In the late 1990s, China initiated the J-XX program, aimed at developing a fifth-generation fighter. The Chinese revealed the first product of the J-XX program, the J-20, to the world in 2011. It is designed for high-alpha control and supercruise performance.
 
It uses internal weapons bays capable of carrying both short and long-range AAMs, and an advanced HUD and glass cockpit has been mounted on the aircraft. The prototypes were flying with Saturn AL-31F engines, allowing for flight testing to proceed while the planned WS-15 engines were under development.
