Quoted from Defense Security Asia, military observers in China proudly claim that the WS-10C engine called 'Taihang' has the same capabilities as the engine used by the US stealth aircraft, the F-22 Raptor.

According to a senior Chinese Communist Party official, Ren Yukun, "the J-20 fighter jet began conducting routine patrols in the South China Sea and East China Sea after deploying the locally made WS-10C engine". Not only that, China has also tested its newest locally made machine, the WS-15.

Quoted by Defense World, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Sunday about this test.

"When the J-20 gets the new engine, it will be a more powerful platform, thanks to increased super-cruise and super-maneuverability, in addition to its already excellent stealth and situational awareness capabilities," the expert claims. Previously, the J-20 used the Saturn "AL-31F" engine imported from Russia.

The announcement by Ren Yukun of China's advanced aircraft presence in the South China Sea and East China Sea where Taiwan is located comes shortly after the United States acknowledged a "collision" between an F-35 aircraft and a J-20 aircraft in the East China Sea.

US Air Force Commander General Kenneth Wilscbach in a lecture at the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies recently said that his F-35 fighter jet had collided at least once with a fighter jet, the J-20 "Mighty Dragon" in the East China Sea.

"It's too early to say what exactly China wants to do with the J-20, what we can observe is that it is a superiority aircraft. What we can see is that it flies well." "Recently, we had a collision where we (F-35s) were flying close to a J-20 aircraft in the East China Sea and we were relatively interested in the control and governance of the J-20 aircraft."

“We see the planes flown professionally but it's too early to decide what they want to do with the J-20, whether it's like the F-35 which is capable of multiple missions or more to the F-22 which is an advantage. aircraft with air-to-air capability. ground," said the US Air Force general, revealing the greatness of the J-20.

Citing Defense Security Asia, Chinese defense expert Song Zhongping said China will definitely deploy its modern aircraft to the field, especially at sea, when it learns of the presence of modern US fighter jets such as the F-22 Raptor and F-35 near its borders. "Our modern fighter jets must confront (American fighter jets) in an effort to maintain the sovereignty of our airspace," he said.
