Its prototype was powered by 2 Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp as powerplants, which is the same engine used by the Grumman F6F Hellcat

The August 1st aerobatics team of the PLAAF flew the Chengdu J-7EB for many years. It was their second type of aircraft. Their first aircraft was the JJ-5, a Chinese developed two-seat trainer version of the MiG-17.

You may designate marks but the next poster should not reply with a different mark of the same airplane (eg. Spitfire Mk. V should not be followed by Spitfire Mk. IV, F-14 A should not be followed by F-14 B, etc.) unless you are at a complete loss. It would be nice to see you guys think outside the box a bit. You may also include an image of the plane you mention as well as a link to more information on the plane, although this is not required.
Italics added by Plunderbird.

Re-post of the original, first post. Just to get things right. I therefore agree my F22 post was wrong. But I also say that iqmal_97 could have done better.
Lets try, from the Su 37..
Is a forward swept wing, as was the X29.
As it says, you don't need to put a pic.
