As indicated on the website of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), during flight tests, Su-57 is now tasked with properly working out the combat modes of the systems, docking with weapons and their use.

In total, 10 flight prototypes of the fighter were produced in Russia. The characteristics of the fighter on the UAC website are classified. The first flight of the flight model took place in 2010.

This fighter was previously spotted in Novosibirsk in the spring of 2018.

In order to ensure serial deliveries to the customer of the Su-57 fighters, the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant (KnAAZ) has started implementing a project to build a production line for the Su-57 serial production. This comes within the framework of the program for the development of the Sukhoi production system. Putting this line into operation will significantly reduce the time for many technological operations.

Earlier this month, the  Head of the Rostec State Corporation Sergei Chemezov had announced that prototypes of the second-stage engine for the Su-57 stealth fighter have been manufactured and are undergoing flight tests as part of the fighter.
