    MOSCOW, December 12th. / TASS /.

    The fifth generation engine for light fighters can be developed on the basis of the RD-33 installed on the MiG-29 fighter. About this in an interview with the TV channel "Star" said the executive director of JSC "ODK-Klimov" Alexander Vatagin.

    “The RD-33 engine still has potential, and a more modern engine can be created on its basis, which can be attributed to fifth-generation engines with a load of up to 11 tons. We are working on this,” said Vatagin.

    "The main requirement for fifth-generation fighter engines is the ability to develop a supersonic cruise flight without using afterburner," he added.

    Earlier, the head of the state corporation "Rostec" Sergey Chemezov said that Russia and the United Arab Emirates will begin work on creating a joint fifth-generation light fighter based on the MiG-29 from 2018. Ilya Tarasenko, General Director of the Russian Aircraft Building Corporation (RSK) MiG, also noted that the fifth generation light fighter for the Russian Air Force will be developed in parallel with the project of a promising aircraft that Russia and the United Arab Emirates will create.

    On the MiG-29 fighter, two RD-33 engines are housed in nacelles in the rear fuselage. The gas turbine engine RD-33 is a two-shaft, double-circuit turbojet engine with an annular combustion chamber, an adjustable nozzle and a hydroelectronic control system. The maximum unforced for the RD-33K is 5400 kgf, at the afterburner 8,800 kgf, the maximum thrust (in emergency take-off mode) is 9,400 kgf. The engine is equipped with MiG-29 fighters and its latest modification of the MiG-35.

    Not even Su-57, but a "fifth-generation" version of MiG-29, should just buy F-35s.

    Why is that?
    This light fifth generation fighter-plane will benefit from the UAE know how from Western tech and the Russian tech know how, two first prototypes will be built, one in Russia and the other in the UAE..it is a very smart move to get the 5th generation tech to apply it to both 5th G drones and fighters in the UAE.. It is a JV and a win/win move..Quite interesting..
