THE shock unveiling of a new Chinese stealth fighter aircraft has changed Asia's power balance and means Australia must dramatically rethink its regional strategy, according to an Australian analyst.
Peter Goon, a vehement critic of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Australia has committed to buying from the United States, says the Chinese J-20 is far superior to the American fighter and Australia must immediately adapt to the new status quo.

Also it may be that the electronics and or the other tech may be inferior to our stuff.
Even the weapons (ie missiles etc) may not be as good.

I suppose a very powerful China that competes directly with the US would be a good thing for world peace. Smaller countries would play off one power against another and be left alone.
The US has proven itself to be a danger to the planet and even to its own citizens. Hopefully an aggressive and powerful China will moderate the US government and Israel. China needs to establish a power block like NATO and use the North Koreans like the US uses Israel to kill and terrorise parts of the world.
Having seen Chinese kids play computer games, I have a feeling that any conflict in future with equally matched aircraft will be a rude awakening. It is worth noting that most American fighters since WW2 have only been used against third world airforces.
