J-31 Stealth Fighter

China unveiled its new stealth fighter jet—J-31 at the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai City in November 2014.

The J-31 stealth fighter, named Falcon Eagle in Chinese, is produced by Shenyang Aircraft Corporation. As the fourth-generation domestically produced multi-role fighter, the J-31 features a diverter-less supersonic inlet (DSI) design with bumps and forward-swept inlet cowls. The airframe incorporates a pair of low-aspect ratio trapezoidal platform wings with titanium spars. The aircraft is operated by single pilot and powered by two RD-93 afterburning turbofan engines.

During its test flight at the exhibition, J-31 performed a short field take-off and landing, figure of eight flying and low altitude flying, attracting broad public attention.
