"The MiG-35 is a 4++ generation plane. It is equipped with powerful weapons and advanced onboard equipment. It has aroused extreme envy in our rivals," Shugayev said at the MAKS 2017 international airshow.

"We will actively promote the plane. Its export certificate and relevant documents are ready," he added.

According to him, Russia’s Rosoboronexport state arms seller is cooperating with the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and the MiG Corporation to promote the fighter jet on the market.

It was reported earlier that the plane would be shown to the public for the first time at the MAKS 2017 airshow.

It performed its first flight in early 2017.
