The 5th-generation fighter entered service in 2017 as an answer to America’s F-22 Raptor. But even though it was built to counter the F-22, the two planes actually share some similarities, leading to speculation that China might have stolen data from the United States.

When compared with the F-35, the J-20 is considered to be faster and offers longer ranges. Later J-20 models also can supercruise, allowing them to fly at high speeds without the use of afterburners.
