(ORDO NEWS) — China has presented a possible look for a promising next-generation carrier-based fighter. Earlier, Beijing began flight tests of a new stealth aircraft based on the Shenyang FC-31.
Chinese aircraft carriers can get a unique aviation system – the first sixth-generation carrier-based fighter in history. In any case, such a conclusion can be drawn on the basis of the animation posted on the Web.
According to the Dambiev telegram channel, the aircraft is being created by specialists from the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC).
His alleged appearance was shown in the announcement of the release of the program “National Defense Science and Industry”, aired on the Chinese television channel CCTV7.
Recall that now the PRC is testing a fifth-generation carrier-based fighter, sometimes referred to in the press as the J-35.
The base for the aircraft was the Shenyang FC-31, which made its first flight in 2012. Like its predecessor, the J-35 has two engines and air intakes similar to those we see on the American F-35.
The aircraft is to be included in the aviation group of the newest Chinese aircraft carrier Type 003, which is at the final stage of construction.
