    This thread needs to be closed forever. It is a waste of bits.

    Russian engines, and most other things, are notorious for very short life and poor quality compared to WS10 & western ones.
    Even after PLA improved them significantly, they still need to be replaced very often.
    So indeed the old J11 & J10 still need many AL31 until they retire. It's not worth upgrading them to WS10 as AL31 sell very cheaply.

    Please note that we already have an engine thread. Next time, try to post into that one.

    btw, there are some really bad assumptions and conclusions made in the original article and some of the posts here.
