    F-7Ns? When were these bought?
    It isn't from the deal Nigeria asked for in the last couple of months, was it?

    What modifications did it have to have it cost 18 million?
    A F-7 costing more than a FC-1, JL-8 at 20 million, and L-15 at 15 million?!

    How in the world can JL-8 cost more than L-15.......
    In what currency did all these numbers come from?

    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.

    New generation of trainer aircraft passes appraisal

    www.chinaview.cn 2005-12-23 15:16:51


    GUIYANG, Dec. 23 (Xinhuanet) -- China's new generation of trainer aircraft, the JL9, has passed appraisal by a state-level expert panel in Guiyang, southwest China's Guizhou Province.

    The JL9 advanced trainer aircraft has proven very good performances at takeoffs, landings and during flight and can effectively perform pilot training mission, said Song Wencong, an academician with the Chinese Academy of Engineering and head of the appraisal team.

    "The aircraft is equipped with an advanced avionic system and its cabin design is very similar to that of the third-generation fighter aircraft," he said.

    JL9 has multifunctional displays that make it easier for the pilot to acquire, access and use data, said Song.

    The aircraft, designed and manufactured independently by Guizhou Aviation Industrial Group, had the first successful trial flight at the end of 2003.

    The 18-month state appraisal test started in June 2004, and by the end of November, the two JL9 aircraft under test had flown for 300 hours and had 412 takeoffs and landings.

    Here's an old blurp on Nigeria's F-7NI purchase:
    http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/...eals/index.php

    Reuters reports that Nigeria's government has approved a $251 million USD purchase of 15 fighter and trainer aircraft from China, further strengthening ties between the two countries after a series of significant oil deals.

    I think they took that photo from Sinodefense site. -_-;;

    The $251 million deal includes 12 single-seat F-7NI fighters and 3 FT-7NI trainers, plus associated equipment. The average price per aircraft is $16.7 million USD, but the package also includes support, munitions, training, etc.

    The unit price of a combat aircraft varies widely depending on the number of aircraft sold and package included. Usually, if you buy fewer planes, the unit price will be high.

    That thing would be nice though.
    The JL-9 is more of a cross between a JJ-7 and a FC-1.....
    It'll be perfect for countries that are crash strapped and operates FC-1s and similar fighters primarily.

    That's good.
    Plus, when you look at the article, click on "F-7/J-7" and you will go to sinodefence. Dude, sinodefence is being recognized.
    But there is nothing about the F-7N and NI.

    There is a serous logjam in China's trainer industry. Seriously, I can't imagine how China can be purchasing from 3 different trainer programs. JL-9 will be in a huge problem once JL-15 becomes available. Plaaf might get 30 JL-9s, but that would be it. Export will also be a huge problem, since K-8 has already taken over all of China's traditional markets and JL-15 will be more attractive.

    more pictures of this. There have been so many false reports of L-15 lifting off. At least this one looks real.

    I was thinking that the PLAAf might choose to replace all of it's existing k-8s and jj-7's with jl-9's. Some of the more elite units might get the jl-15. As the next decade rolls in, more jl-9s would get replaced by jl-15s.

    To sum things up, the jl-9 is mostly going to be a stopgap aircraft until the jl-15 can be produced in sufficient numbers. Maybe some jl-9s can be sold to Pakistan to train FC-1 pilots. Since it has passed appraisel tests, we might see a few jl-9s enter service as early as later this year.

    BTW, does the jl-15 have a radar?

    Re: JL-15 and other trainers

    I think JL-8 is a basic trainer while Jl-9 and Jl-15 are advanced trainers. It likely means the training would follow:

    JL-8 then JL-15/JL-9 and then a trainer depending on what squadron they're entering such as Su-27UBK for a Flanker squadron, J-10B for a J-10 squadron etc.

    I think the idea of JL-15 being used for more advanced aircraft is right. Older flankers, the J-7, J-8, and FC-1 will probably have pilots trained with JL-9.

    Re: JL-15 and other trainers

    well, the production rate for JL-9 was said to only be about 10 next year, so JL-15 has plenty of space to make up on and it has also been tauted as a possible attacker on a future carrier. I can't imagine it not having a PD radar.

    Anyhow, it looks like this is official now, since even xinhua is posting it.

    L-15: stealthy design features?

    I may be totally wrong with my observation but the front section of the fuselage (the way the "nose" is shaped, in particular) reminds me a little of the F-22. Could this be an attempt at trying to bring some stealthy aspects into the design and use the experience gained for later fighter projects?

    F-22
    L-15

    Nobody makes just a trainer with probably zero-zero ejection seats and able to carry drop tanks
    The thing is also two engined, I wouldn't be surprised if it eneded up on the Varyag (if it ever becomes a carrier, I'm still sticking to casino)
