According to Chinese media reports, the current Chengdu aircraft has opened three production lines to build J-20, and intends to start in 2019 to copy the previous production J -10A / B / C plan, while opening four production lines to produce a monthly output The speed of the completion of an annual output of 48 targets.

"CCTV" is also the last month of the program, the first exposure of the turbo -15 processing and the latest assembly, revealed that will be able to enhance the integration of the J-20 follow-up model of its production, flight performance and combat effectiveness.
Of course, the fan -15 public, so many Chinese military fans can not wait to be called J-20 has adopted the Emei engine news. In this regard, the Chinese military expert Zhang Wenchang analysis, a development of the engine must go through a large number of long-term bench test, installed test, etc., in order to final shape, in particular, "stable operation" for an engine is not only the most important, Is also the most difficult to achieve. The replacement of the engine is a major event for the aircraft, once the aircraft for the engine, the model will change. Therefore, if the J-20 to use the new Chinese-made engine, the corresponding aircraft model will change. "From this point of view, J-20 has adopted the Emei engine is quite a small possibility."
