Media: China used stolen F-35 technologies in its fighter

Media: China used stolen F-35 technologies in its fighterChinese aircraft designers mastered the creation of the American fighter-bomber Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II during cyber espionage, which was conducted by Chinese intelligence agencies from 2007, the American media reported, citing sources in the US Department of Defense.


According to Washington Freebeacon, Lockheed Martin has fallen victim to years of cyber espionage behind targeted US government and industry programs.

In January, the Global Times newspaper reported, citing sources in the Chinese Communist Party, that key technologies from the American Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter had arrived at the disposal of the People's Republic of China, the Chinese aircraft manufacturers used them to create the fifth-generation fighter J-20 (Jiang-20) ) modification number 2011. At the same time, the publication did not confirm the fact of data theft.

According to the Global Times, the acquired technologies include an electro-optical guidance system, an adjustable jet nozzle and the latest radar systems.

In this case, the US military believes that the technology was stolen. According to representatives of the US Department of Defense, the data “leaked” through the efforts of the Chinese Bureau of Technical Intelligence in Chengdu Province. From there, the information fell into the state corporation of China Aviation Industry Corp (AVIC).

AVIC's subsidiary, Chengdu Aircraft, used technology to create J-20, which was presented at the end of February 2014. About this Freebeacon reported sources in American intelligence.

The Pentagon fears that the leakage of technology could occur due to the joint venture agreement signed by General Electric and AVIC in 2011, the year.

It is noted that the administration of President Barack Obama ignored the concerns of the US military, which contributed to the systematic easing of control over the transfer of technology to China.

Assumptions by US officials about “stolen technology” were confirmed by photos of J-20, which were circulated by Chinese media.

The images of this prototype first appeared in December 2013 and in January 2014. It seemed that the photos were digitally processed, but the 2011 tail number was visible in the pictures, and there were also changes that were aimed at improving engine performance and combat capability.

The upper edge of the engine air inlets is sloped down, the keels are cut along the upper rear edge, the niches of the main chassis and the compartments weapons have more pronounced "teeth" to reduce radar visibility, the cockpit canopy has a "visor", as on the F-35.

In addition, the Chinese fighter used a distributed system of infrared sensors, as in the US F-35. One of the most significant developments in the J-20 is the presence of an electron-optical guidance system under the nose of the machine.

Experts believe that technologies “stolen” by China seriously undermine the uniqueness of the American F-35.

The first test flight of Jian-20 was made in 2011, but at that time the prototype created by the Chinese did not reach the level set by the promising developments of competitors - the Russian T-50 fighter and the American F-22.

Among the shortcomings of the J-20, military observers pointed to insufficient engine power, the inability to fly at supersonic speeds, the imperfection of the radar system and stealth technology, which makes it possible to reduce the aircraft’s visibility in the radar range.

      And I'm not surprised, but I'm not surprised that the Chinese are accused of plagiarism, it has become fashionable. The Chinese aircraft is much larger, what kind of stolen technology it says here if it's just another machine similar to the American ridicule from far away.
      Chinese:

      It looks like a prototype

      American:

      What they have in common is only the principle of flight.
      Do not be surprised that the Chinese aircraft will be adopted earlier.

        It is believed that the Chinese were able to steal the DAS (Distributed Aperture System). it
        a distributed aperture infrared system is designed to detect passive aircraft and missiles and display data on the helmet-mounted pilot system.

        This was determined by the location and type of sensors of this system on a Chinese machine (click it!):

      Although China copies a lot. But in its place it is difficult to come up with a new look for the aircraft, the USSR / Russia and the USA depicted and created almost everything that is possible.

    Maybe the Chinese have stolen something, but outwardly their plane looks more elegant than the regular one.

      To me, for example, he is not very much and seems "elegant" laughing .Yes, at first glance it shows a mixture of F-22 and MiG-44, and the Chinese combined them somewhat ugly ... No.

    In fact, the "Chinese" is a modified MiG 1,44; the "penguin" is the Yak-141 in an American wrapper. Why then do the Americans not notice that Grippen, Rafael and Eurofighter are very similar to the MiG 1,44 only with an external suspension?

        I'm sorry. Wrong. Googled. Here, rather, on the contrary - 1.44 was created based on the experience of those three, well, and brought to the prototype of the API. (judged only by the "duck" scheme, and purely outwardly they are similar)

          1.44 is faster than 5th, but it is still very good for the 90s, and should "have" become the strongest fighters of the 20th century ...

    But isn’t it messed up in the article? Maybe not J-20 but J-31? The Chinese are now developing two aircraft at the same time.

    Here it is, Shenyang J-31. If it does not remind you of Lightning with two engines, then I probably have some kind of visual disturbances. (clickable)

      Just in case, his photo is in metal. Specially found a perspective where two engines are not visible.



      And now everyone knows Lightning.



      Of course it is obvious that this is not a copy of Lightning, but the Chinese were definitely "inspired" by its construction.

    The stolen information will not replace technological chains, but they are different in China and the United States, which means that the planes are also different. About Buran also said so. Areal nothing but general appearance, but this is aerodynamics. It is not a mistake against her. This is an attempt by the Yusovites to show how smart they are, and the rest of the leash pick up crumbs from the table

    The Chinese in their repertoire, but it’s weak for themselves to come up with something new, all that remains is to steal from others. There are no brains, only philosophers.

    It seems that someone is not aware that the laws of aerodynamics are the same for both Americans and Chinese, as well as radio waves interact with an American plane in the same way as Chinese. Maybe that's why all planes of the same purpose look like siblings?

    I have nothing against China, but I must admit that they only make toys not bad, they will be transported with this airplane for a new amount of time, the states and we will already be doing something new, and these planes will no longer be know-how, although we must not learn without this knowledge will come!

    Perhaps they stole it ... not without it. Another question is how many of their students and post-graduate students at all US universities, how many work there + their enormous learning and hard work ... could themselves come to similar decisions on this basis. In addition, the external similarity is not the similarity of the filling.
    For example, it often seems to me that all Japanese sedans in the same class are almost the same, theft too?

    Of course, such actions will only benefit the Chinese, but they do not have complete information about the F-35. So far, only the technology of the F-135 engine has been "stolen", and this does not mean complete superiority. Before the "Penguin", the Chinese still have to grow and grow .. ... laughing
