    China's New Stealth Fighter Uses US Tech

    If there's anything China does well it's replication. From Facebook to iPods to operating systems. As a Comp Sci major, it's frustrating to see all this happen.

    While imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, how do you keep ahead in this global environment?

    It should be noted that we actually do not know whether the stealth material on this jet is actually effective.

    Secondly, the wonderful thing about copying American stealth techniques is that you can bet a vast number of American scientists have figured out how to detect it :-)

    The Chinese develop a stealth fighter, and FOX goes blaring that it uses replicated technology?

    How do they even know that, I'm pretty sure the Chinese security services are smart enough not to release technical data that early in the process.

    Also, stealth technology depends on two factors, the materials used, and the angles at which those materials are shaped so they deflect the radar. You can hardly call that principle, which is a principle like the principle of flight or the principle of terminal velocity, not exactly proprietary technology.

    America is gonna have to learn to live with the fact that they're not the only technological superpower anymore. Prepare to get pwnd.

    No, the materials absorb the radar.
