The Reds are collaborating again:
Russia is to supply the Chinese air force with 10 advanced SU-35 fighter jets, highly maneuverable aircraft which first debuted in the Syrian theater of operations.
The delivery of the SU-35s will happen throughout 2017 and come as part of a two billion dollar, three-year deal signed with China through which Beijing is to purchase a total of 24 of thei fighter jets.
Four jets were supplied at the end of 2016.
The SU-35s is a 4+++ generation air craft but is fifth generation ready. It has a maximum speed of 2,500 kph and a range of 3,600 kilometers.
China has been boosting its air power by purchasing and developing its own fifth-generation air craft.

Is this a provocative move, or merely a defensive one? Bear in mind that over half of all global arms sales are made by the US, and many of those weapons are used to suppress local peoples when they rebel against their US-sponsored tyrants.
By the way, these SU-35s can probably run circles around the F-35 clunkers being purchased by the US. And China is VERY good at reverse engineering and copying machinery. The Russia-China combo is a formidable foe.
