To sell fighters, China must at first stop crashing fighters, and secondly use them once with success!There are enough tyrant to kill on earth: Hafez al-Assad for example, and nobody would mourn him!If China would kill a tyrant with one single bomb, it would be a premiere!(See: USA needed millions bombs to not kill Gaddafi, our fighter needed one)
