China’s stealth fighter goes into mass production after thrust upgrade
  • The J-20B has overcome agility problems to finally be considered a fully fledged fifth-generation fighter, military source says
  • Aircraft still will be fitted with Russian engine but ‘Chinese version could be ready in a year or two’

Actual content: Minnie Chan got a hold of a rumor that the Chinese inaugurated a J-20B with TVC but WS-10 / AL-31F level engines. It's not strictly impossible; the J-20 platform would be much improved by TVC, but there's no other substantiation.

Well if the rumour is true and J-20 is using some TVC engine, it would be the WS-10 TVC as demonstrated by J-10 years ago. So it isn't a Russian engine which makes the article incorrect. Unless some are fitted with TVC WS-10 and some are fitted with AL-31. I thought all current J-20s are using WS-10 and have been for some time now? Or have I confused it with the J-10.

Nothing really to discuss. It comes down to "are we getting any more corroboration of this rumor"? It is extremely optimistic for China that they slapped on the TVC, but there's no substantiation, we haven't heard any rumors from any sources about actual TVC development on the J-20B other than the sketches we got after the J-10C TVC was tested.

Ah, great, here we go. We're going to spend the next 10 pages discussing Minnie Chan trash.

May I ask why you "disliked" my comment with :mad: while at the same time add " We're going to spend the next 10 pages discussing Minnie Chan trash"? Since it is nothing but trash!

The emoji my reaction any time Minnie Chan's name gets brought up. The "10 pages" thing was my reaction to the "if Minnie Chan's garbage is true then..." conversation that was starting between @Inst and @ougoah.

This forum's emoji system is quite limited and its meaning comes across ambiguously. For instance, I use the laugh emoji in different cases to laugh with and laugh at the poster. In this case, you could say I'm angry with you that Minnie Chan stuff got posted.
Need a new rule in forum. Anyone that posts Minnie chan, David axe, Dave Majumdar etcs. Will automatically get a 1 week vacation.

Thanks for your kind reply and explanation ... I was only surprised and misread as an agreement with her post!
