Su-57s were used to attack terrorists in Syria

Russian Su-57s were baptized by fire in Syria.

Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces of Russia, Lieutenant General Sergei Dronov, said that the Su-57 fighters preparing to enter service with the Russian Aerospace Forces had passed combat tests in Syria. More precisely, we are talking about those combat aircraft that have already been transferred to the Russian Ministry of Defense (we are probably talking about both pre-production and production models - ed.). Taking into account the fact that close attention was paid to the serial model, it is logical to assume that the Su-57 took part in striking terrorists in the Arab Republic.

“The Air Force is currently receiving modern samples of aviation technology in accordance with the state defense order. By the end of the year, it is planned to supply more than 60 units of new aviation equipment, including modern multipurpose aircraft Su-30SM, Su-35S, Su-57 and front-line bombers Su-34, heavy military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A, combat helicopters Mi -28NM, Ka-52 and airborne transport - Mi-8AMTSh-VN. All samples are tested in the course of hostilities in the Syrian Arab Republic, and according to the results obtained, the necessary modifications are promptly carried out. ", - said Sergey Dronov.

It should be noted that the first production model of the Su-57 was adopted by the Russian army at the end of last year. This probably indicates that in the first half of 2021, the fighter could be tested in Syria, for example, in order to check the delivery of strikes against ground targets in territories controlled by militants. This was not officially reported.
