India and Russia to continue to work on the fighter FGFA


Russia and India will continue their co-development of a fifth-generation fighter plane after signing an experimental design contract, India’s defense minister said on Friday.
“The preliminary stage of the project was completed in June 2013 and the next phase of development will commence after we have signed off on the experimental design contract,” Manohar Parrikar said in a written answer to a pertinent question from two members of the lower house of parliament.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Aero India-2015 show in Bangalore in February the president of Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation, Yuri Slyusar, said that the main R&D work on the fifth-generation plane could start already before this year was out.
