    Twin seat Su-57 is to be drone control aircraft not Su-30 replacement

    All 5-gen airforce is pricy

    Su-30 will be there as number filler for decades to come

    Yes! That makes sense. Russian Air Force should soon be able to routinely fly traditionally manned combat aircraft in tandem with unmanned aircraft. So maybe Su 35 or Su 57 will be teamed up with a Mig SKAT

    I remember that Australian expert supposing that the L band wing mounted AESA could be used for IFF, but was there any actual evidence that they intended to use it for such a role?

    I would assume the ability to search for stealth targets at extended range as well as detect enemy IFF emissions would be enough of a use for such a thing on an interceptor that is intended to hunt stealth aircraft.

    MiG showed a new drone likely their equivalent for the Mig-35/LMFS at the last MAKS, but I would expect the two seat Su-57 and the Su-30 (which is the two seat Su-35 now) will be for use with S-70 drones, but in the case of the latter a two seat Su-57 might also be used as a heavy carrier based fighter too.

    It is possible with aircraft mounted jamming pods and recon pods like those developed for the Su-34 that these two two seat Su-35s and Su-57s could also be used for jamming and recon missions where two crew can do a better job perhaps.
