I just never understand why such sensitive data is kept on systems attached to the internet.
Perhaps to screw with China.
Nor is it clear to what extent Beijing based the new aircraft on stolen American blueprints. Whenever a new Chinese warplane appears, foreign observers claim it’s a ripoff of a U.S., Russian, European or Israeli design. They’re not always wrong. The PLA possesses unlicensed copies of Russia’s Su-27 and Su-30 fighters.
