    Sounds like expensive and inefficient way to test air defence system .

    The most likely reason of the existence of Su-57 should be the same like for the poseidon/ nuclear cruise missile and so on : increase the money that everyone has to spend for defence systems and sensors, and decrease the money available for attack systems.

    It is the inverse that the USA did with the intrusions to the Soviet airspace several times : forced the Soviets to develop sophisticated sensor and missile systems .

    And it works well.

    The bird actually starts appearing at 1:32. Would be sure sure something if a small bird kills the party with flying into the inlet.

    Well, the corn fields around that airport are now a proven fall back if your engines happen to eat birds :D

    Humm? no doubt only a generation or so behind the F-35, entertaining to watch you laud Russian progress? all the while you are busy casting aspersions on the F-35 at every turn?

    Conflicted I suppose??

    Brother the post you quoted has a value in documenting propaganda; please note its first line is the reference to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TASS_Is_Authorized_to_Declare...

    no endorsements should be made based on me reposting TASS, Xinhua, Global Times etc. it's as if you saw me reading the Watchtower and thought I had become a Witness
