Reference News Network reported on April 11, according to the Russian News website reported on April 8, Russias fifth-generation fighter plane Soviet-57 will take the lead in equipping an air corps in the southern military region of the Russian army. At present, the Russian Ministry of Defense has not yet decided on the final ownership of these Su-57 batches. However, according to Russian military sources, the first batch of Su-57 may be deployed in Kremsk, the 1st mixed aviation division, the 3rd mixed aviation regiment, or the 27th mixed aviation division in Sevastopol, the 38th fighter aviation regiment.
Reported that the Su-57 is Russias development of the fifth generation of multi-functional fighter aircraft, aimed at replacing the Su-27 series of fighter aircraft. It flew for the first time in 2010 and has produced 10 test machines so far.
Usually, new Russian fighter planes are the first to install units close to the warfare machine factory. For example, the Su-35 produced by the Gongqing City factory is the first to install the 23rd fighter Air Corps of the 303rd fighter Aviation Division deployed in the Far East. However, due to the recent tension around the southern region of Russia, the Su-57 will first be equipped with troops facing the Black Sea. Especially considering that the air force of the southern military region of Russia is still equipped with the outdated early Su-27 fighter aircraft, the strategic direction of the new fighter aircraft is very urgent.
