I'd still prefer a PAK-FA over a stripped down JSF anytime, anywhere unless you can bring up some substance that backs up your 'point'

I doubt it can do what the makers say it can do. I'm sure it will more than capably replace the F-16, but it's when they say it's going to replace the F/A-18 and A-10 is when I get my doubts up. It will never be able to replace the A-10 and as for the F/A-18 I have trouble with a single engine stealth plane on the deck of a carrier. Trying to replace the A-10 with the F-35 is like replacing the Abrams with the Bradly, and having two engines on a navy plane is almost a necessity because of the vast distances over water the have to travel should one engine go out and on takeoff so you don't have to ditch if your one and only engine flames out. There is a reason we have so many different planes for specific roles and that is because you get the most out of a plane when you design it for it's intended role, when you make it have various roles you have to make compromises that degrade it's ability for specific tasks.

What makes you think they would sell their plane with their advanced avionces to a western country? I'm sure they would be worried it might fall into American hands jsut as we are worried our tech might fall into the Russian hands. Your best option is to do what Israel does and make your own Avionics that suit your needs, that way regardless of what plane you choose you have top notch avionics.

I'm not saying Russia would do that, I can't be sure.. but America ally to my country for over 400 years does not trust us with their technology but still wants us to help invest in the aircraft. that's what bothers me.
