Sukhoi Su-75 Checkmate

The first flight of the aircraft should take place in 2023, deliveries should begin in 2026-2027. The cost of the aircraft is projected in the range of $ 25 to $ 30 million.


This fighter is an initiative development from the Sukhoi Design Bureau. At the same time, it is planned that it will become “modular”, that is, the complete set will be determined by the customer. At the same time, the OKB is ready to discuss deliveries both with foreign customers and with their native MO. Brief characteristics were also presented:

Su-75 Checkmate

The Su-75 Checkmate, produced by Sukhoi, is marketing itself as a single engine stealth fighter on par, but cheaper, than the F-35.

KYIV, UKRAINE: On Tuesday, Russia’s Unified Aircraft-Building Corporation (OAK) and the Sukhoi Aircraft Company used the opening day of the Moscow Aviation and Space Expo (MAKS) to take the wraps off a new single-engine stealth fighter. The roll-out of this airplane, now called the Su-75 Checkmate Light Tactical Aircraft, was made the centerpiece of the traditional Day One visit to the show by Russian President Vladimir Putin.


t’s a new design that Moscow hopes will create a niche for its combat aircraft industry in the export market. Their intent is to upend sales by competitor aircraft built by other nations — the Swedish JAS-39E/F Gripen, the Lockheed Martin F-35. and even the Shenyang J-35, a Chinese plane in development even longer than the Su-75 — by offering a cheaper, Russian-made alternative.

But there are serious questions to be answered about both the marketing strategy and the plane’s technical capabilities, which could combine to add the Su-75 to the long list of military aviation programs that never found life as an export.

Still, a promotional video released just a few days ago reveals that Russia has not given up on a sale to the oil-rich and financial powerhouse Gulf state. The film opens with a pilot in the UAE packing up his flight kit after receiving a scramble alert on his smartphone.

The Su-57 has been produced thus far in small numbers (only 78 total on order) with the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) as the only customer — and has proven far more expensive than initially projected. It was also hamstrung when India, seen as the more promising export customer for the Su-57, declined to become an R&D or production partner; Russian fighter aircraft programs traditionally depend heavily on external customers to help launch and finance production.

Just like the PAK-FA, the Light Strike Fighter (LTS) ‘Checkmate’ could be the name given during the development phase. It may well settle for the established Sukhoi naming system of Su-XX. Interestingly, the Su-57 designated was derived from the adding up of 35 and 22 (US F-35 and F-22), according to UAC officials who said the designation indicated an aircraft that had the combined qualities of the two leading US jets.
