MiG 35

The MiG-35, designed to replace MiG-29s rounding out their fourth decade in service, will be featured at the MAKS international airshow near Moscow in July as engineers finalize testing on the aircraft

The MiG-35 has been in development for well over a decade, with the first reported demonstration flight at the Aero India Air Show in Bangalore in 2007

Some 5th generation technologies include stealth capabilities, extreme maneuverability, and increased power: 12 percent more than previous models1

Unlike many advanced fighters, the MiG-35 will also be extremely rugged, designed to withstand heavy anti-aircraft fire and operate in austere conditions

It’s rumored MiG is working on a fifth-generation light fighter. Sukhoi, Russia’s manufacturer of heavy fighter jets, has been working on its own fifth-gen offering, PAK FA, since before 2010, with the introduction of the aircraft reportedly slated for 2019. But if the rumors are true, the future project would be a first for MiG.
