Meanwhile, 6th generation fighters are expected to replace 4th and 5th generation fighters in the United States only in the 2030s, media reported.
Mikhailov noted that requirements to a warplane of next sixth generation were just being defined. “Now this is sooner a matter of science than design,” the corporation’s official said.
US companies Boeing and Lockheed-Martin are developing 6th generation fighters in the US, media reported. These fighters are expected to replace 5th generation fighters F-22 Raptor which US military forces are armed with now and 4th generation deck fighters F/A-18E/F Super Hornet in the 2030s.
Russian Defense Ministry will receive around 100 warplanes in 2014 and more than 15 warplanes will be delivered to foreign customers before the end of this year, head of the directorate of military aviation programmes in the United Aircraft Corporation Vladimir Mikhailov said
“Around 100 warplanes are planned to deliver within the state defence order in 2014. More than 15 warplanes will be supplied to foreign clients,” he told ITAR-TASS.
“In monetary terms I can only say about United Aircraft Corporation’s projects within the state defence order that the Defence Ministry has concluded long-term contracts with the corporation for many hundred billion roubles. They have already provided United Aircraft Corporation’s enterprises with stable load up to 2020,” Mikhailov added.
