Thanks for the interesting article.

I think it probable that Asia will manifest some new if not onpar designs in combat aircraft.



China – Shenyang J-XX Stealth Fighter / Flight Concept

The signs have been there for some time. In 1997, the US Office of Naval Intelligence stated their conviction that a 4th generation stealth fighter was under development in China. Then in December, 2008, the highly respected "Jane's All the World's Aircraft" went on record saying that China has been developing a “heavyweight” stealth fighter for many years.

In 2005, a former Northrup B2 design engineer was arrested for selling highly classified data about the B-2 and its stealth design to China. Noshir Gowadia has admitted to the charges and so there is no question that the propulsion system and stealth design features of the B-2 have been studied intensively by those designing fighters and bombers for China's People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF).

T Bird....

With China and India now fielding advanced computers,
its likely breakthru concepts will emerge with research.

wether they are capable to build is another question.
