China’s New Fighter Jet Can’t Touch the US Planes It Rips Off

CHINA’S CHENGDU J-20 fighter jet, which made its public debut at China’s Zhuhai Airshow, cuts an imposing, even frightening, figure.  The supersonic, twin-engine fighter and attack aircraft packs advanced radar and sensor capabilities, with a 360-degree helmet display system that allows the pilot to see through the aircraft itself.

The J-20 technically counts as a fifth-generation fighter—it’s got the same sort of tech and capability of its contemporaries—but it lacks the breadth of know-how and technological innovation you see in American jets.
