    Chinese Nanchang J-12 light fighter

    How about a thread on the J-12 ? I noticed that there was none ! It is a jet that I like and I will try to collect in this thread some interesting things about it.

    Evaluating Chinese Military Capabilities

    As someone who followed the various published Western assessments of Soviet Military Power avidly throughout the Cold War I am all too aware of the risks in such evaluation. As various Chinese capabilities are asserted regularly in a range of threads I think it would be timely to discuss the...

    Chinese Air to Air Missiles

    Does anyone have a single bit of info about Chinese AAMs? After a lot of research, the info i found is very little and not good enough to make an actual comparison with Russian, American or European missiles. To say the information is lackluster, would be a huge understatement. I understand...

    Chinese J-6 VTOL project

    In 1968 the China attempted to develop a VTOL fighter, so engineers came up with adding lift fans to the J-6 to finish it by 1971. Lack of success and the death of some of the CCP leadership gets the project canceled in 1972. Slightly more sane proposal

    Chinese Stealth bomber program - XAC H-X (H-20)

    That has some interesting implications for what H-20 may end up looking like... It'll sure be interesting if B-21 and H-20 both come out with similar planform Where'd you find that picture from btw?

    Project 0901 China's strategic powered hypersonic research programme

    Hi everybody, It seemed we did not have any clearly identifiable thread on this subject yet. Now we do. Project 0901 is a national endeavor -- not to be confused with project 0902 (Fusion) -- and seems to broadly cover anything related to high-speed scramjet research for the purpose of flying...

    Chinese Tupolev Tu-2 & Tu-4 night fighters

    Hi all, I just finished reading the book "The Black Bats" by Chris Pocock, which describes the Taiwanese spy flights over mainland China from 1949. The PLA jet fighters were too fast to intercept the Taiwanese P2V Neptunes by night, so they developed a nightfighter version of their "slow"...

    Chinese Y-7 AWACS and KJ-600 AWACS

    Just "found" at XAC ... not sure if a Y-7-derivate or a completely new type, but anyway most likely something new from China again. Deino China naval AEW (most likely) spotted

    The early MiG's in China - MiG-9, MiG-15 and MiG-15UTI

    Deino once again with a silly or maybe even stupid question … this time regarding on old type (in fact not my personal darling … I don’t like these old-barrel-type fighters!), the MiG-15 and MiG-15UTI in China. Fact is that that in early 1950, with China entering the war in Koreas, MANY...
