The Russian-Indian production of a fifth-generation fighter is estimated at 25 billion dollars
Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikara believes it is possible to take a new fighter into service with the Indian Air Force well before the originally designated date - 2024-2025 years - the Indian channel NDTV reports.
In order to accelerate the work on the creation of a fifth-generation fighter, it is possible to skip the stage of carrying out new research and development work on the aircraft, as several prototypes of a fifth-generation fighter are already being tested in Russia.
The cost of the project to create an airplane is estimated at 25 billion dollars. At the moment, Russia and India have already agreed on the preliminary design of the aircraft. Delhi plans to build 127 new aircraft at the aircraft plant in the city of Nashik.
