"Make a Breakthrough": China announced the creation of a new generation carrier-based fighter

China is starting to develop a new carrier-based fighter, which in the future should replace the carrier-based J-15 in service with the PLA Navy. According to the Chinese press, the Chinese company Shenyang Aircraft Ltd. will be engaged in the creation of the new aircraft.


Development of the carrier-based fighter will begin this year, the company declares its intention to "make a breakthrough" in the program for the creation of fifth generation fighters. According to the plans of the developers, the aircraft will be ready by the mid-2030s.

Shenyang Aircraft Ltd does not specify the details of the development, but, most likely, the new carrier-based fighter will be created on the basis of the fifth-generation fighter FC-31 (J-31) already developed by the company.

Plans to develop an improved version of the J-31 for use from the deck of aircraft carriers were announced back in 2018. The Chinese Ministry of Defense considered this aircraft a successful platform for creating a promising carrier-based fighter and opened funding. The carrier-based fighter at that time was designated as J-FX.

The J-FX project will be based on the design of the existing FC-31 aircraft. At the same time, certain improvements are needed. The aircraft needs a folding wing, a reinforced landing gear, a brake hook, etc. In addition, during the restructuring of the finished fighter, it is planned to carry out a serious modernization of the onboard radio-electronic equipment.

In 2020, it became known that Chinese specialists are busy solving the problem of increasing the thrust of the J-31 engine - with bringing the thrust indicators to those parameters that would provide not only super-maneuverability, but also the ability to take off from the deck of aircraft carriers without problems.

To date, the main carrier-based fighter of the Chinese Navy remains the J-15, developed by Shenyang Aircraft Ltd on the basis of the Russian Su-33.

    In the light of recent years, and the frequency of using the words "... A breakthrough is needed ...", "Make a breakthrough" I got the impression that this is a sign of failure ....

      China is no longer a "cycling country", they own high technologies, and they are breaking away from many, so there is no doubt that they will do it.

        China is no longer a "cycling country"

        Many countries, including us, are dumping US debt securities and switching to Chinese ones. The relocation of the World Control Center to China is in full swing. We do not stand aside, and if it were not for the "elite" that was imposed on us in the 90s, this process would have gone faster. The USA and Europe in this new World will be on the outskirts of history.

    All plans of the PRC regarding modern aviation rest on one thing but ENGINES. Probably they are looking forward to our product 30 to order a pilot batch of the Su-57, as they did with the Su-35S.

      it is not necessary to order the Su-57 for this. Since solutions with BLISK, FADEK and KND-924-3 were already on other engines. It's just that at Publishing House 30 they were put together.

              Yes, there is no one to make a light engine. The same "Product 30" is sawing with all the remaining forces. "UEC-Klimov" and this decade will be busy with import substitution, ie. they cannot master the development of a new one, they have mastered the modernization of the RD-33 only relatively recently.

    Well, by the mid-30s, China will "break through" - or buy our 57th "K", or "spoil" its 31st. I would like to leave the dependence of the Chinese on our engines.

      it will not be possible to leave it in dependence, the secret of spraying the blades will be mastered sooner or later, they will increase the resource of their engines and then sink further.

        It is clear that it is not always for the Chinese to guess on alloys, sooner or later they themselves will "reach" by "sticking" or intelligence will "lick" the technology. But I would like not early, but later.

          I think it is not critical for them, even with the resource that they have, they will have enough during the war, it is not important anymore, you can press with quantity, if not quality, but they can adjust a lot. modern avionics, organized production, and as a result already not a weak army.

            Colleague, you can, of course, rivet the clones of MIG29, SU27, but we are talking about the "five" sea-based. And it is critical, colleague, the issue of alloys for not only the blades, but also the combustion chamber is critical for the Chinese.

        spraying shoulder blades? laughing The paddles are not sprayed. They are attached either by means of a lock, or form a single whole with a disk (blisk). Maybe you meant the creation of bimetallic wide-chord hollow blades of increased rigidity?

      Russia has nothing to put up with its carrier-based aircraft.
      Probably no one even thinks about their modernization.
