Man can we gag this Surya? He is derailing every thread with his nonsense.

On Topic: Can any Chinese member tell me how many J20s are planned to be inducted in PLAAF?
Currently there are, confirmed by serial numbers, at least 18 aircraft with Russian engines distributed among Dingxin, Cangzhou, and Wuhu (relocated temporarily to Quzhou). However, we know for a fact that there are a lot more than this since they mustered 18 aircraft for the July 1st parade (15 formation flyers with three backups).

It is highly unlikely that China sent all of its J-20s away for the parade. My guess is that half of each division was picked for the parade.

As for WS-10 equipped J-20s, we've seen one in Cangzhou earlier this year. There are most likely more aircraft stationed as well.

There are two WS-10 J-20s spotted doing a flyover in North Eastern China (subject of the news report) this week. They are confirmed to be from the 1st Air Brigade in Anshan. Considering that the Wanghai Brigade in Wuhu has at least 10 aircraft as confirmed by satellite image. It is safe to assume that there are 10 in Anshan as well.

No one knows for sure exactly how many PLAAF plans on inducting but based on estimates from the CAC facility, at least 24 more will be inducted this year. I think China is aiming for around 200-300 of these birds. The real question is will they mass produce the WS-10 variant or wait for the target engine.

The Global Times video in the opening post has nothing to do with the ridiculous headline.
Its about commisions and pilot training.
Theres was no "deployment" related to "keep F-16 jets at bay".
J20 does by large consens does not even have that role.

Right. China is not afraid of the F-16 and has no reason to deploy the J-20 too close to Taiwan, let Taiwan collect information on the J-20's RCS, and then pass the data on to the US. J-11 is more than enough to deter Taiwan. Of course, headlines like this deceive many readers and create pointless arguments.

So now you are again quoting DG ISPR words by trying to twist it in your favor. As i said many times if it gives you mental satisfaction or false pride by expressing things like 2 pilots, F-16s not used and DG ISPR said this and that, then be happy as presenting arguments or proofs to you guys is always useless. But again by your definition of events, reality will not change. Truth is only one and it cant change as PAF stance from start that PAF shot down two Jets one MKI and other Bison. But lies always have many version as IAF and Indian experts like you change your statements many a times, whatelse can prove you wrong when you present a new theory everytime you shown up.
So making indian public happy is not our concern, its your media is doing just fine in this manner to make your public happy. But the concerned parties like IAF, IA and Indian govt. got their lessons and they well aware about what had happened on Feb 27, 2019. 8-)
Indians destroyed India , no need for Pakistan or China to destroy it lmao

Why its mention 4 generation aircraft I though it was 5th generation ?
the news agency in the linked video mistakenly called J-20 a 4th generation Fighter???
China uses a different designation system. 4th generation fighters like the F-15 and Su-27 are considered 3rd gen in China and 5th gen considered 4th gen. This is because China merged the 2nd and 3rd generations into a single generation. Both F-4 and MIG-21s are considered 2nd gen in China but are third and 2nd gen, respectively, under US designation.

Tejas is a plane for future.
:rofl:Quit smoking hashish via your anals. In what world a plane with development span of 3 decades is a plane of future. In all reality Tejas is still in development and a total failure. After spending billions on this plane you will be merely inducting 2-3 squadron at max unable to recover even quarter of its development costs. You presented that jet to malaysians sirlankans bangladesh and many more yet no one even bothered to evaluate that jet. The reasons are obvious that a country which cant even maintain Russian jets sourced from single country yet claim to help maintain a jet sourced from at least 10 different sources. So please get a life Sooraya.

Please cut some slack for this cutey wutie Surya

I am well known to throw pukes and idiots to join the used toilet tissues and discarded condoms in ignore bin for them to commune with the cockroaches and flora fauna there and learn some wisdom from their betters.:enjoy::enjoy::enjoy:

But cutie wutie Surya not thrown there as I find him so cute.


What I told Surya :D :D:D

:pleasantry::pleasantry::pleasantry:

Your being so cute and adorable is not a criteria for you to judge if others are cute or not.
That will require intelligence and a feel for good taste but you are so sadly lacking in those attributes , and more.

Best you just remain contented to be cute and adorable to me

Tejas is so great that Indians literally had to use politics muscles to prevent Sri Lanka from getting JF-17s.

Yes, in year 2050 they make 4th Gen fully operational. Fourth Gen have bright future. Best of luck

Can you provide us official specification of the engine?
WS-10 was supposed to have 136 KN of thrust per initial design but the batch they used on the J-11B had to dial it back to 126 KN. However, in 2016 a news article indicates that newer variants (WS-10B?) resolved the problem and increased maximum thrust by 14% (I could’ve be wrong about the specific percentage) so it is back in the 130KN to 140KN range. This is consistent with rumors that WS-10B is between F-110 GE-129 and GE-132 in terms of power.

An article claims that engine lifespan is 1500 hours, which is a fraction of Western engines but superior to baseline AL-31 China imported in the late 90s.

Sirilanka will have to evaluate a replacement considering they are now working with most obsolete planes in the entire region. Soon they will push through Indian pressure and start inducting newer jets. One thing is for sure that no one is buying that flying samosa.

Sri Lanka planners are cautious but are not be that politically stupid.

The minute they accepts LCA, they can be potentially blackmailed and sanctioned by India.

More like the minute the accept the LCA, they don't know if their planes will get delivered within the decade.
