Now I have no idea if this is a legitimate fighter aircraft or if it's just some wonderful propaganda getting "leaked" out, but it sure looks like a Raptor-wanna-be. So what do you think? Real aircraft or a hunk of metal getting pushed around made to look like it's an airworthy frame?

"Robert Gates, the US defence secretary, recently said China would be able to produce a combat jet by 2020, but if the video is genuine, it would suggest that it may be able to do so a decade or more sooner."

It seems stealth tech is the least of our worries. They're building time machines.

I just don't understand how this is news. We've had video of it taxiing for 6 months now, and we've already seen it fly. Is the Telegraph just mentally slow?

Here's a video of it taking off and flying on youtube.


Where's my freaking newspaper article?

Quoting tripleboom (Thread starter):

Even the Chinese admit that an operation fighter is still at least 6-7 years away. The J-20 now is more of a technology demonstrator like the F-22 which puts the Chinese around 20 years behind the US. Even considering that they will likely have far fewer budget and bureaucratic roadblocks, they are still somewhere behind American technology.

Of course America seems loathe to fund anything these days, so hopefully the J-20 will scare the crap out of enough politicians to light a fire under the government's ass when it comes to development and defense spending.

Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

lol, no, the Telegraph cleary posts '3:27PM GMT 06 Jan 2011' as the posted date. Tripleboom is just 6 months late to the party. Think he knows about the Sukhoi T-50?
