My apologies, I meant the green one instead of the yellow one.


No problem ... but I don't think so

there is an airforce version? i though this jet was for navy?
But PLAAF has already has J-20, aren't they?

Edit : Or maybe they make land based version to replace JH-7? The problem is what kind of role that the J-35 will take? Multi role? A to A role? or strike role?

J-35 is new design compared with J-20. Designed for navy.

In next generation fighter, maneuverability has lower priority than before, so
  1. Lower G, maybe 7 is enough.
  2. Higher max take off weight/empty weight ratio.
  3. Smaller airframe, suitable for aircraft carrier
  4. Navy need easier maintenance on carrier
  5. Antirust
  6. New airframe technology, more composite material and aluminum lithium alloy
  7. New technology, less parts, all-in-one body

Also, China dislike monopoly, competition is good for long run.

it looks more of a multirole kind of jet ....... plus china has refined it so much i think it will be a very potent air to air fighter!

According to this. China will announce naval 5th generation fighter in the coming year.

"Moreover, Sun Cong, chief designer of the FC-31 (aka J-31), deployed on carriers—an F-35 lookalike—told Global Times that “people will … see good news on the next-generation aircraft carrier-based fighter jet” in the coming year."

If the J-35 doesn't have sidebay, it will not be multi-role fighter. China missiles are wider and less compact compared to US counterpart that builds more smaller diameter or foldable fins missiles & bombs to squeeze into the F-22 and F-35 smaller internal bays. The F-22 is solely air to air while F-35 is mainly for air to air or air to ground, only either 1. US won't risk losing stealth by allowing F-35 to carry external payload during actual war.

Come on ... the F-35 also has no side-bays but is surely more a multirole type than any other current fighter. As such it may limit its weapons load but it in no way excludes it from being multirole.

I'm not liking the new cockpit design. There is not enough visibility for the pilot in the rear aspect.

It is a bubble canopy that flares out to the sides. The only area blocked is directly behind the pilot's head. The view is fine unless the pilot likes cranking his neck backwards 180 degrees like an owl to look directly behind him.

The F-35 on full internal payload wasn't considered multi-role fighter that US military demonstration showed more F-35s required to carry out air strikes with those on air to ground role carrying only air to ground payload internally while those flying escort carry all AMRAAM internally. US has no problem outnumbering its enemies therefore they are fine with this. After introduction of compact foldable fins AIM-120C7, an F-35 could carry 6x AIM-120C7 in center internal bay like F-22. The J-20A large internal bay can't carry more than 4x PL-15, expect the same with J-35 until China could build compact missiles & bombs

If J-35 fitted with rear camera, then the pilot doesn't have to tilt head

not important any more, no need at all, actually.

F-35 use the same design, the helmet provide 360° view. Can see though the frame.

naked eye vision is not important now, people with eyeglass can fly now.
