Charter of Armed Forces
3) Marching Charter of Armed Forces
4) Charter of the garrison and guard services of Armed Forces
5) Ship charter of Russian Navy
6) Charter of the military police of Armed Forces
7) The military regulations of Armed Forces - it has its own subparagraphs

The first three charters are fundamental as they explain the relationship between the military, the requirement of them and their rights.

With so many mounds on the body of the UAV is something difficult to talk about low visibility.

 

Too far away to tell, but if those antennas are curved, or angled to deflect the RADAR wave from returning back to the base unit that's sending out the waves, then it could be very low visibility. I'm assuming you're talking about the antennas.

I suspect it may only be 'stealthy' from the front, but that might be intentional.....That's quite a big UAV (it's significantly larger than the X-47B) with a very powerful looking engine and it also appears to have very large payload bays:

Has there ever been any talk of a two-seat variant of the Su-57?  One would imagine having an extra man as a dedicated drone controller might be advantageous in a high performance aircraft. 

 

They can barely produce the 12 SU-57's they want right now so I'd imagine it might have been planned but it doesn't look like its going to active duty anytime soon.

1. Indians wanted a two-seat option for FFGA but the deal fell through as the original plans hadn't provided for one.

2. The claim is Hunter-B was designed to operate together with Su-57 but I don't have any specifics.

They can produce many more it's just the aircraft is yet unfinished, there's no rush to produce more than one needs for testing and system integration.

The plane can repeat the fate of  SU-27, which at first looked different and has other equipment and then had to redo everything radically.
