    Oddly enough Tai-Fun or Divine Winds.
  3. It's just another one pipe wonder powered by a single Russky designed turbofan.

    As such I predict, that like the Starfighter, it will kill more pilots than enemies.
  4. The single engine/twin engine argument is as old as the hills, and each side is convinced that it is right. However I do remember a photograph years ago titled "The best use of two engines". It was a picture of two F16s.

  5. Yes, yes, yes, all very well but where are the photos of the six female J-10 pilots they've just trained?

    That's the sort of in-depth analysis people are after.

    If it's been sent from my HTC Sensation using Tapatalk then I'm probably pissed.
  6. That looks like the result of cross breeding between an F16 and a Typhoon......
  7. Got a kind of cartoonish image in my head of a Typhoon mounting an F16 and ******* it. Then I remember it's RAF and therefore almost asexual in nature.

    The all-conquering, all-eggs-in-one-basket F-35 is single-engined...

  9. I bet it's quarter the price and works twice as good!
  10. The Jian 10 is the "Vigorous Dragon" in Chinese. I think I prefer that to Typhoon/Taifun. The engine might be iffy but they do a good name !
  11. Harrier only had one engine and that was fine off carriers

  12. That plane is the result of SAAB and BAE engineers leaving their product sitting in hangers unattended for too long

    Don't worry lads, Its more than likely built from parts that are made by the Honk Kong Flyapart Co. Ltd.

    Robbo, that was ******* funny.

    I suspect there's more than a scent of the Israeli Lavi in the J-10, however.
