Su-35 multirole fighter of the Russian Air Force.

After China launched the J-20 stealth fighter with a majestic performance at the Zhuhai air show and the country’s media praised the state-of-the-art aircraft, the Russian government said it was about to discuss

Russia plans to deliver the first batch of Su-35s to China by the end of this year, the remaining will be delivered within the next 3 years.

According to military analysts, China is still determined to buy Russia’s Su-35 because this aircraft possesses many important technologies that can contribute to perfecting their J-20 stealth fighter.

Although the J-20 has many features of a fifth-generation aircraft, Beijing has not yet been able to master the technology of manufacturing complex engines and electronic systems.

Beijing has not yet completed the domestic WS-10 engine for the J-11 and J1-6 fighters, so it will take a long time for them to successfully manufacture the WS-15 engine model for the J-20 fighter.

At the Zhuhai air show, the J-20s were suspected of using the AL-31FM2 engine of the Russian Su-27SM fighter.

The J-20 still has to use the Su-27SM engine imported from Russia.

Chinese military analysts believe that the J-20 fighter may be equipped with a domestic active phased array (AESA) radar called KLJ-5.

China’s only advantage is its optical-electronic and infrared target designation system.

Chinese media hailed the J-20 as a `masterpiece` of the country’s military aviation, able to defeat America’s modern stealth fighter F-22.
