Can anyone please explain what's this Tweet is all about?


... maybe I'm wrong in the translation - as per "AVIC First Aircraft Design and Research Institute posted: 'It's close to submission date, we are ready" - why is a "submission date" a hint for either the H-20 or J-35? IMO a "unveiling date" would be much more interesting.


"It's close to submission date, We are ready." is just a literal translation word by word from Chinese to English. Since Shenyang Aircraft Corporation is under AVIC First Aircraft Research Institute.

The Metaphor meaning behind it more like first prototype of H-20 or J-35 will made it's maiden flight soon. But how "soon" is considered soon.. We still don't know.:what:


P.S Also, "It's close to submission time for the exam paper or hand in the exam" also meaning face the truth and see what you got.

When i posted these two screenshots (see the links below), it was a big hint already. Look at the progress of 003 and now this metaphor.


Ofcourse some bradwurst thought the H-20 screencap was just a cg and nothing more.

Me again ... but WHO posted this? Is is again an individual blogger or poster at Weibo? Is it something like an official announcement?

Yes, I would like to believe in this rumour as indeed the "smoke is getting thicker" and where is smoke there must be a fire ... but we have been fooled too often before.

Anyone with an idea?!!



With similar reports from SAC concerning similar task forces, groups preparing structural tests and/or flight testing, what do you think what are the chances that we will see the unveiling, maybe even maiden flight of such a project (new J-10, J-20 twin seater, a new UAV, J-15T, J-35, ...) at or around 1st July?
By "aircraft" they could mean anything, including small UAVs, not necessarily something as high-end as a new fighter. I wouldn't hold my breath for anything, to be honest, since none of the previous big-ticket items were unveiled after such announcements and social media fanfare.

We know for a fact that it can’t be JF-17 block III since it is mentioned in the same article and has already flown. Anything else is up for grabs. The most disappointing case would be GJ-1 drones modified for Type-076 operations.
