    a fighter plane is good in its own right,j-10/fc20 can be a good plane but until it proves itself it is a no match for the flankers, which is a proven plane worldwide and used by 30 odd countries.
    battles are not fought by adobe photoshop generated planes.which is most often the case for chinese planes.

    I think the J10 will be a much better plane than the JF17s But still Chinese warplanes have to go a long way to be able to sit alongside the Sukhois and Martins and others.

    Serious Wake up call for IAF, better it should get its act in order by ramping up a production of LCA. Since even MRCA is not an answer for J-10B as their huge numbers will be a biggest constraint. Only large number of a LCA is the only answer.

    Anybody who can through light on the aerodynamic performance of J-10? its airframe looks like that of the EF Typhoon but with a single engine and EF Typhoon is said to have a great aerodynamic performance.

    Russians are not stupid to be supplying engines for a plane that will kill their sukhoi highly doubtful.

    That isn't J-10 --- looks like their failed Lavi prototype.

    This is a J-10S, which means a double seats fighter

    You can call it whatever you want --- it is the Lavi prototype.

    Look care fully there is a design difference in the engine intakes of the lavi and the J-10S , which is not to say that the Chinese did not copy the LAVI we all know they did.

    The more correct term is bought.

    The Director General of Israel's Ministry of Defense David Lari "acknowledged in an Associated Press interview that 'some technology on aircraft' had been sold to China and that some Israeli companies may not have 'clean hands'".
