Thema: MiG LMFS

Wiederholt bin ich im Internet auf vage Berichte über ein Multirole Kampfflugzeug von MiG mit dem Kürzel LMFS gestoßen , welches
als ein Flugzeug der 5.Generation bezeichnet wird .
Nun existieren auch ein paar Konzeptgrafiken doch dann scheint es keine weiteren informationen zu geben .
Weiß jemand genaueres über das Aussehen , vorgesehene Bewaffnung oder den Entwicklungsstatus dieses Flugzeugs ?

Tja, es stimmt schon, die Verwirrung (bzw. Geheimhaltung) ist groß zu diesem Projekt. Etwas neuerliche Spekulation kam ja erst unlängst nach folgendem Artikel/Bericht auf:
Russia is to build a new lightweight fighter, deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin told parliamentary deputies on 11 December.
“There already is the task in our rearmament programme of creating a future light fighter, and it will be built,” Rogozin said in response to a question from a Duma deputy. “Light fighters are always in demand from the point of view of export potential. Look at the [RAC] MiG-29, for example; it outperforms heavy fighters.”
Russia has always produced a mix of heavy and light fighters, notes Rogozin, who oversees the defence industry. It is currently manufacturing derivatives of the Sukhoi Su-27, designated for its forces, as well as the advanced Sukhoi T-50 stealth fighter, to replace the early-variant Su-27s in service. There is no apparent replacement, however, for the hundreds of MiG-29 fighters in use.
RAC MiG has not had a clear designated successor for the MiG-29 since the demise of the twin-engined Article 1.44 demonstrator in the 1990s. It revived the concept for such a light tactical fighter with initial interest from India around 2001, but New Delhi later opted for the developmental T-50.
Previous Russian air force commanders have referred to a single-engined light fighter sharing the same engine, radar and weapons as the T-50.
RAC MiG is likely to be out of production work once a current batch of MiG-29K naval fighters is completed for the Russian navy. The first four have already been delivered.
Air force commander Lt Gen Viktor Bondarev said in April 2013 that a heavy replacement will be also be built for the service’s modernised MiG-31BM interceptors, with a planned in-service date of 2028.
Funding the construction of another new fighter design, let alone two, would be problematic for the Russian government, which said earlier this month that its budget in the next decade is likely to fall well short of earlier projections.
RAC MiG boss eyes fifth-generation fighter
RAC MiG is contemplating building a fifth-generation fighter which would use its current MiG-35 platform as a "foundation" for the introduction of new technologies.
Sergey Korotkov, general director of the Russian firm, says concepts for a new aircraft have already been worked on by company engineers.
"I know this is one of the ideas, one of the directions, that is in the pockets of the design bureau," he says, speaking through an interpreter. "I do hope that we shall stick to this direction more seriously very soon."
Although he does not detail how advanced its studies are, Korotkov believes it is "very likely" that the new combat type will be developed. However, he says "the most important thing is that it should be ordered".
Such a "time-consuming" project, which requires "quite a big amount of money", would need to have a defined end user before it commenced, he says.
Korotkov plays down suggestions that any work on a fifth-generation fighter would bring MiG into conflict with its sister airframer Sukhoi, which is developing its own stealthy type, the T-50/PAK-FA.
The two aircraft are "are quite different projects and each would be targeted to resolve their own mission", he says.
The maximum take-off weight of the current MiG-35 is around 5t lighter than that of the larger T-50, and Korotkov suggests it will provide greater efficiency for the majority of projected missions.
"We consider that the MiG-35 is that very platform which might, in the future, form the foundation of a fifth-generation fighter," he says.
However, in the meantime RAC MiG is still waiting for confirmation of a long-awaited order from Russia's defence ministry for the present MiG-35.
Korotkov says all the relevant documentation covering the deal for an undisclosed number of aircraft is with the ministry, and he hopes it will be concluded "this year".
Export orders are also being pursued, with Egypt recently linked to a commitment for 24 examples of the Klimov RD-33MK-powered type. However, Korotkov declines to comment on the rumours.
Additionally, in April the airframer received an order for 16 additional MiG-29SMTs for the Russian air force, which will keep the production line active until work can start on the newer model.
Demnach sieht es nach einer MiG-29SMT-II oder "Stealthy Super Fulcrum" aus, aber keinem echten 5. generation fighter.
Heute nun hat 'flateric' im Secret-Projects Forum dazu folgendes Bildchen gepostet, das angeblich auf einem aktuellen UAC Bericht als Cover abgebildet war ....
In diesem Sinne mal sehen, ob, wann, was, ...
