Did China Get Plans for Our Semi-Secret F-22 Raptor And Copy It? See the Alleged Pictures
The Blaze ^ | 6/14/12 | Liz Klimas

Posted on 06/04/2012 11:38:36 AM PDT by Nachum

Last week, the blog China Defense posted two photos, nearly identical, with only one line of text: “Just in case you might get confused, only one bird below is the J-20.”

The J-20 stealth fighter is the creation of the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group for the People’s Liberation Army in China. About a year and a half ago, the People’s Liberation Army conducted its first tests of the aircraft, which is expected to be fully operational sometime between 2017 and 2019.

I’m thinking that a really stern letter is forthcoming from Obama. And, I suspect, that in the last paragraph of this stern letter that Obama will ask for a large campaign contribution. Two birds, one stone.

“Semi-secret”????

Our Gummint is doing everything up to holding weekend yard sales to peddle F-22s and (never-to-be-completed) F35s to anybody who can pony up the cash...

Classified Security Fail

This blog is about a year behind the curve - I made the image above on January 4, 2011.

Did China get the plans? Of course they did, what kind of stupid question is that, Liz Klimas?

As there’s only one picture of each it’s hard to tell if it’s an exact clone or knockoff.

If pilots and groundcrew are dropping like flies around it, then it’s a clone...

HTH.. ;)

This WAS the one that was having oxygen system problems wasn’t it?

That’s one way to get back at China. Leak plans, but make sure those are the ones that have had lots of bugs designed into them first.

Excellent point. The Russians were good at copying too.

” This WAS the one that was having oxygen system problems wasn’t it? “

I saw a report a couple of weeks ago that stated that groundcrew had passed out in proximity to the aircraft, and that they were also looking into the RAM (Radar Absorbing Material) coating as a possible toxic source....

(Don’t have a link at the tip of my fingers, but there was at least one thread on FR about it...)

Were/are LockMart employees passing out when the F22/F35 was/are being built?

As far as I can recall, the article didn’t mention such a thing....

Upon further reflection, I’d think that production workers would be wearing, at least, respirators, and perhaps even full-up tox-protection suits as they apply the RAM...

I do seem to recall from the article that the incidents they reported occurred while the F-22’s engines were running, and that heat driving off toxic gases might be a factor...

Nah, it only happens when the anti-gravity generator is switched on.

I thought it was because the pilot forgot to shut off the Stealth Rays.

That's what they used to say about Japan. What did happen to our electronics industry, anyway? :)

I don’t think I ever heard that about Japan. Our electronics industry fled overseas with our manufacturing base. D’oh!

The difference is that things made in Japan are made extremely well, whereas things made in China....well, they suck. I actually own a ton of consumer electronics (home theater buff), and I can’t remember the last time I had anything that was made in Japan, fail. I have a Rotel amp and tuner in my office that were both made in 1978 and they function flawlessly.
