The Sukhoi T-50 (PAK FA) - the name will change for the production aircraft - is a fifth-generation multirole, single seat, twin-engine air superiority/deep air support fighter slated to replace the Russian Air Force's fleet of MiG-29 and Su-27.

India and Russian Federation had inked an inter-governmental pact for the FGFA project in 2007.

The research and development work on Russia's PAK FA (Perspective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation) fighter jet (T-50) will be completed in 2019, United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Chief Yuri Slyusar said at the MAKS-2017 global airshow on Wednesday. Stage one is over. "The first stage of PAK FA trials will be over in December and eventually we will receive such planes", Bondarev said, according to TASS news agency. "And I think that in the near future, all decisions will be made and the contract documents will be signed", the CEO told journalists at the MAKS 2017 Air Show.

"But the work is going on, it is very complicated, so it is not going fast", he admitted.

Earlier this year, government sources in New Delhi confirmed all the preliminary work on the project, including critical issues, had been done.

The two sides hope to sign a detailed agreement on the design and development soon, though a deadline was not given. "This is the year when we should complete the R&D work on the PAK FA", he said. The official had said that both the countries are co- developers and India will have equal rights over the technology.

In 2007, India and Russian Federation had signed an inter-governmental agreement for the multi billion dollar FGFA project.

Since then, a number of issues have been sorted by the two sides with regards to work sharing, technology transfer and Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), along with financial commitments.

In December 2010, India agreed to pay United States dollars 295 million towards the preliminary design of the fighter, which is called in India as the "Perspective Multi-role Fighter" (PMF).

However, the negotiations faced several hurdles in the following years.

Chemezov also talked about Russia's own fifth generation fighter jet programme PAK FA.
