（1）Big deal. So maybe China can compete or surpass the US. Who cares? US is a has been. China can never compete with india. The indians are far ahead of China. Just take a look at what the indians can do:
Can China ever compete with that??? Can the XXJ ever compete with that??? I didn't think so. I've given up. That we just can't compare with. india has won. *sigh*
Yes, a big difference between a normal human and superman is that....superman wears his underwear above his pants.
Amen to that brother but i am being a bit selfish here, is it possible for PAF to just skip the J-10B and go straight for Jxx aka J-20 5 to 6 years from now.
We need some advanced aircraft better then J-10, since PAK FA will be a tough challenge. Despite the obvious bias on this forum regarding F-22 being better then PAK FA (in the absence of any concrete information), the reality is that stealth is function of aircraft dynamic state (i.e. orientation, position and even structural deformations). Hence maneuverability is a must to avoid probability of detection in dense multistatic radar configurations. This is since aircraft itself or some other source (i.e. satellite) can detect spatial distribution of detecting sensors, many of whom will be mobile on the ground and on air. Advanced flight management software can optimize in real time to constantly suggest optimum flight state configuration to avoid detection and shooting down by AAMs. That means enhanced maneuverability is a must for enhanced survivability.
So Pakistan desperately needs something much better to keep source of evil such as india under control.
