Chinese jet design based on stolen U.S. plans?
Former Air Force Assistant Vice Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, (Ret.), on China’s J-31 jet reportedly based on information stolen from the U.S. through cyber attacks.
Did you silly Americans think for even a moment that, after your president Clinton signed this monumental trade deal with communist China, resulting in American manufacturing jobs being sent to China on a massive scale, that this would not be the predictable and inevitable consequence? OF COURSE CHINA COPIED YOUR JET you idiot Clinton voters! That's what China does.
Did you Americans not realize, especially after your copyrighted and trademarked materials were routinely copied by China, that they would not also copy military jets? GET REAL. You voted for Clinton TWICE - he was your "rock star." Now you cry woe-is-me.
And just wait til your Obama is done with you after you rewarded him with a second term.
Those same Chinese jets may well be flying your way to bite.
Bobby Joe 6 pack
Boris, it started with Nixon and his ambassador to China - Bush the elder.
what you post is utterly false. Nixon merely established dialogue and enhanced diplomatic relations with The Peoples Republic of China. This in no way compares to the mega deal brokered by Clinton. He even went on national TV to assure USA's workers that his was good for them, that it would expand new markets for American made goods. Clinton betrayed his union supporters who pleaded with him to relent. Clinton didn't just sign off on this deal with communist China, he aggressively promoted it.
Thank you, Boris. Someone had to destroy an idiot who might think this way.
You can't say "it's an exact copy" in one breath and then turn around and say "they added a second engine" in the next and have any credibility. You can't just add a second engine to a fighter jet without a complete redesign. If they did get hold of the plans for the F-35, they only used it as a basis for a completely new design. What's more is they made it a better jet because of the twin engine design. If you have an engine failure on a single engine jet then the best thing you can do is point it away from a populated area and punch out. With two engines, you stand a better chance of landing safely with the remaining engine. Russia has been copying our jets for decades. This is nothing new. Our enemies will take any advantage they can get.
not only that it makes them similar to rusian jet
The US jet engine success rate is 99.97%. The fail rate in this case can be neglect to accommodate for efficiency and agility. F-16 is a single engine fight jet and been in service since 1978 never had engine failure.
If one comes apart it's gonna damage the other engine so.... LOL
How can one tell from a photograph?
Well, I do not know anything about jet propulsion, nor anything about flight/air-dynamics, nor combustion at supersonic speeds, not to mention instrumentation and navigation.
It would be magic to read these systems off from photographs!
But, I do know the Chinese Engineers speak and perhaps use English language.
So, the Chinese plans were drawn up in metric standards in English language?
So, do they look like they were stolen, or they simple better?
Yup, they copied it.
Yah, just look at the pics: It has swept wings, a pilot's canopy, twin tails and... oops, the number of engines don't match. Never mind that little minor discrepancy, the wings and tails nail it - perfectly - don't they?...
Excuse me for laughing...
Too many traitors in America., and I'm not talking about the computer geek they are going to blame this "leak" on. The truth is after that "fall of the soviet union" lie in the 90s the traitors high up have been giving and selling secrets to russia and china. Add the ongoing invasion by illegals coming from all over the world including china and russia and you have a recipe for national suicide. The question is: what are YOU going to do about? Whine? Blame the other party? What are YOU willing to do to protect the Republic?
Now there's a surprise. Chinese espionage.
These billions of people have nothing, not even a good educational system.
We, the fools that we are, allow them to come here and get educated in our best colleges.
Hello, Companies are international , they have any thing you want, and make and sell to anyone. Please get off the beer and football games.
Our good friends the communist Chinese STOLE stuff from us? SHOCKING, simply shocking!
Chinese have been stealing since one was caught stealing under the Clinton administration. He of course was a dem favorite donor to the Clinton Election.
