The Russian Ministry of Defense released an impressive video labeled “Beyond The Laws Of Physics” showcasing their Sukhoi Su-57 fifth generation stealth fighter in action.
The single-seat, multi-role air superiority fighter is Russia’s first stealth aircraft, and was developed to replace the MiG-29 and Su-27 in the Russian Air Force. Russia claims the jet is supermaneuverable and has supercruise capability.
Due to its aerodynamics, Russia claims it can maintain supersonic speeds without afterburners. It’s large fuel capacity gives it double to range of the Su-27. While the Su-57 cannot actually break the laws of physics, its thrust vectoring capabilities allow it to perform some pretty wild looking maneuvers.
