This is in the title.
歼-20格斗训练
I'm reaching the limits of my Chinese -- does "格斗" specifically refer to "one type training against the same type" in this context?

Because I thought it merely meant simply combat training.

Literally means fisticuffs or fighting of some form or another. But used for the act of any kind of direct struggle or confrontation these days.

格斗means dogfight in this context.
Sorry, you misunderstand me -- I'm asking what in that title states that it their aerial dogfights/combat training etc was against "one another"?

Emphasis on the "one another" aka "J-20 vs J-20" part.


For the record, I'm sure that J-20s have conducted combat training and ACT against J-20s already by now. It's just that I'm wondering where in the title or the post does yankee state it?

According to Yankee, the aircraft taking part in aerial combat are from the Wang Hai Brigade in Wuhu. I am not aware of other types stationed there.

Holy Jesus, look at this fucking edit made literally just now. Just when you think Indian Media couldn't have stooped lower, it makes the claim where 'Global Times referred to J-20 as a 4th gen fighter', hence it has officially been 'downgraded' to a 4th fighter.
In case anyone doesn't know, China used to have its own fighter generation classification based on eras where J-20 is placed in the fourth generation category based on the era/series when it is produced, only very recently was a change(that I'm not even sure is official) made to use the Western classification, most/many people in China still uses the old classification.

This is the problem with Indian and Western Media, preying on ignorance.
