The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force will gradually get more J-20 stealth fighters and Y-20 large transport aircraft, as well as the H-20 bomber in the near future to meet the goal of becoming a world-class force, experts predicted, as the service celebrated its 70th founding anniversary on Monday.

A video the PLA Air Force released on Sunday showcased its advanced, main battle equipment, including J-20 and J-16 fighters, H-6N strategic bomber, Y-20 transport plane, KJ-2000 airborne early warning system, and the HQ-9 surface-to-air missile system.

Compared to 70 years ago, when aircraft had to fly over Tiananmen Square twice at the founding ceremony of the People's Republic of China to show that China had strong airpower, the new video showed what the PLA Air Force has become today, military observers said.

China now has aerial tankers, electronic warfare aircraft, and electronic reconnaissance aircraft, and its fighter jets have evolved from first to the fifth generation, Fu Qianshao, a Chinese air defence expert, told the Global Times, noting that this shows the Air Force has a more complete system with more types of aircraft and the latest technologies.
