Turkey may buy Su-57 instead of F-35, source reports
Turkey may purchase the fifth-generation Su-57 fighters from Russia, media reports.
According to some reports, Ankara will make such a decision in case of even greater cooling of relations with the United States.
According to a source in the Turkish Ministry of Defense, Ankara cannot afford to remain without replacing the F-35 fighters with the Russian analogs. "A geostrategic assessment will make the Russian option a natural first substitute," 1news.az quotes a military source as saying.
