China’s J-20 100 Times More Powerful with Homegrown EOTS SystemPosted: April 5, 2016
My post “China Taxi Test of Second Mass-produced J-20 Stealth Fighter Jet” on January 17 reveals the beginning of series production of China’s stealth fighter jet J-20.
The report on mil.eastday.com yesterday says that more than a dozen J-20s have so far been produced.
Readers are certainly very much interested in how powerful J-20 is compared with US F-22 as J-20 has been developed to grab air supremacy from F-22.
My post “China’s J-20 Better in Detecting Stealth Plane, Longer Range than F-22” on January 29 tells readers that J-20 is better than F-22 in range and heavier load to carry air-to-ground and anti-ship missiles.
However, what is most important as revealed in the post is its superiority to F-22 in its EOTS system, which F-22 cannot have due to its limited space.
Mil.eastday.com reveals in its article yesterday that J-20 is equipped with Chinese homegrown EOTS-86 to enable it to detect B-2 and F-22 respectively within 150 and 120 km much better than radar in any existing stealth fighter jets.
