    With all the latest chinese gears, yeah means rocket pods of course.

    Joke aside, what's that little thing on the inner side of rocket pod.

    That would be one massive camera, wouldn't it!? And you could do that with like, a go-pro.. Check out this pic with two of these pods next to each other on one wing, so surely not a camera? Maybe a targeting pod or something? Idk *shrug*. Whatever it is, Su-35 has to be the coolest aircraft in the PLAAF inventory!

    Subjective but I reckon the J-10C is way cooler. Su-35 has some neat moves that J-16 can't do but if I were to sit in one during a war, I'd take a J-16 or J-10C if the J-20 weren't available. That makes those three cooler in some ways. Su-35 is cool for patrols and peacetime operations for sure though.

    No doubt the most agile big fighter in the PLAAF inventory as the airspeeds go down with that OVT pushing it around, unless you count the J-10C with OVT that flew at Zhuhai....

    But the Chinese Flankers strike me as a much higher quality build, just cleaner and better fit, maybe lighter too...

    Have a look at Siege's pictures, just beautiful clean, straight airframes....
