Looks like an A4 Skyhawk and a Su-25 had a baby together…

The curse of modern fighter jet designs for the last +60years, nearly all airframe design elements used anywhere are always newly mixed together w/ every new plane. A modern plane is more defined by avionics radar-system electronic-warfare equipment engines and the amount of composits are used what defines how stealthy a plane maybe will be and of course its flight performance. I’m getting really tired of assholes claiming just why a plane has visual similarities w/ another it’s surly a rip-off and they stole it, that’s total rubbish and aviation design is much complicated than that.

So you mean everyone copies older models but there are more important things, right?

Volker

What is there to misunderstand by the ‘Term’ design elements? like wingshape, wingprofile, strakes, stabilizers, canards, one or two engines, placement of air-intakes ect. ect. ect.

occupybacon

So you don’t believe in copyes, yes?

occupybacon

Oy gevalt…

Zionism = EVIL

It is basically a third generation stop gap fighter when China was in the middle of technology transition. The J-10 was the next step and so on.

Chinese Air Force are in the top 3 now.
Both in numbers and quality.

SevenMoons

Yes. But China military is still defense oriented. It does not intend to be as aggressive as the US military is. It does not want to be the world police.

Assad must stay

looks like a capable aircraft i am wondering if china is planning to use this against india

SevenMoons

Possible. But definitely not the first wave. Pay attention that this is a fighter-bomber combo. They can go in after Indian radar, air defense and some air strips are neutralized.
