Since J-10 originated from the IAI Lavi project, people assume that they are very close to F-16 in terms of maneuverability.

How can we compare the maneuverability of the F-16 Block 60 and J-10C?

  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelHall, is there any such test data available in the public domain? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Afraid not. Fighter manufacturers do release some performance data, but quite unsurprisingly it is limited, and not necessarily fully accurate. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, that site is based on data I described. The guys who put that together did not test fly the planes. They have not even seen many (most) of them live. $\endgroup$
