The Tu4 was a reversed engineered B29,but was not as well made as the steels used by the Russians were of inferior quality, which resulted in a very much heavier craft that did not offer the same performance. The Tu144 Charger was a superficial and faster copy of the Concorde but had nowhere near the sophistication of that plane, and that is why it spent the majority of it's short life flying mail internally in the USSR. It was not Marco (not Marko) Polo who said "let China sleep" but Napoleon, and to finish his quote "but when she awakes Europe beware". One, I think, should substitute "World" for "Europe".

China has over 1.5 billion people. They are bounded by numbers alone to have more "genius" than us. In engineering "design follows function". That is why all airliners look alike and why stealth jet fighters look alike. The difference will be in details. The details will determine performance and capabilities. Augmented to that will be pilot training and his "enthusiasm". Marko Polo was said "Let China sleep." I believe the next war will be with the radical Muslim nations. I'd want the Chinese on our side.

To a certain point, what you say makes sense, but in a case like this, it's obvious there was no design creativity at work here.

Chinese have its F35: Project 310 by ShengYang ...

espinage in the Aircraft industry is nothing new. You only have to look at The Tu-4 and the B-29, Or the Tu-144 and the Concorde.Aircraft designers are notorious for coping what other contries have.

Are the Chinese that bad at designing aircraft that they have to steal American designs? Stupid commies know it too! This makes me laugh!
|Steven, 17.04.2012 02:05|
Larry, China has been accused and is known to have commited cyber-warfare acts against the united states. Also, who do u think works on our planes and other tech when they are sent here from China, get degrees in our colleges, and then work on our most classified tech while leaking that data to China?
|Steve, 19.01.2012 19:51|
when will other Chinese aircraft like the J-10, JL-8, J-11, L-15, JJ-7, JL-9 and J-15 be added?

nobody can say this design is not nice, it is proud of China, we can do better..
|hangarstuff, e-mail, 13.10.2011 03:07|
All of you who accuse the Chinese of "stealing" the technology are showing your ignorance. Function dictates form and design. Titlest didn't "steal" the dimples on a golf ball from the other manufactures- it just works. Grow up and put your petty prejudices to bed.
|Frank, 20.09.2011 16:28|
Wow! It's like an F 22! Stolen western tecnology!!
|rafael, e-mail, 19.09.2011 22:58|
esse protótipo chines deve ter uma agilidade incrível !
|lucas gustavo boaventura, e-mail, 03.09.2011 18:56|
só tem esse da chengdu?
|Ordinatio, e-mail, 30.08.2011 01:05|
Diverterless Supersonic Inlet: Nice!
F-35 looks cooler so we win.

Where's the "8 1" in the red star in the side view?
|Andy Woo, e-mail, 27.07.2011 07:03|
Don't tell me when you solve the gravity problems you would not comply with Newton's theory .At least these stealthaircrafts we know also desinged with RCS theory.So there is no steal'talking. you can't judge them by looking resemble.
|bobby tom, e-mail, 26.07.2011 03:02|
Any 3 views on this aircraft?
|ronei albert, e-mail, 20.06.2011 21:42|
|Bill, 10.05.2011 20:51|
it wasn't stolen...Obama gave them the plans to the F-22 then proceeded to cancel our orders.
|Sravps, e-mail, 07.05.2011 18:32|
Can someone tell me why the China section of this site is so incomplete? I have an interesting database in my head about chinese aircrafts, maybe I could help updating this.
|P. Hesse, e-mail, 06.05.2011 17:54|
This plane is full of western (USA) designs, that were undoubtedly ripped off.
|Barry, 31.03.2011 18:28|
Between the first flight and a fully operational, fully functioning 5th generation fighter there is an awfull lot of work to be done. I wish them well but have a look at the time frame of the FA22, the F35, the Su33/35 and even the Typhoon and they are manufactured by people who know what they are doing and then think what the Chinese with less experience have to do.
|jordanian, e-mail, 13.03.2011 10:15|
good job for the chinese
|lucas boaventura, e-mail, 10.03.2011 19:46|
devemos nos preocupar pois não comfio muito no F/A-22 Raptor
e também queria ver mais chengdu's
|aldol, e-mail, 08.03.2011 21:14|
if it works as good as the rest of the Chinese machinery we have got nothing to worry
|Mark Brannan, e-mail, 28.02.2011 21:45|
It's probably really heavy with all of that LEAD PAINT!!! But seriously, what an obvious ripoff of AMERICAN technology! Remember when the Clintons were getting so cozy with the Chinese?? Hmmmm, makes ya wonder.
|Kadesh, 16.02.2011 19:22|
Looks like a Russian MiG .44 (.144?)
|Aero99, 13.02.2011 23:53|
Another great Chengdu aircraft is the J-10
|Aero99, 13.02.2011 23:51|
There are much more Chengdu aircraft and I would like to learn more about this aircraft.
|Aero99, e-mail, 12.02.2011 18:31|
Although i must say it is a beautiful aircraft and it will probably go down in history
|Aero99, e-mail, 12.02.2011 18:29|
just to make it clear, it is said that the chinese stole the ideas for this aircraft from the Americans and Russians
|James P. Hester, e-mail, 11.02.2011 02:13|
Yes, does it come fully assembled and with all parts included? JPH
