    Russia will begin churning out advanced MiG-35 multipurpose jets in 2019.

    LUKHOVITSY (Moscow Region), (Sputnik) — Serial production of Russia's advanced MiG-35 multirole fighters will begin in 2019 following flight tests, the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) head told Sputnik on Friday.

    "In 2019 we plan to launch the MiG-35 into series. Until then there will be flight tests which will be completed by that time," UAC President Boris Slyusar said.

    The Russian MiG-35 (NATO reporting name Fulcrum-F) is a 4++ generation jet, which has been created with the use of technical decisions used in the MiG-29M/M2 and MiG-29K/KUB aircraft and new advanced technologies.
