Russia will unveil the export Sukhoi Su-57E fighter in India
MOSCOW, INDIA — Russia intends to show an export version of its Su-57E Felon fighter jet. Russia’s largest arms trading company, Rosoboronexport, announced the news to reporters. The Su-57E will be displayed in India at the Aero India 2023 International Air Show in Bangalore.
- According to Russian claims, the Su-57 is almost a 6th-gen fighter
- Russia revealed what tasks the Su-30SM performs in Ukraine
- Russia invites India to jointly develop the Su-57 Checkmate
The exhibition starts on February 13 and ends on February 17. This is the 14th Aero India Expo. Besides the Su-57E, Rosoboronexport reported that the Su-75 Checkmate will also be displayed in India. It is not clear from the statement of the Russian company whether a working prototype of the Su-75 will be displayed at the exhibition or mockup.
Rosoboronexport plans to present 200 samples in India. In the short press release of the Russian commercial company, the Su-57 was called “a promising fifth-generation multi-role fighter”. In 2019, Russia introduced its export Su-57E for the first time. This happened during the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition.
According to Rosoboronexport, the Su-57E is equipped with the latest generation of Russian-developed avionics. The aircraft has armament complexes and a high level of automation.
Russia plans to deploy a few more aircraft to its commercial area of Aero India. Among them is the MiG-35D, which according to some analysts, including Western ones, is one of Russia’s best fighter jets, but is sorely overlooked by Moscow. Along with this front-line fighter, the Su-35 and Su-30СМЕ will also be presented.
An important highlight besides the Su-57E will be the presence of the Ka-226T light multipurpose helicopter. India is eagerly awaiting the launch of the Ka-226T. Its production will start almost immediately after the end of the exhibition. This helicopter will be manufactured in India at the joint Russian-Indian production Indo-Russian Helicopters Limited.
Russia will introduce three more key helicopters from Rosoboronexport’s portfolio. According to Russian comments, these will be the three most sought-after helicopters in the Asia-Pacific region. We are talking about the combat helicopters Ka-52E, Mi-28NE, and the military transport helicopter Mi-171Sh.
