Algeria In Talks With Russia for a Dozen Su-57 Jets

Algeria is likely to buy 12 Su-57 fighters with an option to procure 12 more, from Russia.

“Algeria is currently in fairly active negotiations with Russia to acquire 12 Su-57 fighters with the possibility of increasing the order to 24 combat aircraft,” sources were quoted as saying by Russia’s Avia.pro on Monday.

The deal, potentially worth $2 billion, is expected to be concluded in 2020.  If fructified, Algeria will become the first international customer of the Sukhoi fifth-generation jets.
