A canard is an aeronautical arrangement wherein a small forewing or foreplane is placed forward of the main wing of a fixed-wing aircraft.
CDADI UAVs are Chinese experimental UAVs developed by Chengdu Aircraft Design Institute (CDADI), also known as the 611th (Research) Institute (611所), some of which has developed into production models and entered service with various Chinese governmental establishments.
The Chengdu J-20 is a single-seat, twinjet, all-weather, stealth fifth-generation fighter aircraft developed by China's Chengdu Aerospace Corporation for the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF).
The empennage, also known as the tail or tail assembly, is a structure at the rear of an aircraft that provides stability during flight, in a way similar to the feathers on an arrow.
A fifth-generation jet fighter is a jet fighter classification used around the world that encompasses the most advanced jet fighter generation.
