In the United States, they comment on the photo of the second serial Su-57: the Russians have significantly increased the build quality


The Russian Ministry of Defense has released images of the second production Su-57 fighter - the first crashed during flight tests last year. According to the American edition of The Drive, Russian gunsmiths have significantly improved the build quality of the combat aircraft.


On August 12, a delegation led by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited the Sukhoi aircraft plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur as part of the celebration of the Russian Air Force Day and examined the Su-57. This aircraft is known at the plant as the T-50S-2 and has the serial number 51002.

The images of the Su-57 clearly show the new optical-electronic complex 101KS-V, installed in the bow. Also noticeable are the extended air refueling rod and the unpainted fighter nose cone made of composite material. Large front slats are visible for active maneuvering. Judging by the tail unit, the fighter will receive a “digital camouflage” pixel scheme.


The quality of the skin is significantly better than what we saw on 11 pre-production aircraft.

Said Steve Trimble, editor of Aviation Week Defense magazine.

This second production Su-57 is part of an order for 76 fighters to enter service with the Russian Air Force by 2028. The order of the Ministry of Defense was announced in May 2019.

    This is how much you need to see in order to see the thoroughness of the assembly on separate general plans of the workshop. These things are viewed almost through microscopes. And, at least, simultaneously with comparisons with drawings.

      Editors do not work at the plant and have not heard of the Quality Control Department.

    This second production Su-57 is part of an order for 76 fighters to enter service with the Russian Air Force by 2028. The order of the Ministry of Defense was announced in May 2019.

    - What??? - Should go into service with the Russian Air Force by 2028 ???
    - Yes, during this time ... - "donkey will die"; "the padishah will be re-elected"; and solid drones with quantum on-board computers will already be in use ...; and the world will be ruled by 5G ...
    - Yes, China will finalize its J-20 in a year; arm his army; and then just flood the market with all sorts of lightweight export modifications ...
    - And our Su-57 will still be waiting for a new engine ... - And how many Sukhoi aircraft plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur can produce Su 57 per year ??? - And if you finally manage to bring to mind the engine for it ... - which plant will produce these engines ???
    - There are more questions than the released Su-57 fighters ...

          Or maybe you should hand over the drawings?

      Where will they get the engines for their beloved J-20? Again, they will buy an engine for aircraft of the previous generation from Russia, as you have already done?

        - China "already yesterday" flies on its "short-lived engines" ... -And even today the Chinese will have enough of such a resource; in order to carry out with their numerous air armada what they have in mind ...
        - But what does Russia think and what is going to do on its "piece fighters" (which, by the way, have not created a new "native engine" for the new fighter either) ... when will it be necessary to fight off the enemy armada of fighters and UAVs? ??
        - About "air rams" ... - you have to forget right away .. - that's for sure ... -Hahah ...

          How much do they fly? 48 hours or already 72? And then what, a massive overhaul with replacement of blades? Yes, they miraculously somehow, groaning strained, managed to copy the engine for the MiG-29, which was not the first freshness, and then they achieved the reliability of the USSR level, when now the service life of these engines is twice as high. And from the UAV armadas, new missiles are being made for modernized shells, which have already been ordered by tens of thousands of pieces. To shoot down UAVs from planes is generally gross nonsense. Well, the AL-41 is still better than what the Chinese are trying to push through.

          Your "ah-hah-hah" to any topic is ubiquitous in almost all comments - is it something like a self-affirmative signature? laughing

      Solid drones, you say? Quantum computers. It's funny. The first shock drones appeared in the early 80s. Even then these songs sounded. 21 century. As if the first quarter ends. The matter did not progress beyond intelligence and support functions. Quantum computers will be a technical curiosity for another 15 years at least. Hollywood films are one thing, but reality is quite another.

    According to the American edition of The Drive ..

    They are worried that Russia can assemble such aircraft. Even in single copies. Chubais is not coping with his duties, Serdyukov was sent to help! And I have big doubts that by the end of the year we will have 9 such Su-57s assembled!
