The Su-57 is a Russian fifth-generation multirole fighter. It was created using stealth technologies and advanced electronics. This fighter is capable of carrying armaments in the fuselage’s internal compartments. The aircraft also has a supersonic cruising speed and is capable of maneuvering with high overloads.

Mini drones have been created for the Russian fifth-generation fighter Su-57, which it will carry on board giving the aircraft the capacity to control a cluster of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), a source told Sputnik.

“Mini-UAVs to be used for various purposes have been created for the Su-57, which the aircraft will be able to carry on an external sling and inside the fuselage, and drop in the air. It is planned that the fighter will launch several drones at once and control this group of drones,” the source said.

The source added that the UAVs will be used for attack, reconnaissance and electronic warfare.

Drones which will be in particular demand will be those which a group of Su-57s can drop by the dozen thereby allowing fighters to break through the enemy’s air defenses – both by overloading information channels and by a concentrated attack on its systems, the source said.
