12 Amazing images of Chinese Fighter Jets during the Golden Helmet Competition

The Golden Helmet – 2017 competition of the PLA Air Force is a series of air combat exercises, where the best pilot is awarded a golden helmet.

The challenge, where pilots demonstrate their skill through a range of challenges, was established to show the strength of the Chinese Air Force.

Recently, the Chinese Air Force has released the first images from its Golden Helmet game — which gives players the chance to fly in Chinese jets and shoot down American ones. The game is based on the Chinese Golden Helmet competition.
