Chinese stealth fighter spied again

Here in the US we have all sorts of high-tech weapons systems and some of the coolest are the stealth aircraft that the Air Force flies. The most advanced of the aircraft is the Raptor, which is one of the best performing aircraft in the world. The Raptor program has been cancelled, but development of new stealth aircraft to combat the Raptor and other US aircraft is underway around the world.

China has taken the first flight in its J-20 stealth aircraft. The J-20 is said to be larger than the Raptor and assumed to be less agile and not as fast by comparison. However, the J-20 is expected to be able to carry more weapons and more fuel. Something that the larger size may point to is a dual role nature of the J-20 as a fighter and bomber whereas the Raptor is strictly air superiority.

The J-20 has been photographed by some brave tipsters in china a lot over the last few months as it conducted taxi tests on the ground. I would hate to think what would happen to people caught taking spy shots of a Chinese aircraft in China. Apparently, the aircraft has now taken its first flight. US military officials think that the aircraft is still a long way from operational status at this point.
