China mulls to buy Russia’s Su-57 stealth fighter jet

China is weighing options to buy Russia’s new Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter jet as Moscow has identified China and India as potential customers to acquire its advanced warplane.

Described by Russian President Vladimir Putin as “the world’s best military plane”, the Su-57 is a fifth-generation multi-role fighter jet capable of both aerial combat and hitting the ground and naval targets.

Viktor Kladov, director of international cooperation and regional policy at Russia’s Rostec defence industrial holding company at a briefing at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition in Malaysia identified India and China as potential buyers, state-run Global Times reported on Monday.
