Russia once again offers Su-57 Stealth Fighter to India


Russia is keen to maintain its position as the biggest provider of latest defence hardware to India and has once again proposed that the two countries join hands to develop the Sukhoi Su-57 5th Generation stealth fighter which can serve the air forces of the two countries for the next few decades.

“I believe that we should resume this project, Russia is open to that. We are ready and are proposing this programme to our Indian partners,” Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Deputy Director Vladimir Drozhzhov was quoted as saying by TASS news agency in Moscow on July 9. He added that the Sukhoi Su-57 is an extremely capable 5th Generation multirole aircraft with unique capabilities.

Drozhzhov’s statement comes a few months after Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov told the Interfax news agency in late March 2019 that the Su-57 is the latest supersonic stealth jet in the world and the Indian Air Force (IAF) would be interested in having the lethal aircraft in its fleet.
