Its no problem for your aerospace company to remove folding wing mechanism and hook of j35 or another possibility is that we will go older version of fc-31 version 2 that had have no folding wing mechanism and tail hook of j35
Its pointless to reason with the guy that carries 0 logic. In the end what good will all these technological developments in the military field do for China? they are still very very far behind compared to where they should be especially with its economy almost at the same size of the US military. The PLAAF by now should have 500+ 5th generation jets and thousands of 4th generation ones.
I am not saying significant progress has not been made. It has especially in missile technology and ship building, but in the end missiles will only get you so far as shown in Ukraine today. China completely lacks a fighting culture especially compared to the US. The US has a well defined fighting culture built over hundreds of years. Go to any high school in america and you will see weight rooms, and students enrolled in 3-4 different types of sports. Most of the US military are younger well built men under 35. Today this culture is continuously being fed by none stop immigration.
China may have had a semblance of a fighting culture in the past, but that is all but destroyed with its 1 child policy. Imagine the losses every Chinese family/village/neighborhood would feel in a potential conflict where China would lose hundreds of thousands of soldiers invade taiwan or facing the US? Look at chinese youth today, they lack complete testostrone instead focus on playing video games or focused on studies. Same issues are there in the west but not nearly to the degree in China. These are things that are hard to quantify but make a very very big difference in war time/ conflict. How many Chinese youth would honestly be willing to fight a war or even be capable of fighting???
Todays US military is a well oiled machine that neither China nor Russia combined can face. I am not even including US allies such as Japan, Taiwan, NATO, Australia, UK, South Korea, etc... that would also involve. China+ Russia are at best 20 trillion USD GDP vs US+NATO+ETC at around 90 trillion USD GDP. There is simply no match.
