China is developing new fighter jet to replace the J-15

Tinuku - China is reportedly developing a new fighter to replace the Shenyang J-15 type aircraft due to a series of incidents caused by mechanical failure. The increase of the fleet as one of Beijing's efforts to build a navy capable of operating globally and will be deployed on aircraft carriers.

China's J-15 fighter jets are currently built on the prototype of the fourth-generation Russian-built Sukhoi Su-33 dual-engined fighter, but the design developed by Shenyang Aircraft Corporation is China's government-owned aviation industry unit.

The fighter jet has a maximum take-off weight of up to 33 tons as the world's heaviest carrier-based attacker and is stationed in Liaoning, China's first aircraft carrier. The development of new fighter jets is considered urgent and China plans to build at least four groups of aircraft carriers to meet the ambitions of the global navy.

The ranks of other Chinese fighter fleets are stealth FC-31 as the latest generation model that first airs in 2012 which has smaller size and lighter than J-15. A new generation aircraft carrier is also under construction at the Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai.

China's second-generation carrier will use an electromagnetic launch system to facilitate launch and landing. It also allows more aircraft to be launched in a shorter timeframe than the Liaoning aircraft carrier.
