Do you believe the ventral fin will move like this?
Image while a fighter being high attack angle, the ventral moving right to left in front view, which can contral the fighter nose turn to other
direction if it not losing speed. Losing speed, yes, that is point, while fighter go for high attack angle, the dorsal fin on it where is the first
place to losing speed but the ventral fin! So if you design in right way, the ventral fin could be a rudder which never losing maneuver energy.
ALso this above is image only, the layout out of chengdu aircraft factory is realy similar to, only one difference is using side airintake like
The other one out of shengyang as compeitor just looks like Su-33 with side airintake. Please notice both of them was designed as fitting vetral fin.
