The J-20 aircraft will be a threat to the US Air Force.

China yesterday launched the J-20 stealth fighter, an aircraft model that has caused many heated debates in the world military since its appearance in 2010, according to CNN.

Promoted as a state-of-the-art 5th generation aircraft model designed and manufactured by China, capable of competing equally with America’s most modern stealth fighters, the question that military analysts ask is

If compared directly with the US F-22 and F-35 aircraft, the J-20 is clearly inferior in stealth capabilities.

China also lacks experience and technology in manufacturing radar absorbing materials.

These sensor systems are especially important.

Much inferior to the F-22 and F-35, but the J-20 still has many advantages over its competitors from the US.

Large size helps the J-20 carry more fuel, increase combat range and reduce dependence on aerial refueling aircraft.

Ultimately, the J-20 will be produced in larger numbers than the F-22 and even the F-35, if China’s defense budget is maintained at its current level.

The J-20 gives the Chinese Air Force (PLAAF) the ability to carry out long-range attack missions against a series of air bases, aircraft carriers, early warning and tanker aircraft.

Even if it lacks stealth capabilities compared to the F-22 and F-35, the J-20 will still be very dangerous if flown in a regular aircraft formation.

For the US, it poses a serious threat if there is a conflict in the Taiwan Strait or the disputed Senkaku island group in the East China Sea.

When entering mass production and service, the J-20 will be a weapon completely superior to the Su-30 and Su-35 versions that China is currently operating, CNN writer Justin Bronk concluded.
