The video confirms many features of the aircraft's appearance that were previously guessed in the sheathed layout, including the presence of a ventral air intake, similar to the photo of a fragment of an airplane model that was distributed by the RBC agency in December 2020, which was on the desktop of Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov. The filmed uncovered model of the LTS aircraft with the painted tail number " 75 " demonstrates the presence of a single engine, a two-keel tail according to the V scheme, devoid of stabilizers, and the presence of internal compartments for outboard weapons.
The aircraft is being developed by PJSC "Sukhoi Company "(as part of JSC "United Aircraft Corporation").
