The Sukhoi Su-47 is an experimental fighter used by Russia.
The Su-47 is an incredibly agile fighter. Like its American counterpart, Grumman's X-29 of the 1980's, it has forward-swept wings. Although it is already maneuverable, like the F-22 Raptor and F-15 ACTIVE, the Berkut has thrust-vectoring nozzles that allows for better agility. The Su-47 also features a reclining ejection seat (which is also used on the F-16 Fighting Falcon and F-22), which reduces the impact of high g-forces on the pilot. During development, it was also known as S-32 and S-37. If the Su-47 is ordered for the Russian military, the latter will have a match for the F-22.
