PHOTO: China's first stealth fighter jet

China's state media published pictures Wednesday that appear to show a prototype of the country's first stealth fighter jet.

The move bolsters experts' claims that China's military aviation program is taking flight faster than expected.

The photographs show what appears to be a future J-20 fighter conducting taxi tests on a runway at the Chengdu Aircraft Design Institute's airfield in southwestern China, according to an Associated Press report Wednesday.

Analysis of the images shows the jet to be larger than either the Russian or U.S. stealth planes, likely allowing it fly farther and carry heavier weaponry. That could call into question the U.S. decision to cut funding for its own stealth jet, the F22.

Does not look like a stealth aircraft at all. All the curves and orthingrophic shapes that deflect radar arent there and then the exhaust panels are much much to large which leave. Huge thermal signature. For a stealth aircraft its not a very good one.

Don't think its good news that China has stealth technology especially as it looks like it may be a long distance bomber, heads up!!

Wow, so now there are three countries with stealth technology...But China (yeah, neither Russia is) is not a brightest example of a democratic country - seem to me like a big threat for other countries.

And secondly - shows us the scientific and technological power of China.
