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.
Was waiting for your response on this. I get extremely angry at espionage. No excuses.

Yeah, old reply, but still, what a load of BS in that article. Even with the data they got, you don't go from zero to best fighter ever in one try. It might be better than some of our other aircraft, but it's no way superior to the F-22, or even the F-35.
