    Really enjoying these J-16 photos. Love that RAM grey paint. The Flanker remains such an impressive design. This makes me feel that India should have upgraded their MKI fleet with better subsystems and weapons. Of course integrating all that is difficult and their domestic capability is doubtful. But with equally modern weapons and subsystems, the Flanker based fighter has to be on paper the best 4th generation fighter (including Typhoon and Rafale). This would be assuming all things being equal which we know they are not in the real world.

    It can hold its own WVR and can carry a more powerful radar and more weapons for BVR. Can also fly further and loiter longer. This is why Russia and China will continue to upgrade and modernise their Flankers with the latest and greatest subsystems and weapons.
