I think you should write an article on the Diplomat for this! I am sure such a comparison would quickly get picked up by Indian media and be a massive hit
haahaa, you cannot wake up someone pretending to be asleep.
Bltizo can write up an article using the most solid scientific data and flawless logical arguments, but it will definitely fall on deaf ears and get ridiculed by the overconfident crowds from you know where.

Like I said before, Blitzo and Latenlazy shouldn't get so worked up about what people publish in the news media. A lot of this stuff is internal propaganda; it doesn't need to be true, it just needs to appeal to the target audience who need to believe in a "Bharat Stronk!" narrative.
In this case it's not so much as what people publish in the media so much as what people read in the media and then coming here to ask stupid questions.
They can publish what they want, but I don't want to spend effort as a moderator now to clear out pages of nonsense going forwards.

This is just my way of preempting that.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I’ve stopped caring. Too busy these days to play keyboard warrior. I’m never making it to the 5000 post club at this rate.

Guys... STOP with this back and forth!

We won't find a conclusive answer without any official statement and even then some won't be persuaded.

As such, any further reply into this off topic stuff will be deleted.

I've deleted multiple pages of rubbish posts.

We are likely going to see many people genuinely curious with questions about J-20 or seeking to compare J-20 with Rafale or other aircraft thanks to Indian media tabloids getting so enthused over their delivery of Rafales.

But we are better than that, so if there are further trivial "beginners" questions like that or silly comparison questions that you feel like might be coming from a place of ignorance, avoid engagement which would inevitably turn this flagship thread into a mess.

Can you stop deleting discussion on whether the ventral fins are actually aligned or whether they only seem to be quasi-aligned? And the canards aren't aligned; drag out a frontal view and the bisecting angle isn't parallel to the horizon.

This discussion has been had before in years past in this thread and others. If you or others want to spend pages of it debating over it feel free to do so in one of the other J-20 or stealth fighter threads.

There's even this thread which exists for you: World's 5th gen fighters - relative strengths and weaknesses


So no, further posts on this will be deleted or moved.
