Half of stealth is having a stealthy shape, the other half are composites and RAM.

Sino-Spear III Small Diameter Powered Air-to-Ground Munition unveiled.

With this baby, China's stealth fighters could carry a substancial amount of about 100km ranged stealthy and guided AGMs in their internal bays that can also be used for anti-ship strikes.

These seem to be all anti-armor weapons. This is surprising.

Why would they need those aerial guided anti tank weapons?

China's only way of winning the air war against US allies is to strike their airbases and render their aircrafts useless before battle. Hence they need a lot of modern AG weapons to carry out shock and awe attacks, while being supported by their traditional ballistic missiles and cruise missiles.

>>23541230
I see one in front of the cockpit, left of center and one directly behind where the ducted fan on the F-35B is. I see possibly one under the cockpit and a couple after the weapons bay on the nacelles on the underside.

Either this plane has not been fitted with full avionics/targeting/nav/radar packages or they are extremely optimistic about service crew access.

Also, squint. hur hur.
>>
They aren't running and Luneberg Lens.

CIA should be getting radar profile data on it.
>>
>>23541293
I'm going to take a wild guess here and say it's both. These are still relatively early prototypes, and I'm guessing all the shit they've claimed for it is mostly still vapourware and dreams.

also, not having dealt with the maintenance issues one learns to design around over 100 years of aviation prototyping, they may be less wary of maintenance cycle time/effort. So where crew access is a major feature for the F-35 after the clusterassfuckshitparty the F-14 was for crew, the Chinese may have this lesson to look forward to.
>>
>>23541351
I wonder as well.

Considering they have been flying the J-20 with one all the time.
>>
>>23541396
just a guess here, but they may be flexing a bit with the J-31, thinking they've done well this time around. The J-20 probably still needs a lot of work on radar sig, and they may have been trying to hide how behind they were.
>>
>>23541421
other way around.

J-31, as it is, is still X-35 tier in terms of development. Early prototype , while the J-20 is about to be finished and completing its final tests, as reported recently.

As we can see from the mockup of the final variant, the final J-31 will look quite different from the one flying now.
>>
>>23541351
You know, with all the talk about Russian and Chinese "stealth workarounds", doesn't it stand to reason that the US probably knows more than the rest of the world combined on how to defeat stealth features? I mean, we've been the only country operating stealth aircraft for 30 years now, so you'd think we'd know the vulnerabilities in our own systems.

Does anyone here think the Russians know more, and if so, why? I'm seriously curious.
>>
>>23541449
Except everything I hear seems to suggest the J-20 still has a long way to go. Are they just going to go with rolling upgrades or something?
>>
>>23541465
Yeah, pretty much.

J-20A of 2017 will still fly with uprated WS-10G without TVC in a few brigades, and the subsequent batches will add additional features and a new stealthy WS-15 TVC engine along the way.
>>
>>23541492

Also, "4th generation" is a chinese designation for 5th generation.

China's aircraft generations formula doesnt distinguish between the western 1st and 2nd generations (Me 262 vs. MiG-15, F-86 etc) of jet aircrafts. They are putting both in one generation.

I always assume that with enough jamming and EW systems you can pretty much neutralize any stealth advantage and BVR attack from crafts such as F22.

I am wrong about this?
>>
>>23541923
Sure, but who's currently fielding the best EW systems and the best integrated platforms to run them? Everything we hear out of Russia and China is about fighter catch-up. Are their Growler/AWACS anywhere near on par with the US? Are their stealth platforms fielding the same signal processing/strength the US is cramming into their F-22/F-35s? Also, how will EW/jamming defeat the passive stealth features in VLO aircraft?

correct, but that shape needs to be based on the physics of how radar waves bounce and not how US planes look.

They were no where near 30 years behind 10 years ago, and they are no where near "caught up". They are still over 10 years behind, even more if the J-20 turns out how its looking (underpowered, huge, underarmed)

And no, China's very very conservative and secretive with their military developments.

Till now, there's still no official confirmation about the existence of the J-20 programme from the PLA.

Same applies to China as well. We also dont know their full array of weapon systems until they are testing them.

Like that one recent ASAT laser test, which was a destructive laser and not just a blinding laser as in 2004.

