China develops new aircraft cloaking material

Scientists have announced a breakthrough in the development of an effective new stealth technology.
The ability to hide a fighter jet from enemy radar offers a tremendous advantage when conducting operations over hostile regions and now China, which had previously been playing catch-up in this area, has announced that it has come up with a revolutionary new solution to the problem.

Its new stealth material, which is known as active frequency selective surface material (AFSS), is able to effectively absorb microwaves - meaning that it can remain undetected by ultra-high-frequency radar - a technology that can even pick up existing stealth aircraft such as the F-22.
While its development has been hailed as a significant advancement, the fact that researchers have chosen to make it public rather than keeping it a secret has been raising a few eyebrows.

Perhaps by making it widely available the scientists are hoping to give other countries the chance to find weaknesses in the material so that they can adapt it to be as effective as humanly possible.

Humans as a race are not capable of peace, hostility and aggression are part of our natural instincts, and the tribe with the biggest sticks are the ones with the greatest chance of survival. Its been that way for ever and will continue to be until we inevitability release the nukes and end our entire existence

Its been that way for ever and will continue to be until we inevitability release the nukes and end our entire existence I tend to agree with part of this. Greed and power is what humans strive for and they will do anything to get it, some will even kill their own family and friends to get rich quick and rule .

If Chinese jets are like the other products they manufacture, the biggest threat they pose is that they will fall from the sky and land on our heads.

Never underestimate the shortsightedness of greedy capitalists. They brought the most advanced technology and manufacturing to China, to reduce local personnel costs, and thus lost control of the technology and ultimately empowered the Chinese to control their own destiny. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

If you want to see humanity's true nature, observe a dozen 3 year olds playing in a sandbox for an hour.

This is a race...seriously...we are all in big troubles!!! One of the reasons the first world war started was the fact that Germany realized that neighboring countries were getting up to speed in military power. It is obvious that countries such as china, Russia..are powering up the best they can for the fatalistic day. Getting ready the best they can..that day unfortunately will come. I just hope this scale tilts to the Occident...
