China denies using US stealth fighter technology
An official Chinese newspaper has dismissed a report that the country used technology taken from a downed US aeroplane in its own stealth fighter programme.

The J-20 prototype stealth fighter, which could one day challenge US air superiority, made its first-known test flight early this month during a rare visit to China by the US defence secretary, Robert Gates. It surprised many defence analysts, seemingly indicating that China was acquiring cutting-edge technology more rapidly than thought.

China says the plane is based entirely on indigenous designs, and the Global Times today quoted an unidentified defence ministry official as dismissing an Associated Press report citing Balkan military officials and other experts claiming that China likely gleaned some know-how from an American F-117 Nighthawk shot down over Serbia in 1999.

"It's not the first time foreign media has smeared newly unveiled Chinese military technologies. It's meaningless to respond to such speculations," the official was quoted as saying by the newspaper, which is published by the ruling Communist party's flagship People's Daily.

1. Yeah, 'cause everyone knows China's got nothing on the U.S. regarding technology or science.
They HAD to have stolen it.
