New Generation Aircraft from Russia 16 August, 2019

Russia plans to complete the MiG-41 project in 2019. Russia has been working on a new platform project since 2018. "Our future MiG-41 fighter will be able to fly into space,” said Ilia Tarassenko, CEO of the Russian aircraft manufacturer Mikoyan-Gourevitch. Tarasenko has revealed that the project is due to be completed by 2019 and he also stated that “the aircraft will use new types of weapons and can carry a large volume of weapons.”

The device would reach a speed of 3.675 kilometres per hour.

The MiG-41 will be able to shoot down hypersonic missiles according to the former commander of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Viktor Bondarev. He will be the fastest plane in his class, he says.

 

The platform, known as also PAK DP, will replace MiG-31 (NATO Code: Foxhound) aircraft that are nearing the end of their life.
