    Russia has been delaying the Su-57 for years now. First it was 2015, then it was 2016...now they are talking about 2019? Becouse the lack of 5th generation engines? Well i would say becouse of the lack of cash. Lack of money leads to slow development that leads to things getting delayed, leading to fewer and fewer airframes getting orderd.

    Well now that Israel have F-35s and Russian S-400 and S-300V4 systems and Su-35s are in Syria as well as new Syrian S-300PMU2 systems and of course USAF F-22s and F-35s in the region we will see shortly if Russia needs to spend big on Su-57s or not...

    All this bullshit posturing by the US can't be countered by destroyers and Su-57s... American politicians are too ignorant to know that they even mean... what Russia needs is Bulava and new ICBMs and nuclear propelled cruise missiles and Kinzhal anti carrier missiles...

    What Russia does not have is excess money to throw at money drains like the US does, which is good for Russia...

    Why should Russia copy Amiland (F-35) and produce a plane that isn´t fully operational?

    And please… stop this comparing the russian procurement process to this idiots behing the atlantic.

    Dat budget surplus:

    "Undeclared war" forces Russia to boost defense spending — minister

    Russia plans to spend 2.9 trillion rubles on defense in 2019, 3 trillion rubles in 2020, and 3.2 trillion rubles in 2021, according to the explanatory note to the draft budget for 2019-2021.

    Quoting Austin from July:

    Thus, expenditures under the item "National Defense" for 2018 are planned at 2.797 trillion rubles, in 2019 - 2.783 trillion rubles, in 2020 - 2.860 trillion rubles, in 2021 - 2.981 trillion rubles.

    It is a double bonus.... all this crap from the US regarding sanctions against anyone who deals with Iranian oil pushes up the price of oil.

    All the crap about dropping the INF treaty pushes up the price of oil too... sabre rattling always makes markets nervous.

    Both these things are pushing extra money into the Russian budget because they are making more money from the antics of the US... so it makes sense to put a bit of extra money into dealing with the US if needed...
