China's J-20 stealth fighters have started to patrol the East and South China Seas as part of routine training missions, state-owned media reported.
据官方媒体报道,作为例行训练任务的一部分,中国的歼20隐形战机已开始在东海和南海巡逻。
 
According to the Global Times newspaper, the announcement was made by Ren Yukun, head of the discipline inspection and supervision team and a member of the leading party group at the state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC).
据《环球时报》报道,该消息是由国有的中国航空工业集团公司(AVIC)纪检监察组组长、党组成员任玉琨(Ren Yukun)发布的。
 
In a press conference on 12 April, Yukun reportedly said that it has become a training routine for Chengdu J-20s to fly “combat patrols” in the East China Sea and “alert patrols” in the South China Sea.
据报道,任玉琨在4月12日的新闻发布会上表示,在东海进行“战斗巡逻”和在南海进行“警戒巡逻”已成为成都歼-20战斗机的例行训练。
 
He added that these patrols are being undertaken after the J-20 switched to using “domestically developed engines”.
他补充说,这些巡逻是在歼-20改用“国产发动机”之后进行的。
 
The aircraft were originally powered by Russian-made Saturn AL-31FN-series engines. Janes previously reported that the Saturns are starting to be replaced by indigenously developed Shenyang-Liming WS10C turbofan engines from at least September 2019. The Chinese engine is said to offer superior thrust in comparison with the Saturns.
这种飞机最初由俄罗斯制造的“土星”AL-31FN系列发动机提供动力。简氏之前曾报道,至少从2019年9月起,“土星”开始被自主研发的沈阳黎明WS10C涡扇发动机所取代。据说,与“土星”相比,中国的发动机提供了更大的推力。
