US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Russian-made aircraft was called one of the reasons for China’s superiority over the US Air Force. It’s about the Su-35.
This conclusion was reached by the authors of the publication Military Watch.
The translation of their material is provided by Rossiyskaya Gazeta. It is noted that the advantage of the Chinese air force over the US Air Force is also achieved through the use of its own aircraft – Chengdu J-20.
The authors of the text believe that the Chinese army continues to use Russian fighters because the country did not believe in the potential of the J-20. Yes, and the Su-35 is cheaper to operate, can carry more payload in terms of weapons and is characterized by good maneuverability.
Journalists recalled that both air-to-air missiles and cruise missiles can be used on a Russian airplane. It is the joint use of the Su-35 and Chengdu J-20 that makes the Chinese air fleet more versatile than the American.
