Chengdu J-20 Fifth Generation Fighter Jet – Latest Update


In August 2008 it was reported that 611 Institute was
selected to be the main contractor for the development of the
fifth-generation stealthy J-20, and that 601 Institute was the

Now 611 Institute has started to issue manufacturing drawings for
constructing the first prototype, which is expected to fly by 2011.

The only Russian input is AL-31F Engine for prototype which is replaced by WS-15 Chinese Engine in serial production.

The latest news suggested first Chengdu J-20 Fifth Generation Fighter had been built at CAC.

    Engine rather looks like a WS-10 series one.

    The nozzle is too broad and short to be a AL-31F…

    But whatever. lets just wait for clearer pics…

    So USA! Prepare for a war with China! But don't worry. They steal your technology, but it's a cheap copy. The problem is that they outnumber you. And quantity always win with quality.

  • Another conspiracy photo? This photo reminds me of big foot with the same poor quality. There are so many photos on the internet claiming that "this is the real Chinese fifth generation aircraft" and it always proves false.

    I seriously doubt this will materialize into anything, and will probably just die as other so-called "photos of the new Chinese aircraft" had in the past.

  • To all the peace lover ,

    The Chinese J20 is as good as other top fighter jet. But what Chinese does is what i most respected which the USA NEVER ever could do it. The Chinese PLA uses its military jet for peaceful purpose for decades . The America uses the fighter jet to threaten the world peace , and of course the J20 is the answer for it. If USA is not threating the world peace . The Chinese will not make this kind of weapon . Good on u China. U are the world peace lover , the world is looking up at u for that. Cheers !!!! USA is not supposed to be the ONLY superpower which is not good for world peace. We need a balance superpower like China !!!

    You mean "to all the pseudo peace lovers" or "to those who are Hitler in disguise"? Shall I remind you that PLA is backing up governments of North Korea, Iran, and all those Axis of Evil. If this is what you see as a principal means of bringing world peace and progress, then I highly recommend you and your family to move to one of those countries, particularly China, and spend the rest of your life there enjoying the quietude, peace and serenity created by the so-called respectable governments, if you have not done so. Just to be clear, when I use the term "Axis of Evil", I don't mean it as defined by the US government, but from the perspective of the general public
    of the world.

  • I am so lucky that I do not live in USA..a nation of evil and sick people, where a rape is committed every 32 seconds. MAFIA and drug lords call the shots and murder is ripe every minute of the day. Anyone who is not white is treated like dirt and has no rights (even though officially all Americans are equal). The white settled there and took the land of the real Americans, these being the Red Indians. Now they back all nations that have a similar history, like, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Indian Occupied Kashmir! The white Americans seem to support war and blood hungry regimes, like Israel. Compare for example, Iran, Israel and USA. How many wars have these nations fought? Who started the war. US has waged war on most of the world at one time or other, including Britian. Israel has waged unprovoked wars on all its neighbours. Iran on the other hand has only fought one defence war against Iraq, which was proxy war between US & Iran. what was surprising was that US supplied weapons to Iraq openly but also supplied weapons to Iran secretly. Weapons were also supplied by Israel as it saw Iraq a bigger threat then Iran. when the world discovered this evil intend of US, there was an outcry by the International committee, not least Iraq, the news was aired on BBC as well. But as no one could take on the US at the time apart from USSR, but it was busy in Afghanistan at the time, so US once again got away with it! We need a nation that can check US and soon China will do just that! Of course, someone who is evil, like the US, doesn't see it self bad, just sees others as evil. since when did the devil think he was wrong? Being the holder of a EC passport, I don't even need a Visa to go to USA, but I have never had the desire to go to place that are pure evil.

  • and just to add…there are countries far far far better in the world that Americans can only dream of!!!!

    @myfair…u seems to be either a chinese media fed communist or the brainwashed muslim living in either arab or pakistan…the whole free world consider china,north korea,iran,pakistan as a major threat to peace…but u can never acknowledge this and continue to live in the state of denial…well i guess u're free to think whatever suites u but the reality is neva gonna chnage…
    and as far as this super duper j-20 is considered…it'd be better if it rolls off with all systems integrated…chinese r building their plane "outside in"…they're the master of reverse engineeing and copying….
