    Aircraft carrier-based fighter jet officially capable of night combat
    By Liu Xuanzun Source:Global Times Published: 2018/9/13 23:08:46 Last Updated: 2018/9/14 9:27:01

    The J-15 fighter jet is capable of night takeoff and landing on an aircraft carrier, the Chinese navy newspaper said Wednesday, leading a Chinese military expert to marvel at how fast the pilots mastered a difficult and dangerous technique.

    The People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy has made a breakthrough in its aircraft carrier night takeoff and landing technique, a historic milestone for the J-15 and a significant breakthrough in overall attack and defense capability, the official PLA website navy.81.cn website reported on Wednesday.

    At night during combat, aircraft carriers are likely to dim their lights making takeoff and landing a much more challenging proposition for pilots, Song Zhongping, a military expert and TV commentator, told the Global Times on Thursday.

    Daytime take-off and landing are already difficult and dangerous as a carrier is much smaller than, for example, an airport landing strip, Song said.

    Factor in the harsh sea and weather conditions, and the pilot must learn to face and overcome massive psychological pressure.

    In a recent training session, J-15 pilots took off and landed at night multiple times and finished live-fire target practices with various types of missiles, the report said.

    "Military conflicts do not only break out during daytime, and so it's very important to take nighttime operations into consideration in preparing for a potential war," Song said.

    The fighter jets' abilities to take off and land in all weathers at all times are an important indication that a carrier has developed full combat capabilities, Song noted.

    It took five years for the J-15 to evolve from test flights, pilot training, through flying by day to flying by day and night, navy.81.cn reported.

    Compared to other countries that have aircraft carriers and have practiced the technique for decades, China took only a few years, Song said.

    The achievement showed how much PLA pilots had invested in their training, he said.

    To be fair, China has the advantage of knowing a general idea of what is required for night operations, which is laid out by other nations. Plus, their night operations training had only just commenced. A good start to be sure, but they still have a way ahead of them.

    That is understood without saying but we should not discount or diminish their achievement considering that China is way handicapped compare to India. China is under technical embargo from the west. No access to technology or consultancy from either the west of Soviet union(Russia) So they have to either reverse engineer, or inventing themselves I doubt the accusation of theft. Because engineering is system of system knowing one piece of the puzzle does not help you to complete the jigsaw puzzle picture. And you cannot steal a complete system

    Another thing is the speed and safety record. It is only in 2012 that Liaoning is commissioned you weren't here when the Liaoning was launched A lot of discussion on this forum . Some member predict it will take China decades to master the operation of CBG and alot of Kaboom. Well It does not take that long . Remember these pilot are seasoned PLAAF pilot before they joined PLAN AF So aside from take off and landing they are true blue fighter pilot
    With 3 known accident they have a good record compare to the experience of other navies

    @Viktor Jav @manqiangrexue as the major member of this IMO plain stupid, inappropriate and most of all OFF-topic - since in no way related to the J-15 - discussion.

    STOP this right now and the one with another reply will get a time out. This is a warning.

    SAC do have J15 with WS-10 long times ago, but it dosn't service in Liaoning CV.
    For this one, we don't know it is the new produces or the old one.

    To admit I don't know and the most important question is: How recently was this image taken?

    At first sight it looks to me like an old image of the no. 554 prototype, which was once fitted with the WS-10 but later converted back to AL-31F
