Analyst: China’s J-15 carrier-based fighter inferior to Su-33
Col. (Ret.) Igor Korotchenko, a member of the Russian Defense Ministry’s Public Council, said China’s J-15 carrier-borne fighter is unlikely to match the Sukhoi Su-33.
“The Chinese J-15 clone is unlikely to achieve the same performance characteristics of the Russian Su-33 carrier-based fighter, and I do not rule out the possibility that China could return to negotiations with Russia on the purchase of a substantial batch of Su-33s,” he said.
