"The J-20 was designed by our aircraft researchers for future aerial combat. Test pilots from the Air Force will use it to perform at the 11th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition," Shen said.

The biennial six-day event, commonly known as the Zhuhai Air Show, starts on Tuesday in the coastal city of Zhuhai, in South China's Guangdong province.

China conducted the maiden flight of the J-20 in January 2011 and has produced 10 prototypes. It is believed to be the third stealth fighter jet to enter service following the United States' F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II stealth warplanes.

This is the first time the Chinese military has confirmed the existence of the J-20, which was developed and made by Aviation Industry Corp of China.
