Based on incomplete images, military experts believe that this new fighter is likely to carry the Su-75 designation, not Su-59 as previously speculated
The design of the fighter is basically the same as the previous 3D simulation, with a single engine, air intakes under the nose. The cockpit is accessed through a sliding door to the rear. Initially, many experts said that this could be a Mikoyan fighter, then based on available images the fighter is expected to carry the designation Su-59. However, with the number 75 revealed on the fuselage, many people believe that the fighter will be codenamed 75, not the Su-59 as previously rumored. As a rule, new Russian fighters will have the same number as their name. In the past, the Su-57 fighter appeared at the MAKS exhibition with the number 057 on the fuselage.
Indeed, the latest Russian fighter has almost completely been revealed. With the advantage of only a single engine, the production and operating costs of this new stealth fighter are expected to be much lower than the current 5th generation fighters. Currently, except for the US F-35 fighter, other 5th generation fighters from Russia and China, all use twin engines.
With what has been revealed, do you see something very familiar, but not like Russian planes, but like the Western X-32, a failure in the American single-engine fighter competition. This similarity can be easily seen through the superficial features. The air intake is arranged under the cockpit: Instead of being arranged on the sides like the 4th generation Russian aircraft such as the MiG-29 or the Su-27/30 and the latest Su-57 family aircraft. The new Russian model uses the same air intake as the X-32.
The new Russian fighter has a V-shaped tail – This is also a rather strange design for Russian aircraft models. The vertical V-shaped tail has appeared on the Su-57, but this aircraft still has a horizontal tail, while the new model has a tail similar to the American X-32 or YF-23.
The strange Russian plane has only a single engine. Perhaps this comes from the need for export customers, because many countries need a single-engine light fighter to reduce the cost of use and maintenance, which American models like the F-16 or F-35 are doing very well.
Objectively speaking, it can be seen that the Russian fighter has a clear resemblance to the American model. With a gap of 20 years, the details and avionics of these two aircraft will have a lot of differences, but there is no denying the large similarity between these two Russian and American stealth fighters.
