    Still, the camouflage from the T-50-5P (pictured) I like a lot more than pixel.

    In the third video, during a discussion of long-range combat, passing into the melee, Sergey Leonidovich, with all due respect, is a little disingenuous. Considering the spherical situation of the collision of fighters, the advantage will be the same for the one that first saw the enemy and first attacked, because with the subsequent entry into close combat, in addition to death maneuverability, the quantitative component also plays a role.

    Therefore, work on reducing visibility and detection tools is still underway in our program.

      It is being fought, but ... in close combat, Bogdan correctly said that you can see the enemy, just like you, but you can’t turn your weapon in his direction ... that’s why you need extra maneuverability to turn to a critical angle and work out on the enemy.
