Nevertheless, experts believe that in reality, the serial Su-57 that existed in a single copy could be equipped with an unmanned control system, however, given the fact that similar systems had not been used on Russian aircraft before, it could have happened catastrophe.

Noteworthy is the fact that a similar version is considered by foreign experts.
