It's not very long, but it's one of the few official references to the defunct J/F-25 project.

 

For those of you who don't know, yes it was technically real, but unlike internet fanboy claims that it's some secret super fighter, it was never intended to enter service and never did, it was purely an R&D project to see just how much of a modern fighter design you could 3D print feasily and how costly it would be. (spoiler alert: with the tech of 3d printing at the time it was done, about 6 times as much as standard methods, that pretty much answered the question of "should we consider 3d printing entire airframes or try?") They also concluded that about 80% of the aircraft could be practically made in such a way.

My God, that's where you so called J25 came from......

It's a famous fake on Chinese internet years ago.

J-10B sexiest jiānator

 

I'm more interested in J-10B and JH-7B development news over other, newer fighters and bombers just because they're so damn sexy as fuck.

 

.....The J-10C, which is the variant that adds conformal fuel tanks and other improvements may be better overall, but damnit they make it look like they fed it a diet of a family sized bag of Cheetos 3 times a day with those damned fuel tumors.

Interesting Chinese UAV for flying at extremely low altitude (rus, Yuri Lyamin's blog)

 

   New UAV (cruise missile?) from China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

Quote

   The cruise altitude is declared from 1 to 6 meters, the flight duration is up to 1.5 hours, the maximum takeoff weight is 3000 kg and the maximum payload is up to 1000 kg. That the device flies with the use of so called screen effect.
