Sukhoi Su-57E export version
On June 16, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, who oversees the defense industry complex, announced that it was planned to develop a two-seater version of the Su-57 fighter in the export version. “The plans of the Ministry of Defense and the Sukhoi Design Bureau are to manufacture a two-pilot cockpit, which will expand the export demand for this model, it can create additional demand,” Borisov said at the time.
More recently, according to the designer of the Sukhoi Su-57, during the Army 2022 international military-technical forum is running on August 15-21 at the Patriot exhibition center outside Moscow, Russia’s fifth-generation Su-57 multirole fighter may serve as the basis for developing prospective aircraft for new Russian aircraft carriers.
CEO of Russia’s Rosoboronexport state arms seller Alexander Mikheyev stated at the MAKS 2021 international aerospace show that “Rosoboronexport is currently considering the requests for the fifth-generation Su-57E fighter from five countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Africa and Europe.”
Although the Russian weapons manufacturer declined to name the particular customer, he did say that countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Africa and Europe have shown interest in the fifth-generation Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter jet.

New Su-57E supercruise engines
The Su-57E stealth fighter aircraft displayed at the Army 2022 event in Moscow is equipped with a new engine design featuring a jagged edge exhaust nozzle which could be the much-anticipated second-stage engine, expected to power the production versions of the stealth jet. Earlier versions that flew at MAKS 2021 sport rounded engine exhausts similar to that of the AL41FP engine on the Su-35.

X-69 missile to be Launched from Su-57 Jet’s Internal Weapons Bay
Russia’s Tactical Missiles Corporation (KTRV) unveiled at the Army 2022 event in Moscow an all-new cruise missile, the X-69 missile meant to be fired from the internal weapons bay of the Su-57 stealth jet. KTRV displayed a full-size scale model of the missile, which is said to be ready for production. The X-69 missile can be fired from the internal weapons bay of the Su-57, and can also be mounted on the under-wing pylons of older jets such as the Su-35, Su-30SM, and MiG-35.
The X-69 was developed at the A. Ya. Bereznyak State Machine-Building Design Bureau (GosMKB) Raduga (part of KTRV), an enterprise specializing in the creation of high-precision missile weapons.
A KTRV press release described the missile as a “multifunctional unobtrusive high-precision aviation cruise missile X-69.“
“The X-69 is equipped with combined navigation and automatic control system. The maximum flight range is up to 290 km, the speed is 700-1000 km / h, and depending on the configuration, the weight of the warhead is 300-310 kg. It can be placed both on external suspensions and in internal compartments of platforms,” the release said.
The X-69’s square shape maximizes space in the internal weapon space in the Su-57E stealth aircraft.
