China's stealth fighter jets feature missiles during airshow show of force

A J-20 fighter of the Chinese air force shows its load of long-range missiles at Airshow China in Zhuhai on Sunday

China's state-of-the-art stealth fighter J-20 performed unbelievable stunts at the 12th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition (Airshow China) in south China's Zhuhai City on Sunday.

On the last day of the Zhuhai airshow, two J-20 fighters opened their under-fuselage weapon bays in flight to reveal four internally mounted missiles to onlookers. Two of the J-20s then, for the first time at the air show and the first time in public, opened their missile bay doors while flying, showcasing four missiles in its belly and one on each side of the aircraft, the news daily reported.

It's not clear how many such airplanes the Chinese Air Force now has, but speculation is that there are over 20 in service.

Meant as an adversary for the American F-22 Raptor or F-35, the J-20 is China's most recent home-grown stealth fighter jet.
