The CP-10/SR-10 appears to be toast

The weird and cute - what else could you call it? - little forward swept wing trainer being developed in Russia appears to have run out time. The flight tests have been suspended due to a lack of money. This is interesting because the company and the Russian MoD both stated they were buying them as a trainer for the Russian Aerospace Forces. That either means the announcement was bogus (something we see a lot of in Russian aerospace, alas) or the Russian MoD changed its mind.

The exact reason doesn't matter too much. Either way, the SR-10 is pretty much toast.

They also can't afford their T-14 tank and the Su-57 is years behind schedule, possibly due to money. The PAK-DA also hasn't been built because Tupolev doesn't have the resources to hire enough people to handle the PAk-DA and the Tu-160 upgrade.

The sanctions are biting hard. The price of oil helps.
