Not sure what you're speculating about.

Me too !??  :o ::)

IMO the one on top is difficult to use (does it have the same scale ??), since it seems only to have scaled the nozzle diameters to the same size.

On the other side that's not a real problem since - even if we still don't have clear shots of the AB-arrangement like flameholder and so on - I'm convinced that CAC once again turned to Saturn to use an AL-31FN vesion.

That's the idea!
We assume that both aircrafts have Russian engines such as Al-31.
The J-20 truly has a great size.

Bad choice of pictures lead to bad assumptions. Are the exhausts both open to the same angle?


We've been over this before, I see nothing interesting or useful in your pictures to add to the previous calculations done.

Hold on now, that second picture is great.
It shows 2002, the second prototype.  Which means you can now claim that there are two flying J-20s and actually be credible when you do so.

Sean was alluding to the overheated "two prototypes" discussions when the first prototype was unveiled.

Nothing special. B)
The key to any great story not is who or what, when or where, but why

Whenever I see J-20 videos I can't help but wonder if the residents know what a blue sky looks like.

Part of it has something to do with air pollution but the climate in Chengdu is mostly responsible for the foggy weather.
