F-35 scores first J-20 kill — on AFRL poster

The Chengdu J-20 first flew on 11 January, but it’s already found itself in the cross-hairs of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL)’s munitions directorate. A poster at the AFRL stand at the Air Warfare Symposium today shows a Lockheed Martin F-35 firing a short-range missile at a not-too-distant target (see close-up below), with a future long range strike platform in the frame. Nice shot, F-35. It isn’t clear from the poster whether the J-20 neglected to fire an SD-10 at Lockheed’s second-finest stealth fighter, or if it perhaps already missed on the opening salvo.
