We knew about the Chengdu J-20—China's fifth generation stealth fighter. As it turns out, it's not the only one. According to China Defense Blog, this is the J-21/J31. It looks even more like the F-22 Raptor than the Chengdu.

China Defense Blog says that this new plane is being developed by tChina's 601 Aircraft Design Institute/Shenyang Aircraft Corporation. It appears to be the very first flying prototype, serial 001.

As if we didn't have enough problems with China developing one stealth plane, now they have two in the works. And in a quite advanced state, according to these photos. [CDB and CDB]

And now the Americans go, "but we have better planes", totally missing that China owns thousands of Billions in US state bonds thus selling 500 billion of those on the open market would basically bankrupt the US over night. So yeah, the F35 is better but in a dogfight the Chinese plane wins as the USF cant afford to fuel their F35's up. xD
