There's not much information about the claimed deployment other than the video.

If it is true, and I suspect with the video it is, then things could get interesting. And I totally bet that the F-22s will be snooping around.

I wonder which side will get the shock?

I do have my suspicions.

The Drive added a touch more, but only a touch.

Wait til they turn up unexpectedly under the wing of a KC-135 and watch the USAF pucker factor.

I suspect Russia's Most Syrian Adventure is about to get real exciting. For everyone.

That would be 20% of the prototypes built.

I doubt they have. Dont they only have like 10 built?

I think they have 12. Two are not flyable currently, including the one with the new engine.

I predicted Russia would step up their air defenses in Syria.

There is another link here With the same video. southfront.org...

If this was taken one day ago it sure is not in russia. Everything is Snowy there now.


EDIT: It is a bold move from Russia if they want to test the SU57 live in a war before it has even entered servise.


On the 21 Russia also deployed 4. SU 35s, 4. SU 25s and a A-50U.

Be funny as hell if a 4.5 Gen dusted one of them.

Russia sure is taking full advantage of the Civil War in Syria.

maybe generals, but most aircrew on heavies accept that if the awacs, and the fighters don't do their job a heavy is a big old target.

I remember going to classes on Awacs on how to spot ground based missile launches, as if I could see that tiny plume from 35k feet and recognize it and react before that thing has ruined our day.

We used to laugh about how absurd it was, the consensus on the flight deck was if the others fail we die.

The ultra-modern warplane is designed for “air superiority and attack roles”. The aircraft fitted with a revolutionary avionics system capable of autonomous calculations of the battlefield dynamics to assist the pilot.


Im no bird expert but that seems like a pretty damn big piece of equipment for "Air Superiority and Combat Roles" , just doesnt seem like it would be as agile as our F-22s but I could be wrong.




The aircraft made its maiden flight in December last year and there was surprise at its deployment in Syria during its testing phase. Earlier this month deputy Russian defence minister Yuri Borisov said: “We are buying Su-57 jets for combat trials. “The first stage of state trials has been concluded.” He said at the time: “There has only been one flight. "Everything seems normal, but as you might imagine, this is a whole range of trials. “Many test flights must be carried out.


So testing in combat situations before put into service, thats interesting.

Yeah, but that's why just showing up once might really crimp the current game plan. Imagine these guys showing up unannounced or just illuminating and tracking unannounced every time someone gets close to the refueling track. You don't have a choice but to chase them away while the tanker scoots. Then you start pushing the tankers back towards the Iraqi border and that alone will have an impact on air ops. You can hamstring the allied air effort with a minimum of effort.

They are probably going to see if they can sniff out the Raptor With it.

Meh Raptor will see it first, 57 has a lot of lobe leakage.

I dont know. And i dont think we will ever know even if a confrontation does take Place.

Personaly i think the US have braged the F-22 up to a Level it is not even Close to be at. There is no way in hell the US would mention the Raptors weaknes when it comes to stealth, that would not sit well With the tax payers. I also dont think Russia have had all the problems With their SU57 as they have claimed to have had (or Our media have claimed). There is no way russia would send their state of the art 5th generation to a conflict sone were it could be humiliated by the US.

I also think the US will use this opportunity to seek out the SU57 when ever they can, to gather intel on russian progress.

It'd only be potentially "humiliated" if a real shooting war developed between the two. There's plenty to be said for real world deployment and experience in development. Hard to replicate that at Komsomolsk. They could even sport Luneburg's like we do so you don't give away too many secrets.
