Another Two Russian Fifth Gen Su-57 Jets Land in Syria's Hmeymim

Russia's Su-57 stealth fighter also known as the T-50

"Thus, there are four advanced Su-57 stealth fighters in Syria", the WarJornal analytical platform, which monitors hostilities around the world, said on its Telegram channel on Friday, February 23.

"The addition of fifth generation fighters into Syria would certainly not be in keeping with Russia's announced force drawdown", Eric Pahon, a Defense Department spokesperson, said. No American servicepeople were killed in the fighting that ensued. The coalition remains focused on the enduring defeat of ISIS. Although the two warplanes appear to look similar to the Su-57, RT can not verify the authenticity of the video and is trying to verify its source.

Those fighting include Russian Federation and Iran supporting the Syrian dictator; Turkey, which is battling Syrian Kurds and trying to stop them from creating their own autonomous state; and various elements of the US military - which worked with the Kurds to defeat the Islamic State terror group.

The deployment comes on the heels of the United States employing its most advanced fighter jet, the F-22 stealth fighter, in strikes against targets in Syria after a February 7 attack against US-backed forces by pro-Syrian government troops that also included Russian mercenaries.

The photos come as a confirmation to the appearance of the fifth-generation multifunctional fighter formerly known as T-50 in Syria.

Jennifer Lawrence says she dropped out of middle school
Now she is cast as a Russian ballerina coerced into becoming a spy in the upcoming " Red Sparrow ". The actress was so set on her dreams that she convinced her parents to let her quit school at 14.

The most benign explanation for moving these planes to Syria is that Russian Federation wants to test their capabilities and improve the notoriously troublesome fighters, as it has done with other weapons systems during its intervention on behalf of the Assad regime.

As Popular Mechanics pointed out, skepticism of such reports from the chaos of Syria is appropriate, but further eyewitness accounts and video clips developed confidence that the Su-57 report was real. However, the National Interest notes that Russian Federation has a preference for earlier battlefield testing than the US and its allies.

Earlier this week, Al Hussani reported about the deployment of the first two Su-57 fighters in Hmeymin, something that is yet to be confirmed by the Russian Defense Ministry.

Designed for air superiority and attack roles, the Su-57 is fitted with sophisticated avionics system capable of autonomous calculations of the battlefield situation to assist the pilot. Other Russian analysts suggested Moscow sent the planes to put on a little air show for potential buyers, some of whom have been growing skeptical of the Su-57 project's viability.
