They expect it in 2030, what good is this against the Chinese threat they face now??
LF...The chinese are a long way from deploying their fifth gen aircraft and US is shipping one of their F 22 squadrons there. The F 15 and the F 16 along with the F 35 can easily hold the Chinese till this one comes out.
Satish you are right maybe I shhould have rephrased, Do the Japanese and South Koreans think they will get a 6th generation plane before USA develops one?? Highly doubtful. Chinese always go for numerical superiority while their quality is third class.
US is considering no 6th gens maned fighter but UCAVs, Japs and SK are taking 6gen manned fighter also UCAVs..
And PLAAF will learn its lessons, They are indeed in large no But we need to notice how many fronts they are facing..
