The mass production of Su-57 fighters began in Russia. This is reported by RIA Novosti, with reference to a brochure dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Sukhoi Design Bureau.

"The fifth-generation multifunctional aviation complex with high intelligence of onboard equipment, low visibility, large lines for intercepting air and destroying ground targets. In 2019, it was launched into serial production, and a long-term contract was signed with the Ministry of Defense for the supply of more than 76 aircraft," the brochure says.

The Su-57 is the first Russian fighter of the fifth generation. It has been developing since 2002. The serial production of the aircraft was repeatedly postponed. Earlier, the head of the United Aircraft Corporation, Yuri Slusar, said that the first 12 aircraft should be operational in 2019, but in 2018 the TASS news agency reported that the first and second production aircraft would enter the army at the end of 2019 and in 2020, respectively.

In 2020, it was planned to sign a second contract for the production and supply of another 13 serial fighter jets to the Air and Space Forces of Russia until 2025, the state agency reported. However, on June 27, a contract was signed for 76 new aircraft until 2028 - these are most likely three full-fledged aviation regiments and a training link.

In April, it was reported that the intermediate engine of the "first stage" for the fighter was put into mass production, while the engine of the "second stage", assuming full compliance of the fighter with the declared characteristics, will be ready to be installed on fighters not earlier than 2023 and is being tested.
