The Ministry of Defense may consider the purchase of Checkmate fighters under the GPV
Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov pointed out that foreign customers are always interested in whether the native armed forces take the equipment they offer for export.
As usually, the government does not want to paint the military into a corner with regards of the LTS, but it is clear from the beginning that the plane has been designed with the VKS in mind and in agreement with them. Such an effort as developing a new fighter and not taking advantage of it in the interests of the country's defence, that simply makes no sense.
