First Su-57 to be delivered to Russia in 2020

In 2020, the first Su-57 of the original production batch will be delivered to Russian Air Force according to the commander of the 4th Air and Air Defence Forces Army chief Nikolai Gostev.

This information contradicts statements by Russian Deputy Defense Secretary Alexei Krivoruchko that the first Su-57 fighters out of the 15 ordered will be delivered in 2019.

It is noted that on August 22, 2018, during the International Military and Technical Forum, TASS had published the news that Russia’s Ministry of Defense signed a contract to build the first Su-57 aircraft.
