Russia has placed an order for 76 Su-57 multi-role, stealth-capable, fifth-generation fighters at the ongoing Army 2019 event in the capital, Moscow.

“We’ve ordered 76 Sukhoi Su-57 fighters. They will be delivered to us by 2028,” Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said at the Forum.

The other mega-deal is the one for two Yasen-M nuclear-powered cruise-missile submarine for the Russian Navy.

In May 2019, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said that manufacturers reduced prices for both the aircraft and the equipment by 20%, which provided the opportunity to purchase more of these jets.

"We have agreed to purchase 76 fighters without the increase in prices in the same period of time," Russian President Vladimir Putin, said.

"In the nearest future we will sign a package contract to supply 76 such jets equipped with modern weapons of destruction and provided with the necessary land infrastructure," Putin asserted.
