I've been laughing all weekend with that picture of the screws on the end piece of the wing which has practially gone viral in an attempt to keep up discrediting the Su-57 and Russian workmanship.
The truth is that first of all, that aircraft is one of the prototypes still undergoing testing, and that end piece to the wing was actually damaged on one of the flights and had to be replaced. Notice the yellow replacement end on the left wing? So naturally there will be some left over damage which is why they test and test and test until the cows come home.

Now look at the overall finished product of of one of the prototypes that is almost ready for completion stage. And absolute beauty.

The same can be said about the F-22. Most of the time that aircraft is in tip top condition, but every once in a while you can spot the beating it's apt to take on occasion. Does that mean it's inferior workmanship to the Russians?

Just different/planform aligned wings and tail, and an internal bay. The least they could have done was copy the YF-23 a little better. It’s on public display out in California for anyone to see. (I got a good chance to see it up close and personal on my last trip out there. )
You see, this is what I was talking about. To think the Su-57 doesn't have any composites is mind boggling. As a Russian, things like this must be pretty frustrating for you, but you need to have thick skin and just laugh and shrug them off like you always seem to do, lol.Who told you there are no composite materials in Su-57? Around 25% of the structural weight and almost 70% of the outer surface are made of composites. It may be even bigger in coming 2nd stage jets.
Technically RD-93MA is sold to China which resells to Pakistan. There is no direct contract between Russia and Pakistan.Good for Russia. Russia has rarely ever shared or sold its engine/technology to other nations but it has to Pakistan the latest version of the RD-93MA for the JF-17B3.
I hope one day this engine can be used in future PAF projects
You are only 7 years late betaTechnically RD-93MA is sold to China which resells to Pakistan. There is no direct contract between Russia and Pakistan.
Probably Turkish propaganda told them that Turkey is the only country in the world that has composites for aircrafts and which are used to make super duper and invincible Turkish drones everyone are jealous aboutWho told you there are no composite materials in Su-57?
