There.Thanks for your load of crap stealth spy and any other Indians,it is just a PROTOTYPE,with many MALFUNCTIONS,which means it will
probably not go into service until 2010.
The Chinese J-10 on the other hand,is being produced at the rate of ONE A MONTH,being a lot cheaper while able to do the same things.As for the
Chinese planes being pathetic copies,look at your own damn LCA,It is a modified Mirage which is expensive and has a lot of problems compared to the
J-10 which flies smoothly and is cheap.
PS:I had some other sources,but were lazy to list them out :p

Modified mirage? Then any delta wing aircraft we make is a "modified mirage"
The J-10 on the other hand is a rev- engineered f-16, fact of life.. they got it from the pakis.
And making 1 a month is so awesome!! NOT!! "breaking in " a fighter requires loads of testing and retesting. But nobody knows if the chinese have
done that. They won't say. All they say is we got new jet. We mass produce. What are you going to do with all those J-10s if theres and inherent flaw
in them . And don't tell me theres no flaw, the aircraft flies smoothly etc etc..because you cannot prove that. Why? No freedom of information
exchange on the J-10. The only info thats been "released" is positive and "success oriented."
The 'flaws' you point out on the LCA are publicised so everyone knows. Mass producing an aircraft doesn't mean anything until there's a consensus
that its proven and there can be no consensus on the J-10 because its not transparently exhibited. no chinese military products are transparent. Thats
why you can claim them to be "hi-tech" because they've never been actually matched aginst rivals. Same with your armed forces' training, and skill
level. No mock-exercises with other AF , navies and armies.
All I can say is 'unproven'. Unfortunately theres an international consensus on 'unproven' factor though, nothing else...
And thanks alan jones
for displaying your faith in indian aerospace!!
I would like to know in what capacity you worked with the indians..
See transparency helps prove that something is actually what its claims to be. Unless you have something to hide...
