Umm,are you saying that the laws of aerodynamics have nothing to do with aircraft(or anything) looking similar??????
What, are you smoking Thai weed again?
Weren’t you at the lecture what said that the laws of aerodynamics have
been repealed!!?? And no! Don’t ask me for my notes or the homework
Lift is irrelevant now!!!! Its all in the thrust component!

Sorry I do not know how to enter link. Unbelievable footage.
Not to the point where two independently-designed aircraft will look identical to each other (and this one doesn't look identical to any U.S. aircraft that I know of).
As is the case in many things, there is more than one path to the same desired result. The odds of two aircraft being independently designed from the same set of performance requirements looking identical to each other are slim to none. Those Russian aircraft that did strongly resemble U.S. hardware were copies, plain and simple.
