    SAC FC-31 Stealth Fighter: News & Discussions

    How could you draw that conclusion? US Navy will be using both F/A-18 and F-35 at the same time for at least two decades.

    SAC FC-31 Stealth Fighter: News & Discussions

    Firstly, what you quoted was from South China Morning Post which is a Hongkong media and is not a credible source for military news at all. The same or similar reports can not be found in any mainland China based media. So the authenticity is in doubt. Secondly, Lt Gen Zhang Honghe is from the...

    Type 00X/003 (former Type 002) Aircraft Carrier News & Discussions

    Some observations: 1. The elevator should be wide enough to handle two J-15's a time, not to mention the smaller J-35. 2. The island is almost 20m shorter than Shangdong's or 30m shorter than Liaoning's.

    Type 054A FFG News & Discussions

    “I matched them according to their aircraft elevator's ..." That made my day! :rofl: I don't know if his ignorance caused his stupidity or it's the stupidity that resulted in the ignorance. It's just amusing anyway.

    Shenyang J-15 aircraft carrier-based aircraft

    J-15 or J-15B cannot be compared to Tejas, which is in a league of its own, and almost as good as F-22, in terms of combat radius.

    The key is that the one on the right is expected to have a new radar installed on its top, in addition to the engine exhaust. The radar may be something like the one on top of a Z-19. That also means the new engines have enough power to support it. Looks like they are going to Mars with the...

    Chinese Air Force (PLAAF) News & Discussions

    IMHO the chance to see the unveiling or even maiden flight of some new aircraft ( that include even J-35, H-20) is high. There are July 1st, Oct 1st, August 1st, Apr 23rd, Nov 11th every year, but the 100th Anniversary of CCP is just truly different. It's BIG! It's historic! Only the 100th...

    SAC FC-31 Stealth Fighter: News & Discussions

    IMHO the public display of this mockup means either the project is terminated or it will change a lot before joining PLA and it's probably almost ready for its maiden flight.

    Type 00X/003 (former Type 002) Aircraft Carrier News & Discussions

    According to 瀚海狼山, the decision to get rid of the 3rd elevator on Type 003 was to make it combat ready ASAP because the crew would be familiar with the deck operations currently conducted on Liaoning and Shandong.
