Chinese J-20 Stealth Jets Decades Ahead Of Any Indian Aircraft Including Rafale Jets

Published

Chinese experts have claimed that Indian, Russian, French and US-origin weapons are no match against Chinese weapons especially the J-20 stealth fighter jet which is decades ahead of any French or Russian jets that India operates.

China’s state-run, Global Times (GT) not only ridiculed Indian but also Russian, French and US-origin weapons and claimed that their domestically manufactured weapons were better than the imported ones.

Chinese experts took a dig at Indian Air force since India has been using the US-made CH-47 Chinook transport helicopters to carry howitzers to the frontline and the AH-64 Apache attack helicopters for anti-tank missions.

Weighting its own superiority over India’s airforce capabilities, the GT wrote – “Chinese military experts said these weapons and equipment are no match for their Chinese counterparts like the PCL-181 and PLZ-05 self-propelled howitzers, Z-10 attack helicopters, and Type 15 and Type 99A tanks, as the capabilities of Chinese weaponry in terms of firepower, mobility, and tactics are far superior, and more so in high-altitude regions.”

However, Indian experts believe that “the Chinese airforce, in all probability, was never built around India as the main threat.”

“Most of its famed bases are located far too inland to serve any practical purpose for an attack on India, let alone defending its border bases. To add to the problem, the few bases that the PLAAF has, which concerns India, are not mutually supportive – if one is attacked, the other does not come in its defence – something the IAF bases enjoy. The distance between Hotan and its nearest support, Kashgar, is approx 400-500 km, well beyond the supporting distance with present-day technology,” writes retired Wing Commander Amit Ranjan Giri.

Adding further to the criticism, the Chinese daily called Russian-made Mig-29s, Su-30s, French-made Mirage 2000 jets and joint Anglo-French Jaguar attack aircraft as popular products on the international market which are no match for China’s domestically developed J-10C and J-16 fighter jets.

It also mentioned that Chinese analysts believe that the country’s J-20 stealth fighter jet has a “generational advantage over Indian aircraft, a gap that cannot be fulfilled by any means.”

China that majorly uses domestic weapons questions India’s internationally imported arsenal and believes that “Indian troops use weapons made from all over the world, which means a high logistical support cost and incompatibility between systems”.

Previously, China had warned India of the anti-China sentiment that has penetrated the Indian masses. As reported by EurAsian Times, the GT had stated – If the boiling nationalist sentiment continues unchecked in India, it may lead to serious consequences, which would only weaken the market’s financial appeal to the outside world, making it easier it to be replaced with other Southeast Asian nation.
