also Xifei (Xian Aircraft Corp) engineers were asking them to transport this thing from Shenfei (shenyang) to Yanliang.More information about this fighter, from the official website of the company who transported the fighter:
From their website, there are some interesting information about the fighter:
The fighter has a wing span of 11.5 meter, comparing to F-35's 10.7 meter, MiG-29's 11.4 meter or Hongdu's L-15's 9.5 meter.
The official name for the figther should be called as some sort of eagles.
It is confirmed the fighter is transported from Shengyang's SAC to Yanliang's national insistute of structral strength to conduct static stress test.
the photos and video are around the same time, people has been uploading it gradually onto the internet.It's been four weeks and its still driving around. I know bands that have gone on shorter tours than that
there is a similar discussion somewhere elseI haven't read much of this thread but I was pondering the marketing capabilities of Shenyang to export these birds. It would make sense that these babies have to have an equal/comparable Rcs to the f-35 with similar payload. But then my question is who is the clientelle?
Latin American, Middle East, and some part of rich Africa, there is a lot of potential actually. If they can prove this plane have similar performance to F-35 while 1/3 of the cost.I haven't read much of this thread but I was pondering the marketing capabilities of Shenyang to export these birds.

KF-X is still in the designing stage, I won't put any price on that. And remember when F-35 was suppose to cost 50 million dollars when it was announced? Try 150-200 million nowbtw, the KF-X is slated to be at the same size and class with pretty much the same capabilities, at 50 mil a pop
if SAC manages to launch this bird earlier, i'd hate to be the Koreans
but they got an excellent marketing
this PR move by SAC is pretty bold, and they are riding the high wind of J-20
i guess the mum by international aerospace sites is telling, that any coverage would only be helping SAC's exposures
and companies usually have to pay top dollars for it
