The next planes are the T-50 projects or am I wrong... looks like there is a boom in russia, china and some other nations in developing some stealth planes.

 

I read something about a replacement project for the MiG-31, called 7.01 and y infos about it. The MiG-31 is expensive and a very specialised aircraft... still very dangerous with it`s strong radar and Amos missiles.

 

Yak 141 is still in service... hope I don`t mix it with the Forger... have to search in wiki

The Yak-38 have been out of service for quite some time now, they were probably retired along with the early Minsk carriers in 1993 or at very last with the Baku (Gorshkov IIRC) in 1996.

The Yak-141 never entered service as the program was terminated in the 90's, but AFAIK the development aircrafts are still kept in flying order in case the program got reactivated.

 

There would be little point in reactivating the Yak-141 program as the remaining carrier in Russian service can operate more cost efficient types (Su-33, MiG-29K).

Not too much, want to keep it as low as possible... I still didn't finish it, but my goal is to keep it under 18k, 15k better.
