    Russia will place an order for the Mikoyan MiG-35 ‘Fulcrum F’ multirole fighter aircraft in the first half of 2013, the CEO of Mikoyan believes.

    “We hope to sign a contract in the first half of 2013,†Sergei Korotkov stated in an interview published on Mikoyan’s website on 23 April.

    “Negotiations are under way [for a MiG-35 order] and are at an advanced stage,†Korotkov added, continuing that “we are counting on the fact that they will be completed this year, [with] the conclusion of the contract.â€

    Mikoyan has long been seeking an order for its MiG-35, the latest variant of its ‘Fulcrum’ fighter stable, derived from the original MiG-29, which first entered service in 1983. However, the company has seen far less success with its offerings than rival Sukhoi, which has seen continued domestic and export success with its Sukhoi Su-27 ‘Flanker’ and derivative aircraft to the point analysts have questioned whether Mikoyan will be able to maintain its operations.

    Mikoyan, historically a design bureau, is currently in the process of merging with aircraft factory Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft Plant ‘Sokol’, where the MiG-35 is planned to be built when a production order is received.

    AKHTUBINSK (Astrakhan Region, south Russia), May 7 (RIA Novosti) - Tests of Russia’s fifth-generation T-50 fighter jets in the Chkalov state flight test center in Akhtubinsk, Astrakhan Region in south Russia may start in July, Air Force Commander Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev said.

    “In two months,â€￾ he said Monday when asked when the center would start tests of such jets, adding that the first serial fifth-generation jet may be manufactured in 2014-2015.

    United Aircraft Corporation President Mikhail Pogosyan said in April Russia will start state flight tests of the T-50 in 2014.

    The fighter jets will enter service with the country’s armed forces in 2016, and not 2015 as was previously announced, President Vladimir Putin said at a live Q&A session with the Russian public in April.

    The Defense Ministry had earlier said the jet would be ready in 2015


    The T-50, also known as PAK-FA (future tactical fighter aircraft), first flew in January 2010 and was presented to the public at the Moscow Air Show in 2011.

    The T-50, which will be the core of Russia's future fighter fleet, is a fifth-generation multirole fighter aircraft featuring elements of stealth technology, super-maneuverability, super-cruise capability (supersonic flight without use of afterburner), and an advanced avionics suite including an X-band active phased-array radar.

    Bondarev also said some 60-70 military airfields will be built or reconstructed for Russia’s Air Force by 2020.
