    That's true. To compare that we need to do survival analysis and I'm afraid that we simply don't have the time till a crash data.

    ok, lets collect the pix we have:
    J-15 T Katapult.jpg J-15T prototype at CAT - original.jpg
    this could show two different catapult-planes, with different numbers (5x and x1) - for the number 5 we could suspect for a number of 5 cat-planes … could we?

    Does not it have to be called 5xx and xx1? Then 5x1 would be possible.

    Only 2 planes have suffered destructive crashes. The other 2 were bird strikes that ended up safely landing with the aircraft recovered.

    That comes out to roughly 1 in 20 for the J-15 and your math on the F-14 seems correct.

    But one should also account for total flight hours, and that stat is not publicly available.

    I'm going to agree with Asif, it does indeed seem there are production hang-ups, with the J-20 standing somewhere around 20 airplanes? it does lead to legitimate questions....

    I would say that China's economy has suffered from the "Obama recession" as a follow on to the US economy, which was/is devastated, our military spending and readiness were in the "krapper" after 8 years of budget cuts/sequestration..... there's little doubt there has been a widespread downturn...
