    j-10 is cheaper than f-15.

  2. john

    J-10 is better and cheaper, more advanced avionics. Especially the J-10b

  3. David Chung

    Both equally good aircraft in term of technology. However, the avionics And skill of the pilot makes a lot of difference.

    You’d think that after 23 years, we could make the AIM-120D AMRAAM for less than US$0.7M per shot. That is scandalous as far as I’m concerned..
