Interesting.  It creates more questions than it answers though.  For instance, why the nozzle on the prototype?  Maybe the engine variant sans afterburner isn't ready yet?   ???
"DARPA Hard"  It ain't what it use to be.

Were you thinking of a specific post?  All I'm seeing is 7 pages of speculation.

a). Currently S-70 is equipped with 117 mod - afterburner and TVC nozzle are locked by FADEC software.
b). Isn't ready net.

Plenty of work to do with guidance and control while the final engines are prepared.

Supersonic dash: in order to keep being relevant with a supercruising fighter...

Imagine your wife with a Vuitton hand bag that keep slipping from her arm... She'll ask you to sent it back and get the 30$ model right after a couple of days.

Wait...   ::)

My latest iteration, with some speculation as to the ultimate configuration of the nozzle & aft deck (to represent a possible production variant, sans the lumps and bumps). Looking at the newest photos & re-examining the older ones, the wing tips apparently have a F-117-like crop that is not visible in the outlines painted onto Su-57 #053 (image resolution too low in the tail fin silhouettes, edge pixelation too coarse in the belly/back digital camo).

EDIT: the sweep angles seem a bit too steep as drawn, but the relationships look right to me.

There's basically nothing in there about S-70 that hasn't been mentioned here in this thread.

the size.. if accurate can be used to determine what kind of power aperture achievable for hypothetical radar.

Maybe this one can hold more promise for the leading edge mounted L-band aperture.

I have feeling that nose radar might be version of side-looking N036 array. Makes sence from unification and price points.

One could fit a half decent 400 by 800 mm aperture radar in that nosecone. So it could be closer to a light fighter radar in capability.

Well, side array of N036 is not too small either. Pretty well cam fit into "light fighter" category, esp considering possibility of use of GaN TRMs.
