Here's What You Need To Remember: Bolshakov blames the situation on Russia's weak finances. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia in the 1980s and 1990s focused on improving its fourth-generation Cold War aircraft instead of fifth-generation models like the Su-57.
While several hundred advanced fighters were produced, many were exported to foreign customers for cash instead of the Russian air force.
Russian airpower is inferior to U.S. airpower, according to one Russian news site.
But is this genuine fear, or a marketing ploy to goad the Russian government into buying a stealth fighter that it doesn't really want?
