Su-57 turned out to be incredibly old - its development lasted almost 40 years

The Russian Su-57 turned out to be incredibly old.

Despite the fact that the fifth-generation Russian fighter Su-57 is considered the newest combat aircraft, which, in fact, has not even begun to enter service with the VKS, the head of the United Aircraft Building Corporation, Yuri Slusar, said that this "newest" aircraft turned out to be incredibly old even by modern standards.

As it turned out, the development of the Russian fighter Su-57, referring to the fifth-generation combat aircraft, began in the 80-ies of the last century, while it is possible that the first research work on this fighter began even earlier.

“The situation is similar to the fifth-generation fighter, the work on which was started back in 1980-s”, - said the head of the United Aircraft Corporation, Yuri Slusar, commenting on the possibility of developing a sixth generation fighter.

In fact, according to experts, the Su-57 fighter is almost the same-generation Soviet fourth-generation fighter MiG-29, and although the Su-57 is still much more powerful, a number of countries, including China, India, South Korea and the United States, do not This combat aircraft belongs to the fifth generation fighters, which is due to the lack of visible use of "stealth" technologies.

It is not difficult to deceive me
I myself am happy to be deceived ...

"... The United States, do not consider this combat aircraft belonging to the fifth generation fighter ..."
Let Pindosia think they will, in order to appease pride. The main thing is that the Su-57 knocked down all these toys, which they consider to be "fifth generation" aircraft. And for some reason it seems to me that this is how it will be!
