Moscow: So far 11 projects to develop Fifth Generation Fighter Planes are underway across the globe. From South Korea to America, countries have been trying to outsmart each other in the race for the superior machine of the future- The Fifth Generation Fighter Plane.
So far, there is only one fifth generation plane that is ready for warfare, i.e. America's F-22 Raptor.
Russia's PAK FA is currently being developed by Sukhoi OKB. The PAK FA present s a real and clear danger to America's F-22 and F-35 (currently under development).
Russian-built PAK FA has out rightly challenged America's supremacy in the arena of Fifth Generation Plane.
Once developed, it will replace Russia's ageing fleet of MiG fighter planes. Incidentally, India's very own Fifth Generation Fighter plane will be developed jointly in collaboration with Russian program. Named as FGFA (Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft), Russia will provide 250 planes by the end of the project as per the deal.
