Su-57'S sports a 101KS-U MAWS which is part of the 101KS Atoll EO system, against IR missiles. It uses ultraviolet technology and cn operate under all weather conditions. It operates in a solar-blind UV spectral wavelength region and therefore has no natural (sun) false alarms.
It is used to provide directional information of the incoming guided missile to be able to deploy decoy after decision making, and also to maneuver. It also helps to swing 101KS-O DIRCM in action against the incoming missile.

Will India induct PAKFA/ FGFA Jets?, We need to Induct this Jet in order to stay relevant about 5th Generation Aircraft, But it doesn't mean that it should compromise its agility, ground attack capability, Interception capabilities, Induction of this Aircraft at large numbers like SU-30MKI like around 200 Plus, will force Pakistan to go into an arms race, even if it doesn't want to.

This is what super manuverablity does to you, People arguing Super manuverablity is only for air shows are boobs , super manuverablity will be very handy in avoiding BVR missiles , in the stealth era Most of the fifth generation fighter will end up in Dogfight.

ITR with a monster engine can complement the tau-max, in case of STR, basically it can swing between a very low speed fighter and a very high energy fighter. Best of both worlds

This is the only jet which enjoys both better ITR and STR.

F18 didn't stand a chance.

Russian Ministry of Defense confirms acquisition of 76 Sukhoi Su-57 Fighters

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the purchase of 76 of the latest Su-57 fighters by the Ministry of Defense, which are to enter service with three aviation regiments by 2028.

The contract, according to Kommersant, is estimated at up to 170 billion rubles (approx. $2.4 billion), which makes it the largest in the history of Russian aviation and guarantees a full workload for the Komsomolsk-on-Amur aviation plant for at least a decade. The agreement may be signed in the presence of the President at the MAKS aerospace show.

Vladimir Putin announced the readiness of the military to purchase large quantities of new aircraft at a meeting on the development of military aviation held in Sochi. He recalled that in 2013-2018, the troops received more than a thousand new and modernized aircraft and helicopters; as a result, 65% of the Aerospace Force aircraft fleet was modernized.

And the engines will be fully exposed even in the production variant..
The newer engines glass-fibre plastic IGVs reduce RCS, has partial serpentine ducts along with radar blockers, so pretty much I am seeing RCS reduction measures on these features, but no run of the mill internet enthusiast can determine if that is the best choice or not when comparing other stealth aircrafts.

Radar blockers won't be used in the hostile region,it's serpentine duct is optimised for air flow rather than any advantage of blocking the radar,the engine sits right back to the intake"glass fibre IGVs" russians first need to increase the MTBF of their engines before showing the dreams of Fibre vanes in the engine's,let those work restricted to west and japan,for mere 270sukhois we have produced over 930 engines...wrt engines it has poorest stealth in any form,given with that they have put no effort to make a conformal IRST like the F35 and that big gimbal is a large source of discrete radar waves reflection...

Has anyone ever considered the reasons for the su 57 being made what it is, is because that's just how they want it to be.....the lack of "superior stealth characteristics" is because superior stealth was never envisaged to be its highlight.....everyone is accusing the aircraft for not being something that it was never meant to be.....🤷🏻‍♂️
