    I'm talking about the small pedals that dropped down, I'm not aware those existed in older engines. The inner and outer 'rings' of the nozzle are still actively actuated, they are not free-moving or fixed like on older jet engines.

    One advantage of an ejector nozzle is actually lowered heat signature.

    From https://imediaukraine.wordpress.com...o-and-stealth-jet-motors-for-chinas-military/
    In part:
    This doesn't look like a reliable site. I haven't look here before. But Motor Sich investing in Chongqing is worth noting.
    The article also mentioned production of An-124 in China. Will Motor Sich move the production of engines for these aircraft to Chongqing?

    I'm confused about the 2022 remark; are they referring to the WS-15o_O? And what's with the WS-10C remark? Very weird ...

    if he means "Latest fighter jets to use domestically made engines by 2022" and connects this with the J-11B-production & WS-10C, I have daubs that then a WS-15 will be ready soon.

    Did the air force expert specifically mentioned a WS-10C variant? If so, how would the WS-10C compare to the WS-10B?

    WS-10C? What is that?

    I am wondering whether the designations "A", "B", "C" have to do with the max thrust

    We officially know the Taihang thrust range is 12000 kgf to 14000 kgf (link-1, ,link-2)

    My speculations -

    WS-10 (Original) - 118 kN?
    WS-10A (PLAAF J-11B/BH) - 123 kN?
    WS-10H (PLAN J-11BH/BSH, J-15T) - 125 kN?
    WS-10B - (PLAAF J-10B #155 & #156) - 130 kN?
    WS-10C (PLAAF J-16, J-11B new batches/upgrades?) - 134 kN?
    WS-10X (PLAAF J-20, J-11D) - 137 kN

    What I meant was we have only heard of WS-10B, but not WS-10C.

    The report suddenly mentioned about WS-10C.

    I was wondering if the designation WS-10C was an invention of the reporter, or whether if it actually came out of the expert's mouth.

    According to PUPU, a big shrimp, WS-10B has more than 13.2 metric tons (129.45 kN) of thrust, and its performance was deemed "very good". So one item on your list is confirmed to be on target.
