Wait and see how the MCA rolls out of assembly line
The PAK-FA (aka T-50) is your MCA, manoj!
From the lateral-perspective or shop-drawing, the PAK-FA clearly show gene traces associated with your "tailess" MCA, a features which defies the physics of aerodynamics (you can't keep a plane stable without a tail) hence the extreme low angled tails were likely recommended by the Russians if the program take form...
My speculation of the long speculative MCA program is this: You are having great difficulties with your LCA. To this day, while your LCA is "somewhat" in the production stages, it however has not yet advanced to serial production stages and that indicates technical complications -- complications which naturally would reflect on the MCA program well...
Therefore, what is the most efficient and/or the most speedy de'gonzalas options which are available to you, now, to keep pace with the rest of the modern world without spending an arm and a leg on R&D?
"Join ventures, manoj! Yes, joint ventures as the PAK-FA!!!
But, don't get me wrong however. I mean there's absolutely nothing wrong or shameful about joint ventures. In fact, we Chinese had wrote the book on joint ventures ever since the 70's so don't feel left out, manoj. Here's a tidbit of what sort of a joint venture that we Chinese had been involved with in past Flash: http://www.chnqiang.com/article/2010/1025/mil_30678.shtml .
BTW, "S" should stand for "super". In other words the project is likely the long talked about joint Super-7 deal worked out between "China, Grumman, and Pakistan in the 70's. The program had since evolved into today's FC-1/JF-17. Other joint ventures we Chinese are engaged is the K-8.
Back in '04, manoj, when GW offered you F-18's and later the more agile F-16 as barter for you join in "in his China Encirclement Program", we Chinese were good sported enough to offer you assistance in the finalization of the development of your LCA which you were having great difficulties [Size=-4](I see the offer as a gesture of China's peaceful attitudes towards South Asia. Too bad you choose to play the part of GW's underwear instead of that of a fellow Asian State). That deal is still open I think.
But why had we Chinese offered to assist you in the development of a fighter jet intended to be used against ourselves, a question you and others probably would raise. The answer, IMO, is that we were confident[./u] you won't cross over the Himalayan ranges -- "not even if we do swept down the western Himalayan foothills again, a prospect which is unlikely to happen because China is about diplomacy's now days, and -- it's because we doubt you guys would be that impulsive!
Yes, manoj. The PA-FA is youir MCA...
