This is not Turkey: the first possible buyers of Su-57 are named

Despite the numerous reports that Turkey has shown an increased interest in the Russian Su-57, India and the UAE may become the first buyers of the fifth generation fighter.

As follows from a statement by Rostec’s head Sergei Chemezov, the possibility of acquiring the latest Russian combat vehicles has long been discussed in these countries, but a final decision on this issue has not yet been made.

Currently, the state corporation does not have a single contract for the supply of Su-57 to other countries.

According to US publications specializing in military subjects, Myanmar, Algeria, Turkey, China and India may become potential buyers of the fifth-generation Russian fighter.

According to experts, the interest of these countries in the Su-57 is due to interest in Russian weapons, a desire based on these of technologies to create their own fifth-generation fighters, as well as the participation of countries in military conflicts.

One of the factors that forces foreign buyers to postpone the purchase of fifth-generation Russian fighters is the desire to see it in service with the Russian army and to get a demonstration of its capabilities in real combat.

In any case, such a wish was expressed in July by Marshal of the Air Force of India Birender Singh Dhanoa.

    If these countries are interested in combat capabilities, let them buy the SU-35. The plane is already tested. And I am against the sale of modern weapons, which we do not yet have. Moreover, not many are able to pay with real money with Russia.

    Well, again, window dressing. They themselves do not yet have such in the army, but they are already blowing the whole world about sales abroad.

    Well, yes, it was Chemezov who said that, the one who earlier somehow issued a pearl about the fact that "we can sell the S-400 to anyone who wants it, including the United States."
