Tested and Trusted: Russian Deputy PM says Su-57 stealth jet tested several times in Syria

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov has said Su-57 stealth fighter jet was tested a few thousand times, including several times in Syria,  Interfax News Agency reported Monday.

Deputy PM Borisov said the Russian Armed Forces tested the Su-57 jet over 3,500 times, with dozens of those tests taking place inside of Syria. Adding that during the Su-57’s tests, the aircraft was subjected to different types of tests in order to prove that the warplane was capable of handling different circumstances.

According to him: “The asset has already over 3,500 flights. Su-57 confirmed almost all the requirements of the tactical and technical specifications in full."

"The aircraft will be able to use a large number of new weapons,” Borisov said in an interview with Interfax, as quoted by Bulgarian Military News.

The Russian Ministry of Defense previously confirmed that the Su-57 was used inside of Syria, especially during its strikes against terrorist groups like the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh, a terrorist group banned in Russia).
