As for stealth, I believe Russia has always maintained it wouldn't compromise kinematic performance for the PAK 50 FA in order to achieve maximum stealth.
More likely Russia deflecting due to it's inability to achieve the level of signature reduction found on the US 5Gen jets. Too bad the Indians apparently have different priorities.

Insufficient minimization of emissions would be a concern if this was the issue. I guess there is the possibility that Russia wasn't willing to incorporate their best kit into the joint project is another reason for unacceptable emissions. In any event, dealing with Indian military procurement is as bad as dealing with Canada's PWGSC and DND.

A group of guys have built a Yak 110 which is two Yak 55s joined together similar to the F-82 Twin Mustang. Quite impressive so far and they are planning to install a turbofan engine between the two Yak 55 fuselages.
