In recent years, China has rapidly increased its military power and developed defense technologies. One of the main tasks of the Chinese military industry, repeatedly announced by the Chinese media – to develop and create its own fighter of the sixth generation. At the same time, Beijing is convinced that such a fighter can and should surpass all similar aircraft of the future. They even call the timing of the production of the fighter – by 2035.
As you know, Xi Jinping is a very ambitious ruler, and the longer he rules, the more the President of the People’s Republic of China wants to enter the history of modern China as a figure comparable to such political titans as Mao Tse-tung and Deng Xiaoping. Plans to build their own latest weapons fit well into Xi Jinping’s overall strategy to make China the number one world power.
But in order to create your own fighter – the invisible of the sixth generation is few ambitions and even the thousands-year history of the Chinese state in this case will not help. The main thing is the availability of technologies and resources for their implementation. But does China have them? This question is being asked today by many Western analysts.
Meanwhile, not so long ago, the Chinese aircraft manufacturer Shenyang Aircraft, announced the research of the structure and functions of the prospective fighter. Chris Osborne, author of the American magazine The National Interest, writes that the Chinese company clearly touches on in its research the areas underlying stealth aircraft design. One of them is the control of the thermal characteristics of the aircraft.
