    Six PLAAF JL-10As - allegedly assigned to the Shijiazhuang Flying Academy - during preparations / rehearsals to celebrate the 70th Anniversary with a military parade on the PRC's National Day on 1 October 2019

    Interesting that it appears some aircraft being delivered to PLAAF/PLAN are radar equipped? I know the Uruguayan Air Force was interested in a variant with radar but given the electoral politics that some members of this forum have mentioned, a slowing economy, and general indifference about the military among the Uruguayan people, it's unlikely there will be a buy any time soon. My understanding is that China offered the aircraft on very favourable terms as they are keen to get an initial sale in South America. The Uruguayan Air Force just recently fitted their A-37's with Martin-Baker ejection seats so looks like they will keep then a while longer. And the only other rumoured Latin American buyer of the L-15, Venezuela, I cant see any major purchase given their severe crisis.

    So the PLAAF's 1st Training Brigade under the Shijiazhuang FA based at Shijiazhuang indeed operates both the standard JL-10 and the improved radar-equipped JL-10A. (Image via Weimeng)
