    Not power available is the limitation but speed over the ramp. They reach 80 kts without rockets and more speed isn't possible.

    IMO it is not how much ordinances that the J-15 can carry taking off but how much it can bring back. Does anyone know its bring back limitation?

    Russian Su-33 has a maximum landing weight of 26000 kg. Shouldn't be too far from that for J-15.

    If that figure is true then there's no issue with bring back weight. That's basically 2 tons of fuel and another 4+ tons of ordnance. Enough for all sort of missions. 2 antiship missiles+ AAMs, or even 4 antiship missiles and no AAMs, a heavy AAM loadout for air superiority, various ground strike missions (6 500 kg bombs or 3 1000 kg bombs) etc.

    The aircraft is turning immediately after airborne. I think that is reserved for catapulted aircraft.

    The "modified" WS-10 on these J-15 implies that it has been modified for naval saline environment? Is there anyone on the know about the use of indigenous engines in J-15 - like the percentage of birds that use these Naval WS-10. Any reason not to believe the WS-15 is also poised to have a naval version?

    None of those J-15s in the last few pictures or gifs use WS-10
