The F-35 Stealth Fighter Jet is Cheaper Than the Chinese J-20
BEIJING, (BM) – The Chinese media have concluded that mass production American fighter F-35 led to the fact that the Chinese J-20 is now the more expensive fifth generation aircraft, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
Recall that in China believe that today only the J-20 is the only competitor in the field of technologies implemented by the said US aircraft.
It is noted that in connection with the implementation of a new contract for several hundred F-35A and F-35B aircraft price of US generating capacity will decline to 70 million ( “and even less”) dollars per unit.
It is much cheaper than J-20, which says the following: even if China decides to come up with a new generation of fighter aircraft in the international market, then American competitors will be a significant advantage in terms of price parameters.
“J-20 began to lose an American fighter for the price, it just became more expensive” said in China.
It does not say which country of the world the Chinese could offer to purchase J-20. In any case, the one who would have the desire to buy a Chinese J-20 is unlikely to enter on the sale of its American market the F-35.
The weekly section of the Chinese TV “Military Analysis” said that China “should focus on the domestic market, but at the same time looking for opportunities to make a fighter J-20 is cheaper.” At the same time it added that combat aircraft “does not lose its effectiveness.”
Earlier, the Chinese experts offer the option to purchase more Russian Su-57 – “to explore the technology.”
