There have been no official Chinese disclosures as yet, so many of the claims about the aircraft appearing in the media may only be speculation presented as fact.

New Chinese Stealth fighter. Only other country, after US, that might have a functionning stealth fighter.
This was supposedly meant to be top secret. Pictures were realeased. Strict-internet control communist chinese government didn't take the pictures down. Suspicious.

Are you sure? The F35 is not even in full production for the AirForce yet, why would the US be dumb enough to sell a fighter that is the latest and greatest and not even in full use in our own AF?

Just looked it up: Israel is a POTENTIAL buyer of the plane, just as a few other countries are, but to date no one outside the US has this plane.

They just want the world to know.

Yeah I know they have a prototype. As to its actual use? I believe US is the only country with active stealth fighter jets. *F22/B-2 in case you're curious*

The Sukhoi PAK FA won't be used until 2015. *planned*

They have already been APPROVED by the US for purchase. They have ordered 20.

As for why they are allowed, or why the US will sell them the latest F35 stealth fighters, it's Israel - but that is the whole point why other countries in the region feel they need to improve their defences


Also, I still do not see why China having stealth fighter planes is a problem. If the US has them, and Russia and Israel will have them soon, why can't China?

It is almost always about having a deterrent for war - the same reason why they all also have nukes.

lol, you'd be suprised exactly what comes from China these days and just how reliable it can be.

Sure, a cheaply manufactured knock off part made in a sweatshop might fall apart upon opening, but I'd expect that China's military would be quite capable of manufacturing a plane that will be reliable enough to get the job done

Bingo.

Major powers are all smart enough to avoid a war at all cost. Let's face it, if the world's two largest economies collide, US and China, the resulting economic disaster would make 1929 Black Friday look like a joke.

Can you imagine what would happen, if all store shelves become empty in 2 weeks? Your $20 electric fan, suddenly becomes $200? A pair of socks suddenly become $35?

High tech war machines are meant to prevent wars, by scaring each other, rather than start wars.
