MOSCOW, July 5 - RIA Novosti. Four Russian fighters of the fifth generation of the Su-57 have received combat experience in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria, said a member of the State Duma's expert council for the aviation industry, Vladimir Gutenev.

"The stay of our four Su-57s in Syria has certainly allowed us to obtain additional information about the capabilities of this machine to detect American F-22s and F-35s that are on the same theater of operations ", - he said.

In February, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported that two Su-57s carried out a test program in Syria for two days.

About the Su-57

Su-57 is a Russian multi-role fighter of the fifth generation, which was developed by Sukhoi Design Bureau. It is designed to destroy all types of air targets in long-range and near-battles, to destroy ground, surface targets with overcoming air defense systems, to monitor airspace at large distances from the base, to destroy the control system of enemy aircraft operations.

Now Russia has ten such weapons. Nine are tested with the AL-41F-1 powerplant (the "first stage engine"), and one with the serial engine ("product 30").

The first flight of the aircraft took place in 2010 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. As the head of the United Aircraft Corporation Yury Slyusar informed, the first production batch of 12 cars will be supplied by the VKS in 2019. Later, this information was confirmed by Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko.
