PLA: J-20 Already World Leader, Rival to Any Other Stealth FighterPosted: November 14, 2016
PLA website says in its report this morning that J-20 has integrated the designs of various fighter jets including the shape of F-22’s nose, F-35’s electro-optical Distributed Aperture System, Russian T-50’s all-moving vertical stabilizer, etc. It is installed with active phased array radar and electronic warfare and electro-optical systems that very few countries in the world are able to make.
It is of excellent stealthy design and equipped with advanced navigation electronics and weapon systems strong enough to contend with any stealth fighter jets in the area around China.
It can be a stealth reconnaissance aircraft. Its powerful information system enables it to be the command fighter jet of a fleet of non-stealth fighter jets like an AEW&C aircraft. It can also lead a fleet of drones to fight in the style of a swarm of bees.
As J-20 is the first stealth fighter to be deployed in Chinese air force. Chinese military will study new tactics and combat methods to integrate it with other advanced air battle equipment and technology and explore through training the way to give play to the optimal combat capabilities of all the equipment and technology combined. Chinese military will gradually develop a theory of combat centered on J-20 that will make J-20 the scariest weapon to enemy from abroad.
