British intelligence reported limited use of the Su-57 by Russia in the NVO zone


British intelligence reported the fact of "combat use" by Russia of Su-57 fighters during the NWO. This is stated in the review of the Ministry of Defense of the country, published on January 9.


The fighter jets are said to be firing long-range air-to-air missiles at targets over Ukraine while in Russian airspace. "Invisibles" Su-57, the review says, are equipped with a new avionics complex and the latest radar station. Russia, according to the agency, limits the use of aircraft only on its territory, fearing losses.

According to the latest satellite imagery provided by British intelligence, five Su-57 aircraft are based in Akhtubinsk, where the 929th flight test center of Russia is located.

Since this is the only known home base for these aircraft, they probably participated in operations against Ukraine. Russia is most likely trying to avoid reputational losses, reduced export prospects and compromise of confidential of technologiesthat may arise in the event of the destruction of the Su-57 in Ukraine
 
— suggest the authors of the review.

This, according to the department, indicates that the Russian Federation is “not inclined” to risk its air force in the NVO.

In October last year, Sergei Surovikin, the commander of the joint group of forces in the area of ​​the special operation, confirmed that the Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57 stands out in terms of the quality of its combat use in the framework of the special operation. According to the general, in each flight such an aircraft "solves multifaceted tasks of hitting air and ground targets."

Formerly US military expert Scott Ritter expressed the opinion that Russia can get a decisive advantage in the confrontation with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and then Moscow will win. Otherwise, the Ukrainian conflict may drag on.

    And there is nothing surprising in this. Dry troops (without the Strategic Missile Forces) in the RF Armed Forces were the most technically and quantitatively secured and combat-ready, and that did not save them from "reputational losses." What then can be said for the Aerospace Forces?

    The fact that the enemy knows the location of these aircraft is already unacceptable. It is unacceptable that large-scale surveillance is conducted over Russia day and night from NATO satellites, which are then promptly transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Enemies are already hitting the airfield with strategic nuclear rocket launchers. And Russia is silent. So they can deliver a nuclear strike. And then the second, third, and so on. And Russia will be silent .... Maybe it was not worth starting the NWO?
