The Chengdu J-10 fighter jet is a Chinese multirole aircraft. It was developed by the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group in the early 1990s, and entered service with the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) in 2002. The FC-1’s name, “Fierce Dragon”, derives from an old saying that a fierce dragon will appear as soon as it rains. This is also reflected on its red tail design which symbolizes fire and power of dragons.
