    According to GAC, Air Force signed the follow-up order of JL-9 on 22.12.2016. The last batch of JL-9s of this year is in final trial flight before hand-over.

    Not holding my breath till that final (?) evolution of the Fishbed family tree made a carrier trap landing.

    JL-10...not very sure what to make of it, becasue JL-9 and JL-10 supposedly two competing designs, not complimenting each other...
