pattern looks Russian but the paint type looks a lot like this http://www.f-16.net/g3/var/resizes/f-16-photos/album41/album40/aau.jpg?m=1370894664 rather than http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-TvugnPu0vPk/UU3OnqvnhuI/AAAAAAAAvmM/ojxjCbrgEw8/s1600/2013_CF6_Paint_00392PR_1269967624_4482.jpg
the j-20 paint job is superior because it combines high level stealth paint and can combine it with camouflage that f-35 has a lot of reflective painting schemes and even if it had none, has no camouflage pattern the PAKFA is a normal glossy paint scheme favored by the Russian military because it looks nicer in air shows.

lol what a flip flopper. first you agree with Mr. Chinabot's post doubting they were flare ejectors, and after a neutral person proved both of you wrong, then you switch your position lol.
? Err read my reply above #112, I did say there was possibility of them being flare ejectors, and I said I wasn't sure if they were flare ejectors. That's pretty different to Byoin or Spudman's posts saying like they definitely believed those topside things weren't or were flare ejectors. The entire point of that post (of mine) was to flipflop and say "it might be or it might not be," so I suppose you're right in that regard.
reminds me a lot about the claims of the J-20 not being the same size as the Flanker until Quantum and a bunch of others showed that they were the same, using the same exact sattelite image the naysayers used
I'm not sure what you're referring to here, I might not have followed that discussion too closely. I consider the length discussion to have been settled a few years back.

its like pakfa and the sducts, it will never be settled. even the j-10s length is underdispute. tons of fanboys claiming it is the same as the f-16 like your friend above

ok Jo Asukura, I don't know why Russian posters keep coming here dismissing Chinese aircraft. A lot of Chinese and non-Chinese like Blitzo enjoy normal conversation and news here and we care about facts the J-20 is only slightly longer than f-22. it just LOOKS longer because the f-22 has a huge reflective tail. If it had a smaller tail like the j-20, it would also Look long. for example https://s13.postimg.org/s31w59o0n/f_22.jpg the longest and largest aircraft are always Russian. the PAKFA is longer and bigger than the j-20 and the f-22. especially because of its tandem bays.
please leave my other account out of this, that one is just dedicated to talking about s-ducks. and that is a horrible photoshop. no one here thinks the j-20 is as long as the f-22. well except you

Mhmm, okay then. I'm not sure why J-10s length would be under dispute or why either side would be interested in disputing for or against it in the first place, but I suppose anything can happen here.

yeah, i agree it really shouldn't be that interesting to dispute. but for some reason Chinabots like deino, foxmulder and byoin and Russia stronk like JSR and KGB bust a nut when their favorite aircraft is called out for being too long or too short, or too straight or too curved. you don't see the America #1 or France est Grande crowd caring much about it. probably some 3rd world mentality about wanting to be close to western sizes.

I think every crowd has their own triggers that can be abused or lionized. The good thing about this forum is it brings together lots of people following various different military aviation nations to share info that they may not be able to see, but it also causes the opportunity for a lot of mutual trolling, and there are always a few people who seem to get a kick out of it.

For what I have seen 'Murica are ecqually peculiarly sensitive over some other topics, expecially when it come to their Technology is God mindset. They usually think as an example that Air combat shift directly from close dogfight with guns (see F-16) to head on BVR engagement at hundreds of km distance (a la F-14/phoenix: 100% miss in US service) and generally they think that the only solution of any problem is to constantly pour heavy amount of new hi-tech gizmos, that would regularly get available just ten years from now... Every one has its own sensibility to certain argunents : so as an another example, let's try to talk about European projects without citing my own nation also and you would receive a quite angry reply from my parts...

You are aware of the history of the term 3rd world ? Apparently not. There was the 2 superpowers USSR and USSA and then the 3rd world.

there is a chinese saying that dates back all the way back to the legendary Drukpa Kunley: "the longer the merrier"

very useful graphic! didn't realize the j-20 and mig 1.44 sizes were so similar. do one for the 4th gen with the j-10, mig-29 and f-16

these are not properly scaled and comes from a brazilian website. j-20 is closer to 20m, pakfa closer to 22

J-10 is not same size as F-16. There was pics of J-10 parked next to Rafale at Maks airshow.

Here is a rough comparison. Length is for J-10A. J-10B/C are lightly shorter from what I heard. [ATTACH=CONFIG]249191[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]249192[/ATTACH]

great thanks. good work on finding all the accurate measurements on the j-10 and j-20. always proving the bots wrong!
