The main feature of the light Russian fifth-generation fighter Checkmate, which is being prepared to be produced in Russia, is stealth. A captain of the first rank of the reserve, a military expert, spoke about this in a conversation with Lenta.ru Vasily Dandykin.
“We have a fifth-generation heavy fighter – Su-57. Now it will be easy to gain air superiority. This is a continuation of the line of legendary Moment. As far as we know, this fighter will be single-engine. It will be inconspicuous with good characteristics in terms of maneuverability and speed,” the specialist said.
The Checkmate fighter has no analogues in the world
Earlier it became known that in Russia started preparation for production of the first samples of light fighters of the fifth generation Checkmate. It is noted that the project was presented in 2021, but changes were made to it, which also adjusted the timing of the first flight.
