Chinese military expert: J-20 stealth fighter may break Western monopoly

China’s J-20 stealth fighter could break the monopoly of Western countries on fourth-generation fighters, perhaps even exerting a bigger influence than the American F-22 Raptor, according to Chinese military expert Li Li in a CCTV interview.

A Reuters report argued that the J-20 would not be as influential as the F-22 Raptor, butLi disagrees. She said that although the F-22 Raptor is the first fourth-generation fightercommissioned in an air force, its performance is not satisfactory. Because the J-20 andRussia’s T-50 are set to break the Western monopoly, Li argued, the J-20 could have amore significant influence than its Western counterparts.

According to information from an electronics plant in Suzhou, the main screen of J-20 fighters can be controlled and adjusted through voice command. Wang Mingzhi, a Chinesemilitary expert, explained that some advanced fighters have enabled speech recognition, which helps pilots to concentrate on the battlefield. In addition, touch control is availableon some certain fighters, simplifying human-computer interaction.
