A Russian next-generation single-engine fighter jet has been spotted at the Zhukovsky International Airport outside Moscow on Wednesday, July 15.

The pictures first began to circulate on social media on Jul. 15, 2021, but it is unclear this is a mock-up of a future fighter or real prototype.

Just this week, Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC, part of the state tech corporation Rostec) reported that it plans to unveil the new military aircraft on the first day of the MAKS-2021 international aerospace show.


“Russia is one of the few countries of the world that possesses full-cycle technologies to produce advanced aircraft systems and is a recognized trendsetter in creating combat planes. We are convinced that the new product developed by UAC specialists will evoke a genuine interest both in our country and in other regions of the world, including among our rivals abroad,” the press office said in a statement.

Also, UAC tweeted: “Everything is easier than it seems. #Checkmate. Something seems to be on the way.”

Some sources said that the new fighter will call the Checkmate.




Rostec also opened the project’s website, where a countdown of the plane’s debut show on July 20 began overnight to Tuesday, the statement says.

In addition, earlier in May 2021, the TASS news agency reported that the Russian defense industry is developing a next-generation single-engine fighter.

According to TASS, Russian state aerospace company Sukhoi is now developing new light tactical fighter aircraft.

“The Sukhoi company is developing a single-engine light tactical plane with the takeoff weight of up to 18 tonnes. The plane’s maximum speed will be above 2 Mach. It will also have super-maneuverability and improved takeoff and landing performance, thanks to a thrust vector control engine. The plane’s thrust-to-weight ratio will be above 1,” the news agency reported, citing an industry source.

In general, a single-engine aircraft is better in terms of cost and (less) maintenance requirement and Russia plans to develop new light combat aircraft to replace the aging fleet of Soviet-era MiG-29 fighters and Su-25 close-support aircraft.

Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov told reporters in December 2020 that the company was working on the concept of an advanced single-engine light-and medium-class piloted and unmanned combat plane.

“Work is underway to develop a combat aviation system of the future in its light and medium classes. Under the design, this may be a universal platform in the manned and unmanned versions. The company is working on the concept and the operational requirements for such a platform. We are doing this on our own initiative so far, without [federal] budget funds,” the Rostec chief said.

There's a good chance that we see this beauty get inducted into our airforce in meaningful nos.

This singled engined 5th gen LMFS ish jet from the stables of Sukhoi won't pose a challenge to Tejas mk2. But it may ruin the chances of Rafale F4 from being shortlisted in the MRCA contest.

We will be needing the mk2 to replace our Jag and Mirage fleets.

And Amca wont be coming anytime before 2028.

What needs to be seen is whether this is the actual aircraft or a mock up and whether it has had its first flight .

Contrary to what people had been speculating ,this is a Sukhoi jet and not a MiG .

Checkmate ! checkmate to what ? Tejas-MK2 ? We don't need this chick in our Air force. I'm more than 100% sure that Russians will derail not only Tejas Mk-2 but also AMCA. Enough of this russian stock

Single engine fighter that too with Russian engine. No thanks by the time it gets ready both amca and mwf would have taken it's first flight.
