The Aerospace Forces (VKS) of Russia will receive two production Su-57 fighters this year, RIA Novosti reports, citing a source in the aircraft industry.

"By the end of 2021, the second and third serial aircraft of the fifth generation Su-57 will be transferred to the Russian Armed Forces," RIA Novosti quotes its source.

It is noted that the machines will go for testing at the State Flight Test Center (GLITs) in Akhtubinsk.

According to the source, it was previously planned to transfer four Su-57s to the troops for the current year.

Earlier, the military observer of "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Colonel in reserve Viktor Baranets spoke about the capabilities of the Su-57 fighter in conjunction with drones.

man this program is moving slow and has issue.

they have had working test planes since 2009. it is now 2021 and they are still working out the bugs.

it took 9 years for the F22, F35B & J20 to enter full combat operational status, 10 for F35A, 13 years for the F35C.


at this rate it going to take another 5 or 7 years to get 1 unit fully combat operational.

I wonder if the ROK & UK 5th Gen fighters will be ready before Russia.
