Although the company’s fifth-generation Sukhoi T-50 fighter aircraft to enter the world market, time is later than the U.S. F-35, but with a more excellent performance, fully able to surpass the Russian-made fighters. Also need to consider is that this half of the world, many countries have encountered challenges from the United States, they want to maintain their policy of independence, it will seek to find other areas in the military high-tech partner .
