But can it poo in loo?
>>
>>27801012

It seems like all 5th gens are going to end up looking nearly identical to the F-22, except for the F-35 which is distinctive because of its single engine.
>>
I see nothing about stench capability in these specs. OP confirmed for full of shit.

How can an aviation industry go from building a glorified F-5 to building a true 5 gen?
>>
>>27801048
AMCA is a thing, and it will probably look like that.

But it will suck. It's Indian, so it'll be somewhat over budget and way short of performance goals. The root design isn't all that great either - look at those rounded-ass exhausts.

India would be better off buying some Rafales or something.
>>
>>27801068
>India would be better off buying some Rafales or something.
Air Force wanted to but Modi didn't let them because he wants support for the indigenous turd supposed to replace the gazillion MiG-21
>>
>>27801091

Is there anything that stops them from buying 1 rafale, then tearing it apart to copy it?
>>
>>27801053
They can't.
>>
>>27801012
So they expect to jump from the development, part production and assembly of the modest Tejas to that, while they admitted they don't have the expertise to assemble Rafales locally? And have a first prototype by 2019?
>>
all these 5th gen stuff coming out except russia and probably china all look like f22 lite
>>
>>27801109

Most sales are done in bulk or squadrons. So think 14 or maybe half that at minimum.

China has both an f-22 ripoff and f-35 ripoff in the works.

J-20, J-31
>>
>>27801296
The J-20 is 10 feet longer and five feet wider.

The J-31 has two engines and is bigger as well.

>being wrong.
>>
>>27801308
..so?

The size of the J-20 is partially due to them having equally fuck huge missiles. J-31 too, but the engines is due to them having shit-tier engine technology.

Don't get all buttblasted.

>>
>>27801318
You're wrong. The J-20 looks nothing like an F-22. It is way longer and wider. It also has canards.

The J-31 is bigger and has two engines. It's wing is also larger. It looks like a 35 , but is significantly different when you do more than just look at it in a picture.

I'm not buttblasted. You're just wrong.

Physics is hard and does not value artistic creativity.

When Indian fighter pilots need to take a shit, do they have designated shitting landing strips for that?
>>
>>27803680
Well of course function always beat form, but I get what he means. I too long for the days when every plane was different and unique. Just compare Zeros, Corsairs, Typhoons and Fw190's. Same goes for SF. Everyone used to look unique. Now you can't tell difference between an American, Russian or Australian because they all rock AR's, multicam and Ops-Core. Kinda boring.

No, but it has a designated shitting surface for long-endurance patrols.

>>27803859
8 feet longer, 2 feet wider, 2400 kg heavier, 2600 kg more fuel, has canards main wing is further back, main body is wider in the back than the front unlike the F-22, horizontal stabilizers have a smaller surface area relative to weight, and the plane was made in China.

The J-20 likely incorporates some design information they stole from America in the mid 2000's, but it is different in every physical appearance way.

Finally, do you think 5th generation jets should look all that vastly different from each other?
By your logic a F-15 (larger wing area) and a F-18 (has canard like surface) are based upon each other.

No arguments, I see.

The J-20 looks nothing like an F-22 and it cant even have any F-22 stolen technologies, because it is, electronically, further advanced than the F-22.

F-22 doesnt have EOTS, EODAS or GaN AESA.

Looks just like japans 5gen the Mitsubishi ATD-X Shinshin and Koreas 5gen concept the KAI KF-X.

Seeing this shit just makes me think how hard it actually is for counties to develop a 5gen from scratch. They clearly have no idea what they are doing and are just trying to copy the F-22 as much as they possibly can. Hell, France isnt even trying for a 5th gen and instead plan to skip to 6th. Top Kek good luck with that when you cant even make a Raptor or F-35 competitor.
Goes to show how far ahead the US is seeing how the F-22 is about 20 years old now.

>inb4 J-20
Its a ripped off MiG-1.44
>inb4 T-50
Its just a evolution of the SU-27 design. Not truly from scratch
>inb4 all stealth aircraft designs naturally converge and have to look the same
Reminder that the YF-23 was stealthier than the F-22. Ill also point you to Americas 6th gen concepts that look radically different
>also inb4 mad replies
>>
>>27801318
Come on. Are you really arguing a canard fighter is a clone of the f22?

wtf am i reading
>>
>>27801012
If their defense industry spent 30 years trying to build a simple domestically produced MBT, meanwhile their entire aerospace industry at best can produce fucking clones of a third gen aircraft.... How the FUCK do they expect to produce a prototype FIFTH GEM FIGHTER in less than four years?
>>
>>27801012
based on how every single indigenous weapon that India creates is absolute shit, I have extremely low expectations for this program.

"poo in loo stronk!"
Yeah, and if the world's largest economy with some of the world's greatest aerospace engineers and programmers are having so much trouble making the F-35 be successful, shitskins are going to absolutely shit the bed.

We will see.

/k/ tends to be pretty retardedly jingoistic to the point where they unironically believe the US Coast Guard could defeat China. In a day. With no casualties.

If they go for two uprated F-114s from GE I could definitely see it happening. The Jews will gladly give them stolen US tech for the electronics in exchange for shekels.
>>
>>27806682
>/k/ tends to be pretty retardedly jingoistic

There's also the polar opposite of that.
Like actually believing India is going to have anything remotely resembling Gen 5 fighter by 2019.

>>
>>27806682
those rudders look retardedly big, and the elevators retardedly small. Look at any 5+/6th generation fighter, the elevators and rudders are about the same size. THis kind of reminds me of the "Iranian Stealth Fighter" that used parts from a Cessna.
>>

Go try and ask >>>/int/
>>
>>27806825
>still no reports of first flight
And it's still only the tech demonstrator. So how many years will it take for the real thing to enter service even if we assume that the ATD-X flies tomorrow?
>>
>>27807013
It was supposed to fly this year but got pushed back to 2016
