Frosty Piss writes “The first clear pictures of what appears to be a Chinese stealth fighter prototype have been published online The photographs, published on several unofficial Chinese and foreign defense-related websites, appear to show a J-20 prototype making a high-speed taxi test — usually one of the last steps before an aircraft makes its first flight—according to experts on aviation and China’s military. Several experts said the prototype’s body appeared to borrow from the F-22 and other U.S. stealth aircraft. The U.S. cut funding for the F-22 in 2009 in favor of the F-35, a smaller, cheaper stealth fighter that made its first test flight in 2006 and is expected to be fully deployed by around 2014.”
