According to Commander Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev, Russian Aerospace Forces satisfied with the ongoing tests of Russia's Su-57 fighter.

KUBINKA (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) Russian Aerospace Forces Commander Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev said Wednesday he was satisfied with the ongoing tests of Russia's Su-57 fifth-generation fighter.

"In terms of timing, we are on schedule, and more aircraft are joining the tests. [The extra aircraft] speed up all preliminary flight tests, so I think that all previously announced time frames for the first deliveries of jets to aviation units of the Russian Aerospace Forces will be sustained, and we will get the planned number of aircraft," Bondarev told reporters.
