Much speculation abounds about the Chinese Chengdu J-20 being a Mig 1.44 in stealth clothing
What are your thoughts?

Probably much of a copy of the MiG but with some alterations to make it a tad more stealthy.

Contrary to popular myth ... the Chinese and Russians actually have quite a lot of co-operation ..... 

Just one example is the AK-47 .... You can take a Chinese AK and an original Russian AK ... the parts are 100% interchangeable. 

Here's a 'hybrid' AK used by my bodyguard in ******** .... (astute poople can recognise the uniform ... )..... I'm the good looking guy in the middle !!!

Must be some african country for sure, coz where else can one walk around with an AK in their hands with no one giving a fuzz?

I don't see any spare mags on that guy tho, and as someone who knows a crapton about guns that would have me concerned.

The photo was taken just before we set off for another Govt meeting, we were in our 'safe compound' and his 'support gear' was in the Merc SUV ... he sits in front with the driver while we sit in the rear ...

That AK is loaded and ready for action, as are the others in the other cars of the 'cade'.

Hybrid .... note the wood stock and underbarrel ... they are Russian while the metal 'rifle' is chinese. When Chinese supplied - they have folding metal stock and hard underbarrel. The guys like mine - are allowed to modify by swapping out with Russian parts such as the wood.

Anyway ... it was just to illustrate China and Russia are not always the big enemies Western Media make out.

I always tended to think it was more of the opposite, them being allies to fight the western world together should things go south. Either way, not a big fan of either country, tho the chinese make good food and the russians make decent (tho sometimes ugly) guns.
