PATRIOT PARK /Moscow Region/, August 17. /TASS-DEFENSE/. The United Aircraft Corporation (UAC, part of the Rostec state hi-tech corporation) and the Russian Defense Ministry are discussing the development of the fifth-generation Sukhoi Su-57 multirole two-seat fighter jet, UAC CEO Yuri Slyusar told TASS at the Army 2022 forum.

“We are actively interacting with the customer. A significant advantage of the Su-57’s two-seat version can be new tactical capabilities when operating with UAVs, which allows obtaining a synergetic effect when performing special tasks,” Slyusar said.

The Su-57 is a fifth-generation Russian-made multifunctional fighter designed to destroy all types of air, ground and surface targets. It has supersonic cruising speed, internal armament, radar-absorbing coating, as well as the latest onboard equipment. The Russian Aerospace Force will receive 22 Su-57 fighters by late 2024. Their number will be increased to 76 by 2028. The first fighter was delivered to the Russian troops in 2020.

The Army 2022 international military-technical forum is running on August 15-21 at the Patriot exhibition center outside Moscow. The Defense Ministry is the organizer of the forum.

ברור לי שלכל אדם יש עמדה פוליטית כזו או אחרת ואני מאמין שלא ניתן להימנע מזה גם באתר הזה, אבל דעות פוליטיות לא יכוונו את רוח הדברים באתר זה.
