Launch of the Russian Raptor-like 5G Fighter

This morning, at the Far East Komsomolsk-on-Amur aircraft plant of Sukhoi Corp. the first experimental 47-minute flight of the Russian 5G fighter was implemented. The new fighter named T-50 is considered to have technical characteristics close to F-22 Raptor (stealth technology), it has been designed in the same Sukhoi company, which earlier developed Superjet-100 – a new Russian commercial aircraft.

The Sukhoi Corp. has an advanced design and engineering bureau which widely and systematically uses modern CAD-technologies; all recent releases of Sukhoi are based on full digital models and can soundly be characterized as PLM-based production.

An official Sukhoi press-release mentions that Air Force of India will be the first customer of the Russian T-50 series.
