Russia’s new jet fighter claims to have a higher maximum speed, greater freight capacity, and longer maximum flight time than the American F-22 and Chinese J-20 models, according to The Moscow Times.
The fifth-generation PAK FA T-50 jet fighter, first shown off in an August 2011 Russian air show, also requires a shorter take off distance as compared to its American and Chinese counterparts.
Lockheed Martin stopped production of the F-22 in December, while the next generation F-35 was tested in 2006 for use in 2016.
