"We hope that the official munitions tests for the T-50’s cannon will be successfully completed this year," Chizhevsky said.

As previously announced, the initial batch of munitions for test-firing the T-50’s cannon will be delivered in 2017.

The PAK FA is a Russian fifth generation fighter jet that made its maiden flight in 2010. The first five T-50 fighter jets will become operational this year.
