      It's probably decent. If it's even remotely stealthy (so for our definitions a fair bit lower RCS than say a Super Hornet) and has a decent radar, avionics and weapons, then yeah, it's going to curbstomp anything 4th gen the Indians can throw at it.

        Explain to them that you don't do "body kits" on airframes, and it might just possibly be a little more complicated than they understand, and they're back to repeating the same old ignorant bullshit 24 hours later, every fricking time.
        The worst bit is they think they're so much smarter than the Indians or Chinese people who they denigrate. The reality is they're exactly the same degree of stupidity.

    Being detected on long-range search radar is not the same as being detected by fire control radar.
    Is it most likely shit? Yes.
    Can the F-22 and F-35 also be detected on search radar? Also yes.
    This is irrelevant in a real conflict.

    The ONLY evidence is the obvious attempt at stealth geometry. But based on everything that we can see we can infer that it was a failed 5th-gen project. Now, that’s not to say they’ve given up on it; quite the contrary, they’ve supposedly acquired them in some numbers and even if they’re not real gen 5 aircraft they’re at least an upgrade over their older planes. Keeping the factory and design group alive is a net positive for them because they can go through the process of learning / stealing and continuing towards the goal of making an actual 5th gen in the future.

    But don’t worry, they’re NEVER be a situation in which the J-20 goes up against the US. If it ever comes down to a shooting war, expect the PLAAF to be grounded safely in underground bunkers — they should be well aware of how badly the US overmatches them in air capability.

So they wont be able to do much then be active in the pacific defending against the missile spam and lobbying back their own salvos

    In regards to search radar. High-power search radar, if it detects a stealth plane at distance will only give you a general bearing and wide band of potential location. It knows something man-made is in a certain direction in a vague area of space going at a certain speed. Signal processing picks out the speck of return from all the background noise based on how fast it’s moving along with any other markers it’s been programmed to recognize, but that’ll all it gives you. That information is used to direct a more focused search — 3D / targeting radar is focused in that direction looking to firm up the contact if possible but it’ll struggle because 3D / targeting radar uses a much higher resolution wavelength which has a hard time illuminating stealth at the same distance a long-wavelength search radar can. Here, aircraft will be directed to search the area for the contacts — but with LPI radar in 5th gen (Low-Probability Intercept, basically stealth radar) anyone who’s also not 5th gen will get straight-up baby seal clubbed because they’ll be seen long before they have a hope of spotting the contacts. So while high-power, sensitive long-wavelength band search radars can detect stealth from a much further distance away it’s only limited as a tactical benefit.

      all these distinctions are moot because the J-20 is well known to operate with retroreflectors most of the time, same as we do with the F-22 and F-35. the chinese aren't stupid, they're gonna keep the damn things on anywhere near their borders or coastline. no one outside china is gonna know this thing's actual RCS unless and until it gets into a real shooting war

    I'm not a nerd or expert about what it means to be 5th gen, however I want to point out that the J20 has a radar cross-section of similar size as the SU57. By that I mean that J20 RCS is smaller than SU57 RCS but they are on the same order of magnitude.
    At least that's what I've been shown/told.

    If you consider SU57 to not be a true 5th gen because it's low observability, not true stealth like F22or F35, then you can say the same about the J20.

    J20 is meant to be used by the chinese as kind of a sniper, flying at high altitudes and engaging targets from as far away as possible.
    So the RCS being a bit shitty is not as crucial as it would be on other aircraft, so I'm not sure if to call it 5th gen or not.
    For simplicity's sake, it's not the end of the world if call it 5th instead of 4.5th Gen or 4.6th Gen.

        Actually there's multiple variants of the J-20. The guy you're talking to is probably comparing the J-20A to the Su-57. J-20A without stealthy inlets is still the most common version.

        The Russians sculpted the Su-57 for maximum stealth yet they failed to understand that exposed screws and fricking engines will defeat that to some degree.

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          At this point, it’s probably safe to assume that Russian military aviation industry is basically dead barring a miracle. Su-57 seems like it could be alright against 4th gen fighters, but looking at how fricking hard time they have making them in any considerable numbers… it also strongly implies that there are some pretty serious problems with the design, because they sure as hell didn’t originally intend to make such a ridiculous small fleet of them with the project budget.

          And yeah, F-35 was also a project plagued with issues but it pulled through and now the end result is a good fighter with reasonable unit cost. I don’t have the same confidence about Su-57.

            forgive me for being a quant and looking at things in quant terms, but so far I believe it works
            Russia had the GDP of Italy at the start of the war, before sanctions
            picture, if you will, how successful a SOLO Italian 4.5-5th gen fighter project can possibly be
            picture the production rate
            and that's BEFORE considering the effect of the Ukraine war

              It’s kind of easy to forget how Soviet Union had insane amounts of resources, both money and brains, for their weapons development.

              The Italy - Russia comparison isn’t entirely realistic because Russia still has some of that old talent base left for fighter design despite the brain drain (not saying that it’s the same guys anymore from Soviet era, but even Russians probably try to keep up a chain of knowledge transfer from one generation of engineers to next), while Italy has no experience on solo projects, but sure, there are limits on how far you can fuel your development on old fumes. It’s one thing to keep improving on Su-27, but making a proper paradigm leap from it is going to be pretty much impossible with their resources.

                nor could they build enough. every European fighter programme is a joint venture because it's impossible for anyone to go it alone now, future fighter tech is just too complex and expensive.
