Chinese home-grown multi-role fighter jet J-10C has been put into active combat duty on Monday.
The stealth fighter is equipped with advanced avionics system and other airborne weapons and has airstrike capabilities within medium and close range and is capable of precision striking land and maritime targets, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) air force was quoted as saying in a statement by Xinhua Monday.
J-10 is China's third-generation supersonic fighter and made its debut when the PLA marked its 90th anniversary in July 2017 at Zhurihe military training base in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
China had in February commissioned it’s the latest J-20 stealth fighter into its air force's combat service. The J-20 is China's fourth-generation medium and long-range fighter jet.
The new jet is modified from the J-10 fighter jet and will help improve the air force's fighting and war-readiness capabilities, said Wang Mingzhi, a military expert.
The air force is gradually building a combat system adapted to the need of informationized air warfare, comprised of heavy air superiority fighters such as J-11 series, multi-role fighters such as J-10 series and J-16, new-generation stealth fighters such as J-20, and medium and long-range bombers such as H-6K, Wang said.
The Chengdu J-10 is capable of all-weather operation, configured with a delta wing and canard design, with fly-by-wire flight controls.
