Today (may 3), the head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov has declared readiness of Russia to deliver to Turkey, the su-57. However, there is one condition. Russia is ready to cooperate, if Ankara will cease to participate in the production of F-35 aircraft.
Chemezov said that the characteristics of the Russian aircraft offer great prospects for export.
The Turkish Anadolu news Agency conducted an extensive analysis of the American F-35 and the Russian su-57. According to the results of the analysis of Russian fighters at times are superior in the characteristics of the American F-35. The best criteria that distinguish the Russian su-57, Turkish media have recognized the maneuverability, and the ability to take off and land in extremely short distances.
Not so long ago the US government reported a possible suspension of deliveries of F-35 for Turkey. Washington is unhappy that Turkey is buying Russian s-400. According to the American authorities, the s-400 system is incompatible with NATO standards. Such purchases may result in not only stopping the supply of American fighters, but also sanctions.
However, if the United States will cease to supply machines for Turkey, Ankara has nothing to lose, since instead can continue to purchase Russian s-400. It was reported earlier the foreign Minister of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu.
