    Not only that but if purchasing it means giving Sukhoi the funds to complete the fighter as something at least satisfactory, it would mean letting this fighter proliferate. Of course that's all assuming it needs that Chinese purchase and funding which may or may not be the case. Certainly it makes the process faster if nothing else.

    I don't think it's in China's interest to unleash another 5th gen into the world. One that they cannot control. Sure understanding it and making a purchase after others do so, or getting mlu option even further into future to learn about it and how to overcome it will be useful but I doubt plaaf will be the first customer if it ever becomes one.
