Despite recent reports in Russian media suggesting ongoing discussions between Russia and India regarding the co-development of the Su-57 fighter jet, People familiar with the matter have told that India will maintain its distance in the project. This decision stems from several factors, including concerns over the Su-57’s capabilities, India is keen to focus on developing its own indigenous 5th-generation fighter jet, the AMCA, and past disagreements with Russia over the FGFA program.

India’s initial interest in the Su-57 was primarily driven by its stealth capabilities and potential as a cost-effective alternative to Western fighter jets. However, subsequent evaluations have raised concerns about the Su-57’s overall performance, particularly in terms of its engine technology, radar systems, and electronic warfare capabilities.

India has invested heavily in the development of its 5th-generation fighter jet, the AMCA, which is expected to enter service in the mid-2030s. The AMCA is designed to meet India’s specific requirements and is seen as a crucial step towards achieving self-reliance in advanced fighter jet technology.

India’s decision to withdraw from the FGFA program, a joint effort with Russia to develop a 5th-generation fighter jet based on the Su-57, was largely driven by disagreements over technology transfer, cost-sharing, and the overall design of the aircraft. These disagreements highlight the challenges of such co-development projects and have likely influenced India’s reluctance to engage in another similar endeavor.
