They're not as capable. But the J-31 has been called the Chinese F-35.

Chinese J-31

Humph.. interesting to say the least...




J-20, as is well known, is a copy of the rejected Soviet-designed MiG 1.44.


Look here..

They currently have two, the J-20 and the J-31. The J-31 may be mostly for export to countries that can't buy the F-35, but they've never been clear on if it's going to be for their service only, or only for export, or both. The J-31 is a twin engine that looks a lot like the F-35 in basic planform.

Dude you know how I feel about the F35;
It's made everything before it obsolete,
everything after it is better.
The only good thing about it is how it can take different roles and is versatile...

We get defense news still.. theyre always giving new info on aircraft. Its where I first read about the J 20.. and the hacker who plead guilty. We're near an AFB here, but when stationed at Offutt.. holy cow.. you even got to see ( and hear) the newest and greatest. Like that f-35 lightening 2 at last years air show..

During his recent trip to Australia Bogdan was discussing the F-35 in the context of each of the US services and interoperabillity with existing and other systems. When referring to the C model operating in concert with the Hornet he made repeated references to the Advanced SH and how the C model would work together. When questioned about the Advanced remark he made assurances that it didn't mean a reduction in A models and that they were endeavoring to provide the current administration with a map of how the Advanced Supers and C models for the USN will work and what the mix should be. He stated that the investigation is ongoing. So if a deal has been done to commit to the Adv SH (and there is logic in this even if they are upgrades of the current late block builds), then maybe Canada is aware of this and is keen to buy in?

Canada is not getting the F35C, they don't have a carrier for them to operate from.

This was a political decision, one that will cost the Canadian taxpayers dearly.

It doesn't matter though. The systems in the A and the C are almost identical, so an A would interface in the same way, if Canada were to buy them. And you don't have to have a carrier to operate the C.

No you misunderstood me.

I wasn't saying that Bogdan (or myself) was suggesting Canada would buy the F-35 of any model. What he said and made no attempt to play down or say was merely a hypothetical exercise was that they (the F-35 program office and the USN) were looking at how to operate an Advanced Super Hornet. That would therefore be of interest to Canada as a potential alternative to the F-35.

The liberals just kicked the can down the road as far as their fighter replacement program goes. Now they get a last generation platform for the the same price they could have purchased F35's for. Plus they stand to lose their contracts from Lockheed. I'm not a supporter of this decision. Justin just cost us big time. Think he cares? Hell no, he's too busy giving us a carbon tax thats going to do even more to hurt our economy.

Just wait. Pretty soon they're going to upgrade the slingshots and dog sleds.


So you've seen our feel good about not guarding the north video.

For a while we had a dynamite recruitment video.

People complained it made the force's to sexy.

Geez Canada, what do you need aircraft for? Sounds like a bunch of war-mongers to me.


Please indicate if you mock us or is a straight up comment so i can decide how politely to answer.

I was being sarcastic. Canadians are always critical of the U.S. trying to have a strong military, I was just giving them a little jazz back. I have nothing against Canada improving their military, it's smart, peace through strength.

Sorry just saw this. Perhaps I'll catch up first.

Agreed.
Enough people wanted a pretty boy aarrghhh ( grinding teeth) but I am not sure it would have been different even if the election went differently.

The block would have jet-blocked us any way.

Big mistake, politically motivated.
F-35 was the way to go.
Now Lockheed will retaliate and cancel the contracts the Canadian aerospace industry had.


Most of the public up hear thinks we only get that if we buy. I post and post and they tell me i am wrong.
