On the eve of the MAKS-21 international air show, an image of a new Russian combat aircraft, which will be shown on the first day of the exhibition, got into social networks. The aircraft is covered with a cover, so it is very difficult to see the details of the exterior.
Alexei Leonkov, a military expert for the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, believes that the latest tactical single-engine fighter of the fifth generation, created by the Sukhoi design bureau, is hidden under the cover.
The contours of the aircraft, its keel, and landing gear design indicate that it is a lightweight fifth-generation fighter of the Sukhoi family.
- suggested the specialist in an interview RIA News.
