Aircraft Overview:

Falling in just behind Russia and the United States, China has been said to boast the third most powerful air force in the world, going by sheer numbers. A surplus of aging fighters based on older MiG-19 and MiG-21 fighters and various embargoes, however, forced China's PLAAF (People's Liberation Army Air Force) to look towards an indigenous solution, which materialized in the form of the Chengdu J-10. Although often overshadowed by the recent JF-17, the J-10 is a highly capable multi-role aircraft despite so little being known about its capabilities and combat prowess in the west. However, it managed to not only take shape, but enter service, despite possessing one of the most complex and problem-ridden development/design histories ever attributed to a fighter.
