    I am now hoping that next batch has indigenous engines WS-10H on J15B

    more power gives more range and payload

    CV-17 would have more capability than CV-16 but I guess J15B can operate off any carrier

    Don’t Underestimate China’s Flying Shark
    The evolution of the J-15 Into a world leading carrier-based fighter and its implications.
    By Abraham Ait (November 17, 2018)

    Since their entry into service in 2012 onboard China’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, the J-15 Flying Shark twin engine air superiority fighter has been frequently criticized for its highly limited capabilities. The fighter’s heavy weight combined with the lack of either steam or electromagnetic catapult systems (EMALS) onboard the Liaoning meant that the J-15 was seriously restricted in its fuel carriage and weapons payload — resulting in a missile arsenal a fraction the size of those deployed by U.S. Navy’s jets and a negligible combat radius around the carrier. The aircraft’s lack of advanced radar evading capabilities, at a time when the U.S. and British navies were preparing to induct their first carrier based stealth fighters — the F-35B and C variants — gave further grounds to criticize the J-15’s potential. Perhaps most significantly, however, the three accidents involving J-15 fighters in their first half decade of service were cited by many analysts as proof that China was far from capable of becoming a major carrier power for the foreseeable future — at least not until the Flying Shark could be replaced by a lighter and more reliable fighter.

    I thought it was rather interesting that the author noted about the USN's retired F-14s. Nevertheless, for me anyways, I will be closely watching the development of the PLAN's J-15 and the PLAAF's J-20 - the foremost vanguard of China's future air superiority.

    J15B with more powerful engines should allow greater range, more weapons and wider operating envelope

    I hope we see it soon

    CV-17 with J15B and J15D EW

    Just to clarify, we're calling the J-15B the catapult launched version?

    So far, indeed ... however the issue on when will we see it or what type will be produced is still an open one.

    On a side note, I once again had a "nice" discussion with our old friend "Forbin" exactly on this question:

    Anyway, PLAN is happy with the current production rate of J-15, so why bother?

    "with the current production rate"???? I thought it was stopped after no. 123? ... at least we have not seen any aircraft with a number larger than this.
