Engines and radar will be the biggest obstacle to development of China's fifth-generation fighter

Fifth Five friends make the future of Chinese fighter vision plan

According to Russian military Equality Network on July 25 reported that China is stepping up development of its fifth-generation fighter, but the engine and radar will be China's biggest obstacle encountered by the same time, new opportunities will affect the time of service.

Some analysts have pointed out that, due to the fifth-generation fighter technology integration into the J-XX is not too difficult, so China may produce 2020 to work with the U.S. F-22 或 match the new F-35 fighters. According to analysis, China will create about 300 new generation fighters.

China's two airline giants - Chengdu and Shenyang Aviation Industry Group, Aviation Group has developed two competing prototypes. Both fighters were using dual-engine and twin vertical tails of the design.

While the overall layout has been initially identified, but the Chinese people in the development of fifth generation fighter is facing a major problem is the engine. Although Russia had hoped to provide China with high-tech engine, but the Chinese are still made in the development of their own equipment, that is WS-10 (afterburning thrust of 15 tons) and WS-15 (the maximum thrust of 18 tons).

American International Assessment and Strategy Center Senior Fellow Richard Fisher noted that this year will be crucial WS-15 program year, if the project can not be a breakthrough, it would mean that China can not be made in the 2017-2019 years, equipment The fifth-generation fighter. Therefore, China may be forced into even greater efforts.

Chinese people's persistent air engine is making Russia into an awkward position. Esuhuoyi Pogosyan, general manager recently suggested that the Russian military-technical cooperation with the Federal Bureau of freezing to sell 100 RD-93 engines of the agreement, to prevent them from being installed that may affect the export of Chinese MiG -29 production JF-17 fighter aircraft. He also on the basis of China to the Soviet Union -27 reproducing the behavior of J-11B expressed dissatisfaction.

In addition, China in many cases, help to Ukraine to Russia has declined to provide access to proprietary technology. It is said that China has acquired a Soviet -33 Ukraine early prototype developed as the basis for their carrier-based J-15 fighter.
