As we have reported earlier that Russia Su-57 and Su-35 Fighter Jets landed In Turkey for Technofest.
Turkey has expressed an interest in Russian fighter aircraft, including Sukhoi’s 4++ generation Su-35 and the new fifth-gen Su-57 stealth fighter, following Washington’s decision not to follow through with the delivery of F-35s to its NATO ally after Turkey’s refusal to scrap its S-400 air defence system deal with Russia.
After watching the Su-35 demonstration at Ataturk airport, Turkish people seemed quite impressed by the flight capabilities of the Russian fighter. In fact, they seem to consider the Su-35 way better than the US-built F-16 already in service with the Turkish Air Force.
Here are several comments Turks left on Youtube
“Watching the flight of this plane, I dreamed that this plane would become our fighter jet made at our plant. Today we don’t need the American devil, but the Russian bear is needed.”
Phönix – Diriliş başladı:
“It is much better than the American junk! America doesn’t take anybody except Russia seriously.”
Other users calls to abandon “American junk – F-16” and to replace them with Russian fighter jets.
“At 02:34 ‘Pugachev’s cobra’: an ideal combination of aerodynamics and thrust vectoring.”
“We’d better get involved in SU-57 production.”
“It is unknown whether the Russians will approve the transfer of technologies, but if yes, then 20-30 of such planes must be bought.”
There are also attempts to joke
The pilot took a glass of vodka and boarded the plane :).”
