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 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)
