The Russian export version of the Su-57E was never shown at the Indian air show

The Indian media did not publish a single photograph of the Russian fifth-generation Su-57E fighter, a scale model of which, as previously stated, was supposed to be one of the main displays at the Indian air show. Apparently, the export version of this fighter never arrived in India.

Earlier it was assumed that the demonstration of the Russian Su-57E fighter at the air show in India would make it possible to conclude agreements with a number of countries for the supply of these combat aircraft, however, no official statements were made on this score.

One of the reasons why the assembled Su-57E did not arrive in India is the employment of the production of serial combat aircraft for the needs of the Aerospace Forces, however, the circumstances of why the aircraft model has not been demonstrated in India so far remain very mysterious.

Earlier, the Indian media reported that with the arrival of the first fifth-generation serial fighter in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces, New Delhi decided to return to the program of cooperation with Russia, however, the key factor is to demonstrate the real capabilities of the export version of this combat aircraft.
