The government of Khabarovsk Territory (where the Sukhoi manufacturing plant is based) stated few days ago that the MoD would receive five Su-57 jets this year.

The Su-57 was developed by the Sukhoi company (part of the UAC) and is produced at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant (KnAAZ). This jet designed to destroy all types of air targets in long-range and close-range battles, defeat ground and surface targets of the enemy and overcome air defense systems. Its maiden flight took place on January 29, 2010.
