T-50-11 had its first flight today, a surprise out of nowhere. It jumped past T-50-10 as it is still being worked on. T-50-11 is the last prototype, after it serials frames...

 

4 frames in under 1.5 years, they are finally picking up steam. Also, bonus pic of T-50-9 i stumbled upon at MAKS;

Is it true that the production model is to be designated Su-57 ?

That designation was revealed by Piotr Butowski and he is a very respected journalist often able to get very interesting information on secret Russian programs. And right before MAKS this year there were rumors that the Su-XX designation would be stated publicly. That never happened but considering these two facts; it is highly likely he is correct and that Su-57 is indeed the serial designation.

The new designation is now officially Su-57. Link (in Russia, but google translate or similar should work):

In short: In an interview with Zvezda TV, the Chief of the Russian Air Force, Colonel General Victor Bondarev, announced that the production aircraft received the designation Su-57.

In deed! Took me about 30 seconds to realize that equation though.

More likely 27 + 30 = 57.  :)
