      It’s unfortunate you cannot post anymore in the J-20 thread ... :(

      Asoka long time no see. Haven't heard from you for a while. Anyway, I hope that J-10 3D TVC was a good Christmas present ...

        As a high bypass turbofan engine, can you speculate its true performance? BTW, the 140-160KN sounds by far too low, since its core derives from the WS-10, but it cannot almost have the same thrust with a low bypass turbofan engine like the WS-10. I think its true performance should be over 200KN, quite close to the Soviet D-18T.

        I think it is possible that China will use 6 WS-20 engines to power the An-225.

        I doubt. WS-20 has no after burner.
        C-17 Powerplant: 4 × Pratt & Whitney F117-PW-100 turbofan engines, 40,440 lbf (179.9 kN) thrust each

      Ok, I do fully believe you now. You have been tagged by Deino as a fanatic who spreads the misinformation, but you now need to be absolutely exonerated.

      Yes, the J-20 is indeed using the WS-15, and your 210KN estimation is probably correct based on the latest WS-15 model.

      IMO, WS-15-1 = 180KN WS-15-2 = 210KN

        until then china will have to play defense not offense, forget about lank attack. history has shown, its a very costly business.

        The OBOR business will inadvertently change China's military stance. Since now you lead the globalization, the US has gradually withdrawn from it, then you have to increase your military presence around the global. This is intrinsic. Sometimes, this does not even follow China's own wish, since China has been pushed in the front by the world to lead the new era of the globalization.

        If China uses its power and military wisely, then it won't get exhausted prematurely like the US.

      I'm confused as to why you believe thrust vectoring is so imperative for the J-20? There are many shortcomings associated with TVC ... just look at the Su-30MKI

        Asoka
        I don't have time to answer your question, in a proper way. A good friend of mine is in town for a visit. We are spending much time hiking and cycling together. May be you can tell me what are the many short comings of using TVC, and we can start from there.

      @Asoka, do you still believe in your WS-15 theory even after the WS-10X revelation? Bc it seems you aren't posting very often anymore ... quite unfortunate

        Don't forget F-22 and F-35 both have very powerful engine, and FC-31 got RD-33.

        That's too harsh ... the FC-31 will get the WS-13. But those RD-33 are very smoky tho

        "That's too harsh ... " I don't think so. This WS-13 is a weak engine. It will not do. dry thrust: 51.2 kn; max thrust: 86.37 kn

        Yes, I married late at age 44, and I am already 48. Most of my friend's kids are graduating from high school. And my daughter haven't even enter pre-school yet. "Yes indeed I was lucky a bit celebrating my "victory" (LOL), " Enjoy your victory celebration, while Asoka is preoccupied with his new born son. I already saw a big flaw with the the WS-10B installed on the J-20 for the first time, argument.

      Why do your flags show you're from Canada originally because you said you're from China originally. Confused.

        The Avatar looks like an interesting thread. Don't worry about disclosing military secrets too much. The emphasis of China's strategy has shifted into Detering wars from happening. So it must show some muscle to the US neocons. IMO.

      So, America actually looks up to China (AoW, Jin Yong, etc.) They belittle her publicly b/c of their small-sized ego!

      (BTW, I'm one of those ppl who think a German mod reading forum posts, never b4 seen a J-20 in real life, knows better than the engineers and military officials in the divisions that deployed them, is a sort of farcical joke worthy of ROTFLOL!)

      (BTW, for anyone familiar with Jin Yong's works here's the proof STAR WARS came from them: Name the only story in the world where a boy (Anakin) marries someone older (Padme) in a forbidden love relationship, and by the time they swore hand in marriage before the altar, Anakin had already lost his arm? Do I hear The Return of the Condor Heroes?)

      The only exception is Darth Vader suit, which is an exact clone of a Japanese Shogun warlord armor made more high-tech. Point is Americans always think they're superior to Chinese, but reality is opposite. So, plz refrain from posting PLA military secrets in the CD sub-forum to gratify a false sense of racial inferiority which never existed in the first place!
