Stealth fighter unveiled at air show
China officially unveiled its ambitious stealth aircraft project by showing a fifthgeneration fighter jet at the country’s largest defense exhibition, a move observers say was intended to attract foreign buyers.
The twin-engine, radar-dodging J-31 made its public debut on Tuesday at the opening of the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, known as Air show China, in Zhuhai.
“The J-31 Gyrfalcon is able to compete with any other aircraft of its kind, “Li Yuhai, deputy general manager of the Aviation Industry Corp of China, the country’s leading plane maker, said at a news conference in Zhuhai, Guangdong province. (Photo 4)
