Tested In Syria, Eyeing the World, Russian 5th Generation SU-57 Jet Ready For MAKS-2019 Air Show

According to the Russian official, the SU-57 fighter jet has unique abilities and has all documentation for a display. “We are ready and are proposing this program to our Indian partners,” he noted.

The SU-57 is a fifth-generation multirole fighter designed to annihilate all kinds of ariel targets at long and short distances and hit the ground and naval targets, subduing enemy air defence systems.

The SU-57 took to the skies for the first time on January 29, 2010. Compared to its ancestors, the SU-57 combines the functions of an attack plane and a fighter jet while composite materials, innovative technologies and the fighter’s aerodynamic configuration ensure a low level of radar and infrared signature. The plane’s armament will include, in particular, hypersonic missiles. The fifth-generation fighter jet has been successfully tested in combat conditions in Syria.
