In India spoke about the latest “nail in the coffin” for the su-57
Organization defense research and development of Ministry of defence of India abandoned the project FGFA (Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft), involving the creation on the basis of the su-57 India’s first fifth generation fighter, since Russia has no unique technologies, which are not from India, reports The Economic Times.
The publication writes that “nail in the coffin” of the project PAK FA (promising aviation complex tactical aviation) scored the Organization of defense research and development, which stated that possess all the unique technologies necessary for creating a fifth generation fighter, or are in the process of their development.
In April Janes has announced the release of India from FGFA. The reason for the collapse of the 11-year programme of the Indian air force called unbridgeable gap in technological and financial issues.
The programme of the FGFA was launched in 2007 and its main contractors have become “Dry” from the Russian side and Hindustan Aeronautics with the Indian. Countries agreed to create a fifth generation fighter for the Russian su-57. In the first stage of the program worth 295 million dollars was designed by the design of the Indian fighter, but then the FGFA project has not progressed because of the many differences that have arisen between the parties.
Russia considered the partnership with India on the creation of fifth generation fighter as the main source of funding for serial production of su-57.
