Remark Photographer
2001 (cn 0001) China first fourth generation jet fighter J-20, the frame doesn't look like F-22,T-50 and any other fighters. Completely new designed aerodynamic configuration and avionics system. China is the second country which has 2 types 4th generation jet fighters after the US.

If you count the SU 47 berkut Russia is number 2 and China is number 3 considering FYI stealth tech with upgraded integration avionics is 5 th generation.

To visitor from Sweden: China has its own generation count. According to it Raptor, Penguin and PAK-FA are 4th generation fighters. Su-27, F-15, MiG-29, F-16, etc are 3rd gen fighters.

Very nice photo, thanks for that. But one note for you: you probably forgot that russian 1st stealth fighter was MiG-1.44 (MFI) development of which started even in 1980's. Now Russia has a second 5th gen. fighter - Sukhoi T-50. And by the way: if to compare the appearances of the MiG-1.44 and J-20 you'll find many similarities. Yes, this one doesn't look like F-22 or T-50 but it look like a forgotten MiG-1.44 :) So China is the only 3rd county who "made" 2 types of the "5th gen fighters", after USA, after Russia.
Best regards !

I always had the impression, that forward canards greatly limit the "stealthiness" of an a/c. Plus here they are located very close to the CG, which means they must either have large deflection angles (-> low stealth) or its agility is limited quite badly. Anyway, looks more like a low penetration fighter-bomber to me...

A visitor from Sweden posted Wed March 20, 2013:
Fifth generation I assume you mean? I think this generation thing is something not to be taken too seriously since the definition pretty much depends on who you ask. Great picture never the less, really shows the rather unique configuration. To me it looks like they've taken some parts from F35, some T50 and added some to the mix :)

Cool but still prefer to two US 5th Gen fighters..
