The US Military Wath newspaper commented on a plan to design a single-engine, fifth-generation light fighter.
An article published by the newspaper stated that a light version of the Russian fifth-generation fighter has many common characteristics with the twin-engine “Su-57” fighter. The newspaper said, “In the event that the light fighter is provided with technologies that are adopted by the heavy” Su-57 “, this order will allow Russia to sell it as the first single-engine fighter of the sixth generation. Perhaps its price will not differ from that of the fifth-generation plane. It will be able to compete with the American” F-35 ” which is currently the only fifth generation aircraft sold in the global market.
