      Thx for your video. For me -it is my POV, it does not mean Iam right- I don’t see something that is really amazing until now of the J-20. The only aircraft that amazed me is of course the SU-30/35. Those who impressed me are Mig-29, EAF Typhoon, Rafale, Grippen, and the Mig-21.
      China is working hard to build up asap its WS-10 G, and WS-15. Once the WS-10 G will be ready, we will see more J-20’s agility. However, afaik the J-20 was not intend to be a super maneuverable fighter. The J-20 is like sniper as the F-22, shoot, and evade. I think the most maneuverable fighter in chinese arsenal are the J-10, and the J-11 series, including the J-15, flying shark. And maybe the FC-31, once its WS-19 will be ready. If you add WS-10G in the J-10C, or J-11 D, U will see amazed things.

    Does it mean the WS-10 G is now enough mature to oppose the F-22 ?

      The answer is no. For the underpowered, lumbering J-20 to dogfight a Russian SU-57 would be certain suicide.

      Both SU-57 and the F-22 have vectored thrust to enhance close in fighting. The J-20 doesn’t have that.

        IMO it’s worse but not so much that the J-20 is hopeless in such a fight

        Plus the J-20 is significantly better at BVR than the F-22 (IRST + larger missiles + more powerful radar + speculated to have DAS) so it should be able to oppose the F-22.

        The Russian has given up developing the Su-57 citing inability to produce a true stealth fighter. They are using what it has leant to further enhance the Su 35. The F22 is not a match of the Su 35 in terms of maneuverability and dog fights.

        So, according to the American, is the J-20 match is the F-22 or F35? They seems to be unable to make up their mind. For sure, since both F-22 and F-35 are grounded. No matter how good these craps are, they cannot fight a flying aircraft from the ground. The Chinese would not need a J-20, an unmaneuverable drone with land attack missiles is enough. No matter how big the American talks, the American never even shoot down a single Chinese aircraft, Chinese-operated or foreign-operated. But the American has been known to run from Chinese aircrafts. In 1974, the American-operated South Vietnamese warships ran away when the heard that Chinese J-7s took off from Hainan base to support their besieged minehunters. They ran away so quickly, that they left their wounded behind, even their fellow American who commanded the ships that sunk in shallow water. On the contrary of Hollywood’s ‘No one’s left behind’, the American has unchivalrous habits of leaving their comrades behind. Of course only Communist has comrades, and the American always has Hollywood.
