Just so long as they keep it out of an airshow the Russian engines should work just fine.....

The lead paint kills the air speed.

Well, we can hope they stole the oxygen supply system from the Raptor, too. Maybe they can figure out how to make it work.

Since the F22 costs 350 million per jet -why don't we just buy them from the Chinese for ...
(doing math)
...
.......
.... $.16 each?

Or not and save us the trouble of fighting a war with those planes.

Are they going to open it as a hotel like they did with their aircraft carrier?

/Really? This sounds like a fail name that "best korea" would come up with. That's the best you could do? Really? How about the "overpriced man thruster" or " steel cock with a pilot" just some suggestions.

We're never going to go to war with China. It would bankrupt our economy and plunge us into a depression the likes of which we haven't seen since Obama's first term as President.
 
2012-05-21 02:34:28 PM  
Good for them. A little healthy competition never hurt anyone.

...Well, except for the manual laborers.

There will never be a World War III.

If it's anything like our F-22 Raptor we have no worries.
F-22 = the plane the military didn't even want.

The NSA actually runs its own microchip fab plant to keep it local. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a backup plant or two buried in a mountain.

I'd rather fly a Mighty Dragon than a Hornet.

I'm okay with this. Let them build their F-22 knock-offs and fix the problems that we are currently facing. Then we can steal their technology to fix our technology.

No that's an excellent airframe. No extraneous hard points. Built to impress. I'll bet the engine just purrs once you get it rolling.

Oh, there was something about an airplane?

DysphoricMania: Pravda is quoting The Daily Mail as a source now? Yeesh.


It's not related to the Soviet Union Pravda. It's just some random Russians that registered the domain, and publish stories that are crap.

(I have no clue what the Soviet Union era Pravda published, I am just saying that this is not related).
 
2012-05-21 02:47:07 PM  
Are these the Russian engines made from steel that weigh four times as much as our titanium ones?

/And yes we probably bought that titanium from Russia.

I thought predicting the name of the next iOS was on the other thread...

The J-20 has been flying since January of 2011. Why does Pravda think it's a news story now, nearly 18 months later?

SoCalSurfer: If the Chinese fly like they drive I think we'll all be fine


What? You mean with one of those flip-down blue face shields, white cotton gloves, and a button-up shirt turned around backwards, just draped over the arms?

Or do you mean randomly speeding up and slowing down, then slamming on the brakes in a last ditch effort to dive across two or three lanes of traffic, narrowly missing both auto and pedestrian traffic in order to make it to purgatory known as the 99 Ranch parking lot?

They may have weighed 4 times as much, but they were a bit more hardcore than ours.

I would think that flying like a bat-shiat crazy person would be something you'd want in a fighter pilot.

Sure it is.

Most of my post was about how ridiculing China's grandiose/macho named plane, (and maybe it sounds great in Chinese) is a dumbass hyporcritical pot/kettle thing.

Still, just going by name, a hornet is still just a bug and a mighty dragon is a MIGHTY DRAGON!!

Dinodork: The J-20 has been flying since January of 2011. Why does Pravda think it's a news story now, nearly 18 months later?


Because this is the second prototype constructed. As flight testing goes, thats still pretty significant.
 
2012-05-21 03:01:58 PM  
Is anyone else having an issue where they go to a site, and it immediately goes to the comments section? Is this some new facebook IPO conspiracy.

The second prototype was built at the same time as the first. The significant thing I guess is that the new engines took 18 months to integrate.

Doesn't the WS-10 share a lot of the same core parts as the CFM-56 anyway?
 
Ehh
2012-05-21 03:03:59 PM  
Since it's Chinese, I guess it'll kill pilots much less reliably but for much less money.

Anyone else think the pictures of the J-20 in the Daily Mail article looked awfully rendered-y and 'shoppy???

/the wing decals look like you soak them in water before applying them
 
2012-05-21 03:18:44 PM  
Oh look, more propaganda for keeping the F35 program going. The J-20 is neither stealth nor a fighter, but don't let that stop you from shiatting your pants in fear.

Ha, go up to a white-faced hornet nest and yell, "You're just a bunch of bugs". and see what happens. Personally, I'll take my chances with the imaginary giant flying lizards.

/Hornets only attack if you threaten them.

They opened one a block from my office in Houston a few years ago. It's a madhouse.

It's also theonlyplace i've ever seen that carries durians and cow penis.
