    And because the nose gear has two wheels.

    Are the two nose wheels to prevent skidding?

    Maybe because of the harder landings, the stress on the landing gear is more evenly spread.

    But isn't that taken care of by the rear landing gears?

    Yeah, but once the tailhook grabs the cable, the front end is forced down more. Two wheels absorb more energy. Just guessing.

    hint?few month before the military parade ,top81.com posted row of picture,about the air force plane going to take part in parade.among the picture was J-11,brief statement claim that the radar system has 450km detection range.this kind of range suggest AESA.
    possible some J-11 unit may already equip with AESA,but it could be demontration squardon.

    according australia airpower,Phozotron offering Zhuk-ASE AESA to PLAAF to retrofit J-11 and SU-30MK,but to date there is no response from PLAAF,which could be hint about PLAAF own AESA radar program for J-11.
