    How come the two outer missiles have no fin? Training missile?

    J-10's TVC nozzle, anybody posted this before?

    Might be the smoke dispensers. Would that aid ground observation for tests? Maybe electronic sensors.

    They are not missiles. They smoke generator used during airshows.

    Yes, those smoke generators give an awesome picture of the wing tip vortices, if you look at some film of the J-10 OVT from Zhuhai, you will be amazed.... LOL, or at least you should be.....

    The so far highest construction number spotted on any J-10C: Batch 03 aircraft 39.
    To remember the first Batch 03 aircraft were only confirmed as 0302 and 0303 in mid-October 2018.

    I would say with 75 confirmed Batch 02 and 39 confirmed Batch 03 aircraft, we have 114 ... so YES.
