Russia will display its much hyped fifth-generation fighter prototype, the T-50, at an air show in August, according to a document posted on the official legal information portal http://pravo.gov.ru on Friday.

The jet, as well as other warplanes, including the Tupolev Tu-95MS, a modification of the Tu-95 Bear strategic bomber, will be shown at a festival dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Russia’s Air Force, on August 11-12 near the town of Zhukovsky in the Moscow Region.

The fighter was first shown to the public in August 2011, also in Zhukovsky, at the MAKS-2011 air show.

The T-50 made its maiden flight in January 2010 and two prototypes have since been undergoing flight tests.

The T-50, developed under the PAK FA program (Future Aviation System for Tactical Air Force) at the Sukhoi experimental design bureau, is Russia's first new major warplane designed since the fall of the Soviet Union.

It is expected to enter service in 2016.
