    They have other aircraft they use as testbeds Su-30, SU-27 and few other, even bort numbers are known. I never tho heard of that prototype flying before as testbed or anything. I mean, maybe it did, i just never heard of it.

    we know that mig 1.44 mfi prorotype is still flying around doing testing.
    No, MiG 1.44 made only two very short flights in 2000, with private money from MiG, and never again. Su-47 (S-37) is the one which has made many flights recently, especially testing the weapons bay for the T-50.
