Since this is the first fifth generation fighter to be produced outside of the US (and its partners for F22/F35), it would be interesting to see the
demand for it on the global defense market. With the right marketing approach Russia could profit handily from its sales. Obviously India will have
their own production version developed, but I could see some Asian, Middle Eastern, and South American clients who would be willing to pay for this
What remains to be seen is how well Sukhoi meets deadlines, but so far I don't think that the presented time frame for the project (placed in service
by about 2015) is unrealistic, but Sukhoi has its work cut out for it.
