Russia developing unmanned next-gen fighter
Russian designers are proceeding with development of an unmanned “sixthgeneration” fighter jet, former Air Force chief Pyotr Deinekin has said. “The sixth-generation of aircraft will most likely be pilotless. Naturally, we are actively working on this,” Deinekin said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Russia is currently testing its prototype fifth-generation Sukhoi T-50 fighter, a manned aircraft that made its first public appearance two years ago. The US is introducing its F-35, and European powers such as the UK and France have their Typhoon and Rafale fighters in service.
