Chengdu J-20 Uses US Technology

British newspaper The Guardian is reporting today, that the Chinese stealth fighter Chengdu J-20 may be built using US technology. Balkan military officials said China may have gleaned knowledge from a US F-117 Nighthawk that was shot down over Serbia in 1999.
“At the time, our intelligence reports told of Chinese agents crisscrossing the region where the F-117 disintegrated, buying up parts of the plane from local farmers,” said Admiral Davor Domazet-Loso, Croatia’s military chief of staff during the Kosovo war. “We believe the Chinese used those materials to gain an insight into secret stealth technologies and to reverse-engineer them.”

  1. It will still have “Made in China” stamped all over it and the F-117 (which the J-20 is getting most of its tech from) is first generation stealth while the B-2 is second gen and the F-22 and F-35 are third gen.

  2. I don’t have a problem with China using foreign technology with Aviation. Why not? Maybe we are friends. Why not help a friend out? I do have a problem with all the other goods. The copying of specific brands. Like fake apple ipods or fake jordans. That doesn’t seem right. But technology. That is just knowledge.
