MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. Russian United Aircraft Corporation will supply to the Air Force Sukhoi PAK FA T-50 fifth-generation fighters in 2016, the corporation’s press service told TASS on Monday.
"We shall begin the supplies in 2016, according to the schedule," the corporation said.
The fighters are produced in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
Compared to the previous generation fighters PAK FA possesses a number of unique features combining the functionality of both attack aircraft and fighter plane. The 5th generation fighter is equipped with brand-new avionics suite integrating "electronic pilot" functionality, as well as advanced phased-array antenna radar. This significantly decreases pilot load to allow focusing upon completion of tactical missions. New aircraft on-board equipment allows real-time data exchange not only with ground based control systems, but also within the flight group.
