The post reads, “Rumor has it that Sukhoi would maybe send a Su-57! To be confirmed. Are you like us impatient to hear him roar in the Parisian sky?”.

Sources in the Russian defense industry have confirmed plans for the demonstration of a new Su-57 fighter aircraft in Paris but added that there is no final decision yet.

The Su-57 is a Russian-made fifth-generation multirole fighter designed to destroy all types of air targets at long and short ranges and hit enemy ground and naval targets, overcoming its air defense capabilities.

Compared to its predecessors, the Su-57 combines the functions of an attack plane and a fighter jet while the use of composite materials and innovation technologies and the fighter’s aerodynamic configuration ensure the low level of radar and infrared signature.

The Su-57 took to the skies for the first time on January 29, 2010.

According to the National Interest, the Kremlin ordered its first dozen production-standard Su-57s in August 2018, hoping to form the first regular squadron some time in 2019. But with military budgets declining amid an economic slump, Moscow at the same time decided to not acquire the plane in large numbers.
