China's J-20 Stealth Fighter With Its Air-To-Air Missile Has A Greater Range Over America's F-22 And F-35


Mark Episkopos, National Interest: China's J-20 Stealth Fighter Has One Big Advantage Over America's F-22 And F-35


Key point: The American F-22 and F-35 fighters are now equipped with the latest AIM 120-D missiles, but a massive range deficit remains nonetheless.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Air Force made waves at the 2018 Zhuhai Airshow with the latest showing of their flagship fifth-generation stealth fighter, the J-20.

As is common with airshow coverage, large swaths of the ensuing commentary focused on the J-20’s handling and maneuverability as it performed a series of rolls and a climb. But this elides what is perhaps the most significant aspect of the J-20’s Zhuhai showing: its weapons system.

During the performance, the J-20 opened its missile bay doors to reveal four PL-15 missiles accompanied by two PL-10 missiles on either side. The PL-15 is a long range air-to-air missile slated to enter service in 2018. Outfitted with an active electronically scanned radar and featuring a reported maximum range of up to 300 km, the PL-15’s impressive specifications place it in the ranks of the top air-to-air missiles along with the European Meteor missile and Russian K-37M.

WNU Editor: There are still a lot of unknowns on what are the capabilities of the J-20. But what is known is that China is determined to have a fighter that can strike targets before those targets can counter-strike.

As stated by Stanford Medical, It is really the SINGLE reason women in this country live 10 years more and weigh on average 19 kilos less than we do.

(And realistically, it has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret exercise and absolutely EVERYTHING around "HOW" they eat.)

P.S, I said "HOW", and not "WHAT"...
