    Comparing overhead views of China's J-20 and U.S. F-22

    [​IMG]

    Would you say there's a passing resemblance between the wing-shape of the J-20 and the F-22?

    Some have criticized the J-20's wing-shape for not being lambda. However, if the diamond wing-shape is adequate for the F-22 then shouldn't it be good enough for the J-20?

    I, for one, am just happy to have you and Blitizo clear up the situation regarding the straight delta wing. At first I was mislead by the perspectives of the "tail photo" and thought that straight delta wings were used, which would've been terrible for rear stealth. This proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, that trapezoidal wings similar to those on the F-22 were used instead.

    I think it is a good idea adapting the trapezoidal wings since it is proven technology. All known stealth fighters employ the trapezoidal wings.

    Time to grade J-20 Firefang against F-22 benchmarks

    [​IMG]
    China's J-20 Firefang stealth fighter

    Full glass cockpit? Check.

    High-tech glass digital display? Check.

    Diamond-shaped nose to deflect radar away from transmitter? Check.

    Diamond-shaped wings to ameliorate radar detection? Check.

    Angled fuselage to deflect radar away from transmitter? Check.

    Internal weapons bay? Check (almost indubitably; otherwise just stay with J-10).

    RAM (i.e. radar absorption material/coating)? Check (looks like it's coated already).

    J-20 prototype manufactured ahead of schedule? Check. Most of us thought it was at least a few years away.

    Flat nozzles for engines? Not yet. Chinese engine technology needs a few more years to catch up.

    Saw-toothed edges? Can't tell. Forthcoming high-resolution pictures will answer this question.

    Sleek and beautiful? Check.

    Final assessment: A+++ (F-22 technology at a China price!)

    I'm not sure that flat nozzles will be employed if rumors of 3d TVC are true.

    Really liked the name firefang though.

    Martian I shall steal your job once again. Clearest pictures of the J-XX to date (I know it will probably change tomorrow so why don't we have a contest :D).

    Looks like the big stars really do have August 1st inside of them. I think we can put the Russian Star debate to an end 100%.

    I must admit the pictures have gotten clearer progressively.

    I find it hard to believe that Chinese govt. wouldn't be able to maintain secrecy on a project like this. Points to an facilitated leak of pictures.

    Yeah dude. We've seen so much fanboy stuff over the past I was quite sceptical of the pics. But now I'm somewhat sure that this might be the real deal. Either that or I've gotta hire the guy who made these pics (I'm in mktg...:lol:)

    My solemn promise

    I, Martin, promise to never utilize the J-20 Firefang against my Indian friends. Unfortunately, as an ethnic-Chinese Taiwanese-American, my chances of becoming President of China is zero. Sorry guys.

    Nevertheless, the Firefang will be great to scare the pants off the U.S. Navy. :crazy_pilot:
