I'm not sure this is particularly new to anyone...? Haha

Not exactly new, although they are still in the early stages of service introduction. The Su-57 is what used to be called the T-50, the first flight of which was back in 2010.

I think what's meant here is that the first production Su-57 has been delivered to the VKS though.

It isn't the first production aircraft, the first one crashed during a pre-delivery test flight.

Which would mean the VKS never took delivery, hence this is the first production delivered...

Lovely looking aircraft. I hope to see one some day. The camouflage pattern is quite effective too. Much better than black.

As an aside to the post, is there any reason why Sukhoi seem to have overtaken MiG, as Russia's prime military aircraft manufacturer?

They’re now technically one company - the UAC.

MiG currently make the MiG-35 and the MiG-29K both of which have export orders, their only manufacturing plant also makes the Yak-130.

Russia are supposedly studying a new light weight fighter idea and if so, it’s likely that will be a MiG.

Aaaahhh, thanks Andy!

It just seemed that MiG had dropped off the radar, so to speak!
