Cranking out J20 using WS10B domestic engines.   WS15 not ready yet.

WS10B enable J20 low level supercruise.

WS10X engines are way above Ukraine has currently.

This is for Bubbles Porter.

Ukraine jet engines are not very good currently.   China way more interested in brining Ukraine engineers over just like US and Soviet grabbing Germany scientists and engineers after WWII.

Human resources way more valuables.   

Trump cannot do anything about that.

That Ukraine jet engine is for cargo airplanes not jet fighters. The Ukrainians used to sell their cargo airplanes to Russia but that business has since evaporated. So they turned to China which has been developing its jet engines for jet fighters but not cargo airplanes. China has started a joint-venture with Russia to develop a turbofan jet engine for passenger airplanes which could be used for cargo airplanes as well.

Ukraine's Antonov has a joint-venture with China to reproduce the Soviet-era AN-225 which is the world's largest and heaviest cargo airplane. Ukraine's Motor Sich also has a joint-venture with China to produce the AI-222-25F which is an afterburning turbofan jet engine used in trainers. Sorry for the confusion, my mistake. But I agree with you that Ukraine has a lot of technical expertise in the aviation industry from its days as the aviation supplier to the Soviet Union.

Sorry, but Russia (USSR one and same) is not our friend. If they are, they wouldn't have collaborate with New Dehli on offensive weapon systems (Akulas, Admiral Gorkovs, FGFA's, Su-30/33, even offers of Su-35's, upgrade Dehli's BrahMos antiship systems) which are directed at China. Moscow looks to us only because they needed a source of revenue. China offers that. Now days, it's a you scratch my back, I yours kinda deal between Russia and China.

Dire warning: Russia's coat of arm consists of a black eagle with two geads with flickering tongues of serpents. We must fully be aware of who we are dealing with when dealing with this untrustworthy beast. At a blink of an eye, just like Kruschev and Brezhnev, Moscow will align itself with the West again, on racial grounds ( yelliw peril), turns around and rake a snsp at us.

And no, Ukraine can not be the one to help us with our technology because, ever since the break up of the Soviet Union, Ukraine is but an empty shell. It have no technology therefore nothing to offer China. But, like Verner Vahun Brahn, China is jumping on the flea market in Ukraine and bidding up all the brains powers left there by former Soviet Union to work for Chinese interests.


Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

It was reported that WS-20 has the highest thrust in the world, outranking even US, Russia and other powerplants of its class. And, like the WS-10, or even the WS-15 (F100/AL-41 wasn't done in a day either), there's bound to be bugs to be worked out (even F-35 isn't free of bugs to this very day) so cinfidence, tender. Confidence. Yes, WS-20 isn't perfect, yet, but, if they are bold enough to announce that the H-20 is just around the corner (as per General Ma Xiaotian of PLAAF) and since this engine is scheduled to power the C-919, Y-20 (both are flight tests), and for future variations of the H-6, then it (WS-20) can't be that far behind. Confidence, tender. Confidence.
