NATO gave the the Su-57 a name.

It couldn't be better even if the late Tom Clancy were to have written it, and we have to believe he is smiling down from the tactical high ground of the afterlife.

However, due to NATO nomenclature which requires fighters to start with "F", would that be "failbird"?
