China's J-20 Stealth Fighter Is About to Become Even More Deadly

A lead engineer of China’s J-20 super maneuverable stealth fighter – hailed as the new bulwark against the US grabbing air superiority in the South China Sea – has told The People’s Daily his team will make further modifications to the plane’s engine, coating and weapon bay.

The J-20 entered into service in 2017 as China’s “4.5th generation” indigenous fighter.
