yes they are not upto the western level but they are not as bad as chinese ones (i mean they are not sub standard), but still su 57 is more of a stealth killer ,with k77 and l band ew arrays with full of radars it can be worthy (more of a jugadu f22)Su 57 is grand pa of agility. It can climb up to the height of Mount Everest in less than 20 Second with climb rate of 350 meter a second. However, as it happens with most of Russian Weapons, it can not match the electronics of west. Its panned powerful engine is also not coming. Russian planes are built on outdated philosophy such as dog fight etc but does not focus on electronics and weapon package like west. Su57 with west electronics, Indian HUD and software can be a lethal combo which India has planned to do in FAGFA. However, it did not happen because of some reasons.
