The SU-35, the cutting-edge jet fighter of the four-plus-plus generation, will go in mass production from as early as 2013, Bondarev added.

The PAKFA T-50, built by the major Russian aircraft manufacturer Sukhoi, conducted its maiden flight in January 2010. The fighter combines the capabilities of a frontline bomber with an interceptor and employs stealth technology that makes the plane nearly invisible to enemy early warning systems.

The SU-35 fighter makes up about half of Russian arms exports. Russia sells the planes to more than 30 countries.
