Indian Rafale jets not superior to China's J-20 stealth fighter jet
August 02, 2020

A Chinese military expert has rejected the Indian claim that France made Rafale fighter jet recently delivered to New Delhi is superior to China's J-20 stealth fighter jet.

Zhang Xuefeng told Global Times that the Rafale is only a third-plus generation fighter jet, and does not stand much of a chance against a stealth, fourth generation one like the J-20.

 

He said the Rafale is comparable to other third-plus generation fighter jets used by other countries, but it will find it very difficult to confront a stealth-capable fourth generation fighter jet.
