Yak-49 - FAKE
The Yakovlev Yak-49 is described as "a single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather stealth attack aircraft, introduced to the Russian Air Force in 2013. The fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack, aerial reconnaissance, and, to a limited degree, air defense missions. A navalized version is expected to appear soon, too. The Yak-49, designed by the famous JSC A.S. Yakovlev Design Bureau, today part of the United Aircraft Building Corporation, is the result of a long development line that dates back to the Yak-141 supersonic VTOL fighter and its side projects."
