The Sukhoi-57 will rival the American F-22 and Chinese Chengdu J-20 and Shenyang J-31 combat planes, the Kremlin has boasted.

Military officials claim “cutting-edge” stealth technology will make the £120million jet difficult to track on enemy radars.

Russian air force chief Viktor Bondarev described the aircraft, which have a top speed of 1,615 mph, as a “wonderful machine”.

He said: “Every country probably wants planes such as this, and we have them.

“The decision has been taken, the plane has been christened. Su-57 is what we are going to call it now.”

The fifth-generation jet will carry K-77M missiles with a reported range of 125 miles, according to Newsweek.

Russia has previously claimed the jet will be cheaper to produce than its US equivalent, with units costing less than £120million.

However, the Su-57 has another year of testing before units enter military service in 2019.

The pre-production batch will consist of 12 aircraft, according to Yuri Slyusar, the CEO of the United Aircraft Corporation.
