The stealth fight­er is being co devel­oped by India and Rus­sia togeth­er.

Unit­ed Air­craft Cor­po­ra­tion (UAC) is cur­rent­ly test­ing three tech­nol­o­gy demon­stra­tor fight­ers. A fourth will be brought in this year.

The first pro­duc­tion vari­ant of the T-50 will enter ser­vice with the Russ­ian Air Force by 2015, and the first eval­u­a­tion exam­ple by 2013. The eval­u­a­tion ver­sion of the fight­er will be ful­ly loaded with weapons and the fight­er will under­go exten­sive weapons tri­als in that peri­od before enter­ing into full ser­vice. The Russ­ian air force plans to acquire 60 of the fifth-gen­er­a­tion fight­ers.

The T-50, also known as project PAK-FA, first flew on Jan­u­ary 29, 2011 and was first pub­licly revealed at the Moscow Air Show in August that year. India will also acquire these advanced fight­er air­craft based on the T-50. The Indi­an vari­ant will be slight­ly dif­fer­ent because of dif­fer­ent threat per­cep­tions of these two coun­tries.
