Now it makes sense why Pence stated China is America's top enemy. With planes like these, and with Y-20 in service and H-20 unveiled next year, China's Triple 20 is almost complete.

It's a good looking bird but I can't say I saw them pressing any aerodynamic limits in that video.
One thing for certain is that this continuing military competition between nations is certainly on factor in technological innovation. Some of which will probably benefit non military applications somewhere down the line.

It's very cool.looking I have to give them that
But I would love to see side and read radar data on it. My guess is very noisy
From the front it is probably pretty good, but let's be real if the US and China get into an all out A2A shooting match most shots will be BUT for the Americans atleast, and that not even taking middle trucks linked to other platforms.
I highly doubt they would be there would be allot of dog fighting, it would be so short with the 9d's off boresight capabilities.
I imagine in a shooting war we would use some high fliers or sats to target the Chinese jets and unload a ton of missiles from a cargo of bomber aircraft and clean the rest up with fighters mostly still in BVR.
I could be super wrong, China might have a few tricks up their sleaves , but we already know their best ones because they took them from us
