China Begins Low-rate-initial-production of J-20 Stealth Fighter JetPosted: July 26, 2016
In its report titled “China’s new stealth fighter another step toward completion” yesterday, SCMP provides the above photo of a J-20 it believes to be a product of such production as the J-20 “was painted in gray and marked with no identifiable serial numbers — it was reported that one of the few noticeable markings on the fighter was a toned-down version of the national insignia.”
There has been speculation about such production before completion of development as that is the fourth such J-20 seen by web users. However, there has no official confirmation so far in Chinese media or the producer’s website.
