    any comment? I personally think its not as stealthy as F-22. Besides, the clip looks strange, at first the plan appeared to be taking off, but then it turned out to be a landing. Along with the parachute, does it mean that the speculation about a 300-400m landing is correct?

    It's a taxi ran, not flight. Also, the engines are not ready yet.

    LOL, i thought its a short runway landing trick of PAK-FA. So was it really a clip of today flight or the taxi run test a few days ago?

    It seems to be pretty early in the prototyping stage:

    1. Hard to tell if there is enough space for internal weapon bays.
    2. Nose resembles YF-23 but does not look fully fleshed out (eg radome shape)
    3. Undercarriage does not appear to be faceted for stealth.
    4. Rear seems less stealthy than F-22.

    Either the aircraft will have less emphasis on all-aspect stealth than F-22/F-35, or it's still at a stage of development that's probably less mature than the YF-22.

    Look's like there are two weapon bays. Or is it just one big?
