China Set to Launch Its First Stealth Aircraft (J-XX)

One possible image of the J-10.

As I alluded to in an earlier post about China getting an "aircraft carrier killer" missile, China is flexing its military muscle and it feels like it will lead to a confrontation with other military powers in the region at some point. China's latest military effort is an alleged stealth aircraft called the J-XX.

The latest buzz on Internet is that the China’s Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group is preparing to test its first stealth aircraft known to world as the J-XX.

According to enthusiasts living nearby, the aircraft has already done taxi run and top level officials are coming to the facility to witness the first flight.
