And some of those countries are well on their way. Nothing wrong with competition in my book.

As of now, yes, the US maintains a technological lead in military technology.

Only someone who is an extremely biased hyper nationalistic type would not acknowledge that.

Exciting times are ahead

Yes, but I also hope this competition is not only in Military Technology but also in Science and Space Tech as well. Indeed bro, Exciting times Ahead :)

It could give China's new WS-10B engine recently fielded on J-10C a good run for its money @dbc @F-22Raptor
lol WS-10B is not even close to the performance of F-119 or F-135
Maybe a CGI. But no more than that.
Its (US 6th gen) jet already flying according to various source and said by USAF
This engine is still at least a decade away. But it should be able to compare with WS-15.

Lol WS-15 is only low by pass engine similar to F-119 best at specific altitude and weather conditions, whereas this engine is one step ahead from WS-15/F-119

This is variable cycle engine which varies by pass ratios according to flight envelope act as a low by pass ratio turbojet for speed at high altitudes and on low to medium altitude act as a turbofan for economic cruising, WS-15 has not that capability and best in specific altitude and weather conditions
