Eh... not again...So far most of your posts have been biased and illogical at time, not to mention you dont want to seem to gather all the facts before you start criticizing at some one.
Only because economy is rising it don't mean that some country will be a new superpower, there are other things that describes superpower like culture influance, R&D spending, technology level etc. etc. etc.China is not a raising power? Really? Unless you have been living inside a well the past 20years, its hard to miss, Have you seen the economic statistics?
They may catchup only if other will stop their R&D phase on further upgrading this and other types of technologies, and this will not happen.However they may catch up, just because someone started late does not mean they wont catch up because these technologies are slow to evolve there is ever possibility others may catch up.
There are no 100% perfect design solutions.Also its not a bad design haveing a big Delta Wing means there is more space for internal weapons load. The Delta wing is also the most Stealthy design by default. The Avro Vulcan was a good example of how Delta wings have low RC by default.
J-20 is big so have more space for internal weapon bays, on the other way this makes it less Stealth than T-50 or F-22 because bigger size means more space reflecting radar waves.
Yes, of course You are right, F-35 is good platform just different to F-22.Their is nothing like that, Both are good platforms, F-35 meant to be cheaper coz of one engine and same as F-16 back in 80s like f-35 now..
F-22 was designed as air superiority fighter superior to... well anything.
F-35 was designed as cheaper multirole fighter that was also intended for export so it is less Stealthy than F-22.
