MiG Ready to Participate in Creating Future Interceptor
Russian Aircraft Corporation “MiG” is ready to participate in creating the future fighter-interceptor, which should replace MiG-31 used today by the Russian Air Force, CEO Sergei Korotkov said on Thursday in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Last year, the Russian Air Force Commander Colonel-General Viktor Bondarev said that Russia in 2017 will begin work on creating long-term aviation complex for long-range interception (PAK DP), which in the future will replace the MiG-31.
“The work of this magnitude can be defined and organized only under the state program, in which the Russian Aircraft Corporation “MiG”, which has unrivaled experience in building interception complexes, could take part,” Korotkov said at the air show Aero India 2015.
As reported by the General Bondarev, in 2017 we will begin research work that will define the shape of the new machine. In 2025, he said, we will begin deliveries to the troops.
