    I like how all articles concerning China are under the category "Rogue States". :)

    Going over poems and cartoons sometimes (with the cartoons from that specific source it’s more like often) yields pretty useful information. Not sure what we’re getting out of this story with this strange physically inaccurate model...we don’t spend words seriously expecting to glean something over hobby models made in China...

    The difference is that the poems and cartoon drawings directly reflect actual developments.

    Whereas this "J-20" is obviously not a real aircraft even on a cursory glance. There's nothing wrong with speculating a bit about what a model J-20 (and a poorly made model at that) is doing in the US, but the amount of work they did to even ascertain if it could've been a real aircraft is bewildering.

    Could've been a model mockup used to train pilots for visual identification of grounded J-20s.

    Only problem is that they used the 2001/2002 model.
