    The MiG-35 fighter incorporates some of the technical upgrades implemented in its predecessor, the MiG-29, as well as advanced technology typical of fifth-generation aircraft. At 1,000 kilometers, the new vehicle's combat range is twice that of the MiG-29.

    On Friday, Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG unveiled its cutting-edge brainchild – the 4++ generation multipurpose MiG-35 fighter jet.

    The MiG-35 fighter can participate in high-intensity conflicts, amid conditions where the enemy is engaged in aggressive air defense, and is capable of striking aerial and surface targets. The Russian Aerospace Forces will replace all light fighter aircraft with the new planes. The MiG-35 will master the use of laser weapons.

      Stunning bird, although wrong number, someone might mix it with unfortunate F35.
