Russia is Developing a 6th Generation, Pilotless Fighter Jet

“The sixth generation of aircraft will most likely be pilotless. Naturally, we are actively working on this,” Deinekin told the Russian newspaper, RIA Novosti in an interview.

He added that Moscow could not skip a generation and would therefore complete all its fifth-generation designs before moving onto the 6th generation fighters.

RIA Novosti noted that the former Air Force chief did not specify which of Russia’s defense companies was involved in the project. It did speculate that MiG and Sukhoi might collaborate on the project citing comments made by Russian defense and corporate officials in the past, and MiG’s work on the Skat design.

Shortly after taking over as MiG general director back in 2011, Sergey Korotkov told reporters that his company would collaborate with Sukhoi on a future unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) that was implied to be a sixth-generation aircraft.

Deinekin’s comments on the sixth-generation aircraft are only the beginning of what is likely to be an action-packed week for Russian aircraft.
