“We are actively interacting with the customer. A significant advantage of the Su-57’s two-seat version can be new tactical capabilities when operating with UAVs, which allows obtaining a synergetic effect when performing special tasks,” Slyusar said.

The Su-57 is a fifth-generation Russian-made multifunctional fighter designed to destroy all types of air, ground and surface targets. It has supersonic cruising speed, internal armament, radar-absorbing coating, as well as the latest onboard equipment. The Russian Aerospace Force will receive 22 Su-57 fighters by late 2024. Their number will be increased to 76 by 2028. The first fighter was delivered to the Russian troops in 2020.

The Army 2022 international military-technical forum is running on August 15-21 at the Patriot exhibition center outside Moscow. The Defense Ministry is the organizer of the forum.
