According to the head of “Rostec” Sergei Chemezov, the Checkmate fighter in its characteristics is comparable to the American F-35. At the same time, the Russian plane is more economically profitable: both in terms of the cost of the car and in terms of the cost of a flight hour. The Su-75 can also take on board a record amount of weapons. Rostec believes that the aircraft has good export prospects.
Chemezov said that the base cost of Checkmate will be $ 30-35 million. He also said that negotiations with foreign delegations had already been held. Now “Rostec” is making proposals for them on the appearance of the aircraft.
