The emergence of the export version of the Russian fifth generation fighter, the su-57 would destroy the monopoly of the American F-35 Lightning II, says Sohu.
“Many countries, warring with the United States will be able to purchase the fifth-generation aircraft, and the Americans will have to think twice before sending its troops there”, — says the publication of the Chinese portal.
The publication notes that the likely buyers of the su-57 can be India, Indonesia, Algeria, Vietnam and Venezuela, which will have “patience”, waiting for a test fighter.
In July, air chief Marshal of the Indian air force Birender Singh Dhanoa said that his country is ready to consider with the purchase of the su-57 after it will be adopted in the Russian Armed forces.
In April 2018 Jane’s 360 reported that India has suspended cooperation with Russia on the FGFA project (Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft), involving the creation on the basis of the su-57 India’s first fifth generation fighter.
