The Russians Provided China with Stealth Technology Employed in the J-20 Fighter


How's that reset button working-out, Barry?

According to a senior US lawmaker, the Russians provided China with the stealth technology they're now rolling-out for all the world to see... great. Add this to their new anti carrier missiles, and it's just like Dick Cheney warned us about... they're plainly going after the pillars of US military superiority, namely stealth aircraft and a blue-water Navy. This is the same Kremlin that Obama is so anxious to do arms deals with... in the name of bringing us peace!


Instead of viewing China as the enemy they clearly see themselves as -how else to explain firing missiles off the California coast- Obama has basically surrendered already, financially and otherwise... and really for no reason but the Dems' profligate spending habits that most Americans reject.

Some already consider the J-20 superior to the single engine F-35 we're developing... the more competitive F-22 has already been cancelled by Obama because it had "no peers"... like you'd want that, good grief. And what possible excuse for denying Israel... who were ready to order dozens on the plane... proliferation?  Too late now...

And well done, because now we've got one... with the Russian T-50 also on the way.  For these and other reasons, the House Armed Services Committee is more than a little bit worried about Obama's ongoing defense cuts...
China got the technology for its first stealth fighter jet from Russia, a senior US lawmaker said Tuesday, one week after the airplane apparently made its maiden flight. 

"My understanding is that they built it on information that they received from Russia, from a Russian plane, that they were able to copy," House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon told reporters. McKeon, a Republican, said he hoped to "hear more" on the issue from Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who was on a visit to Beijing when Chinese state media published photographs of the J-20 fighter in the skies over southwestern China. 

According to the reports, which cited witnesses, the next-generation war jet -- the existence of which highlights China's drive to modernize its military -- made a 15-minute test flight before landing. The lawmaker, who had been asked whether Beijing had obtained the technology needed to build such an advanced fighter from cyber-espionage, also stressed that "China's a concern" for US national security. 

"We need to be looking at China, we need to be looking at North Korea, we need to be looking at Iran," said McKeon, who has given a skeptical greeting to Gates' plans for reductions in US military spending. 

"That's what really concerns me when I look at the cuts, the potential cuts, that they're talking about for the defense budget. This is not a safe world," said the lawmaker.

An unofficial Chinese site has pictures of a Chinese stealth fighter said to be as invisible to radar and/or infrared sensors as an American F-22 Raptor... 

...experts say that the pictures were in the neighborhood development center in western China taken in stages, which they consider one of the last steps before the first flight of the machine....

So far the only fully operational "invisible" fighter in the world belongs to the U.S. Air Force, and the machine's the F-22. Daily also noted that the images leaked just days before the planned visit of U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in Beijing...


The Chinese government did not publish the photos-. Deputy Commander of the Chinese Air Force General, Che Wei-Zung, but said tests "invisible" airplane has before. He said that the machine will be deployed in eight to ten years. Until now, there was no evidence that the aircraft actually exists...

Chinese prototype according to the Washington expert on the Chinese military, Richard Fisher looks "superior to an American F-35", which the U.S. decided to give priority to the F-22, which is larger and more expensive. J-20 aircraft as the F-22, two engines and is roughly the same size. F-35 has only one engine. F-35, Americans should have out around 2014.
