New F-35 Shocked Russians: The Only Fighter Jet To Beat SU-57 /
The Su-57; a Russian, a beast, a supervillain, unstoppable by any fighter in the world but one – the F-35; an American, a beast, a superhero. This is a deathmatch between these two fifth-generation fighters; a real-life version of Top Gun’s “Maverick” piloting the F-35 to take on the Su-57 Felon – a jet the movie describes as Enemy Strike Jet. But in real life, the bad guys do win, and with the Su-57 having undergone the longest list of upgrades before possibly taking off to take part in the Russian invasion of Ukraine, how will the F-35 fare against the most powerful Russian fighter in history? But first, a look at some of the F-35’s own upgrades because the American camp has been quite busy too.
