China says its J-11D fighter jet is superior to America’s third-generation fighters

China’s new J-11D fighter jet no. D1101

The following is based on a translation from Chinese media:

Mil.huanqiu.com says according to US National Interest bimonthly, China conducted the maiden flight of its J-11D fighter jet, an upgraded version J-11B.

The J-11D incorporated the technologies of China’s J-16, which was delivered to the Chinese air force (PLAAF) in April 2014.

It uses the J-16’s Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, which has a larger range to enable it to intercept enemy fighter jets further away.

Moreover, the AESA radar can be datalinked to drones and other Chinese platforms for better awareness of the situation.

Some analysts believe that the J-11D is probably the Chinese version of Russia’s Su-35.

If so, American third-generation fighters such as the F-15C and the F/A-18E/F are no match for it, and the Chinese jet is superior.

According to a report in Russia Today, the J-11D uses more synthetic materials to enable it to carry more air-to-air missiles such as the PL-10 and the PL-15.

According to informed sources, the J-11D is powered by two Chinese-made WS-10A engines.

If such engines enable the J-11D to have performance similar to Russia’s Su-35, China has made great progress in developing its homegrown aircraft engines.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
