Chinese J-10B fighter pics

For anyone curious here are some pics of the new Chinese fighter plane

It looks kinda like an F-16. I wonder if the Chinese have any stealth technology out there yet.

I don’t think they have stealth tech yet but if they can, they’ll steal it. I don’t think they are at the level to develop it themselves (yet) because of all the sunk costs necessary for those specific industries. It’s cheaper for them to pay for the secrets than develop the technology themselves.

I’m on the defense industry daily mailing list and they just sent out this article on China’s increased military budget:
