#2 Many analysts doubt that Russia can produce more than 2 or 3 SU-57 Jets per year given the constraints of financing, engineering, etc.

Since Russia will want to keep most of the new stuff for themselves, this acquisition is definitely a long term proposition for Turkey.

#9 Perhaps Turkey can hand one of these and a S-400
