ZHUHAI (China), November 11. /TASS/. Russia is developing a prospective aviation complex for long-range aviation (PAK DA) - the country’s next-generation strategic bomber that is to make the first flight in 2019, President of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Mikhail Pogosyan said at the Airshow China 2014 International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition on Tuesday.

The strategic bomber’s state tests are planned for 2021, he said.

The next-generation bomber is developed by the Tupolev design bureau. The PAK DA delivery to the troops is expected to begin in 2023.

The Radio-Electronic Technology Concern (KRET) is already developing avionics for the future bomber, and the Tactical Missiles Corporation is developing weapons for it. In addition, the first stand tests of the engine prototype for the PAK DA bomber were held in Samara last week.
