    There is a gradual increase in the use of composite in every improve model not only on the J10's but on the Flanker variants.

    I'm guessing it's a more heat-resistant compound? Just guessing.

    Allegedly the first in-service J-10C. Sorry Deino, but serials have been scrubbed.

    Just found that one too ... and IMO it looks very much like a '5xx5x'-serial - so the 44. Division as rumoured since some time.
