Stealth Race: China test flies Chengdu J-20 'Black Eagle'

"China could be more advanced than expected by our intelligence".

China officially admitted to having test-flight of a stealth fighter jet tech, J-20. Recognition was conveyed President Hu Jintao when receiving visitors from the United States (U.S.), Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

Trial was held in Chengdu on Tuesday afternoon, January 11, 2011, or a few hours before Hu's meeting with Gates in Beijing. "I asked directly to President Hu about it. He said that the test was no link with my visit and had planned a long time," Gates said as quoted by CNN.

"I believe in the words of President Hu, the test has nothing to do with my visit," continued Gates.

U.S. is seriously concerned over China's efforts to create sophisticated aircraft. During this time, just U.S. which succeeded in producing stealth fighter, most recently the F-22 Raptor.

Called stealth aircraft, because the jet flew it difficult monitored an able to avoid enemy radar and laser beams. Now, China wants to rival the U.S. aerospace technology capabilities. Russia also reportedly did not want to miss in designing stealth aircraft homemade.

Last weekend, before flying to Beijing, Gates was impressed with the ability and sincerity of China in making sophisticated fighter jets. "I think what we have seen is that they [China] could have been more advanced than expected by our intelligence in making the aircraft," said Gates.

For the observers, the trial J-20 ahead of Gates' visit to Beijing China has indeed been prepared. "That was planned, in expressing the power of classical performances," said China's military analysts, Richard Fisher. "They [China] want President Barack Obama and the new U.S. Congress to Hu Jintao - who will visit U.S. next week - as the next military super power leader, who demands to be met," said Fisher.

Last week, photos of J-20 has spread across the Internet and has appeared in English-language Chinese newspaper Global Times.

Among aerospace foreign observers, China's efforts to build a stealth fighter aircraft it is common knowledge. In 2009, the Air Force high-officials of China, He Weirong, told television station CCTV said it was immediately tested a fourth-generation fighter aircraft.

He was hoping that the stealth fighter made in China may operate in the next eight to ten years. (Umi)
