The traditions of IAF say that ant bhala toh sab bhala doesn’t happen without phoren imports.
AMCA already had less weapon capacity and was further reduced to 4 from earlier 5 missiles so AMCA is just for stealth, IAF will still need a 5th gen weapons truck and that is Su-57.
su57 has a chance but not in near future as 36 f4 rafales are almost confirmed (will also be good for settling offset deal issue with dassault) but in 2025-2026 india would be looking at just few squads (36 units) of su57 to stop gap amca

Not stop gap AMCA, Fact that you need
1. Purchasing weapons only way to keep Russia on your side
2. AMCA already had only 5 internal hardpoints which are now reduced to just 4, so it is not a flying tank.
3. Su-57 will give an edge in 5th generation air superiority.
4. Su-57 will help us increase squadron strength.
5. The Izdeliye 30 Engine on Su-57 is a reliable engine and on par with western specs of lifespan.

Weapons agree. Su-57 highly debatable.
2. AMCA already had only 5 internal hardpoints which are now reduced to just 4, so it is not a flying tank.
6 in IWB for Su-57. Not a tank itself.
3. Su-57 will give an edge in 5th generation air superiority.
4. Su-57 will help us increase squadron strength.
Both true.
5. The Izdeliye 30 Engine on Su-57 is a reliable engine and on par with western specs of lifespan.
Not developed. Not even sure on timelines.

Just for the learning curve it is a good suggestion. 2 squadrons will also allow IAF to give direction to the AMCA program.

And will give a deterrence to our enemies.
Sidebays are for mk 2 , as per member , maybe they wanna keep weight in check to give some limited supercruise at least .

Mk 2 will be chonkier , also we would have some real money by then so maybe we fast track upgraded engine based on this engine based kn the basic engine we develop in jv

Russia Ready To Discuss The Sale Of Su-57, Su-35 Fighter Jets With Turkey – FSMTC
Russia is ready to negotiate with the deliveries of fifth-gen fighters Su-57 and generation 4++ fighters Su-35 with Turkey, as well as to cooperate in the development of the latest Turkish combat aircraft, Valeria Reshetnikova, the spokeswoman of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), told reporters.


Earlier, Turkish Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank told Sputnik that Ankara did not rule out the possibility of buying Su-35s and Su-57s, but the priority was to develop its own fifth-generation fighters.

“As for the potential plans for Ankara to purchase Russian Su-35 and Su-57 fighters, it is worth noting that the Turkish side is fully informed about their technical specifications. If there is an application from Turkey for these aircraft, we are ready to negotiate this issue,” Reshetnikova said.

She noted that Turkey had been intending for a long time to implement the project of its own fifth-generation fighter TF-X and Russia is ready to cooperate on this program if it receives a request.
