What's The Scoop On That New Chinese Fighter?

Sun Aug 02, 2009 2:09 am

Is it the J-10 or F-10? I forget, but in any event, how capable are these jets supposed to be? My initial guess without specific knowledge would be that it's the standard deal of possibly a bit better than our F-16C and F-15C in certain situations but no match for a Raptor.

Chinese designation is J-10, sometimes 'translated' to F-10.

Ahhh, that makes. I was always confused about why they would have two such similar designs.

I've read several different sources that have indicated the J-10 is comparable to the F-16. The below link is a good source of information on the plane. Although it was intended to be a completely indigenous project, the Chinese could only pull it off with help from the Israelis and the Russians.

Aren't they also developing a locally built version of the Su-27/33? (Called the J-11?)

Correct. More Chinese avionics and systems, plus an increase in the use of composites and improvements in the radar cross section. Also being fitted with locally designed weapons over Russian ones.

Yeah, it's pretty bad PR when fighter jets get returned for a refund.  Silly
