It's a knock off of the American F16. Our friends in Israel and Pakistan were instrumental in it's developement. With friends like this, who needs enemies.

Latest Chinese Warplane Flies with US Technology

By David Isenberg - Asia Times 12-3-2

US Technology Appears In New Chinese Warplane Via Israel

The recent unveiling (sort of) of China's first domestically-designed (sort of) fighter jet was the culmination of a long saga of international military-hardware wheeling and dealing that has seen US-designed or -funded high-tech weaponry fall into the hands of potential military rivals.

The showpiece of many years' work, dating back to the late 1980s, recently happened - albeit unobserved - when China confirmed the existence of, but did not unveil, the Jian-10 fighter jet. It had been reported that the J-10 (F-10 being the export version, using North Atlantic Treaty Organization designation) would be shown in public for the first time during the fourth China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition (Airshow China 2002) held in Zhuhai in southern Guangdong province from November 4-10, but the plane did not appear.

The J-10 is a multi-role single-engine and single-seat tactical fighter, with a combat radius of 1,000 kilometers. Although billed as a domestically produced fighter, in truth the J-10 could not have happened without the help of other countries, especially
Israel.

3. Locking.
While we support open discussion, truthseeker is a notoriously bigotted piece of work. We're locking this one.
Thanks for your consideration.
