designed to compete with the US F-35 and capable of striking six targets simultaneously.

Dubbed "The Checkmate", the plane was first shown to a reportedly "pleased" President Vladimir Putin before the launch at a biennial airshow outside Moscow.

"Our task is for this plane to be offered en masse to customers starting from 2026," general director of the United Aircraft Corporation, Yury Slyusar, said.

With a price tag of between $25-30 million (21-25 million euros), it will be able to carry drones and launch them during flights.

Slyusar said he expected nearly 300 orders in the next 15 years mainly from the Middle East, Asia and Latin America for a price "seven times lower" than the F-35.

He said plane is capable of destroying "fifth generation foreign aircraft" and "is designed to withstand the sixth generation systems that may appear in the coming decades".

🔰 Sukhoi already build a Airframe for ground testing. They are doing system tests of the aircraft. (Not Ground Runs)
🔰 They are developing new engine. Initial prototype will powered by Saturn AL-41 Engine (which is equipped on Su-57).
