U.S. media concern “China’s second stealth fighter
Global Times special correspondent Zhang also relaxation] a lot of foreign military experts believe that China’s network of military blogs and forums filled with too many rumors, speculation and edited pictures, they are often skeptical about this information. However, more recently, in transit, “Shen fly Five Dynasties machine” (Chinese netizens called “dumplings machine”) video on the Internet, caused by the large number of foreign research institutions “crowd”. The foreign analysts believe that the machine is probably the “illegitimate child” of the aviation industry is still in the competitive Chinese Air Force’s fifth generation fighter project, and may become a Navy aircraft carrier, but the aircraft may have limited export potential.
China’s second stealth fighter Project?
United States, “Defense News” website reported that, in late June, a few paragraphs on the Internet video show that a body wrapped in camouflage canvas fighter, appeared in from the Shenyang Aircraft Corporation to the highway located in Xi’an the Yanliang the test flight hospital. This aircraft is regarded as China’s second stealth fighter — F -21 “snow osprey. “China’s military modernization,” the author of the book, and later into the “International Assessment and Strategy Center,” said Richard Fisher, an international UAV innovation contest held in Beijing in September 2011, on display with them by the college students, and Shenyang Aircraft Corporation developed a shape similar to the aircraft model. The model shows that this is a double stealth fighter, equipped with an internal bomb bay, and an active phased array radar.
reported that the Chinese public in January 2011, the first stealth fighter, which is developed by the Chengdu Aircraft Company F -20. Cheng Fei Fei Shen is a competitor of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force and Navy, the fifth-generation fighter project. With the disclosure of F -20, fly into seem to get the victory of this competition, however, the F-21 an increase in uncertainty. The article quoted the words of the Project 2049 Institute Senior Fellow Roger Cliff: “F -21 is still possible and F -20 competitive fifth-generation fighter aircraft of the PLA’s role … People’s Liberation Army Air Force, perhaps two aircraft will buy.”
do aircraft carrier “illegitimate”
Cliff said, “There are indications that a new type of Shenyang fighter may not be the People’s Liberation Army to support the project, development is self-financing by the Aviation Industry Group, and then hope that the People’s Liberation Army later to buy this aircraft. “Cliff F -21 may also be a carrier-based aircraft. The report said that the Shenfei previously developed for China’s aircraft carrier project F-15 “Flying Shark” fighter, and the People’s Liberation Army Navy needs more advanced enough to penetrate enemy air defense network of fighter. Have been concerned about China’s military programs expert Richard Fisher’s point of view is similar. “Space defense” website published an article in the middle of last month, said in an interview, Fisher said, “According to the reports of the Chinese side, the F-60 is likely to be a ‘private’ project, hoping to sell to the People’s Liberation Army … Prior to this happens many times, for example the Hongdu the K-8 trainer aircraft. “Fisher said, Image analysis showed that the new jet is likely a smaller machine of the Five Dynasties, Shen Fei, in order to sell to the People’s Liberation Army as a Chengdu J -20 a low-cost partner. “It is only slightly longer than the F-35 that has two engines, but obviously used stealth shape, so will a Five Dynasties machine,” Fisher said, “If this is an actual existence of the project, it may become a carrier-based development, its size and twin configuration is ideal for use in the Chinese aircraft carrier. “
export prospects have been questioned
Defence News, “the article said, unconfirmed rumors that the F -21 will be the F-60 number for export on the Chinese military blog, it is a Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter for a cheap replacement. Cliff, however, that the F-35 aircraft will not become strong competitors, because the plan to buy F-35 countries are U.S. allies, they do not buy Chinese fighter. “India will not, Russia will not,” Cliff said, “It almost left Pakistan, Brazil and some countries in the Middle East, none of them, a country may be in the next decade or two to buy U.S. F- 35 Cliff believe that countries such as Saudi Arabia which had purchased Chinese equipment would not be interested, because the U.S. can sell them the F-35, and they choose to buy the F-15 fighters. “If they intend to buy some more advanced equipment, they will likely buy the F-35, rather than low-end of the Chinese fighter.” ▲
