The Sukhoi Su-57 is a fifth-generation multirole combat aircraft which crashed during manufacturer’s trials, according to media reports. The pilot was not injured in the accident.

According to the Eastern Military District’s press service, none of the military units in the region have Su-57 fighter jets in service. A special commission has been established to investigate the causes of the Su-57 fighter jet crash in Russia’s Khabarovsk Region, the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation informed TASS.

The corporation confirmed that a Su-57 fighter jet had crashed today in Komsomolsk-on-Amur during a test flight 111 km away from the base airfield.

The fifth-generation Su-57 fighter is designated to destroy all types of air, ground and naval targets. The aircraft develops supersonic cruising speed, carries armament inside its fuselage, features stealth coating and the latest onboard equipment.

With the crash, the Russian fighter jet could have an adverse impact on potential sales.  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had examined the Su-57 fighter jet that was showcased at the MAKS 2019 air show.

Chengdu J20 – Russian Design, Stolen Technology from F-35?

Turkey began considering the Russian Su-35 jets after the United States refused to supply the F-35 stealth fighter jets to Ankara after the country took delivery of Russian-made S-400 missile systems.

The Su-35 is not a stealth fighter, like Russia’s developmental Su-57. The Su-57 project is years behind schedule, and expectations have been downgraded several times in recent years. The Russian Air Force has focused on more Su-35 procurements while delaying the Su-57.
