Inside China’s new military ‘stealth jet’ with bizarre tailless design to ‘dodge radar’

CHINA has been working on a new military stealth jet with a sleek, tailless design that will be used to evade radar.

The concept for the sixth-generation fighter jet model was displayed during an airshow and aerospace fair in Guangdong province last week.

China’s aerospace industry has reportedly been working on a sixth-generation fighter jet that will be faster and more advanced than those already in its arsenal.

The fighter jet improves the low observability of the fighter, which allows it to dodge many types of radar The Defense Post.

Reduced drag and sustained high-speed flight and cruise reportedly improve the aircraft’s efficiency.

However, there seems to be a downside to not having a vertical rear.

Its absence could potentially make the jet more unstable, which could affect its maneuverability.

United States Air Combat Command chief Mark Kelly said earlier this year Beijing was already “on track” to build a sixth-generation fighter jet.

This aircraft is believed to compete with the US Air Force’s Next Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) fighter jet, the outlet reported.

During an Air, Space and Cyber ​​Conference in Washington DC this September, Kelly revealed that the US may have two versions of the NGAD to allow for long-range missions in the Indo-Pacific and short-range operations in Europe.

He said China’s aircraft concept is similar to America’s sixth-generation jet idea, which is why the US Air Force must produce and deploy the NGAD fighter “at least a month ahead of our competitors.”

Back in June, Minister Frank Kendall announced that the NGAD fighter program had entered its design and manufacturing development phase.

However, it will still take a few years for the program to reach initial operational readiness, Defense Messages reported.

The Air Force began early experimental prototyping in 2015.

However, “in 2015 the clock wasn’t really ticking; it’s about starting now,” Kendall said.

“We believe we will have capacity by the end of the decade.”

The design for China’s fighter jet has previously appeared in Chinese aviation white papers, which are open to the public.

A tailless, fighter-style airframe was spotted at a Chinese jet manufacturing facility in 2021, but it’s unclear if it was the same one on display at Guangdong’s Zhuhai Airshow.