There are generations in pretty much everything. Generations of tanks, airplanes, etc. It covers all nations. Its used internally and externally by everyone. (even when the metrics dont match)

Not really. There's no solid definition what constitutes a generation. So it's made up and used in a way to support the opinion of someone, used as a substitute for real arguments.

Oh no, china is not talking about "littering" space, they are talking about removing any and all sats in space, for CENTURIES, at the very least, and if left alone, basically forever.

Furthermore, both the US and the USSR has taken great pains to remove sats during their tests to create minimal debris.

China does not care. Thats pretty much the problem.

You imply that there are constitent definitions at least within countries. That already is wrong.

If there was one point I made clear it was that I hold these terms to be meaningless. Therefore I cannot and will not say anything remotely like that.

That's about the thing I mean when I talked about substitutes for arguments. It's like name-dropping Jesus or claiming that the whole country likes beer of the brand X. It's a marketing strategy that doesn't hold any substance whatsoever. Saying "the rest of the world disagrees" e.g. ignores countless critics of the generation concept and its various definitions. It's a trick that is supposed to pull the reader on one's side by claiming to be right through appeal to majority, with a non-sourced claim for said majority.

A shield, not a single missile. An actual system of radars and missiles able to adequately defend an area.

You have a few tests, we have a working system for battle groups. It would not (and we are with aegis ashore) be hard to extend this to landmasses.

Ahh yes, like if you say anything about generations he can ignore the argument at hand and strawman on how they "dont matter".

Clever, but transparent and ultimately ineffectual.

Pretty much. Unfortunately, most younger people don't have argumentative skills to speak of and simply don't recognize such things. Hell, I would argue most people that use the technique doesn't realize that's what they're doing.

Ok, so you are saying Boeing does not follow the generation trends (calling something next generation, etc)?

Funny, as you did the same thing, but think yourself above it.

>>23548819

It isn't a fallacy when it's relevant to the argument at hand. Which it is in this case.


>>23548788

I've been running into that one a lot of late. It's both humorous and frustrating at the same time.

Also, people that can't even recognize that a "fallacy" actually isn't one depending on what is being discussed. Slippery slope being a prime example.
>>
>>23548839
>It isn't a fallacy when it's relevant to the argument at hand

Translation: I can do it becuase i think im right.

You calling the critics "countless" is just the same as me saying "the rest of the world".

Difference is, i can name countries and company's that follow the trend, and you cant name even 5, much less the original 10

There is more than two people in this thread. I haven't even commented on the topic of the discussion, just the poorly executed arguments. So go fuck yourself, child.

When the fallacy i was referencing WAS. Why defend somebody, especially when you are wrong?

Boeing does actually both, they criticize it and use it, once they realized that merketing term isn't going away.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth-generation_jet_fighter#Critics_and_alternative_definitions

Remember, it only popped up around the 90s. Some claim it was invented by the Russians in the mid-90s:
http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/history/q0182.shtml

Though I know of a guy who formulated generations in early 1990:
http://www.airpower.au.af.mil/airchronicles/apj/apj90/win90/1win90.htm
That's the bureaucrat I referred to earlier.

Before the 90s or, more specifically, before the F-22, there didn't seem to be fighter generations. Either nobody seemed to regard that concept as valid or discussing it was uninteresiting. Once Lockheed marketed it aggressively, it became a thing. But it still doesn't mean anything as there's no agreement as to what constitutes a generation.
>>
>>23548900
but generations, especially to tanks, have existed far longer. Its not just a fighter term, its a general term.
>>
>>23548852
>You calling the critics "countless" is just the same as me saying "the rest of the world".
If you claim I'm the only one who holds the opinion that fighter generations is a meaningless term, then it's a valid counterargument to show just one other critic. And of course they are countless, meaning it's impossible to count them or name them all. I'd have to search the whole internet and would still not find all of them.
>>
>>23548899

It appears one of you isn't being consistent in your posting style which, for some one not really following the post chain is annoying at best (possibly samefagging going on). Regardless, it seems you cannot appreciate nuance which is what I and the other anon was speaking on. Waste your time arguing with him, not me.

this.

China's rise doesnt threaten the US in their existence or economic survival any bit, but only threatens her far-away hegemony to police places and regions on earth where they do not even belong in.

