TheRegisteredOne @ Complain solved

You shouldn't stop, righteous communities would be more than happy to ban stolen material and chase out the thieves, and anybody with any shred of taste would see Enkeli's mod for the inconsistent hodgepodge piece of **** that it is. Modders with vision don't steal, and modders without vision don't make anything good, and that is plain for any intelligent audience to see.

TheRegisteredOne @ Is it really a 5th gen?

Without resorting to stereotyping Chinese scientists and engineers as brainwashed red communist drones with zero ability for invention and innovation, can anyone seriously doubt that the Chinese military industrial complex, spending twice as much money as the Russians can only come up with something after cutting corners and stealing tech?

I am just sick and tired of people (not you) on these internets who browse pictures of a non-western technology and say it is a copy/cross/love child of their favorite jet just because it has some stupidly common design features like *canards*, *LERX*, or *DSI* or that they are worthless without listing any actual evidence because of some stupid stereotype about some country or ideology.

TheRegisteredOne @ Is it really a 5th gen?

"Do you know most of China's Aviation tech is Reversed engineered?"

Does this even matter for this discussion? Never mind that, while you can claim that SAC is only good at reverse engineering with their Flanker derivatives. Can you seriously deny the progress CAC has made on their indigenous aircraft development?

Let's just address the common insinuations against CAC that comes up:

- "J-10 is a copy of the Lavi (or substitute any other delta canard)." Whether or not CAC received technical assistance from Israel, the J-10 is a clear continuation of the J-9, which is a delta canard fighter from 70s that got cancelled in favor of the J-8.

- "J-20 stealth is reverse engineered from F-117 shot down in Serbia." Yea, but official Chinese sources have already stated that F-117 stealth is outdated by the time it was shot down, and J-20 uses different technology.

- J-20 is a copy of the F-22/F-35. Even with the espionage allegations floating around. The fact is these aircrafts have different basic planforms. Delta wing vs Trapezoidal wing. Canards vs tailplane. The rest, angled fuselage, canted fail fins, frame-less canopy, internal weapon bays, are common stealth features. If stealth shaping has to be unique, then Japanese STD-X, Korean KF-X, and Indian AMCA concepts are all copies??!

TheRegisteredOne @ Is it really a 5th gen?

First of all, my comment was not addressed at you.

Possible fifth gen requirements:
1. Short take off
2. Super cruise
3. Stealth
4. Super maneuverability

Also possibly:
5. Advanced avionics
6. Multirole capability
7. Advanced networking.

Which one of these requirements has the J-20 clearly failed to demonstrate? This thread will not be a genuine discussion until these points are addressed with evidence backing it. Common grievances raised against the J-20:

- "Canards are not stealthy." Think of Canards as tailplanes in the front of the aircraft. I am not a specialist, so I differ to this report from Air Power Australia (which agrees with you on the inferiority of F-35) which argues that J-20 has excellent forward-aspect stealth: Ausairpower.net

- "J-20 doesn't have good avionics." I don't think anyone can make any conclusive assessments from just photos. However, from little of what we know. J-20's nose is shaped for AESA, it has EODAS, and possibly have MAWS and IRST. It also features glass cockpit, holographic HUD, Latest prototype also shows EOTS.

- "J-20 isn't maneuverable because it is big." It is about the same size as a flanker.

TheRegisteredOne @ Is it really a 5th gen?

All of this speculation and stereotyping is pointless and baseless. The PLAAF, like any competent air force, would not be backing a program it has no faith in. CAC is a capable developer that has already demonstrated its abilities going from 3rd-gen Mig-21s to JF-17 to 4th-gen+ J-10Bs in mere 2 decades. Does China, with the second largest military expenditure in the world both in absolute terms and adjusted for PPP, lack the resources, the manpower, or the funds to seriously develop a 5th gen fighter? Why would any institution spend years and millions developing secret prototypes without a viable goal in mind? Surely not just to leak kewl photos for you internet armchair aviation experts...

That article sources from "Sina Military Network", which is basically a blog, but then links to Want China Times, some other Taiwanese blog. Where did they get that 12 tonnes from? Closest guess is 6.5 tonnes load.

Just some wild internet guessing.

The sky says twilight, but the direction of the moon's crescent says day time. The crescent should be parallel to or facing towards the horizon, not away from it. This is both bad Photoshop and bad astronomy.

J-20 has canards and delta wing.

Kind of different.

TheRegisteredOne @ Chinese J-10 Fighter Jet

How can you call yourselves aircraft lovers if you didn't know that delta-canard is a common aircraft configuration.

The Israelis had the Lavi, the Russians had the Su-33, the Americans had the F-15STOL/MTD. Did they all copy each other?

The J-10 is based on the J-9, another Chinese delta canard from the 70s. Talk with facts instead of fan wank to your favorite good guy plane.

You are incorrect, the system used is called NOTAR. It uses an internal fan to produce a jet that pushes air the same way a tail rotor does. The makers of this mod even mentions this: Moddb.com

No, Overcharge. Increases defense fire rate. Players can use their shield generators to either improve armour of their buildings via shield, or improve the firing rate of their defenses with overcharge.

TheRegisteredOne @ Almost all units added by TA:Escalation

There is the Manticore, Jammer Towers, Resource Generators, Advanced Storages, UW Resource units, Floating plasma cannons, Hover Carriers. Geo Upgrades. And various changes to all units in T1 and T2. But T1 and T2 factories are already overcrowded in OTA. If any mod adds a lot of T1 and T2 units, it is probably unbalanced. TA:Esc balance is determined by multiplayer tests and feedback from frequent games on game ranger.
