Indo-Russian 5th Gen Fighter Only By 2020
Projections on when the Indo-Russian fifth generation fighter aircraft (FGFA) will enter service fully certified has slipped three years to 2020, visiting Russian defence minister Anatoly Serdyukov said at a press conference in Delhi today. Until last year, the IAF had said it expected the aircraft to begin inductions by 2017. The IAF is looking to acquire 214 FGFAs (which I now hear will be almost entirely or entirely comprised of single-seaters). HAL recently revealed the wind-tunnel model of the modified Indian single-seat version of the aircraft.
