ZHUHAI: China showed its Chengdu J-20 stealth fighter in public for the first time on Tuesday, opening the country's biggest meeting of aircraft makers and buyers with a show of its military clout.
Airshow China, in the southern city of Zhuhai, offers Beijing an opportunity to demonstrate its ambitions in civil aerospace and to underline its defence ambitions. China is set to overtake the US as the world's top aviation market in the next decade.
Two J-20 jets, Zhuhai's headline act, swept over dignitaries and hundreds of spectators and industry executives gathered at the show's opening ceremony in a 60-second flypast, generating a deafening roar that was met with gasps and applause and set off car alarms in a parking lot at the site.
"It is clearly a big step forward in Chinese combat capability," said Bradley Perrett of Aviation Week, a veteran China watcher.
Our Tejas is a very agile 4th gen fighter plane. A 5th gen fighter aircraft HAL''s AMCA is in the process. It will be production ready by 2023. We have battle-tested Mig-29, sukhoi and mirage in our force. Rafale is coming. We have very brave and expert pilots in our side. Indian Air Force is capable of meeting any challenges
For cow sake, open your eyes and brain. Admit that India is nothing in comparison to China. China can invade and capture India in less than 24 hours
less than 24 hours? haha your knowledge is limited and war results cannot be predicted with numbers
For dragon sake, please wake up from your wild dream. China can never capture India. Please use at least google to know about India''s Military power. Then you will come know India is capable of defend its borders and repel any kind of attack.
Tejas could be as good as J20. India needs to develop indigenous capability, nobody would transfer the latest technology. Either Modi-Parrikar are naive or outright idiots.
India should really be worried. Once china starts mass prodction of these planes expect eastern sector of india will be in trouble and this will happen very quickly as china is not competing with india, is is atleast 20 years ahead and is next superpower this century
