Two-seat version of Su-35 fighter will not be developed, ITAR-TASS reports with reference to Chief Designer, Igor Demin.
"During development of Su-35 we have placed a bet on development of single-seat aircraft", - Demin said.
President of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Mikhail Pogosyan, reported earlier that Su-35 fighter is complemented by two-seat Su-30SM jet, which may be used as an operational trainer.
"Su-30SM is the two-seat aircraft derived from the export version of the jet. It complements Su-35, because it features a thrust-vectoring nozzle and new functional capabilities provided by the advanced avionics suite", - Pogosyan said. According to him, Su-30M2 jets are used as an operational trainer for Su-27SM pilots due to shortage of trainer aircraft.
