Scientists have announced a breakthrough in the development of an effective new stealth technology.
The ability to hide a fighter jet from enemy radar offers a tremendous advantage when conducting operations over hostile regions and now China, which had previously been playing catch-up in this area, has announced that it has come up with a revolutionary new solution to the problem.

Its new stealth material, which is known as active frequency selective surface material (AFSS), is able to effectively absorb microwaves – meaning that it can remain undetected by ultra-high-frequency radar – a technology that can even pick up existing stealth aircraft such as the F-22.

While its development has been hailed as a significant advancement, the fact that researchers have chosen to make it public rather than keeping it a secret has been raising a few eyebrows.
