Russia debuted in combat, bombing a bridge over the Teterev River in Ukraine with its most modern aircraft: the Sukhoi Su-57, one of the few fifth-generation fighters. Videos circulating on social media show the first time a Sukhoi Su-57 was used in war.
Fifth-generation fighters combine high-performance airframes, advanced air/air and air/ground combat weaponry, and stealth technology that prevents you from being detected by radar.

In addition, the Russian fighter reaches supersonic speeds and has a much greater ability to perform maneuvers than other fighter planes due to the vectored thrust technology, which allows directing the output of the turbines in different directions.
Apart from Russia, which has only three Sukhoi Su-57 units, only China and the US have fifth-generation fighters. The Sukhoi Su-57 had already been seen flying over Syria in 2010, but was never officially used in combat.
The aircraft has a lifespan of up to 35 years and was developed from 2005 onwards, to be the successor to the MiG-29 and Su-27.
