    Mmmm, why are these photos making the rounds on Weibo? Does anyone know? Is this a new variant of J-16?

    Perhaps it's the fact that first two photos show the J-16 carrying the KD-88.

    J-11B spotted during a CM-400AKG AShM test ... IMO quite a surprise

    But just a manufactor's test for the missile or a test related to integrate it into the PLAAF/PLA NA and the J-11B or even J-15??

    Probably a manufacturer's test.

    We've seen pictures and videos of a large variety of air to ground munitions and missiles being launched from various fixed wing combat aircraft over the years, but few if any of those have entered service to our knowledge.

    I expect this to be similar.

    Agreed. It’s the J-11D radar testbed from CFTE carrying an LS-6 and a CM-400AKG under the wings.
