I went back through the past months posts here adi am surprised no one seems to have posted this news. (Did i just miss it somehow?). After all, its
pretty profound if true:
The Chinese have declared IOC for the chengdu J-20 stealth fighter.
This means the us military no longer has a monopoly on 5th gen fighters or stealth aircraft.
It is not clear what the role of the J-20 is yet: we think its n AWACS killer but the Chinese are not saying.
It is not clear how many J-20 are production versions and how many are still just preproduction prototypes. How many really ARE in service?
It is also unclear what the J-20 is capable of at IOC too.
