By the end of August, the first 150 cars with diesel engines running on ether fuel will arrive in Moscow, according to the Moscow government information center. The automobiles which will run on alternative fuel will discharge much fewer harmful fumes into the atmosphere. For example, the discharge of nitric oxide will be 2.5 times less compared to a typical automobile. Mass-produced ether-fuel will not cost any more than regular diesel fuel. In the near future, 280 thousand diesel cars that run on ether fuel are planned to be produced, and a number of buses. In the future it is planned that all city transportation will run on ether fuel.
US and Chinese experts believe that the Sukhoi Checkmate aircraft will become competition to their F-35 and FC-31 fighter jets in the arms market.
