Stealth Chinese J-20s vs. India’s New Rafael Fighters: Which Plane Is Better?

In recent months it has been China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) that has been rattling sabers in the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean, but this month it has been the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) that has been conducting readiness exercises and highlighting its latest military hardware.

Officially established in November 1949, the PLAAF is now composed of five branches, which include aviation, anti-aircraft artillery, surface-to-air missiles, radar and an Airborne Corps. It is the largest air force in Asia.

This week three of China’s five military regions have mounted air combat readiness drills in a show of force as tensions rise with the United States in the South China Sea.
