I mentioned Su-57 because it is theory, there was some strange downing of Ukrainian planes, it doesn't fit in MiG-31 attack from Russia it is too far, Su-35 wasn't close either, and some heavy SAM could do it but because of low flying tactics of Ukrainian pilots it is quite unrealistic too, media did wrote it was S-300 with its biggest missile but as I said it is quite unlikely because target fly low, and I dont think they have active seeker either (for example A-50 did track target and provide course correction but that would require missile with ARH seeker.

Which of these “strange downing” are you talking about? Russia has forward deployed plenty of SAM systems from S-300/400 to Buk and Tor systems. Given how quickly Russian MoD releases Su-35 footage showing its use in combat, the fact that no footage like that for Su-57 has been seen, even though Sukhoi and Russia are actively trying to sell the Su-57E, is a damning lack of evidence.
