    Did you notice the ensignia on the wings and tail of the aircraft you attached?

    Anyone else think that we should merge with the flanker thread before we have more info on this?

    Hopefully we won't have to wait long. I can't wait for the western media's reaction when they have another stealth fighter come out a year after the first.

    I just hope they don't call it China's true "fifth gen airsuperiority fighter" when it comes out...

    I think we should preemptively start a "rumour" that this upcoming plane is not in a competition with J-20 and not the "true" 5th gen fighter... I bet quite a few commentators will go around preaching that.

    Definitely. I am still not convinced that this plane will ever be built.

    Oh I am sure that the plane will be built. However I don't know how big of a disappointment it might be once it is released.

    Hey we already got the J-20, this SAC project is just icing on the cake

    Personally I'm just hoping for a larger weapons bay.

    This is like the less westernized version of T-50, on-par with the F18.

    re: Shenyang J-31 Fighter

    The low observable is interesting. Just looks real close to the USAF low observable.




    Nice fighter too...but I would not call it a true 5th gen stealth fighter. I am sure it is much better than the standard flanker...but not up to speed IMHO with true fifth gen stealth fighters. Here's the side and front compared to the F-22:

    re: Shenyang J-31 Fighter

    Really depends on if this aircraft actually exists.

    SAC's said to be working on this "silent flanker," a strike version of J-11BS, and an entirely new stealthy 5th generation aircraft developed from their rejected J-XX proposal as well. I have a feeling one or two of these projects might be the same thing. We'll know soon enough I suppose.

    Be a nice aircraft to upgrade and make a naval variant for the carriers. A few years from now, if they bring out a carrier variant to upgrade the J-15s. Depends on the perfromance and charactoeristics...but a naval variant would be an option I would think.
