Business as usual continues in the the swamp known as Washington D C.



So we can't buy Boeing Super Hornets because they are using bought politicians to sabotage our aerospace industry. We probably won't buy F-35 because frankly we are cheap and want value for money spent as well as not liking single engine aircraft.

Wonder what these guys are asking for their fifth Gen fighter that has two engines?

With the induction of the Chengdu J-20, reportedly now called the J-20A, the PLAAF has become the second air force in the world to operate a 5th generation stealth fighter jet after the the United States, which operates Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptors or the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

The twin-engine fighter, built by Chengdu Aerospace Corporation, is a single seat stealth fighter designed for long-range fighter missions such as attacking support aircraft including tankers with PL-12 beyond visual range air-to-air missiles (BVRAAM).
