    Chinese Flanker Family: J-11, J-16 ... Su-27SK/UBK, Su-30MKK

    Still can't face the challenge and keep dragging on with replies? I believe the words from US and PLA military personnel more than yours, that's all. The PLA major general (2 stars) said China military manufacturing is just like their domestic business manufacturing mindset, subject to change...

    Chinese Flanker Family: J-11, J-16 ... Su-27SK/UBK, Su-30MKK

    Why are you replying when everyone is waiting for actual result? It's just you afraid to wait for the actual J-15B/T. Now keep quiet, don't reply and wait for the actual j-15 that will take off from Type 003. If J-15B/T for Type 003 have slower top speed of just Mach 2 or slower, we expect your...

    Shenyang J-15 aircraft carrier-based aircraft

    Type 003 EMALS allow heavier payload to be carried and if J-15B/T proven successful, it is likely to have twin seat air to ground variant J-15 for offensive operations.

    US pilots have them too attached to lap. It is current trend nowadays since decade ago, convenient and easy with everything in the tablet replacing manual notes.

    Chinese Flanker Family: J-11, J-16 ... Su-27SK/UBK, Su-30MKK

    They just have to change the wings, canard swept angles and it would affect the aerodynamic, cruising & top speed. J-11B, J-16, J-15, Su-27SK, Su-33, Su-35, Su-30 various variants have different aerodynamic because of wings swept angles. Everyone here is waiting for J-15 variant for Type003...

    Chengdu J-10 Multirole Fighter Air Craft News & Discussions

    J-20 is the current twin engine stealth fighter? Unmanmed loyal wingman is UCAV can't modify. Better they build a new aircraft Converting j-10D into stealth aircraft requires total redesign, not feasible. Better they start another new fighter programme.

    Chengdu J-10 Multirole Fighter Air Craft News & Discussions

    If China has plan for single engine stealth fighter, it will be totally new fighter built from scratch bearing different number designation. If there's J-10D, it won't be stealth version but more of enlarged version to carry more missiles/bombs with provision for CFT. More of Gripen NG or...

    Chengdu J-20 5th Generation Aircraft News & Discussions

    This is good news, based on the turn radius, the large J-20 maneuverability is considered good although not as nimble as the medium fighters with known maneuverability. It could still get into limited dogfight. It is added advantage in unexpected situation. Despite having off boresight highly...

    Chengdu J-20 5th Generation Aircraft News & Discussions

    Great info, thanks for the detailed explanation especially on how the F/A-18E/F air brake mechanism works and how the B-2 yaw. The theory on removing the fins for yaw seems really complicated, looking forward to see the real thing, I'll wait for new agile fighter without tail fins to see how it...

    Chengdu J-20 5th Generation Aircraft News & Discussions

    Trace back old post if you haven't removed @gambit post stating F-22 vs J-20 comparison where he mentioned the F-22 superior in terms of flight envelope and avionics. That was when he stopped his post after you condemned him while I told him to stay. Since you're debating as user with me and...

    Weren't you trying to ban him the last time he posted just because you disagreed? The way you suppresed him was just like how you tried to get me banned. I told him to stay just like how I told SU-33KUB that was picked on by you too over personal matter. I was gambit's rival but I enjoy debating...

    Chinese Flanker Family: J-11, J-16 ... Su-27SK/UBK, Su-30MKK

    @gambit Please assist to explain to Deino the reasons of different top speed for the different flanker variants in China inventory. I have explained to him based on aviation engineering books and answers from the US Navy fighter pilots, my country fighter pilots that I have met. Yet he kept...

    Greetings, May I know what is the warning for when I only asked for top speed of all flankers variants bought and built domestically by China in all China flankers variants thread? Since deino condemned almost every point I posted based on military books that I've read and US aircraft carrier...

    Chengdu J-20 5th Generation Aircraft News & Discussions

    Great, my old foe you're back. The A-12 and B-2 indeed have really poor maneuverability especially the yaw without the fin stabilizers. Since you're the expert, care to clarify since there's no maneuverable aircraft without fin stabilizer in active service so far. Also, I need you to explain the...

    Countries that buy weapons from Russia or China mostly are those that don't buy from US & NATO. Also numbers of them have rivals that are placed under threat list of possible attackers usually richer buying arms from US & NATO having larger air forces. Just look at Syria vs Turkey air force...

    Chengdu J-10 Multirole Fighter Air Craft News & Discussions

    The maximum effective range is only achievable if the launcher aircraft is flying at high altitude and at speed without affected by ECM. In rear engagement against fleeing aircraft at high speed, the effective range would greatly reduced to less than 15Nm. This is why in modern BVR engagement...

    This man said J-11D prototype undergone testing superior than Su-35. Deino kept saying there won't be J-11D so who is right? Also noticed the specifications of few flankers variants in Wikipedia kept changing the top speed therefore need clarification from those know how here: Su-27SK Max...

    In BVR, both sides chance of winning at 50:50. The F-16V RCS isn't that high neither yet it is fitted with proven advanced AESA radar coupled with advanced proven avionics especially early warning system. China avionics could be either close, similar or better, won't know until it sees combat...
