      China should allow potential overseas buyers to learn more details of the FC-31 or Shenyang J-31, the nation's second fifth-generation stealth fighter designed by the Shenyang Aircraft Corporation, writes the Kanwa Defense Review, a Chinese-language military magazine based in Canada. The fighter that was displayed at the Zhuhai Airshow in Guangdong last year featured an additional electro-optical targeting system below its nose. Like Lockheed Martin's F-35, the FC-31 is designed as a joint strike aircraft that can carry out aerial combat and ground attack missions. With beyond visual strike ability, it does not matter if the fighter's RD33 engines do not allow it to operate at supersonic speeds, the piece said.
