Chinese Fighter


China began mass production of fighters Chengdu J-10

China started mass production of its own fighters Chengdu J-10.

The Chinese aircraft Chengdu J-10 is an all-weather multi-purpose fighter, which began development in China in the middle of 90-s of the last century. Until now, the planes were produced exclusively by trial lots, and after finalizing them to the required operational parameters, the aircraft was decided to launch into mass production.

The first fighter Chengdu J-10 made its flight in 2009 year, but he could not enter mass production because of disagreements about the use of the power plant - some experts supported the use of Chinese equipment, but the Chinese Air Force command was set to use the well-proven Russian power installation.
