Replacement for the MiG-29 PAK-FA Latest flight on Youtube
Going to the Wiki link of the PAK, the development/alternative the Mikoyan Project 1.44/1.42, only a few were built, but this is classic :-
"the aircraft is also known as the MiG-MFI"
"Despite the non-production status of the 1.44/1.42, NATO has assigned the reporting name "Flatpack" to this aircraft."
I take it there was a Brit in the NATO 'naming' department that day?
It reminds me of the competitor that got eliminated before the USAF selected the Raptor - the name escapes me...

It's not very stealthy. That bloody music can give it away.
Separate names with a comma.
