J-20 in Service Dec. 12, with Better Radar, Not Less Stealth than F-22Posted: December 20, 2016
China’s official military column mil.huanqiu.com says that according to Taiwan’s ettoday.net, China’s J-20 stealth fighter jet was commissioned on December 12 and has now been deployed in Dingxin Test and Training Center, Gansu Province.
As China keeps information of its J-20 strictly confidential, mil.huanqiu,com is used to reveal some secret information by quoting outside media’s reports.
According to ettoday.net, J-20 is more advanced than F-22 and F-35 as its AESA radar has more than 2,000 T/R modules while F-22’s has a little less than 2,000 and F-35’s, less than 1,600.
J-20’s front RCS, according to ettoday.net, is 0.1 square meter only a little larger than F-22’s 0.065, but with stronger radar, it is not inferior to F-22 in terms of invisibility.
Ettoday.net says that in air combat drill, J-20 beat third-generation fighter jets such as J-10, J-11 and Su-30 with the score of 10 to 0.
