Time to hack more technology from those capitalist pigs, eh, Xi?...

"The Sukhoi Su-57 fighter crashed in a ball of flames and was 'fully
destroyed'"

"The Su-57 is also similar to the Chinese J-20 jet, which is alleged to have
been built using stolen US plans obtained by Chinese hackers."

Such cases are not uncommon when new
military equipment is being heavily tested
in various extreme modes.

> "The Su-57 is also similar to the Chinese J-20 jet,

No, it's not.

You'd think that all the bugs in the MiG-29 would have been ironed out long
ago. Apparently not: “The MiG-29 really got exposed with the fall of the
Iron Curtain. You don’t see further foreign sales. Who’s bought it? Nobody.”

Have things really changed in the last four years?

Are Tu-22s getting long in the tooth?

Mig-29 had quite a glorious history of export sales. But now it's no longer
'new' to make it somehow a sales priority. "Algeria is the first export client
for the Russian Su-57" <http://tinyurl.com/s25xtsq>
Shit happens, which still doesn't change the fact that America is in an
unpreventable decline whereas Russia is steadily improving itself in complex,
and in variuous ways, including military designs, but not only.

Today Russia sucessfuly sells S-400, for example, and those amusing monkeys
within the American White House and Pentagon are squealing hysterically, but
can't do anything about that.

They'll soon discover that they get what they paid for.
