DOD seemed to offer a re-assessment of the capabilities of China's F-10 fighter, which it previously had compared to the F-16 Block 30. (See "Washington Watch: Chinese Military IsCatching Up Fast" September 2005, p. 12.) In this latest version of the annual China report, the Pentagon said the F-10 is probably more comparable to the Eurofighter Typhoon and French Rafale, considered among the top three fighters in the world today, after the US F-22A. The Pentagon expects more than 1,200 F-10s will be built, and improved versions—the F-10A and "Super-10" are in advanced development.
