J31 is highly defective and no one wants it.   Aerodynamic flaw: when turning, it loses much altitude, and afterburner has to be used, making the J31 the most inferior plane on the market today.  People don't even want it for free.

China is making the J31 for export-only not for domestic use. China designed the J31 airframe as a knockoff of the F-35 design which has been criticized for its poor maneuverability ("can't turn, can't climb, can't run"), a fact not demonstrated by the carrier-landing tests of the F-35 so far. Lockheed Martin never did actual performance tests of the F-35 design just computer simulations. But China has already made a copy of the F-35 design and shown just how bad its maneuverability is. No wonder China doesn't intend to deploy the F-35 knockoff for its own Air Force because it knows the F-35 design is a turkey. If foreign countries want to buy the F-35, then they must as well buy the Chinese version as it's far cheaper.
