The cost of the Russian fifth generation fighter has been announced - the Su-LTS is 5 times cheaper than the F-35


The cost of the Russian fifth-generation light fighter Su-LTS has been announced.

The head of the state corporation "Rostec" Sergei Chemezov revealed the cost of the newest Russian light fighter of the fifth generation, passing under the name of the Su-LTS. Despite initially appearing data that this combat aircraft will have a cost of 60-70 million dollars, it turned out that the real price of a fifth-generation combat fighter is much lower - about 25-30 million dollars, which is 5-6 times lower the cost of the American F-35 fighter.

“This is a fifth generation lightweight fighter. Such analogs exist in our world. These are the F-35, the Gripen, and the Rafale. Only we have set ourselves the task of making a very cheap and efficient aircraft. We will have a price, I hope, somewhere from $ 25 to $ 30 million, and they will have from $ 60 to $ 90 million "- said Sergey Chemezov.

In fact, today it is the fifth generation fighter with the lowest cost, which will allow it to compete with any foreign combat aircraft. According to experts, due to such a cost, we can talk about a thousand orders for Russian Su-LTS.

As for the combat functionality, the Su-LTS fighter does not lag behind the Su-57 fighter. Previously, it was concluded that, in fact, Russia is close to creating a sixth generation fighter, since the Su-LTS will be available in a shock drone configuration.
