    it could be the Mil V-12 largest helicopter in the world, the Sukhoi T-60S, the Mikoyan Project 1.44, or the Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut

    For me, either the MiG 1.44 or the Yak-141 (this one went beyond the prototype stage, was almost fully developed and ready to enter mass production when it was cancelled).

    The single engined Flanker Su-54/55 would have been a great addition to many airforces if the program actually happened. Essentially, would be a cheaper flanker and would have been useful especially to various countries, even India now with its single engine fighter jet competition.

    Oh well.

    I would have to say the T-4MS... swing wing supersonic bomber than never was...

    Is often shown these days as what the PAK DA might look like but the design was rejected as impractical before the Tu-160 design was chosen.
