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been repealed!!??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
assignment!

Lift is irrelevant now!!!! Its all in the thrust component!

All you need is thrust!

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.
