Aviation News / The real purpose behind China's mysterious J-20 combat jet

The real purpose behind China's mysterious J-20 combat jet

In November, China debuted the Chengdu J-20, a large, stealthy jet that some have compared to the F-22 Raptor. But according to experts, the J-20 is not a fighter, not a dogfighter, not stealthy, and not at all like the F-22 or F-35.

Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australia Strategic Policy Institute, told Business Insider that the J-20 is a "fundamentally different sort of aircraft than the F-35."

Davis characterized the J-20 as "high-speed, long-range, not quite as stealthy (as US fifth-gen aircraft), but [the Chinese] clearly don't see that as important." According to Davis, the J-20 is "not a fighter, but an interceptor and a strike aircraft" that doesn't seek to contend with US jets in air-to-air battles.

Instead, "the Chinese are recognizing they can attack critical airborne support systems like AWACS (airborne early warning and control systems) and refueling planes so they can't do their job," Davis said. "If you can force the tankers back, then the F-35s and other platforms aren't sufficient because they can't reach their target."

Regards to all this is the new novelty of RB24 I got the 1090 filter

The first test install it with the radials and the reception levels were very low


In this second test remove the radials from the antenna the reception improved 100%


*This filter only works for ADSB

* VHF does not work and much less GPS   ; (

I'm looking forward to seeing what the data rate for individuals is on this new network, Iridium's current 2.4k bps is ridiculous in the extreme. While they have superior coverage, the poor data capabilities was why I bought a Thuraya satellite phone, instead of Iridium.
