Chengdu J-20 Stealth Plane = “Akiyama Mio”

chengdu-j-20-mecha-musume-moe-001

Queen of moeblobs Mio Akiyama has apparently found herself appropriated by Chinese otaku as an image character for their nation’s newly copied stealth plane, the Chengdu J-20.

The similarity is said to be both because of certain mild aesthetic similarities between the two, and because of some tenuous connection between the Akiyama Mio name and the plane.

The fact that plenty of Chinese anime fans love Mio probably helps a great deal as well…

The J-20 proper, part of China’s ongoing military build up:

j-20-1
j-20-2
j-20-3

The plane is thought to be the result of Chinese spies copying American stealth planes, using parts clandestinely retrieved from a stealth plane shot down over Serbia.

It has already been the subject of some original moe anthropomorphisation, in the form of the splendid display of mecha-musume shown below (most of which are apparently not by Chinese artists for some strange reason):
