The Shenyang FC-31, also known as the J-31 or Gyrfalcon is a twin-engine, mid-size fifth-generation jet fighter currently under development by Shenyang Aircraft Corporation. It has also been referred to as the "F-60" or "J-21 Snowy Owl" in some media reports, or "Falcon Hawk" by some military enthusiasts. J-xx nomenclatures in the Chinese military are reserved to programs launched and financed by the army, while this plane was developed by a state-owned company.
J-31 incorporates certain stealth characteristics such as forward-swept intake ramps with diverterless supersonic inlet (DSI) bumps and a two-piece canopy
Due to mixed reports from China, it is unknown as to whether the J-31 will be inducted as a naval fighter, or only intended for foreign customers. In one interview with China's state media, the J-31's chief designer Sun Cong expressed his hope that the aircraft would follow his J-15 onto China's aircraft carriers. However, officials from Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) only said that the aircraft was intended for export as a competitor to the F-35. In November 2018, a news article stated that the FC-31 program has received government funding and is being sought after by both the PLANAF and PLAAF, according to official sources.
This Air Force 1 model represents the J-31 of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). The model features realistic panel lines, surface details and authentic markings. The landing gear are permanently extended.
