Well, with current war.

I wonder how Western sanction will affect Su-57 productions.
I think they will phase out old jets used extensively in the conflict for new ones, so they will build more than less. It's the start of a new cold war and it will stay like that at least until the government (Putin and bro) get replaced in Russia. They will push for more.

There are reports that two more Su-57 fighters are being delivered. Bort Red 53 and Red 54. This should make it seven aircraft in service.

More serial Su-57 fighters spotted in Novosibirsk​


Two new fifth-generation Su-57 fighter jets made an intermediate landing at Novosibirsk Tolmachevo Airport while flying to their bases in the European part of Russia.

The fighters have red tail numbers "53" (RF-81777) and "54" (RF-81778). These are the first two Su-57 aircraft built in Komsomolsk-on-Amur in 2022, and according to Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST / bmpd), are the fifth and sixth serial Su-57 aircraft built by KnAAZ, which plans to transfer four serial Su-57s to the Russian Ministry of Defense in 2022.

On May 20, TASS, citing its source, reported that the Russian Aerospace Forces used Su-57 fighters during a military special operation in Ukraine. “The use of Su-57 aircraft in Ukraine began two or three weeks after the start of the special operation. Aircraft operate outside the zone of active destruction by enemy air defense systems, using missile weapons, ”the agency’s interlocutor said.

On February 3, 2022, in Tolmachevo, two Su-57 aircraft were filmed while transferring to their bases in the European part of Russia, which had red tail numbers "02" (without registration number) and "52" (had registration number RF-81775). At the same time, the Su-57 with tail number "02 red" carried the emblem of the 929th Chkalov State Flight Test Center in Akhtubinsk on board and, apparently, was intended for this unit. CAST suggested that the Su-57 with tail number "02 red" previously had the number "02 blue" and is an aircraft built in 2021 with serial number 52201 (T-50S-3).

Thus, the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant named after Gagarin has already transferred six fifth-generation Su-57 fighters to the Russian Aerospace Forces.
