KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - The United Aircraft Corporation plans to launch a second production line to assemble 5th generation fighters T-50 at the Gagarin aviation plant. The second production line will be mounted in the shop, where Russian generation 4++ air-superiority multipurpose jet fighter Su-35 is assembled, Head of the United Aircraft Corporation Mikhail Pogosyan told Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who visited this production on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the first shop of antiradar coating, which brings down substantially the radar visibility is expected to be commissioned in 2014, the second shop - in 2015.
“All this should reduce considerably the labour intensity by 2.5 times for T-50 and 3.6 times for Su-35," the official said.
The prospective airborne complex of frontline aviation, which is also known as the 5th generation fighter T-50, will be put into service of the Russian Air Force starting from 2017. “I believe that we will finalize the fighter before 2017, probably even earlier. If everything goes on normally, the programme (of trials) will probably be curtailed, but from 2017 we plan to buy these warplanes and deliver them to our Air Force formations,” Commander of the Air Force Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev said at the airshow MAKS-2013 last August.
The pilot model of the prospective airborne complex of frontline aviation will be delivered to the Air Force for trials at the end of this year, meanwhile, all its weapons passed all flight trials, the commander noted.
