Turkey may purchase Russia’s Su-57 stealth fighter under favorable terms

may buy Russia’s Su-57 fighters on favorable terms, speaker for the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, Mustafa Sentop, said.

"Why not? Of course, every country has a need for the defence industry, if necessary, Turkey can use it for the defence industry. This, remember, happened with the S-400, we bought the S-400 [air defence missile systems]. Turkey can buy some weapons for its defence only on favourable terms, they may be bought from Russia, or from some other third countries," Sentop said in response to a question from Sputnik.

During his visit to the MAKS-2019 international air and space show in Zhukovsky outside Moscow last month, Turkey’s President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
watched aerobatics performed by Russian Su-35, Su-57 and MiG-35 jets.

Mr. Erdogan then told the media that Su-35s or Su-57s could replace Lockheed’s F-35s after their delivery was blocked by Washington following Turkey’s decision to purchase Russia’s S-400 air defence system.

Earlier this year, the US kicked Turkey off its F-35 programme after Ankara bought S-400s from Russia. The US claimed that S-400 batteries could pose a security and intelligence threat to the F-35.

Turkey slammed the US decision as unlawful. Some US politicians even urged President Trump to impose sanctions on Turkey over its S-400 deal with Russia.

#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.
