Adjust font size:

China's home-made new-generation fighter aircraft, the Jian-10 (Fighter-10), made its debut in Beijing on Friday.

China is the fourth country in the world to develop its own advanced fighter aircraft, aero-engines and missiles, said Geng Ruguang, deputy general manager of the China Aviation Industry Corporation I (AVIC I).

The country's defense industry has developed the Jian-10, the Taihang turbofan engine and new-generation air-to-air missiles.

The Jian-10 and the Taihang turbofan engine, both with proprietary intellectual property rights (IPR), heralded the third generation of Chinese fighter aircraft and military aero-engines, said Geng.

He said the Chinese Air Force had been equipped with the country's newly-developed fourth-generation air-to-air missiles.
