    MiG-35 equal to U.S. F-35: Russia

    The Russian military will use new MiG-35D multirole fighters as an equal to the U.S. F-35 fighters, the Air Force chief said on Tuesday.

    "We have not given up on the MiG-35D aircraft project, but we will transfer to the T-50 [heavy fighter] in the future," Gen. Alexander Zelin, the Russian Air Force commander, said during his visit to the six-day air show MAKS-2011 that opened near Moscow on Tuesday.

    The U.S. Air Force began using the F-22 fifth generation fighter in the 2000s. America is now developing a lighter and less expensive version, the F-35.

    The MiG-35 is an advanced derivative of the MiG-29, which uses air-to-air and air-to-surface guided missiles and the Zhuk A radar (Zhuk AE in exports).

    canopy and air intakes are too big.....maybe they should extend the air intakes further towards the nose and while narrowing them at the same time

    like US hi-lo mix of F-22 and F-35, they will be using hi-lo mix of T-50 and mig-35D.

    i think Russia are under estimate the f-35
    which is highly advance aircraft
    if mig-35 is =f-35 than why Indian had not choose it
    although they point out 14 defects in it
    the only option for mig-35 for export is Pakistan but we are not interested in it

    The F-35 was not a part of the Indian MMRCA program.

    This could be just a marketing stunt, Russian style :D I mean, it doesn't even have any retractable weapons.

    It'd be fairer to compare the MiG-35 to the Rafale.

    The is MIG 35 is really an awesome beast, no doubt about it, with 2 mid air refueling it took less than 2.5 hrs to reach Banglore from Moscow. What ever the IAF found as defects the Russians can take a note of them and if they feel the IAF comments are valid, should work on the same to deliver some thing new out of this beast.
