BANGALORE /India/, February 15. /TASS/. Trials of Russia’s advanced MiG-35 fighter jet are to be completed in the coming years, Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG chief Ilya Tarasenko told TASS Wednesday.
"They (the trials) have already begun and proceed successfully. They are to be over in coming years," he said.
The MiG-35 is Russia’s most advanced 4++-generation multipurpose fighter jet developed on the basis of the serial-produced MiG-29K/KUB and MiG-29M/M2 combat aircraft.
The fighter jet features improved flight and technical characteristics, the most advanced onboard radio-electronic equipment and a wide arsenal of air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles. The plane can develop a speed of 2.23 Mach and its operational radius exceeds the range of its predecessor MiG-29 by 50%
The flight tests of MiG-35 fighter aircraft began on January 26 and the plane’s international presentation was held in the Moscow Region on the following day.
The United Aircraft-Building Corporation (UAC) has signed a contract for the delivery of the first two aircraft to Russia’s Defense Ministry in 2017-2018, UAC President Yuri Slyusar said on Tuesday, February 14.
