China's new version of its J-20 fighter jet completed its first test flight successfully Saturday, escorted by a J-10S fighter, a leading Chinese-language infotainment web portal cited sources as saying Saturday.
The mil.news.sina.com.cn website said the plane landed successfully at around 12:30 p.m.
Reports also said that the J-20 No. 2011 has undergone several improvements and upgrades in terms of engine capacity, as well combat and stealth ability.
Chinese military expert Du Wenlong, in a recent interview with China's CCTV television channel, said the new version of J-20 could mean that all the technical problems of the old versions of J-20 have been solved and that combat training tests will follow.
