Aircrafts like the F-22 were eagerly awaited by those who believed that their data will become available at some point.

Oh come on! . Bort numbers do not indicate directly the number of aircraft built - especially not for prototypes ones.

E.g the initial version of the MiG-29K was made in two prototypes - bort #311 and 312, for which the first two digits "31" indicate the variant(9.31) and the last digit the first and second one built....i.e. 9.31-1 and 9.31 -2 respectively.

So doesn't mean there were 312 made .

Another example was with the pre-production Su-33s - IIRC these were numbered 37, 39, 59, 69,79, 89, 99 and 109.

I don't know what(if anything) the Ka-50 borts denote or even exactly how many were built. But as far as I recall it was something like 10 or 12, which would also be in line with the typical number for a test batch.

Well the first one was 010. It seems everyone is sure that 12 were made by 1994, there were further orders but most places seem to say they can’t 100% sure any were delivered past those 12 despite further orders.

I spent most of my time looking here http://www.aviastar.org/helicopters_eng/ka-50.php

“Four for Russian Army service trials, plus eight flying prototype and pre-series helicopters; all delivered. Further 10 ordered in 1997 budget and six in 1998, of which first three were due for delivery before end of 1998; initial helicopter eventually completed in June 1999, two more being due by mid-2000. By early 2003, it was still unclear if helicopters from the first batch of 10 had been delivered to Army Aviation. Two operational Ka-50s shown at Moscow Salon in August 2001 may have been repainted trials aircraft.”

“ Further army evaluation followed when first two of four production Ka-50s were funded in 1994 and officially accepted on 28 August 1995; third and fourth received in 1996; these four numbered 20 to 23 (prompting pre-series 021 to be renumbered 024 to avoid confusion). Arsenyev production was to have increased to one per month during 1997, but this did not occur. The original Ka-50 (and rival Mi-28A) were overtaken by the issue of a revised requirement which emphasised night capability - favouring the two-seat Mi-28. The initial order for 15 Ka-50s was reportedly cancelled in September 1998, with procurement postponed until 2003.”

I’m overdue for some Shark time, can’t wait for the new pit, a lot of people would be happy if this new plane ended up being Ka-52, I mean they’re already making president-s, ground radar and FLIR API, it would fit

Sorry Teknetium I was wrong, shouldn’t have trusted the first number I saw online. I love the Terminator all the same, always wondered why even Su-35BM didn’t run with the rear radar idea, the tail stinger is perfect for a R-77 seeker

an Unmanned aircraft module perhaps


Not something that most people consider, but it would be a milestone as its never been done before, and also take advantage of new upcoming technologies like A/G radar, FLIR.

After binging this whole thread in the past few days, it seems to me that a full-fidelity redfor jet is the thing by far most eagerly awaited, and "we have resolved the legal issues that prevented it" would certainly constitute a milestone.

In fact I'm having a very hard time imagining what else would meet BOTH criteria. The Apache seems to be the second-most wanted aircraft--going by this thread, at least--but I don't see how it would constitute a milestone with one attack helo already available and another well on the way. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it also doesn't meet the third criteria, that it be something not already announced.

I can think of a couple other things that would qualify as a milestone, but none that I've seen a lot of people clamoring for--drones, for instance, as Kev2go mentioned. And plenty of aircraft that a lot of fans want, but I can't see them as milestones. For instance, with the F-14 already available, what about the F-111 would be a milestone? Or the F-4, for that matter? Unless you broaden the definition of "milestone" until any new aircraft qualifies.

Am I missing something? What else would be "eagerly awaited", "a huge milestone", "brain-melting", and not previously announced?

As someone said - F-15 would 'complete the set', which would be a milestone, and is itself pretty eagerly awaited (though not by me... Su-27S (SM? SM is already 'past') or Su-25A (SM would also be nice, but is 'current')

How many side-by-side multicrew aircraft do we have? Medium-range dedicated strike aircraft?
