Images emerge of China’s second stealth jet fighter

By J. Michael Cole

 

A Chinese aerospace manufacturer on the weekend released high-resolution images of what could be China’s second stealth fighter.

 

CV32: Gotta love the Chinese nomenclature game. F-60, J-21 Snowy Owl, J-31 Falcon Eagle, etc, etc.

China Unveils Second Stealth Fighter

China's unveiling of a second low-observable (LO) or stealthy fighter, a Shenyang product possibly designated J-31, followed the same pattern as the revelation of the Chengdu J-20 at the end of 2010: Photos were leaked via the Internet on the eve of a U.S. defense secretary's visit to Beijing. The not-too-subtle message, as the U.S. follows through with its plans to shift air and naval forces to the Pacific region, is that China's own military modernization is not slowing down.
