      No, everything fits together, the Su-75 will be released when aviation reaches the seventh generation in the world, not earlier

      Su-75 - a lightweight, cheap version of the Su-57, for the Western, or rather the Middle East and Indian market
      it would be better to ask where the Su-47 is? and what is the Su-30 and Su-35? Su-34 - 3rd generation supersonic bomber that replaced the subsonic Su-24
