New level of Piracy
China now goes beyond Rolex and Gucci or any phony craps you’d find at Petaling Street.
We are talking Jet Fighters, yes, about Jet Fighters.
Russia claimed that the production of J11 jet fighters by China copy their Su-27SK. The new Shenyang J-11 is an advanced fighter, a Chinese redesigned of the Russia’s Su-27SK.
And Russia is pursuing legal proceedings to protect its intellectual property.
Source here. The Sukhoi Su-27 (NATO reporting name ‘Flanker’) is a jet fighter plane originally manufactured by the Soviet Union, and designed by the Sukhoi Design Bureau. It was intended as a direct competitor for the new generation of American fighters (which emerged as the F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle, F-16 Fighting Falcon, and F/A-18 Hornet), with long range, heavy armament, and very high agility. The Su-27 most often flies air superiority missions, but is able to perform almost all combat operations. Its closest American counterpart is the F-15 Eagle.
