I don't know. They have at least a couple of manned aircraft I know of that are at least at the demonstrator phase. Not necessarily for future programs, but new technologies. It could be one of them with just one person being involved.
Someone in one of my Facebook groups suggested one of the Su-27s. That would make sense, and fit.
