MOSCOW, Aug 16-RIA Novosti. Rostec is ready to consider the possibility of helping Turkey in the development of a fifth-generation fighter with the appropriate request from Ankara, said the general director of the state corporation Sergey Chemezov in an interview with the Anadolu news agency.

"We also know that Turkey intends to implement the project of its own fifth-generation fighter TF-X. Having unique competencies in the development and production of aircraft complexes and their systems, we can consider the possibility of assisting Turkish partners in creating a new fighter," Chemezov said; this quote was provided to RIA Novosti by the Rostec press service.

Currently, the Russian army receives a fifth-generation Su-57 fighter. In addition, the Sukhoi Design Bureau has developed a project of a light single-engine fighter of the fifth generation Checkmate (in the Russian Aerospace Forces in the future it can go as the Su-75).

In addition to the Sukhoi, the Russian MiG Aircraft Corporation (also part of the UAC) is developing its fifth-generation fighter. A large-scale model of the future fighter was presented by the company as part of the MAKS-2021 air show. The promising aircraft, about the size of the MiG-29, will be made according to the "duck" aerodynamic scheme, rarely used in the history of domestic manned combat aviation - the horizontal tail of such aircraft is located not in the tail, but in the nose, in front of the wing. It is planned that the first prototypes of the fighter will take to the air in the next few years.
