(The Diplomat, By Abraham Ait) The Chengdu J-20 is China's response to the F-22 Raptor, the first fifth generation fighter jet active in the world developed outside the United States. As the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) has historically adapted existing airframes to perform specialized tasks rather than building completely new airframes, this could be a future use of the J-20. It could even be adapted for a strike and electronic warfare role, which would make it the first fifth generation jet to act in such a role. <Accessed 2019-02-10>
