ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), August 28 (Itar-Tass) - First test-launches of missiles from a promising aviation complex of the frontline aviation, which is also known as a 5th generation fighter, may be made already before the end of this year, Director General of Tactical Missiles Corporation Boris Obnosov said at the international aerospace show MAKS-2013 on Wednesday.
“We have already made several products to conduct tests onboard the fighter,” he said. This is an inboard missile X-58, Obnosov said. However, “we need a well-tested warplane, which we will be able to use for the tests of weapons,” the general director added. “All of you saw the aviation complex of the frontline aviation in the flight. Probably this year we will begin the tests of weapons onboard this warplane,” he noted.
The tests of missiles for the 5th generation fighter are being made onboard an airborne laboratory of the corporation.
