Putin Inspects New Russian Fighter Jet Unveiled At Air Show by Skynet45(m): 8:37pm On Jul 20
.MOSCOW, July 20 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin inspected a prototype of a new Sukhoi fifth-generation fighter jet on Tuesday that Russia unveiled at its annual MAKS air show with an eye on export markets.

The warplane, given the project name "Checkmate", is likely to be touted as a rival to the U.S. F-35 stealth fighter, said Oleg Panteleyev, head of the Aviaport analytical agency.

The warplane is expected to take to the skies in 2023 with a first batch due to be produced in 2026, Yury Slyusar, head of the United Aircraft Corporation told reporters.

Russia plans to produce 300 of the aircraft over 15 years once serial production begins, he said.

Rostec, Russia's state aerospace and defence conglomerate, said the plane was hard to detect and would have low operating costs.

Rostec's chief, Sergei Chemezov, said it would cost $25 million to $30 million, the RIA news agency reported. Moscow expected demand from nations in the Middle East, Asia Pacific region and Latin America, he said.

"Our aim is to make the cost per flight hour as low as possible, to make it economical not only to buy but also to operate," said Slyusar.

Russia has successfully produced prototypes of new weapons systems in recent years but has sometimes struggled to move to serial production.

Under Putin, it has invested heavily in military aircraft and new armaments, both for its own armed forces and also to boost export revenue from weapon sales. Many of its new weapons are still based on Soviet-era technology from the Cold War.

Russia already has fourth-generation fighter jets - the heavy-class Sukhoi Su-27 and light-class Mikoyan MiG-29. It has one heavy-class fifth generation fighter jet, the Su-57, but no light-class equivalent, Panteleyev said.

"Light-class fighter jets are more in demand in the world than heavy-class ones - they are cheaper and more suitable for states that don't have large territories," he told Reuters.

In 2011, Russia used the MAKS air show to unveil the Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter.

United Aircraft, which is part of Rostec, owns the Sukhoi aircraft manufacturer that dates back to the Soviet era.

Alpha Jets that can't compete with any mordern Jets. Nigerians should just be grateful it's a waste of time to invade Nigeria. Even south Africa will whoop our ass

The amount of money Russia and America and others set aside in their defense budget annually will make the entire world a paradise.

While there is hunger and starvation and underdevelopment in poor countries, these rich countries invest their wealth in hyper expensive weapons because of the fear of war that never happens.

What is their concern with developing nation's ,are they responsible for your underdevelopment. Hold your leaders accountable and leave them alone. Russia is the largest producer of wheat and flour in the world their problem is not hunger but it's Africa problem

I said projection dog fights ...the F35 was never designed to engage another plane up close ..It will score most of its kills before the other plane ever realizes it's there ..that future of air superiority combat .

If you grow and develop without carrying others along, soon their problems and flaws will spill over and affect you and/or your children.

You don't understand this, but America and other world super powers understand this that's why they introduce education and medicals and other interventions to underdeveloped countries. Same reason why they've been fighting in Afghanistan for years.

My argument is that these superpowers have the financial ability to wipe out poverty and ignorance which is among the biggest threat to world peace. Why not do this instead of stocking up weapons.

*F22. F35 is mostly for ground target and situational awareness. While F22 has the superior maneuverability for dog fights.

But Russians have always have the edge when it comes to maneuverability with fighter jets and also the better pilots. While American doctrine has always been about electronics and more functions.

In 10 out of 10 simulations the F35 will always like the SU 29 Flanker on every encounter as long as the F35 doesn't allow the flanker get close enough to detect it , if the flanker detects the F35 the flanker is more likely to win that round .

Russians have the Su-35 Flanker and F-35 stands zero chance against it in combat. The only reason why Su-35 isn’t a 5th generation jet is due to its lack of stealth capability, however, it’s up there with F-22.

Su-35 intercepted F-16s and F-15Cs which are the two best American jets in terms of maneuverability, apart from F-22, in Syria on multiple occasions.

F-35 is good for what it was built for but it stands no chance in a dog fight with comparable fighter jets.

Read what I said well ...The F35 is not designed for close quarter dogfights...I clearly stated that , I said it will take out any other fighter before they know it's even around and that the idea

I highly doubt that.

The avg 4th gen jet should be able to see it once it’s within striking distance and it’s not as fast as the older jets. There’s a reason why it’s always flanked by F-16s and F-15Cs when going on a mission.

I think its best quality is its ability to hit ground targets with precision while also evading radar.
