The Russian Aerospace Forces received the latest serial production aircraft of the fifth-generation Su-57 and the generation 4++ Su-35S fighters from the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant, a subsidiary of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).

These new aircraft have completed a comprehensive series of factory tests and were subjected to various operational mode tests conducted by Russian Ministry of Defense pilots.

Yuri Slyusar, UAC General Director, said Russian armed forces had received a batch of Su-57s as part of the plan to fulfill the state defense order for the current year. He mentioned that the remaining fifth-generation combat aircraft, which were scheduled for delivery this year, were in the final assembly shop and were also undergoing testing at the flight test station.

He further added, "We have also delivered the third batch of Su-35S this year, and the aircraft of the next stage are in production at a high level of readiness."
