The Taiwanese press reports that, that the fifth generation J-20 stealth fighters of the Chinese Air Force flew at the minimum distance from Taiwan in recent years. According to some reports, PLA Air Force fighters flew from an airfield in the eastern part of the country, from which to the island of Taiwan about 500 km.
In the Chinese media, journalists call the Taiwanese authorities separatist and add, that the deployment and flight of the J-20 "was not only a demonstration of the growing power of the Chinese air force, but also the, which instills fear and warns separatists ".
also added, that "it is also a signal for the USA". This interpretation is used by the Global Times in its material..
Analysts say, that J-20 fighters have an advantage over all combat aircraft, available to Taipei. Any confrontation in the air will lead to the victory of the PLA Air Force over the enemy.
celebrated, what if the Chinese pilots are ordered to move towards Taiwan, then from the Jiuzhou airfield to the island 5th generation J-20 fighters will be able to fly in just 7-8 minutes.
At the same time, they will be able to attack targets even before, how will they find themselves in the affected area of air-to-air missiles.
This explains, why “invisible” were discovered. stated, that when patrolling over the Taiwan Strait, the J-20 "did not use their stealth capabilities, that is why the islands were discovered by air defense means ".
This is not the first time, when Chinese J-20s are detected by air defense systems or aviation of neighboring countries. So, a few months ago, a Su-30MKI aircraft of the Indian Air Force discovered a J-20 of the PLA Air Force near the border.
