That's pretty bad, almost Gripen like in some respects.

They should get props for being the first nation to get a 5th gen in the air, after the United States F-22/35. From the sounds of it though, they're not too happy with the J-20A. The J-20B, sounds like they have higher hopes. I'm going to say though that it's going to take a J-20C to finally get all the issues ironed out.

Chief among those of course, being the new engine. As for J-20 vs. F-35, there's just not much of a comparison IMO. The F-35 looks to be a generation ahead in stealth, and more importantly they're building thousands... not just a few hundered. Even if 500 J-20's are built, the F-35 will have both the qualitative and numerical advantage. And soon with the AIM-260, it'll have the ability to out-stick most other jets.

And in the unlikely event that isn't the case, PCA and/or NGAD will certainly do so...

I can't watch the last (original) video. It says 'Unavailable video'.

As opposed, I can watch the 'edited' video.
“Active stealth” is what the ignorant nay sayers call ECM and pretend like it’s new.

I doubt they are too unpleased by a platform that makes all Flanker variants obsolete.

Guess that someone either "discovered to the gunpowder" or "invented the wheel"... :wink:

Well I do remember there used to be an article from USN that F-35C has a kill ratio of 2:1 against J-20 around year 2015, but I can't find it now. Anyone keeps this article?
