    It is said Shenyang has a project of new generation fighter named "silent flanker" which is developed from Flanker.

    Did you notice the ensignia on the wings and tail of the aircraft you attached?

    Anyone else think that we should merge with the flanker thread before we have more info on this?

    It's what a low vis PLAAF roundel will look like :p

    Hopefully we won't have to wait long. I can't wait for the western media's reaction when they have another stealth fighter come out a year after the first.

    I just hope they don't call it China's true "fifth gen airsuperiority fighter" when it comes out...

    I think we should preemptively start a "rumour" that this upcoming plane is not in a competition with J-20 and not the "true" 5th gen fighter... I bet quite a few commentators will go around preaching that.

    Definitely. I am still not convinced that this plane will ever be built.

    Oh I am sure that the plane will be built. However I don't know how big of a disappointment it might be once it is released.

    Hey we already got the J-20, this SAC project is just icing on the cake :D

    Personally I'm just hoping for a larger weapons bay.
