Russia falling further behind on weapon development?

National Interests:
Why Russia's New Su-57 Stealth Fighter Might Be a Giant Waste of Time

It appears to be a copy of a current production model with a few stealth features added.  The initial buy is only 12 planes out of a potential of 60 total.  When you consider the Russian air fleet and its naval fleet it is something less than a world beater.  While it may have some rockets and nukes it other hardware appears to be falling behind.  Some of its aircraft would qualify as antiques.
