Russia’s fifth generation Su-57 fighter jet made over ten flights in Syria in 2018, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported late last year.

“The crews of Su-57 planes performed over 10 flights in Syria,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement after posting footage of the aircraft in action. “The flights were performed to confirm the stated capabilities of the newest plane in a real combat environment.”

Russia tested the Su-57’s flight and technical characteristics, its intellectual information control technology, onboard systems and armament amid high temperatures, complex relief and other factors in Syria, the Defense Ministry said.

The Su-57 is a fifth-generation multirole fighter designed to destroy all types of air targets at long and short distances and hit enemy ground and naval targets, overcoming its air defense capabilities.

The Su-57 took to the skies for the first time on January 29, 2010. Compared to its predecessors, the Su-57 combines the functions of an attack plane and a fighter jet while the use of composite materials and innovation technologies and the fighter’s aerodynamic configuration ensure the low level of radar and infrared signature.

“low level of radar and infrared signature”
=> With two enormous Saturn AL-31F as engines? Seriously?

Su-57 and Su-27/20/33/35 share the same engines.

BTW, the Craptor has serious IR signature :

When everybody is very difficult to detect in the radar range, the infrared detection is much harder to beat…

I have detected 3 thumbdowners that are total morons, and no need for a QWIP (quantum-well infrared photodetector), not even IRST/EOST/FLIR or radar 🙂
