probably an attempt at misinformation (China wants to show the world that it has superior military technology, just a wannabe superpower)

That's what I'm thinking, it's probably an RCS or structural test vehicle with no more representative working components than a shadow of a man represents him.

But, while our Raptor is flying in the sky blasting things and evolving, theirs is being (amateurly) lugged around by a flat bed truck. I'm not so worried.


I like to watch you guys commenting on this new aircraft, or others, although little is known. But I keep feeling some "arrogance" here and there, sorry.

There happen to be a news recently that X-47B is shipped from west coast to east coast Navy testing site, on a large truck, with a few pictures.

And, if you look at those pictures, the X-47B was shipped flat, not tilted at an angle.

It has been said the airframe alone is not the prime driver in building a modern fighter. As we can see both the Russian and Chinese designs look respectable, but all commentary tends to side on, just how good they truelly are. A true 5th generation AC (ie F-22) is the benchmark, any contemporary would have to meet or excel. The 4th generation AC are now being refered to as 4+ and 4++, through various upgrades and mods. These new AC should be refered to as 5- until it proven otherwise.

Engines, software, EW, materials, etc., these are the prime movers.

It is what is under the skin that counts

Hysteria is nothing new. Beware, China has aircraft! They rarely venture from the mainland. Beware, China has a massive sub fleet! They average 6 patrols a year (total). Call me when they're competent.
