China has demonstrated a new prototype stealth fighter J-20

Video recordings of jogging through the third prototype of the Chinese stealth fighter "stealth" J-20 appeared on the Internet. Chinese engineers repainted their aircraft following the example of the Russian T-50 and gave the experts a reason to assume that the car would be used as a front bomber.


The rollout of the third sample of the Jian-20 (J-20) fighter with tail number "2011" took place at aviation base of Chengdu. The plane made a number of runs on the runway and, after acceleration, braked with a parachute. Experts noted that the design of the aircraft has undergone a number of changes: compared with the first two flight prototypes, it has other air intakes, the rear of the fuselage has changed, and under the nose there is a protrusion of an optical-electronic target tracking system designed to more effectively fire at ground targets .

The speaker unit of the opto-electronic sensor reduces the "stealth" -the characteristics of the aircraft, however, as noted by The Global Aviation Report, it allows you to attack ground targets, not posing as radio emission from the radar. According to foreign experts, this system will allow the J-20 to perform the role of a front-line bomber. For comparison, this system is not installed on the F-20 fighter. However, The Aviationist notes that this system is designed for the early detection of subtle enemy aircraft.

At the same time, the media report that the Russian fourth-generation AL-31FN engine is still installed on the aircraft; it is not possible to create our own new engine, or at least copy the AL-31FN PRC.

Among other innovations on the third copy of the J-20 is its gray color with bright edges near the tail (a similar approach to the camouflage scheme was recently adopted by the developers of the fifth-generation Russian fighter T-50, PAK-FA). Previously, all J-20 had a black color.

J-20 is not the only stealth istribetel, we are currently developing China. Another combat aircraft with stealth technology is the J-31, which is smaller than the J-20. It is expected that the J-20 will go into service with the Air Force of the People’s Liberation Army of China no earlier than 2017.

      I won’t be surprised if the super-super fighter of the 125th generation is ultimately demonstrated! laughing The Chinese have their own reckoning of aviation generations lol Only here, apart from individual reckoning, this figure does not mean anything. Again, the next Chinese hodgepodge will be held a standard PR-campaign, with the goal of boiling up more expensive and breaking the contracts of Russia and other manufacturers (not just aircraft, as the Chinese usually do).

      Yes, the new direction of science in the Air Force is beginning to work well, what can I say, And the engine will not be flattered, They just have time and they use it expertly, the Chinese Academy of Sciences begins to give projects to the mountain, and to build the industry, Not all at once, Who could have thought 5 years back that China was laid by the Aircraft Carrier and it was laid, and judging by fragmentary data it’s completely different from what they have, As long as our industry gets out of the pit where it sits, China will completely change for many years,

      I do not know what else the experts noted, but I, as not an expert, still want to note that the Chinese are relentlessly hammering both PGO and rotary keels into one point, and when the engine is brought to the "mind" I don’t know I don’t know. But here, of course, I would like to hear Sergey's commentary vaf.

    Well, and something else was stolen and brought to life on his pepelats. What not to take away - stubborn boys, anyway, they will build it, and even if it is worse than the American or our aircraft, they will find their buyer (the same Pakistan).

        Chemical analysis of the alloy does not reveal the technology of its production, which is in the first place, and is know-how. Even knowing the exact chemical composition of the alloy, in practice you will not be able to create a sample with the same strength and temperature parameters as the original. This is something that cannot be copied. That's why they buy engines from us.

      No, the photo of the article contains J-20. The distance between the keels is greater (and they themselves are shorter), the air intakes are thicker below. In addition, you can look for even more smaller differences.

        And you seem to be right about the Raptor. There are differences. The air intakes are different, and so are the keels. It's a pity the visibility is very bad in the photo. But this is definitely not the J-20 that was shown before. PGO then no. The aerodynamic layout is apparently already different.

    Right! Better team up with American friends against China. After all, Americans are so peaceful and so do not like war. Not that these terrible Chinese are under the yoke of blood red! Togo and look will attack in small groups of 10-20 millions!

    This is actually a joke. In fact, the opposite is true. China now has only one adversary - the SGA. And if the Chinese do not ally with us, then they will not survive. Therefore, from China there can be no threat to us so far! And indeed, all these tales about the Chinese threat - with an American stockpile.

    All that they were able to collect for themselves was a 3rd generation aircraft, which was pushed like Pakistan.
    Of course, there are successes, but "having come to the boxing section, you should not immediately climb the champions."

        Probably not only in size, but also in missions, since, to the detriment of stealth, it has an optical observation system for ground targets. A typical IB will turn out. Interestingly, and the task of winning air superiority was also "hanged"?

      God bless him, with this PGO. In the zero position, it will "shine" a little, but the fact that metallized spraying was not applied to the lantern, and the pilot's seat works as a corner reflector - this puzzled me. Or are they going to do this on pre-production and further copies of their J-20? But what about stealth? After all, it needs to be realistically evaluated in a multivariate performance.

    Once again confirms my conviction that China has great ambitions, but so far the plane is in a prototype, although it is already trying to fly. The most important thing is that China is working in this regard and quite intensively, which is very worrying. It will take China just a couple of years for everything fighters in the world were Chinese when they truly experienced a 5th generation airplane

    If one prototype differs from another in the shape of the air intakes, then China does not have a good wind tunnel to blow through the shape of the air intakes and not bother. Indeed, it’s a habit to copy everything, first copy it and then see what came of it.

    the entire military advanced world may still consider official aircraft as pepelats, nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers are not formidable enough, power plants - with Chinese batteries, etc., etc. And the Chinese silently copy, silently try, silently launch these samples to the moon, and, here, the people who are inconsistent, use their own samples to drop others from orbit. And it inspires respect, and given the population, potential and nuclear club, it’s not just that. I’m thinking, what if they cease to be silent, straighten their strained back and smile broadly at the whole world (the last) ....
