Russia’s Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant, a subsidiary of Sukhoi will deliver three T-50 (PAK FA) fifth-generation multirole fighters to Russia's Ministry of Defence (MoD) in 2017.

"The work on the T-50 aircraft will be continued and three aircraft will be built. They will join the final level of the first stage of trials," Deputy Defence Minister Yuri Borisov said on 9 March during a working trip to the Far East and Siberia.

"The planned trials program is a continuous one," Boriso added.

The first level of trials of the T-50 are due to be finished in 2018 and that serial production of the aircraft under Russia's new rearmament programme can only be discussed after its completion, an official said.
