    As I wrote in the begining of this thread, maybe the US should reconsider the numbers of F-22 to be aquired, just to be safe

    DoD estimate is JXX will enter service in 2018. That seems reasonable to me.
    Lockheed makes the F-35. They're also the primary contractors for the F-22.

    I'm sure they're waiting to see if this turkey flies or not. Among other things.

    yes, it is a strike fighter/bomber.
    AWACS、HQ、Radar、SAM、Ship……high value targets is on the top of target list.
    aircraft? it's AA missile's job.

    I love how they went for a canard config with the J-20. If anything, at least the Chinese cannot be accused of simply copying the F-22, PAK/FA.

    I really want this plane to succeed, it might just spur the F-35 team to finally get it's act together and deliver a viable fighter within a reasonable timeframe.

    From design it appears it would not have to fly/land with its gear doors open so ground clearance on landing wouldnt be an issue. Unless they suddenly got really stupid for no good reason.

    Attack could be one role but I think more important is to help secure Chinas territory space against foreign fighters, carriers and bombers. Denial of access. SAMs doesnt always do the trick due to a number of limitations.

    Maybe Australia can buy a few. At the end of the day we buy everything else why not fighter planes.

    Well yeah. Obviously this is controlled leak/PR/whatever and pictures looks very real. China strong.

    But why it's all happened right now?

    BTW does this airplane have 3D thrust vectoring? I'm judging by the size of the tails. The F-22 has only 2D thrust vectoring and it has big tails while the PAC-FA has 3d thrust vecotring and has relatively small tails (which to a degree compensates for the increased rcs from the regularly shaped engine nozzles). The J-XX has bigger tails like F-22 which leads me to believe that perhaps it has only 2d thrust vecotirng. Also the engines are relatively close together.

    It sure looks mean. Congratulations! Now get it into the air, and good luck.
