Naval PAK-FA ?

A computer model image of a Naval variant of the PAK-FA Su50 fighter a/c has appeared online. Claims that the Russian navy has asked for a 5th Generation fighter aircraft to be operated from their future aircraft carriers have surfaced.

IDRW.org reports - "Russia is in process of designing and building new Generation of Aircraft carrier for its navy, Plans are to build 3 to 4 new Generation aircraft carrier by 2040-50 which will have a displacement of up to 60,000 metric tons, equipped with a fifth generation aircraft which might be a Naval Pak-Fa".

IDRW.org further reports that the Russian Defence ministry has not confirmed or denied the truth about any request which was put by it navy for Naval PAK-FA. However, Russian Defence sources have confirmed that Russian navy has ordered  Naval Mig-29K to replace its ageing fleet of Sukhoi Su-33 operated from its lone aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, and development of new generation of Nuclear powered aircraft carrier has begun .
