Failed to buy Russian SU-57, China relies on J-20

Hsmilitarycom: The Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57 is very far behind the Chinese fifth-generation fighter J-20. 

At the moment, it is known that Russia has three Su-57 fighters in service, while the PLA Air Force has dozens of such aircraft in service: 150 combat vehicles. 

According to the Sina Military publication, for this reason, the PRC does not plan to purchase Russian fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Earlier, the news agency reported that by the end of 2021, the Russian Aerospace Forces were to transfer four new Su-57 fighters, however, according to unofficial data, in December 2021, Russian aircraft manufacturers transferred only two fifth-generation combat aircraft to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

However, according to Sina Miltary, at the end of last year, the PLA Air Force already had 150 fifth-generation Chengdu J-20 fighters. 

By the way, this is also confirmed by the regular appearance of these combat aircraft in various parts of China.

“Once upon a time, Russia planned to sell several hundred Su-57 fighters to China, but so far the Russian combat aircraft has only problems.

 The PLA Air Force already has 150 fifth-generation combat aircraft, while the Russian Aerospace Forces owns only one fifth-generation fighter. 

The apparent lag of the Su-57 from the J-20 indicates the fact that Russia may be left without a new generation of fighters , ”Sina Military reports.

According to official data, in 2022 it is planned to transfer 12 fifth-generation fighters to the Russian Aerospace Forces, however, delivery plans that were disrupted in 2021 raise concerns about this.
