reportage is home to the “Sputnik”, attempting with success to bring forth another ambitious project of the Russian aviation industry…
Even more so when the new fighter Î±ÎµÏÏƒÎ¿ÎºÎ¬Ï†Î¿Ï‚ comes from the history of design office “ÎœÎ¹ÎºÎ¿Î³Î¹Î¬Î½-Î“ÎºÎ¿ÏÏÎµÎ²Î¹Ï„Ï‚” (MiG), which in the last few years has lost the internal “war” against the rival, the office of Sukhoi and attempts to recover the lost ground.
