A Second Chinese Stealth Jet, Again?

by John Reed on June 15, 2011

So, does this picture show China’s second J-20 stealth fighter or is it simply a mock up?

Just remember the fake Chinese stealth fighter picture (not the J-20) that emerged earlier this month.

The mock up shows it is being built and assembled in a different city thousands of kilometers away. Likely for public static display purpose at AVIC HQ (parent company of CAC).

From day one we know there are at least two ’2001′ J-20 prototypes with different engine nozzle colours.

Or "J-20" is just a project name with jillions of contractors and development companies throwing stuff at the wall until something sticks.

Might be a mock up used to train ground crews.

It's a J-20 you can tell by looking how far back those two vertical stabilizers are and you can also see the canards on the second jet.
