    No more MIG and Sukhoi?

    Sort of...

    Apparently the 2 will join up in a single unit, at least for the combat aircraft...

    UAC-29... UAC-27... sounds like names of drones...

    I'm surprised it took them this long honestly.

    We've seen plenty of mergers in this area in the US in the last few decades and despite having a MUCH larger market, Lockheed and Boeing are about the only two that can realistically produce a modern fighter. Northrop and General Dynamics maaaybe?

    I bet the T-50 project has opened some eyes about the major difficulty involved in trying to keep within shouting distance of the US in this area and the need for more resources behind such a project if it's actually going to deliver a competitive product.
