Trials of Russia's 5th-generation fighter jet 'in full swing' - Air Force commander
ASHULUK, Astrakhan region. May 28 (Interfax-AVN) - Russia's T-50 fifth-generation fighter jet will outperform similar U.S. airplanes on all parameters, Russian Air Force Commander Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev told reporters on Thursday.
"It will be in no way worse than similar American planes such as F-22 and F-35. Rather, it will outperform them in almost all parameters," he said.
Trials of the new Russian fighter jet are "in full swing" today, Bondarev said.
"The airplane is demonstrating excellent performance. It has an excellent system of weapons against both land and air [targets]. The plane is practically invisible to radar," the commander said.
Cutting-edge technologies were used to design this aircraft, he said.
"The features given to it by its designers allow it to outperform all similar planes that already exist or will soon appear abroad," Bondarev said.
The new fighter jet has a maximum speed of more than Mach 2, the commander said.
"But it is not very important today. What counts most is its invisibility to radar, weapons and maneuverability," the commander said.

The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
