Brother you took the words right out of my mouth. With India in the viscinity and a big customer they would not annoy it. Secondly post Covid everyone is desperate for sales. Lastly long relationship with indonesia as you have pointed out.Well Well Well, they did not allow Pakistan to integrate Radar & EW suite of their own choice to Su-35. What changed their mind ?
- Desperate for Cash I think.
- An order large enough,
- As Indonesia is an old customer & they do not want to lose it.
Exactly,Brother you took the words right out of my mouth. With India in the viscinity and a big customer they would not annoy it. Secondly post Covid everyone is desperate for sales. Lastly long relationship with indonesia as you have pointed out.
Still I think they lost a good opportunity when they denied us Su35. India is so much already invested in Russain weapon systems that they could not arm twist Russia to a greater length.
Well, to each his own. Their land their rules.
They are having the same mentality of their mafia. "Show me the money before the bitches come out. Once they are yours you do what you want with them for the right price"
The more robust and potentially manned aircraft that the pin depicts definitely supports the assessment that the relatively small and apparently unmanned aircraft at the airshow was a subscale demonstrator of some kind. Chengdu's heavy focus on fighter jets might mean that this is a concept for manned sixth-generation stealth fighter or a possible large unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV). The general configuration is similar in many respects to concepts for notional sixth-generation U.S. fighter jets that have also been emerging in recent years. Chengdu's J-20s are growing in operational service with the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF), so the firm may already be beginning to look into what comes next."On Nov. 5, Avic parked a small flying wing UAS in one of its static display corrals. The apparently subscale demonstrator is the only aircraft in the Avic static display area without an identifying placard. Asked to identify the aircraft’s name, an Avic worker in the display area declined, saying it was only available for pictures.
"The mystery Avic aircraft is unlikely to be a true stealthy system. It has exposed rivets and a protruding access panel atop the fuselage. But its cranked-kite wing shape and semi-hexagonal inlet add new dimensions to Avic’s flight research."
