Especially the 747 is hilarious :D

 

Apart From that, do I see right with the elevators facing towards the engine/ are located inwards of the vertical stabs? That is rather new ! At least to me!

That camouflage makes it look a bit like the Hasegawa iDOLM@STER range. I wonder if they will be the first to produce a kit of it.

Air combat is going to be very tricky with all the combatants looking the same these days.  That could be an F-35 under that tarp :hmmm:

It will no doubt be called the F-35ski by someone.

The Russian curiosity Checkmate is a Real Prototype not A model 

Any pics of it actually flying then?

 

Cheers,

To resume the information:

Delta wing with thrust control system. Thrust control system with suport of control surfaces next to the nozzle.

Delta wing reduces cross section!

Good combination by idea.

Maybe it works out!

Happy modelling

Perhaps myself, on the previous page...

Indeed you did. That will teach me to read the whole thread before I post a reply.

kind of innovative, no? and saw tooth nozzle as well.... all there what you need! :thumbsup:

 

on a lighter note, the cockpit also has the big screen...  so must be at least equal to the F-35 ;)

I'm hoping Zvezda for the kit, most likely in 1/72 scale. ;)

Zvezda would make a good job of producing a kit of the Checkmate, but it will change before it finally enters Service with any Air Force.

The Checkmate will not receive SU-?designation until it enters Russian service. NATO might  designate it Fantasia.

Not necessarily . there are quite a few instances of Russian aircraft receiving AF designations that never enter service - (and some also received NATO/ASCC names)

 

From the top of my head (a barren place these days)....

 

Tu-98 Backfin.

Beriev A-40/Be-42 Mermaid

Tu-91 Boot,

Su-47 Firkin etc etc.

 

NATO might  designate it Fantasia.

 

That doesn't comply with the NATO/ASCC/ASIG rule of two syllables for jet-powered aircraft.....

 

Nitpick mode off.....

not really convinced... the relatively narrow top part of the air intake should give much resistance to the airflow (bundary layer). But we'll see...

Angel Interceptor confirmed!

Does this mean the VVS (or whatever they call themselves nowadays) will be bringing back female pilots?? :D

 

Interestingly enough, the majority of the stealth shaping appears to be on the lower and frontal aspects, combined with that fairly sizeable wing I wonder if it is intended to operate at very high altitudes? A bit like the F-22 does?

Well, I am not the one claiming it isn't just a mockup but a functional prototype. 😎

Listened to an interview yesterday re the state of the russian air force and that the Su-57 fixes the weakness of the flanker in comparison with Western 4.5 gen aircraft. I assume this is doing the same for the mig-29 as stop gaps whilst they try and get a 6th gen fighter before the US like we are doing with the Tempest II

Weakness of the Sukhoi Su-27 against western aircraft?It is very interesting to observe how western "experts" are trying to talk bad Russian aircraft.And people say that the cold war is over.The Russian aircraft industry has nothing to envy to the west.Reading interviews it is more the other way round.
