I think the Su-57 is way more beautiful than the F-22 Raptor. Much more sleeker and refined. If combined with Israelis/French avionics and western practices of production, this Su-57 would run supreme of the skies over F-22s and F-35s.
SU-57 has higher RCS than F-22/F-35. I don't know about J-20.

As of now the Raptor remains unmatched by any other Stealth aircraft in existence due to its superior stealth. F-22 and SU-57 were both designed to suit 2 Different doctrines and both perform their respective duties very well from my POV.

F-22 was designed as more of an offensive stealth fighter whereas the SU-57 was designed as a counter Stealth aircraft.

Well, I whole heartedly agree that Russian planes are beauty and much more sexy looking till before 5th Gen.

However with 5th Gen, I don't find any plane closer to F-22 Raptor in looks and beauty. Su-57 is distant second. The whole engine nozzle area is simply badly done in Su-57.

F-22 uses rectangular Engine exhausts to provide stealth from the rear and this nozzle also reduces the IR signature of the aircraft. Also such design makes it look much more modern as compared to conventional nozzle fighters like F-35/F-16/F-15/SU-57.

Last year in Desember there were Claims on the internet that Russian S-70 UCAV and SU-57 will implement flat engine nozzles for enhanced Stealth but till date I have never seen any S-70 or SU-57 prototype implement such Technic.

Nah. Su-57 is first in looks and beauty. F-22 looks like an overhumped bulging whale or something.

It's not just Russian platforms, there are claims made by every country about their respective Weopon's platforms, be it India, US, China etc.
We do see the results of CLAIMS from other countries though. For Russians it is mostly always remain stuck to CLAIMS.

Russia is no exception, like I said again, all countries like China, India, US, France make various Claims about their Weopons. Russia is not the only one who is supposively "Stuck" on its Claims.

Is this color scheme only for current phase where they are evaluating the platform?
What would be color scheme once these are officially incorporated and deployed in RuAF?
SU-57s which have entered service with the RuAF have this type of colour scheme to their airframes :

This is for the Airforce, I can't say anything about the Navy though. Generally if you see, Russian Naval Aviation jets have a black camo to them whereas the RuAF jets generally have a blue camo to them.

Maybe if SU-57 enters service with Russian Naval Aviation as offshore squadrons, than we might see a different colour scheme.
