In China, a dispute arose over a new photo of the J-20 fighter

25

In the Chinese segment of the Internet published noteworthy pictures with the flight operations on fighters of the new generation J-20. The photographs depict the combat aircraft put into service by the PLA Air Force, under whose wings you can see the pylons. They are designated as PF15.


Chinese experts claim that these pylons were equipped with missiles that were used to hit targets at a landfill.

It is important to note here that just a few days ago, China received information about testing J-20 fighters with outboard fuel tanks when it was possible to maneuver and increase the radius of combat use.

In this regard, a dispute arose around a new photo. So, it is suggested that the new pylons also do not mean that the J-20 tested air-to-surface missiles and aviation bombs, and about testing flight modes with additional fuel tanks on an external sling.

It is noted that in any case, testing of the "additional features" of the J-20 fighter is in progress. It is entirely possible that the PLA Air Force is not particularly comfortable with both the range of combat use of these fighters and the amount of weapons that they can carry in the internal compartments.

      But the most, 5 generations, even with "+"How here we were repeatedly quoted the words from the publications of the Chinese media!

    So what did the pylons attach to? There will be a need for stealth - everything will be removed, there will be no need for a small EPR - they use all the useful payload in full. Quite a reasonable approach. I think on the Su-57 similar options experienced

      It’s just that people on their kimonos were tearing that the Su-57 is the 4th generation, the F-35 coating is junk, but we can’t do everything in stealth, in the internal compartments, and in general, one J-20 is better than five F22 and that's it in this spirit, but it turns out that the Air Force’s own are not particularly happy, and here the pilots were drawn, there the propeller can be screwed up, let's see what happens next.

    This proves only one thing - the Chinese handicraft does not suit the Chinese army in the "stealth" version due to weak performance characteristics.

      likely . Won Fu-35, too, in beast mode is more often used than as invisibility. so they ... probably greatly worsens the payload this "stealth" request

    Is it possible that the "20" has a smaller range than the F-22 or F-35? The fuel "intermeddle" even more and without external tanks.

    So the vaunted invisibility ended, on which all those who are not lazy fell.
    and about testing flight modes with additional fuel tanks on an external sling.

    In the photo with tanks and the photo with pylons - their different number, sort of. Not? Badly seen ...

      In the photo with tanks - 2 pylons. In the photo with 4 pylons, 2 are absolutely rocket ("rails" are visible), the other 2 look flimsy for such large tanks. Remind our launchers for R-3 (K-13)

          It happens ... Here from time to time some crowds of "minusers" of everything and everything run around, who just silently throw "sleepers" and dump. Apparently due to the lack of intelligence.

    Call one military conflict with the Chinese - we will continue to discuss all their military achievements ... There were a lot of them in Damascus (like the destroyers in the spratly area when the American destroyer appeared recently ...)

    The clone turned out to be too "gluttonous" - but pylons for hanging tanks!
