Bash the J-20 thread.

Recommended Posts

Here is an article on domestic engine development for the J-20.


There isn't too much of substance, alas, except the confirmation that the Chinese are working on domestically-produced engines for the J-20, and that jet engine design and production is, indeed, rather difficult.

Chinese jet engine development is an interesting case.  All other manufacturers of fighter jet engines (US, Russian, French, British) have been making jet engines since the dawn of jet propulsion in the 1940s.  China is having to build its expertise from the ground up.
