Now that is a seriously commendable effort! Hat's off to Tupolev for pulling off something like this! 

Lockeed Martin and the Pentagon (re: F-22 production restart), nay aircraft manufacturers and governments world over should be taking notes, instead feeding drivel to taxpayers.

The story behind it, is also interesting, the production plant and several planes, so far i know, were in the Ukraine after the collapse of the soviet union.

nice new targets.....

seriously though, not unexpected.  We've known for several years the Soviets, er, Russians were working on this.  A significant accomplishment to relocate their production and spin up the program with all new avionics and weapons.
