New stealth fighter could defeat F-35, AVIC chief says
The country’s latest stealth fighter would be able to “finish off” a US F-35 in head-tohead combat, the chairman of its manufacturer said. The J-31, developed by the Shenyang subsidiary of Aviation Industry Corp of China, known as AVIC, will appeal to “cost conscious” global customers, AVIC Chairman Lin Zuomin said in a recent interview with State broadcaster CCTV. On being asked about the J-31’s combat ability compared to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Lin said: “The J-31 will finish it off in the sky.” The J-31 made its debut last month at the Zhuhai Air Show and is China’s version of the so-called fifth-generation fighters such as the F-35 that are less visible to infrared sensors and can cruise at supersonic speeds.
