    Talk about an F-22 rip off! Perhaps the Chinese had a hand in the design. From the side it sort of looks like a Raptor but more like the F-14 or the SU-29. But from the top jeez! It's a Raptor except for the engines. The Raptor has been in development almost as long as I've been alive and they just now bring out a copy? The Raptor is one of my favorite planes if not #1, so I'm a bit irritated when a copy comes out!

    All initial test flights are done at low speed with gear down.

    Specs are a copy of the Raptor as well. This plane features "supercruise" - super sonic flight without the use of afterburner, and stealth - very limited radar return.

    Looks more like Northrop's YF23 than an F22 Raptor.

    Christ...are we still in a useless arms race? Just give us enough shit to wipe out China after our economy collapses and we're set.
