India Keeping An Eye On Su-57 Jets As Russia Displays Its Export Version At MAKS-2019 Air Show

Published

on

In what may provide the Indian Air Force with another option to procure latest fighter jets, Russia will present the export versions of its latest fifth-generation Su-57E fighter jets at the MAKS-2019 air show.

India Can Consider Buying 5th Generation SU-57 Jet After It Enters The Russian Air Force – IAF Chief

Along with the Su-57 fighter jets, the IL-112VE light military transport aircraft will also be put on display at the aforementioned air show. The Indian Air Force which currently has a shortage of fighter jets squadron might just be keen to have a look at these latest multi-purpose fighters developed by Rosoboronexport. 

Alexander Mikheev, the CEO of the manufacturer stated that all the necessary documents required to export Su-57E are ready and the fighter jets could be readily attained by foreign buyers. The MAKS-2019 air show will be hosted by Moscow from August 27 to September 1. 

What does the Su-57E have to offer? 

The Sukhoi Su-57 is a modern-day beast with stealth capabilities. It is a single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation fighter jet being developed since 2002 for attaining air superiority over enemies.

The design has been deliberated upon keeping in mind features like supercruise, super manoeuvrability and stealth. The aircraft is expected to have a service life of around 35 years and will replace Su-27 and MiG-29 in the Russian Air Force after the development program is officially completed. 

Russia has already offered India to enter into a defence partnership for the co-development of Sukhoi Su-57 fighters. India which was initially a part of this co-development program had withdrawn from the joint venture in 2018 after Russia refused to share the source code of the jet’s mission software and flight systems. Will India reconsider its position on this being made time and again by Russia?
