The Chengdu J-20 is a stealth, twinjet, fifth-generation fighter aircraft developed by China's Chengdu Aerospace Corporation for the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). The J-20 made its first flight on 11 January 2011, and entered initial operational capability phase in March 2017, according to state media. Observers are not able to reach a consensus on J-20's primary role. Based on initial photographs with focus on the aircraft's size, early speculations referred to the J-20 as an F-111 equivalent with little to no air-to-air ability. Others saw the J-20 as a potential air superiority fighter once appropriate engines become available. More recent speculations refer to the J-20 as an air-to-air fighter with an emphasis on forward stealth, high-speed aerodynamics, range, and adequate agility. The J-20 could threaten vulnerable tankers and ISR/C2 platforms, depriving Washington of radar coverage and strike range. There is some speculation that the compromise of the F-35 program may have helped in the development of the J-20.

Chengdu J-20 Black Eagle

Designed as a fifth generation stealth fighter, comparable to the F-22, the J-20 was first flown on January 11th, 2011. The J-20 is radically more advanced than any previous chinese design, using state-of-the-art stealth technology, supercruise capabaility and a modern fly-by-wire control system. Speculation exists that some of this technology may have been reverse-engineered from an F-117 that was downed over Serbia in 1999. Much larger than the F-22, the J-20 is most likely intended for a long-range intercept role with the ability to destroy enemy AWACS and Electronic Warfare aircraft from afar. It is anticipated that the aircraft may reach operational status by 2018.
