China is secretly developing a new stealth fighter. It is called the J-21. It is suppose to be very similar to the F-22. Such a fighter would be a major challenge for US forces, considering America's F-22 has Oxygern issues. This would be the second such fighter developed by China. The J-20, has undergone massive test flights for the last 18 months.

Developing and bringing it into fleet are two different shoes.
Also, (not to defend F22) oxygen issue is something you can fix. It doesnt make the whole fighter useless, you can fix the issue.

BTW, link has been cut & its not secret if you know about it...

If the Chinese wanted to keep it secret, they would. The reason why they are not, is because they are throwing up some smoke and mirrors.

The Chinese tend to do the opposite of what they say they are doing (read The Art of War by Sun Si - they really do use its principles to the exclusion of almost anything else).

The Art of War

In accord with the Art of War, their strategy is to pretty much always bluff. If they are strong, they try to appear weak. That sort of thing.

The Chinese also like to take indirect strategies, rather than being direct.

Consequently, it is highly likely that the Chinese are not developing a stealth fighter at all, but rather are using this as an indirect strategy to achieve something else.

The question is, what is the something else?

Well, if we assume they would have a weapon that would make jet fighters obsolete, it would be a nice strategy to push the enemies to blow more money into developing better fighter jets, draining resources from other projects.
A weapon like a laser equipped satellite or sort of EMP that would drop those jets like flies on a surprising snow storm in the middle of summer.

When you hear that the Chinese have stolen the designs for and are developing our ultra-secret triangles, then you should be concerned. Let 'em have all the F-22s and F-35s they want. That is part of the plan, keep them busy with that old-fashioned stuff.
