Su-57: Russian Air Force chief confirms 5th-gen fighter jet name

11 Aug, 2017

The Russian military will name the country’s first fifth-generation fighter jet ‘Sukhoi Su-57,’ the commander of the Russian Air Force has confirmed. The aircraft was dubbed ‘PAK FA’ and ‘T-50’ during its development.

The general confirmed earlier media reports, which said PAK FA’s official designation would be Su-57. There had been speculation in military media outlets that the name would be officially confirmed during the MAKS 2017 Air Show near Moscow in July, but this failed to materialize.“The decision has been taken, the plane has been christened. Su-57 is what we are going to call it now,” Gen. Col. Viktor Bondarev told Zvezda, the Russian Defense Ministry’s official TV channel.
