    *Especially* if you’re trying to use an article to make an argument, and not just sharing information.

    I don't think LPI means guaranteed impossible to intercept, as they are still EM waves at the X-band bandwidth, (which shouldn't be around naturally or frequently) but I would love to be proved wrong.

    puffinus is pretty notorious for posting mis-information last I heard. He was pretty famous on Chinese forums for dissing the F-35.

    I could be wrong, but based on the J-20 reports so far (qustion mark if the report is accurate) it is usually used without AEW. Normally it is J-20 vs. earlier generation jets+AEW.

    puffinus basically just reiterated the 2017 POGO reports. IMO those are more from an alarmist's point of view.

    Let's be honest, maybe the current batch of J-20 will become concurrency orphans later. Feature set is always a moving target because the development is always going on for such a big complex project. I can't think China can avoid all the issues US encountered. Time will tell.

    The turnover of Factory 132 (CAC) in Chengdu exceeded for the first time 20 billion Yuan (~ 2.5 billion) in 2017.

    I was still at work when I snap post it so no chance to Google translate, but basically in summary it says J-20's role is oil tanker and AEW hunter, and have range advantage over other stealth fighters, over the vast Pacific Theater.

    With 1.3 your not going to have good feeling here ;) seriously surely 1.5 minimum, Su-57 with new ? i have see mach 1.6 and F-22 1.75 - 1.8.
    But as Su-57 again less good J-20 have a RCS largely inferior to F-22/35 in all reports confirmed it's more big " weakness " but a stealth fighter for strong point very good CR as a H-6 first no K, Tu-16 :)

    There is actually just as much freedom in everyday Chinese society as there is freedom in US society, in fact I would argue there is more of that in China, because here in US the PC/twitter police will make your life miserable if you are not careful about what you say.

    And yes, you can actually openly criticize the Chinese government, and yes, you can openly discuss politics open on the street. You ONLY get in trouble if you literally try to organize efforts to destabilize the society or join groups that wants to overthrown the government etc...

    The impression of China have no freedom you are getting is from your own "free media" who will take every single chance to bash China to make themselves look better.

    Don't believe me? Go take a trip to China, airfare is really cheap these days.
