The Russian fifth-generation T-50 fighter, currently being developed by Sukhoi, will exceed all rivals, according to Russian Air Force commander Colonel General Alexander Zelin.

The Russian Air Force will acquire 60 T-50s, which will be delivered from 2015 onwards.

The T-50 will feature low visibility, supersonic cruising speed and highly integrated control systems.

It will have a take-off weight of over 30t and have similar dimensions to the Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker.

The Sukhoi Design Bureau designed the current prototype of the T-50 and developed it at a plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur in Russia’s Far East.
