These two videos offer great opportunities to get up close and personal with the Sukhoi Su-57 – one of the finest fighter jets ever made.
When the United States developed its Fifth Generation air-superiority fighter, the F-22 Raptor, it gave the world a glimpse at a superior aircraft in terms of stealth abilities (the ability to appear invisible to radar and tracking systems) speed (top speeds are classified, though admittedly appears slower than earlier generations like the F-15), and maneuverability (the best, bar none). But military secrets are the most fleeting of all, as they say, and so the Russian Federation sought to meet and exceed the benchmarks set by the F-22, and they have done it with the new Su-57.
This first video shows two of the new fighters in preparation for the Victory Day Parade to be held on the 9th of May in Moscow.
Nice, isn’t it? This plane is a thing of beauty. This video is long on closeup views of the plane while on the ground.
The second video is in Russian, but it is readable if one looks carefully. It tells us the specs of the plane and shows us its agility in flight.
