Russian Su-57s have been hiding for months at the Khmeimim airbase in Syria


Russian Su-57 fighters could be in Syria for months.

Russian Su-57 fighters can be located on the territory of the Khmeimim airbase constantly, testing their capabilities in a real combat situation against jihadists. This is possible thanks to the arrangement of the Russian military airfield with the construction of hangars, and experts pay attention to the fact that we can talk about a dozen fifth-generation combat aircraft, since the number of erected shelters allows this to be successfully implemented.

Analysts, in turn, note that at the moment Russia does not have a large number of fifth-generation fighters, however, 1-2 Su-57 combat aircraft can constantly be in Syria.

“It is important to understand that all Su-57s built in Russia so far are pre-production. Without real testing in a combat situation, launching the release of Su-57 fighters does not make sense, and therefore it is logical to assume that these Russian aircraft can be in Syria not only for days, but also for weeks or even months, hiding from American reconnaissance spacecraft. ”, - the expert marks.

It should be clarified that a few days earlier it became known that the Su-57 was again tested in a real combat situation, which, by the way, is possible only in Syria, but so far no confirmation has been received.
