CHINA's Stealth Fighter

The first mock up photo of China's "5th generation" stealth fighter jet has been published (Hat/Tip Teflon).

Excerpts from FreeRepublic.com:
According to the reports of the Jane's Defence Weekly, China has already launched its next generation stealthy fighter aircraft programme, and Shenyang Aircraft Industry Co. (SAC) has been selected to head research and development of a new fighter for the PLA Air Force (PLAAF). ...Images of the concepts show a twin-engine aircraft sharing some design traits with Lockheed Martin's stealthy F/A-22 "Raptor" multirole fighter such as the internal carriage of its weapons.
