J-10=Lavi...Israel's failed 80's aircraft.This is NOT a "homegrown" design and China always copies out of date garbage....A-5=Mig-19,J-7=Mig-21,J-8=SU-15,J-10=Lavi,and the 50's vintage TU-15 Badger that was retired from all airforce's that had them in the 80's is STILL being built today by china...Now THAT's HOMEGROWN!!!!LOL!! If they are SOOOOOO proud of the J-10...please send it to a western airshow!!!

@firegod69

The "copied" J-10 happens to perform better than the F-16 Block 52.

The "copied" J-8 also happens to be ranked better than the F-16C, F/A-18, and Mirage-2000 (according to FAS)

And BTW, it's the Tu-16, not Tu-15.

It seems that you yourself are a copy of a classic ignorant idiot.
