Turkey Eyes Indigenous Jet Contract by Mid-2016

“I understand that the Turkish red line about the future aircraft’s ‘national’ identity will be about the capability to fly an aircraft with critical sovereign systems — as well as the rights to be able to sell it to potential buyers without having to knock on any foreign producer’s door,” said one defense analyst.

I presume that means no US content.

Russia's Radical Sukhoi S-37 Fighter Plane Goes Up Against Our F-22

What ???

The text is about the Forward-Swept-Wing (FSW) S-37 (later renamed Su-47 to avoid confusion with the Su-37).

The photo is of a Su-37 - Bort 711 - the 12th Su-35 (T10M) - renamed Su-37 to differentiate it from the other Su-35's.

.... and (as it says at the end) - the story is from 2001.

What's going on ???
