Video - Russia's 5G PAK-FA T-50 fighter debuts with stunt program at MAKS-2015.(RT).
Russia’s first 5G fighter has showed off in full its ultra-maneuverability at an international air show near Moscow. In 2016 the Russian Air Force will get ready to put the first production models of the stealth fighter jet into service.
