The Russian Ministry of Defense will receive 76 multirole fighter jets Su-57 within the framework of a contract with Sukhoi Company, Minister of Industry Denis Manturov told reporters on Thursday at the Army 2019 Forum.
“76 aircraft,” Manturov said while responding to a question.
Fighter jets will be supplied by 2028, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko told reporters.
Su-57 is a Russian multirole fifth-generation fighter jet designed to destroy all air, ground, and water surface targets. It has stealth coating, keeps weapons inside, and develops supersonic cruising speed.
