    I wonder if they really discontinued manufacture for J-10As now that J-10Bs are fielded in numbers.

    The J-10A still provides the Chinese' forces a F-16 Block-52-class fighter that adds a significant capability boost to the air force without bearing the risk of draining their budget (which might be the case with an overdependence of the Chinese on the J-10B).

    I don't think there is a reason to produce old version with rectangular air inlet, even if they retain same avionics from A version for financial reasons .

    To be honest J10B is really a 4th generation unit with 5th generation systems a really top of the line fighter

    I haven't seen any new single seated J-10A's for some time. But I think that the twin seated J-10AS may still be in production. The J-10B may qualify as a 4+ generation fighter.
