MOSCOW, August 21. /TASS/. The aircraft corporation MiG is working on the outlook of a new-generation interceptor for Russian aviation, MiG CEO Sergei Korotkov said on Friday.
"We’re conducting R&D, which helps determine the outlook of a long-range interceptor system. After the work is over, we’ll consider the issue of concluding a contract [with the Defense Ministry of Russia] on its development," the MiG chief said.
Meanwhile, Commander of the Russian Air and Space Defense Force Viktor Bondarev said the R&D work on creating a new interceptor to replace the Mikoyan MiG-31 (NATO reporting name: Foxhound) aircraft would begin no early than 2019.
