Default first pics of China's 5th gen stealth fighter

several images have recently been making rounds in the chinese internet to much fanfare. the photos seem to be taken from the same airfield where the J10b and the chinese global hawk were first first leaked, probably by the same guy too.

It looks really long(yes, that's what she said), compared to say the F35. Kinda hard to judge from just these pics though.

It look as big as the F22 and the T50 to me... Quite unreal to see how big those plane are and how "invisible" they are xD

Looks a bit like the F-22, with the tail wings at like a 60 degree angle and the contours of the fuselage.
All stealth planes look pretty badass.

To be honest though, I can't see it being very useful to the PLAF, since to my knowledge the main point of stealth aircraft is to penetrate enemy air defenses to hit high-value targets. The US, with a massive navy and over 800 overseas bases, is in a better position to make use of that kind of technology.

So is China planning a pre-emptive strike on someone?

Ahhhww f**k! I got ninja-ed by fludbud. I was about to post this thread when I saw this one already up.

I was wondering when were the Chinese going to show their own 5th generation fighter. Well... "showing" would be a relative term since these photos are not official.

It does look stealthy but honestly... I have doubts this particular fighter will represent any serious threat to other countries air defences. But then again this is a prototype... information resulting from its testing will prolly lead to a second prototype that could pose a more serious competition.

The Chinese need to hurry 'though, The Russians have been pretty much going non-stop with the testing of their T-50 (PAK-FA). For what I have read in Wiki (Quoting sources from defence news sites) it appears Russia and India want 200 for each and make an extra 600 for exportation with Vietnam being a possible first purchaser.

Also... found a comparable look between the F-22, T-50 and this new fighter (so far being called as the "J-20"):

China’s 5th Generation Fighter Exposed? - Defense-Update

Although I think that the model used there differs in some aspects with the actual prototype being shown in the photos so I don't know how much reliable it is.

EDIT: A few more photos of the new fighter here: http://tieba.baidu.com/f?z=964826912...%FE%D5%BD&pn=0