In fact, China already offered to the US to split the Pacific in two spheres of influences and build a new great power relationship of equality and coexistence.
But the US only answered with containment and aggression.

Remember; China never pushed their SCS claims so strong before the US seeks to back the Japanese on everything they want to do vis a vis the Diaoyu.

China really is liek Zero One in Animatrix, wanting co-existence with the humans, but only getting hatred and containment in return. Wouldnt be surprising if China had a Samson Doctrine for this as well.
>>
>>23548966
>I'd have to search the whole internet and would still not find all of them.

that does not mean they are without count, i.e. countless. You are still wrong. Even if it was every human, its still countable.

>Translation: I can do it becuase i think im right.

Dont throw stones if you live in a glass house

>>23548912
Maybe. But does that term mean anything? Is there a generally accepted definition? Or does everybody use their own to support their own opinion?
>>
>>23548986
>In fact, China already offered to the US to split the Pacific in two spheres of influences and build a new great power relationship of equality and coexistence.

I.e. "let us bully our neighbors please, and threaten global trade for our own benefit".

No. Nope, you wont get away with being the bully, sorry china.

Who's the autist now? By any human standard it means precisely that.
>>
>>23549031
No, see, if you want to play the autist game and not deal with colloquialisms, fine.

By stating your supporters as "countless" you committed the argumentum ad populum fallicy. You did.

Again, dont throw stones if you live in a glass house.

The circular engine ducts are more efficient and allow better (2 degree of freedom per nozzle) thrust vectoring.

F-22 was developed with early (1 degree of freedom per nozzle) thrust-vectoring technology.

Because Soviets actually rejected the western institutions and wanted to have a parrallel world where only their communism was allowed.

China initially didnt reject the West, but wanted cooperation and coexistence. China didnt challenge the western international institutions, until now when the USA is actively trying to push her out of most of them (like rejecting China's participation with the ISS, even if Europe invited them, or giving China dispropotionally less voting rights in the IMF and WTO).

Nowadays, China is truly fed up of being treated unfairly by the western institutions, that were founded to perpetuate western rule over the world. Which is why she now seeks to build parallel institutions, like the New Asian Development Bank, BRICS bank etc.

But still, China doesnt reject Capitalism per se. She just rejects American hegemony over the capitalist economy around the world, and would be content with an arrangement that would see China and the USA coexisting together as two economic centers of the world. And not one, where China is merely a larger Japan to the USA, a junior partner without their own sovereignity and having her economy being dictated by US multi-nationals.
>>
>>23549485
Mexico and Latin America surely also didnt want to live under US hegemony before the Monroe Doctrine kicked in. They would rather invite European Powers to balance American growing hegemony.

Problem is just, America fucked them up in a war and kicked the European Powers out of the American continent by force.

China was just not as fast and as ruthless as you.
>>
>>23549561
>China initially didnt reject the West, but wanted cooperation and coexistence

False, you wanted the west out of your corner of the world so you can rule it like madmen, cut off international trade routes and otherwise fuck with japan because you hate japan immensely.

No. Watch Vietnam swallow its pride and ask for more US assistance to prevent them from becoming China Proxy State Z301. Watch it happen.
>>
>>23549706
That was the natural reaction after the US declared her Middle Eastern adventures to be over, and diverted their attention to China, beginning with a similiarily stupid containment strategy which has also driven Russia towards China via unneeded and unnecessary provocations, such as missile defense shields and supporting color revolutions.

China and the USA are now locked in a Great Power conflict. This isnt wrong.

But how it began should be clear. China wasnt the one who started it. China lived well for so long without needing to raise the SCS or the Diaoyu/Senkaku issue - it was the USA who began to use all the asian nations as proxies to contain China and spoke openly about cutting China off her maritime oil line by chocking off the Malacca strait.
AirSea Battle and The War On China also was conceptualized far before China even began with her maritime provocations or even began to modernize and expand her navy.

The US already fell in the Thucydides Trap when China stopped being economically shit and began to grow stronger, hence initiating a Security Dilemma.

They became aggressive after the US already began to stirr shit up against them.

China even had annual military excercises with Vietnam and the Philippines before all the shit started, and gave weapons, money and training to Philippine troops to combat the Maoist insurgency in their jungles. This wasnt so far back.
