China's radar-evading J-20 aircraft operational

China's radar-evading J-20 aircraft operational”

According to experts, the J-20, which can be concealed so that it cannot be detected on radar devices, is similar to the American fighter F-22 Raptor, which is manufactured by Lockheed Martin but does not have the same strength.

China's latest J-20 stealth fighter has been officially commissioned into military service, according to Wu Qian, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense on Thursday.

He said the flight tests are being conducted as scheduled.

The first appearance of the Chinese stealth aircraft was made public at the China International Aviation Fair in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province, in November 2016.

The stealth fighter jet's introduction could add a new dimension in the India-China air force balance.

The US Air Force operates the F-22 Raptor which is a fifth-generation stealth air-superiority fighter.

It is unknown how many J-20 fighter jets have entered service with the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). It is likely also symptomatic of China's current assertiveness in the region. This is important because current production models use a Russian engine-in future, China won't have to rely on a foreign supplier for that crucial part.
