    I want Asia on my front porch and America as my backyard.
    Disclaimer: By America, I meant the Continent. And yes, I know Asian homes have neither a backyard nor a porch in the American sense.

    Here is another one which I just found in wfroum.com
    A J-11 is taking off or landing at an airport at Shengyang.

    Re: China Flanker Thread II

    It looks like it maybe the same J-11B or one belonging to the same batch as Deino's picture. The pattern on the primer has been different from previous J-11s and J-11B prototypes. This maybe a definitive version. If they are testing and verifying in Shenyang now rather than in the CFTC, then this is strong indication of more progress on the plane, probably in serial production and in an initial deployment stage.

    Do note that Deino's J-11B picture has the mysterious pod-array-missile that has been seen on a J-8F testbed.

    I am quite sure about the location of the second pic. The chinese characters on the building is 'Shengyang Public Tumor hospital'.

    Just wondering... what is the credibility of that website? I was readng the section on the KJ-2000 and it makes some claims about how advanced it is as compared to other established AWACS platforms.

    generally, these sites are not too credible. However, the KJ-2000 article came from an interview with its developer. (if it's the one that I'm thinking of) So, I guess it at least shows their confidence in the system.

    As for this flanker, we know at least this is not one of the improved su-33s with canards. Other than that, I'm not sure what to make of it. It looks like the Lerx is slightly larger, but that could just be my eyes.

    Re: China Flanker Thread II

    another article from HKB (aerospace daily) on a new fighter from SAC (J-11B)

    a lot of stuff here is interesting like it took 4 years and works with 60 institutes for the fighter to basically be developed. It also talks about newer material for the planes that extends life, reduces weight developed over the time. A whole new avionics system being developed with a lot of work, A4 pages, files and such. It took 10 months to complete the system design and another 9 months to conduct China's largest avionics integration test. It past many tests. It took 7 months to develop a whole set of measuring system. A lot of boasting. I don't think this really deserves it, since it took so long to come out.

    according to kanwa, 50% of component such as engine,IRST still has to be imported from Russia.
    despite talk of J-11B as some sort of Chinese equivalent of SU-30MKK,J-11B may turn out to be more like SU-27SKM.
    according to DIIC, new technology developed for MiG-1.19,forward sweep fighter were later incorporated into MiG-35 and SU-30Mkk,the main computer for SU-30mkk along is more powerful than EF-2000,but still lower than F-22.

    No... your way off buddy dont believe in Kanwa its to me seems more like a leisure reading rather then a credible source for PLA. WS-10A engines has most bugs fixed, domestic avionics and instruments are flying, HMS doing well only thing that could be lacking a litte bit compared to rest would be radar.

    J-11B should be better than the Su-30MKK3 offered to PLA if not well then I dont know what the PLA researchers are doing them with increased funds being allocated to them. Su-30 computer being more powerful than Euro well depends what you mean by the word "Powerful" really
