Gates: China's Hu confirms stealth jet test-flight !
Some analysts have said that the J-20 photos, if authentic, were a strong indicator that China was making faster-than-expected progress in developing a rival to Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor, the world's only operational stealth fighter designed to evade detection by radar.
BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Canards are visible in the shot above. China should operationally use J-20 in 2019. Possible a year earlier, to intercept in time stealth Russians in the sky. Look at the take off video. The maiden flight of the J-20 lasted 18 minutes and was conducted on January 11.
