    You are welcome, Wurger.
    I have never seen this kind of 'honest' photo and article from China before.
    I hope it to be a good first step toward the freedom of the press in the future.

    Small point but that isn't a J10 its an Su30 which might explain why they don't mind the publicity. China and Russia are I understand having some disagreements about them.

    I understand that Japan is seeking to procure more F-2s as an interim before deciding on the next generation multirole fighter (i.e., F-35, Eurofighter or F-15 Stealth).

    Yes, it is, Matt308. You are researching it very well.
    UAV is also under development as it is cheaper than fighters.
    It crashed twice this year though:lol:
