China Debuts New Stealth Fighter Jet

11/01/2016

CBS News: “China’s J-20 stealth fighter made its public debut at an air show on Tuesday, in the latest sign of the growing sophistication of the country’s military technology. The fifth-generation warplane, which outwardly resembles the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor in service with the U.S. military, performed a series of maneuvers under overcast skies at Airshow China in the southern city of Zhuhai. The long-range J-20, armed with air-to-air missiles, performed its first test flight in 2011 and has been the object of feverish attention by the nation’s aviation buffs. At least six prototypes have been produced, according to an annual report on the Chinese military issued by the Pentagon this year.”
