The CD forum said there are 27 J10c and 7 J20 in Chengdu airpoart for 2021 Chinese new year delivery ceremony.
The CCTV footage also showed a J-20 making aerial maneuvers, and some frames showed that this J-20 was not equipped with a Luneburg lens. Further, the lines of the aircraft's side missile bay were different from previous J-20 fighters, a separate report by CCTV said on Monday."Air Force pilots in the new age will inherit the spirit of 'aerial bayonet fighting,' train to prepare for combat, be ready at all times for combat, and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and dignity," Sun Teng said.
During 2004-2008, we with Indian members would exchange the ideas between LCA, J10 and JF17；they are in the same generation, we have enough patiences to discuss on specific details like engines, airframes, weapons, disadvantages, advantages ...That is an article copied from the global times, a propaganda arm of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). True stealth is not as simple as use of dielectric materials or bandpass filters; it is far more complicated, and currently out of the reach of the PLAAF. Any modern electronically scanning wideband radar will be able to detect the reflection from the J-20 radar/radome as well as the several gaps, small features, optics pod, etc. The J-20 is a great propaganda tool for the CCP/PLA, but the truth is that in terms of materials technology (including radar absorbent materials and other techniques), the PLAAF has not arrived yet, which is why they kept the canards and other features detrimental to stealth on the J-20: It doesn't make any sense to delete them when you have far bigger reflectors of radar in the front. The J-20 at best is a reduced RCS design that is 2 decades late. This is why the J-20 is still detectable by modern electronically scanning radars (India, Taiwan and others have picked it up), even from the front. Its boxy frame with low power, unreliable engines makes it even worse if it ever gets into a dogfight. But it's a great propaganda tool to keep the Chinese people impressed and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.
If one mentions downfall doesn’t mean he is mocking.During 2004-2008, we with Indian members would exchange the ideas between LCA, J10 and JF17；they are in the same generation, we have enough patiences to discuss on specific details like engines, airframes, weapons, disadvantages, advantages ...
I see there are only downplays to J20 now, maybe it's not because of Chinese avi industry didn't progress, just because Indian dosen't have any equivalent ...
Never said J20 is perfect bird, i really expect some day we would make comparison with Indian counterpart, i just don't know how long i should wait.If one mentions downfall doesn’t mean he is mocking.
