“The prototype of the new Checkmate single-engine fighter jet has arrived in the UAE to participate in the Dubai Airshow international airshow. The aircraft has been delivered to Dubai World Central by An-124 aircraft”, –  the state-owned corporation said.

In addition to the Dubai International Airshow, the Su-75 prototype will also take part in a number of closed and open to the media events.

There is speculation that the fighter/mock-up design will be named Su-75 in keeping with the firm’s traditions. So far, the entire PR campaign around the aircraft is based on the term Checkmate, which means “knight move”, or checkmate performed by a knight piece, in this case.
