Согласованы документы для экспорта российского истребителя Су-57: Translated by google - Moscow. April 16th INTERFAX.RU - All documents allowing the export of a fifth-generation Russian fighter, the Su-57, have been agreed, an informed Russian source told Interfax on Tuesday.

In March, the source informed Interfax that the documents for exporting the Su-57 were at the final stage of coordination. According to the source, the question was technical in nature and was due to the fact that the aircraft was named Su-57. “The aircraft, which used to be called T-50, PAK FA (a promising aviation complex of front-line aviation), had an export passport,” a source said.

Russia may officially present the export version of the Su-57 in November at an air show in Dubai, the British edition Janes reported in March with reference to the Director of International Cooperation and Regional Policy of the Rostec State Corporation Viktor Kladov.

“We believe that the Middle East is an attractive market for this aircraft,” Kladov said then, noting that the Su-57 might be of interest to India and China.

On March 25, the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov said in an interview with Interfax that the Su-57 has good export prospects.

“As for competition, when acquiring such weapons, not only the price or individual characteristics of each particular aircraft are considered. Although these are very important parameters, we have something to offer here,” the minister said when answering the question whether Su-57 compete with fifth-generation American fighter jets.

The Su-57 is a fifth-generation Russian multi-role fighter developed by the Sukhoi Design Bureau. It is designed to destroy all types of air targets in long-range and close combat, destroy enemy ground and surface targets, overcoming the enemy’s air defense systems, monitor the airspace at a great distance from the basing site, and destroy the control system of enemy aviation.

The first flight of the Su-57 took place on January 29, 2010 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
