The plane is still under development and as of 2008, there are 10 prototypes built. The MiG-35 was first officially presented by MiG Corporation during the Aero India 2007 air show.


The MiG-35 is classed as a medium-weight aircraft that can perform multiple roles. Among its many counterparts are the Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon, F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, and the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
