- "It looks pretty tough, doesn't it? It's a large stealth fighter, or so I'm told. Well, what do you think?"
- ―Harry's description of this plane in the shop.
The Jian-Ji 12 is a pseudo-fictional aircraft that only appears in Airforce Delta Strike. This aircraft was the result of a fairly odd circumstance; in 1998, the Office of Naval Intelligence reported China and Shenyang was developing an F-22 class stealth fighter, known as the J-12. However, the aircraft's designation is somewhat incorrect; the actual aircraft would be revealed as the J-XX, and would therefor lead to the J-20 and J-31, with the J-31 being the Shenyang-developed fighter. The actual J-12 was a MiG-21 variant, and had nothing to do with the real J-XX program. As a result, this plane is technically real, but has very odd circumstances surrounding it; the design itself is still entirely fictional. It is only flyable by Ruth Valentine.
This is an... Odd craft. It looks incredibly similar to the F/A-22 Raptor, only it's a good deal smaller. The wings are much smaller, and are delta-shaped. It lacks rear wings as well. Despite that, it's clear the Raptor was a design influence on this plane.
A plane that struggles to stand out among the competition. Although its stats are above average all around, it pales in comparison to the likes of the Su-30MKI, which we must remind you will have been unlocked before this plane. It has internal bomb-bays (a bad start), and a fairly meh special weapon. It has vulcans and a decent salvo of missiles, but it's just so... Average compared to the great Su-30MKI, it's hard to recommend. Especially with how expensive this thing is. It just isn't worth the hassle.
