EDITOR AVIATION WEEK BENEFITS DESIGN CALLED J-31 COMPARED WITH F-35

According to media reports, on Wednesday, the layout of the second type of Chinese stealth fighter J-31 made the first flight from the airfield industrial Shenyang Aircraft Corporation (SAC, Liaoning Province). The flight lasted about 11 minutes.
 
English Aviation Combat Aircraft Monthly magazine said that this layout resettled Russian engines with «average thrust,» but in the future will be equipped with Chinese WS-13 turbofans.
 
Past deputy editor of the magazine Aviation Aviation World Weekly Bai Wei (Bai Wei) said that, as the South American F-22 and F-35 fighter jets Chinese J-20 and J-31 will complement each other. J-31 may change or supplement carrier-based fighter J-15, he added. «Judging by the general two-wheel nose landing gear and a double vertical tail large area that is incremented vertical stability of the aircraft, this fighter will probably be used on aircraft carriers,» said Wei. In his view, these fighters can be exported.
 
President of AVIC Lin Zuomin (Lin Zuoming) and general manager Li Yuhay (Li Yuhai) visited the Center SAC aircraft design and thanked employees for «their vital contribution.»
 
Editor of the South American aerospace magazine Aviation Week Svitmen Bill (Bill Sweetman) wrote in his blog that the J-31 is relieved of the design constraints of the South American F-35, which impose requirements for short takeoff and vertical landing variant F-35B STOVL, which limited the amount of dimensions and internal weapons bays on all versions of the aircraft. «J-31 engines mounted in the rear of the aircraft for the main landing gear, allowing designers to increment the size and scope of internal compartments weapons … Have you ever thought what it was to be the F-35 without proper design constraints? Now we have a living, physical example, but, unfortunately, this example is Chinese, «he wrote on his blog.
