    Can anyone confirm whether this one has been sped up?

    The true performance is when WS-15 TVC capable J-20s perform someday in the future ... that would be the real spectacle :p:D

    Overshadowed? Yes. Does that make the J-20’s showing not impressive? I don’t think so. Next time someone calls it a giant lumbering striker and AWACS hunter just show them doing a few of those tight turns while tossing out those big vortices. Show me an Aardvark that can do those maneuvers.

    Admittedly the roll rate at high AOA appears to be in the same league as other twin engined 4th gens.

    The F-22 doesn’t seem to perform much better in the airshow videos I’ve seen. Airshow displays aren’t exactly happening at the envelope of flight that these birds would be conducting combat under though, so I'd only read so much into them.

    cobra and falling leaf maneuvers look very impressive but they're not very useful in actual ACM
