China’s Twin-Seat Stealth Aircraft Revealed
The rumours that China develops a twin-seat fifth-generation aircraft gained ground. Andreas Rupprecht (Deino), a military aviation specialist in China, book author, and China news reporter, published the first images of aircraft. He did obtain the photographs via a Chinese Twitter account.

The aircraft’s name is unknown. As a result, it is referred to as the J-20S, J-20AS, or possibly the J-20B. The aircraft is seen with its green paint at Chengdu Aerospace Corporation plant during taxiing. It is not known whether it performed its maiden flight. There were some other images from the twin-seat aircraft but appeared to be fabricated ones.

There are several fifth-generation aeroplanes on the market. They are all single-seaters. The platform benefits greatly from the single-seat configuration. Twin-seat occupies more space than single-seat. It adds extra weight to the platform. The canopy, which is a crucial issue in reducing radar cross-section, grows larger with twin-seat.

The twin-seat variant, on the other hand, enables pilot training. On the other hand, modern fly-by-wire aircraft require less actual flight training, and the majority of it is done in simulators. As the aeroplane transforms into a flying sensor, two pilots may divide the load. The information arriving from various sources may clash with the pilot’s limited cognitive and processing capabilities.
