Algeria plans to invest around $2B for aircraft, including Su-57, media reported
PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – In the last few days, information has been intensely reported in the world media that Algeria is ready to invest approximately $ 2 billion for the purchase of new fighter jets, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
DEFENSEWEEK’S REPORT: The Su-57’s uncontrolled flight in the sky: what ‘killed’ the aircraft?
According to various sources, Algeria has already “bought” 14 Su-57 fighters, 14 Su-35 fighters and 14 Su-35 bombers.
This whole order, according to the international information exchange, happened a day after the crash of the Su-57, which we also reported in detailed reports.

$ 2 billion they represent approximately 16% of Algeria’s annual defense budget.
We cannot confirm the truth of this information as there is no official announcement from the Russian authorities yet.
If true, Algeria becomes the first country to buy fifth-generation Su-57 fighters.
It sounds a little strange because of one important factor: it is currently commencing production of the Su-57 for the Russian Air Force, which is expected to continue until 2028, according to planned purchase units.
This news is likely to be false, as is the news more than half a year ago that Turkey has already ordered a Su-57 from Russia.
The Turkish defense minister then had to make a special statement that this news was not true.
