the chinese must be innovative enought to have copied the basics of the engine, imputed parts from al-31 possibly, and figure most of it out on their own.

So a bit more like a copied AL-31F with american tech to solve the thrust problem but adding China's own tech into this engine...

Nice...

yeah, but that's because the Russian engines last half as long as American ones.

sure about that? The CFM56 family of engines are medium bypass civil turbofans--not exactly the type of engine you would put in a fighter.

Nah. GE, PW military turbofans are based on civilian engines such as the CFM56 core.

that is a false impression. most russian ship engines are bad, but their airplane engines with few exeption are just as reliable as western ones. their tank engines are even more reliable, versatile, and fuel efficient than western ones.
