It is still using Russian Jet Engines. Shows that their jet engine tech is still not up to par.

They are reasonably pleased with the old Russian tech, so why ain't you happy?
Oh, they're catching up too fast for your arse to stay cold eh?
Not long now the Chinese will have the capacity to project power, and may even able to blockage the US Military base of Diego Garcia.

Those Chinese planes are useless, they need Russian parts and only Russians can maintain and repair them.

Those planes are huge and slow with no stealth, just a sitting duck for our missiles. No wonder the Chinese have lost every major war.

China should not even talk about military. Their strong point is business and politics. they are a bunch of cowards.

The Chinese will probably take the parts and and start manufacturing themselves. They do like to steal other country's ideas and manufacture the parts at slave labor cost.
