Russian MiG-29K surpasses the capabilities of the Chinese fifth generation fighter J-31

The Chinese fifth-generation "super fighter" barely reached the level of the Russian MiG-29K.

The fifth-generation fighter J-31, or rather its deck-based version, turned out not only to be much worse than the Russian and American fifth generation fighters, but also with great difficulty reached the level of the MiG-29K fighter.

“In China, any information about the work on the new generation J-31 fighter was completely classified. We are talking about a carrier-based fighter, which is planned to equip the aircraft carriers of the PLA Navy. Available aircraft engines do not allow J-31 fighters to achieve acceptable takeoff and run distances. Another problem that was initially advertised, and then they simply stopped talking about it in China - low indicators of the ratio "combat radius - missile and bomb load." In this case, it should be noted that the Chinese J-31 is not yet particularly superior in its main characteristics to the Russian MiG-29K carrier-based fighter, which was developed more than 30 years ago. ", - about it сообщает Russian information and news resource "Military Review".

Pakistan was to become one of the largest buyers of Chinese J-31 fighters, however, carrier-based versions of these combat aircraft were to be used exclusively by China, which obviously indicates that today China has very serious problems with carrier-based aircraft.

“Let's remember China's criticism of Russian carrier-based MiGs. In China, Russian planes were actually doused with mud, however, it turned out that the "innovative" Chinese development was almost worse than the Russian "old man", - the analyst notes.

Experts believe that another Chinese fifth-generation fighter, which was originally predicted to dominate the Russian Su-57, left not far from this.

Everything has its time. This is bug fixing.
