India Still With Fifth-generation Fighter Aircraft Project: Russian Defence Aviation Major


The president of Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), which encompasses the companies making the legendary Sukhoi and MiG jets, has claimed that India is still on board the project to make the fifth-generation fighter aircraft (FGFA). According to UAC president Yuri Slyusar, Russia is still in talks with India for jointly developing a fifth-generation fighter which will be in service with the air forces of both the countries.

“We continue to discuss with India joint development of a fifth-generation fighter jet. The topic is not closed. It has been said that India is withdrawing from this project. No, they are not. I hope very much our talks will be ultimately crowned by the designing stage and we will develop our joint fifth-generation aircraft,” Slyusar told the Rossiya-1 television channel. Read more
