    Having new supply of Russian engines does not seem like a motivation to draw a picture, let alone pose them in the foreground. I have become conditioned to seeing drawn pictures or caricatures to indicate new things.

    And what if the new thing isn't the engine, but the airplanes? (That's the angle my first post was coming from, anyways).

    Strange. Looks a bit like AL-31Fs with the seal between the petals removed. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Much of the information (maybe everything, I can't say for sure) is sourced from pb.

    Maybe it's what is tentatively known as the "PL-20".

    They're Al-31FN engines, as you can see from the tubing on the side (the WS-10 has no such tubing):
