It is not "Su-57 fleet". More like T-50 fleet. Those are all prototypes.
AFAIK the first production Su-57 has not been manufactured or delivered yet.

was curious what the official would be; it's
"When landing at the Chkalov State Flight Test Centre airfield, the President’s airplane was accompanied by a group of six Su-57 fifth-generation fighter jets."

Version I saw said 2028. Still they have a lot of work to do than first they actually have to start production. 76 over 7 years isn’t A substantial order. I mean 11 a year is very slow.

Russia with the SU-57 has a history of claims against delivery that can hardly be described as reliable and over time has run out of credibility. I just don't believe Russia has the precision tooling to ramp up production to meet those kind of numbers even if money could be found. It is still waiting on its engine and its avionics and sensors are highly questionable in terms of development progress. Why would they build a shell if the core features are not ready. By the time they are ready, the timeline to build would be compressed quantities to meet those numbers. It is why I remain sceptical.
