    No secret in China, how can we be so transparent?
    A J31 variant, functions like US CALF , CALF was a competitor of F35C in the bidding but got turned down.

    According to Jane's, J18 is mounted with 2 vector jet engines for horizontal thrust, but it is not sure if this fighter jet adopts F35 style lift or the one of Yak 141.
    Estimated range 2200 km, speed 2.5M.
